Cine Yorkshire brings a high quality digital cinema experience to communities across North Yorkshire who would otherwise have to travel long distances to see the latest film releases.
Cine Yorkshire is one of three rural cinema pilot initiatives in the UK, aimed at bringing a high quality and modern digital cinema experience to local audiences underserved by cinema provision.
From village halls to stately homes, festivals and arts centres, we work with partners and venues across North Yorkshire to screen a range of content, including the latest film releases, arthouse favourites, screen classics, archive gems, live theatre and music events.
Cine Yorkshire is a consortium helmed by the National Media Museum, Screen Yorkshire and community arts company Blaize, supported by the British Film Insitute through Lottery Funding.
The National Media Museum in Bradford, West Yorkshire, opened as the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford in 1983, with a remit to explore the art and science of the image and image-making, and has since become one of the most visited UK museums outside London.
