reel picture house offers a sophisticated cinematic night out. Unlike other cinemas, we have tables and chairs and we give you the opportunity to meet up with friends, to have a drink, a meal and socialise before the film. With an intermission half way through the film you can stretch your legs and refresh your glass. We have a fully licensed bar, with beer from the local Red Fox Brewery, a selection of wines anda wide selection of premium soft drinks. (So whether it's your turn to drive or not, you are guaranteed to have a great night out).

reel picture house belives in serving reel, locally sourced food. Bunting's Foodstore are supplying our sausages, we have locally sourced delicious cheese boards and Hadley's ice cream from Colne Engaine are supplying home made ice cream.
