Picturehouse Cinemas

Company Description

City Screen was formed in 1989 to challenge the multiplex model and provide cinemas that serve their communities in city-centre locations.

We are now the leading independent cinema operator with 20 sites in our group, and the fourth largest circuit in the UK. Independent, art-house and foreign-language films have always been central to our profile.

Equally, each of our cinemas is programmed in response to its local audience, and most of our venues have mainstream blockbusters and quality crossover titles in the mix.

Our first cinema was the Phoenix in Oxford, which was bought as a going concern when the previous owners retired.

In 1992 we opened our first custom-built cinema, Clapham Picturehouse, and since then we have grown steadily through a mixture of new builds and acquisitions, particularly in London and university cities such as Cambridge, Edinburgh, Brighton and York.

In December 2010 we launched the theatrical distribution arm of our company, Picturehouse Entertainment, with the aim of releasing up to six feature films every year. Picturehouse Entertainment releases to date include: My Afternoons with Margueritte, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, The Future, Romantics Anonymous, The Source, Electrick Children, The Bird, The Imposter and Liberal Arts.

Venue Hire

Our 20 cinemas are available for hire. All the venues are unique and located in the heart of local communities in London and cities across the UK.

We offer a wide range of facilities to suit your private-hire and conferencing needs, from screen / auditorium hires to fully licensed bars with catering.
