YSFF – Celebrate Abbeydale Picture House’s One Hundredth Birthday

Abbeydale Picture House turned one hundred years old in December 2020. Our plans to celebrate this moment were frustrated by Covid regulations, but six months later it’s time to re-light the
birthday candles and wish the Abbeydale Picture House a belated 100th birthday!

Join us on June 20th for a day of live cinema – silent films with live musical accompaniment provided by the acclaimed Frame Ensemble and musicians from Yorkshire Silent Film Festival. Audience numbers are limited to enable social distancing and all events will take place in line with the Covid regulations in force on the day. All tickets must be booked online and in advance – tickets will not be sold on the doors. As always, YSFF events at Abbeydale Picture House are FREE for young people aged 18 and under.
