The Hyde Park Picture House is a Grade II listed cinema built in 1914, which makes it one of the oldest cinemas in Leeds!

The cinema is a working, commercial cinema and is open daily for film screenings and special events.Our free projection room tours give you the chance to get behind the scenes at the cinema, where you can learn about the history of film projection and how it works today.

We're offering these tours as part of Heritage Open Days 2019, England's largest festival of history and culture.

Across the country, from 13-22 September, over 1,500 organisations will open their doors and invite visitors to experience local history, architecture and culture, free of charge.
