The Abbeydale Picture House is a stunning, Grade ll listed former cinema located in Sheffield. It originally opened in 1920 and was referred to as Sheffield's Picture Palace at the time because of its glamorous cream and gold colour scheme, period plaster, stained glass windows and turrets. The building closed as a cinema in 1975 and was then used as an office furniture showroom until the 1970s. Since 2005, it has very much been a restoration project, with money from events helping to restore the building to its former glory.
We love transforming The Abbeydale Picture House into a retro cinema for regular screening events. We did our first event at The Abbeydale Picture House in May 2017, with a screening of Moulin Rouge accompanied by delicious street food, a DJ, live music and two pop up bars. Since then we have done Christmas events, a Romeo & Juliet themed event and a screening of 10 Things I Hate About You for Valentine's.
