WHO WE ARE

OUR NEXT SCREENING

Jesus Christ Superstar - SOLD OUT

FRIDAY MARCH 20 @ 8.15pm

Thornbury Picture House

Norman Jewison’s incredibly innovative filmic interpretation of the classic rock opera is pure seventies brilliance with an angst-ridden edge, powerhouse score and unique visual style that embodies the cinematic response to the invention of the concept album.

Introduced by Lee Gambin.

OUR NEW HOME?

Cinemaniacs are thrilled to announce our new home for the 2020 season...

The Thornbury Picture House is a beautiful, intimate Art Deco cinema on High Street, Thornbury – close to bars, restaurants, parking and public transport. They have a lovely outdoor space, great food and bar which can be enjoyed for those wanting to arrive early before sessions.
