Having celebrated its centenary in 2014, Hyde Park Picture House is really one of the best things in Leeds. Set in the very centre of the Hyde Park student area, nestled in between the terraces, this period building has nestled itself into the hearts and minds of Leeds residents, with an identity that perfectly reflects the city. An ornate if slightly worn-in art deco and terracotta structure, it is Leeds' premier arthouse cinema, showing a range of films from recent blockbusters to indie classics.
Not just a cinema, but an innovative attraction, the Picture House also features a number of experimental shows; past events have included instrumental folk music group A Hawk and Hacksaw performing a new soundtrack to Soviet director Sergio Paradjanov’s film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, and Adam Buxton’s cult, much-loved BUG show. Hyde Park Picture House is a concentrated force of creative energy and experimentation right next door to your mate’s house. A must-visit location.
