Cinema Partnership

How we bring film to you

We are now in partnership with the Picturehouse national cinema group to bring you the best in film from around the world. This enterprise – Picturehouse at National Media Museum – sees Picturehouse Cinemas taking over the operation of the Museum’s three screens – Pictureville, described by Lord Puttnam as ‘The best cinema in the world’, Cubby Broccoli Cinema and Europe’s first IMAX screen.

This is fantastic for you and the Museum as it ensures the long-term sustainability of our cinemas here in Bradford, UNESCO's first City of Film. It also means that we can bring you more great films on the date of release, stream more live events, and invest in our technology and facilities to give an even better experience.
