New Picture House New Picture House

The New Picture House is a community cinema, which was founded in Autumn 2012 by a group of friends, all residents in the town, keen to offer an alternative to the numerous multiplexes in the region.

It was constructed using materials donated by local businesses and founded around the luxurious red velvet theatre seats reclaimed from Dewsbury Little Theatre, and it is still run entirely by volunteers.

We offer a unique cinema experience for the screening of a diverse programme of feature and short films, with a regular fortnightly programming schedule and special screenings and events throughout the year.

The New Picture House is a member of Cinema For All, a support and development organisation for community-led cinema.

We have recently moved premises to Church Street (above Heron Foods and CEX) in Dewsbury town centre, and, after several months of hard work, fully refurbishing as well as fitting out the space with power, lighting and heating, and building a new cafe / bar area, we are now delighted to announce that we will be opening at the end of January with a mini film festival, initially showing 4 films, with our full season programme to be announced shortly.

In addition to this, we have art studios, which 4 artists are currently renting; we are looking to expand this space to encourage other artists in the area to take up residency with us also.
