• Bradford on Film is back - with a very special offer!

    We’re celebrating the sights and sounds of Bradford as Pictureville Cinema opens its doors today to welcome audiences back to the big screen once again. And what better way to kick start the programme than with two special presentation screenings of Bradford on Film, with fabulous local footage from every decade selected from, and presented by, the Yorkshire Film Archive.
