For a limited season New Mills Art Theatre are launching the Art Picture Playhouse taking it back to the original days of the theatre over 50 years ago.
This will bring second showing movies right into the heart of the New Mills community for all to enjoy.
There will a variety of films for all ages, some classics others new releases giving us all a chance to support our local, unique, 500 seater theatre in the company of family and friends. Enjoy the magic of the movies together with ice creams, snacks and drinks available at the interval.
These are great events to go to on those dark winter afternoons without the need to travel far, where you can have a laugh at the comedy, gasp at the special effects and contemplate how the movie will end. (Happily I expect!)
All films will be presented in 5.1 surround sound, so immerse yourselves in the ambience of the theatre and the action of the movie.
Adult Tickets will be £3.00 and Children £1.50 with a family ticket admitting up to six costing £10.00, a saving of £2.00. Please pay on the day at the box office, doors open at 1.30pm.
All monies raised will go to the continued upkeep and running costs of the theatre, which is run solely by volunteers.
We plan to screen the films on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon at 2.00pm.
