At Picturedrome Cinemas we pride ourselves on giving our customers a unique environment to see films and events using state of the art technology. We provide an excellent, friendly service and ensure the experience is value for money.



It is the policy of Picturedrome Cinemas that the pricing of tickets is kept as low as possible to make it accessible for our patrons. In addition our food and drinks have been reasonably priced too.

Therefore, we ask that you do not bring food and drinks purchased from outside sources. If you do so we will ask you to leave it behind the counter until the end of the film.



Our alcohol sales are restricted to certain films depending on the certificate, content, and time of day. Ask our staff which of our current films you can enjoy an alcoholic drink in.



 We appreciate that at some points the cinema is extremely busy. We have designed a queuing system to help ease congestion. We ask our customers to be patient and listen to the staff instructions. If you have booked your tickets in advance, please have the card you used for payment ready. If you do not have the card, we are able to accept the booking ID of your transaction.
