The National Science and Media Museum and Picturehouse Cinemas bring you the best in film from around the world in the Museum’s beloved screens: Pictureville, described by Lord Puttnam as “the best cinema in the world”, the cosy Cubby Broccoli cinema – named after the famous James Bond producer - and Europe’s very first IMAX screen!

Bradford’s IMAX cinema has undergone dramatic changes in the summer of 2015. With a brand new digital projection system and improved seating, the National Science and Media Museum and Picturehouse Cinemas are now able to provide more new releases on the region’s biggest screen, plus more leg room and a premium area with the best seat in the house!
