With a history spanning more than a century (it opened just after the First World War), the Hyde Park Picture House is one of the UK's oldest cinemas. It's now looked after by the Leeds Grand Theatre and Opera House Limited - an independent organisation dedicated to securing and preserving some of Leeds historically important venues.
A selection of the big new releases feature alongside special screenings, double bills and sessions for parents or carers and their children (films are shown with raised light levels, lower volume and subtitles where available). Art films and documentaries are shown, too.

- There aren’t many writer-directors who could tell a story of small-town rape, murder, grief and guilt at the same time as taking you down all sorts of black-comic paths and having immense fun with the writing and acting along the way. But Martin M...Read more
- Hitchcock used to say that if one of his movies was working, you could follow it with the sound off. By the same measure, he’d have approved of this taciturn Chilean character piece. It’s a quietly devastating story of prejudice that often seems t...Read more
