After a difficult few months we are screening films once again


New season in September
Film starts 8 pm

*** We're pleased to announce that the lift at the Assembly Rooms has now been replaced with a shiny new model so accessibility for those with mobility issues is restored. It operates slightly differently than the old one but is faster! ***

*** Please see our Covid-19 page (under Further Information in the menu above or Click Here) for the latest information on measures that we are taking or that we are required to implement.

You can also download a printable copy of the current programme when it is available by clicking on the image at right. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar PDF viewer to access the file. Our previous leaflet will be here until then so that you can get a flavour of the sort of films we show.

If you are able to display a poster to promote the screening please click the relevant image in the row below to download a printable copy (when available). Many thanks....

The Father  7 January

[Update – April] We are increasing venue seating and capacity back to our standard configuration but still encourage advance booking of tickets. Masks are no longer required under Welsh regulations but please feel free to continue wearing one if you wish. The venue is warmer than of late, with a return to closed windows! Although clearly the latest Covid strain is very transmissible we are not aware of any infections from the virus being traced back to our screenings.

We use WeGotTickets for online advance booking and encourage people to use this to minimise time spent queueing. There will be 30 tickets available online per film. Buy Tickets buttons appear in the Current Films menu, or click the logo above. The same booking system is used by Mid Border Arts so if you've bought tickets online for MBA events your registration/login will be the same. More details in Further Information.

All our films are presented digitally. Our current projector produces a superb image which is the equal or better than the film projectors that were our mainstay in the past. Where possible we show high-definition material although occasionally distributors only make standard definition material available. We hope that you agree that it all looks great on our large cinema screen.

Now and then a booking needs to be amended and the advance printed programme cannot be changed so the website is the best way to make sure that the film you want to see is still on. Occasionally disc release dates change and this can result in a forced rescheduling of the screening. If you sign up to our email list on the Contact page you will be sent an email reminder during the week before each screening. Or enter your full address and we will include you in our posted mailing of the printed programme at the start of the season.
