Admission and Further Information

Single Ticket (at door) £5 - Or book online (use links in the Current Film pages)

Student Ticket : £3.50 available to students with ID. On the door tickets only. Students must be of an appropriate age for the certification of the film that they wish to attend. The student concession is not available when booking online.

Season Ticket (when available): £25 – A Season Ticket admits one person to any seven films of their choice and offers a substantial reduction for entry. Currently available for 2021 only (does not include fundraiser or any special event screenings). Season tickets are not available when booking online. Please ask at the door if you wish to purchase one. Starting in January 2022, season tickets will not be available until we are able to operate without the current restrictions on capacity. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

All films are shown on Fridays (unless otherwise stated) at 8.00pm in the Assembly Rooms which are located in the centre of Presteigne (see below). Refreshments are usually available beforehand, although while subject to Covid rules we cannot promise this for every film. Doors are open at 7:30 pm.
(S) indicates subtitles, where known.

Seats are limited within the auditorium and we will be adapting their numbers and configuration as we see what works best in regard to safe social distancing. Unless booked in advance seats cannot be guaranteed so please come early to avoid disappointment.

Films running over 130 minutes may be shown with a short interval.
The Assembly Rooms has three toilets available.

According to the Welsh government regulations (as of August 2021) audience members must wear a mask while in cinemas and we are subject to that rule. Please bring a mask and be prepared to wear it while attending. You may remove masks when seated. We will review the regulations as they are updated.

During our initial screenings, as we try to assess how we operate in these Covid-conscious days, seating capacity will be limited (at present to 55 customers) and we will only be able to guarantee seats for pre-booked ticket holders. There will be at least 30 tickets available online per screening. We also ask that those who have pre-booked to please come early so that we can seat further audience arrivals as safely as possible.

See our Covid-19 page for other details (under the Further Information menu above).

We encourage use of the online advance-booking system as it minimises queueing and helps with social distancing. Where the Book Tickets button is visible you will be taken to WeGotTickets who securely handle credit card payments for events. A fee of 50p per ticket is added by them to cover the handling of payments. You will be sent an email confirmation and your name then goes on a list at the door. Booking in advance will guarantee a place but bear in mind that we do not have numbered seating. Although this is not intended to replace on-the-door tickets or season tickets, if there is very high demand online ticket allocation may be adjusted and some screenings may sell out in advance through online sales.

Advance-booking for Borderlines Film Festival screenings is also available through the Courtyard Central Box Office. Details at their website and in the festival brochure.

Disabled access to the upper floor is temporarily unavailable as the lift is being replaced.


Venue: The Assembly Rooms, Broad Street, Presteigne LD8 2AD

The Assembly Rooms are situated above the Library which is in the centre of Presteigne at the junction of the High Street and Broad Street, the entrance being below the clock tower and approached past the short run of railings to the left of the library window. In colder weather the door may be closed to retain heat in the building so don't be put off from trying the handle!
