Hyde Park Picture House image

Despite the outbreak of war in August 1914, the Hyde Park Picture House was built and opened ready for business on the 7th November 1914. It is a grade II listed building and is the only gas lit cinema remaining in use in the UK.

With an extensive film collection, there really is something for everyone, no matter what you are interested in or your age. Take a look at their website to see which film appeals to you.

Every Saturday at 12 midday they screen matinee films aimed at children and families. Parents, carers and the kids at heart can come along (for £4.60), and children who are old enough are welcome to stay and watch the film without supervision (although Picture House staff cannot be responsible for them).

There is also the option of BYOB (Bring Your Own Baby!) BYOB screenings are a chance for the parents and carers of babies up to 12months old to get to the cinema without leaving the little one at home.

With raised lighting levels, baby changing and bottle warming facilities and free tea or coffee for each grown-up we aim to make these screenings as comfortable for you as possible. Doors open at 10.30am, if you want to come down early and catch up with friends, and the film starts around 11.15am. Due to limited space, we advise people to bring babies in slings or car-seats where possible. Numbers are limited for BYOB showings, so it is advisable to book in advance, particularly for the more well known films.

Don't miss out on this amazing attraction!
