The Thornbury Picture House is run by people who are passionate about film and about bringing a local, independent cinema to Thornbury.

Screening a mix of new releases, documentaries, cult & classic movies, kids’ films and festival highlights, we hope that we’ve got you covered.  We love to support local filmmakers as much as possible and we make our screen available for short film screenings, cast and crew events and film premieres. 

Some of our other film related projects are Blow Up Cinema, a mobile outdoor cinema, documentary film production co. Gusto Films and our long running short film event, Red Hot Shorts.
