Reel Steel Cult Weekender is back for 2020

We are delighted to welcome Reel Steel back for their Cult Weekender, taking place Friday March 13th – Sunday March 15th.

The Reel Steel Cult Weekender is a celebration of films which hold a ‘classic’ or ‘cult’ status in cinema. Taking place at this iconic Grade II listed 1920’s picture palace, we believe it will truly bring the sense of occasion to match some of cinema’s most beloved films.

If you want to make the most of it, a weekend ticket (£24.00 + booking fee)  gives entry to ALL films over the weekend.

Weekend ticket holders will also be able to take part in a special 35mm film projection booth tour at the Abbeydale Picture House, ahead of one of our two 35mm Studio Ghibli screenings – details on how to book will be e-mailed to you.
