To celebrate the reopening of cinemas in May, Chapeltown Picture House is putting on a week of “films about cinema” featuring Inglorious Basterds, Cinema Paradiso, Tropic Thunder, Demons, Last Action Hero and Singin’ in the Rain, alongside the fan-favourite Lord of the Rings trilogy in stunning 4K.

Situated in the top floor of GRUB, the new Chapeltown Picture House features a space that can be adapted for film screenings, video game sessions, live podcast recordings, comedy shows, talks, and more.

The Picture House is positioned to become the home for all things nerdy in Manchester. The 4K projector is powered by a top-of-the-line gaming PC with an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card at its heart, ensuring the ultimate gaming experience on the big screen or in VR.

“It’s been a long winter, and we can’t wait to welcome people back to the cinema.” says Tobias Soar, Picture House Manager “It’s all about celebrating what makes the cinema experience so special. Some films weren’t meant for streaming — they deserve the big screen, a dark room, and an audience”.

The Picture House has several measures in place to give guests peace of mind regarding Covid-19. These measures include commercial-grade AeraMax Pro air purifiers, socially distanced seating, a one-way entry and exit system, and a fully contactless and cashless ordering experience for drinks, popcorn, and ice cream.

Re-re opening week at the Chapeltown Picture House takes place at GRUB on the week starting Monday 17th May. All events are ticketed and you can purchase tickets below…
