PIN Dulwich Picturehouse
Picturehouse cinemas is a UK arthouse chain (films of unusual genres generally conveying a sense of surrealism) owned by the second largest cinema operator in Europe, Cineworld. There are nine Picturehouse cinemas in London in architecturally unique venues – Clapham, Crouch End, Gate (Notting Hill), Greenwich, Stratford, Hackney, East Dulwich, Picturehouse Central and Ritzy in Brixton.
The East Dulwich Picturehouse and restaurant celebrated its first birthday in April 2016 and is an important part of the vibrant East Dulwich area. On the site of a former church hall, it was opened by the request of local community members themselves. If you walk past the Cinema, you will notice a poster saying ‘OUR MEMBERS MAKE US’ and the restaurant area proudly shows off around 2,000 names of founding members listed on the wall. The number of Picturehouse members is growing fast as it is definitely a place worth re-visiting.
From mainstream cinema to time-tested classics and foreign films, Dulwich Picturehouse will not disappoint movie lovers of any age, ability or preference. The Cinema is greatly appreciated and an integral part of the Dulwich community, loved by locals and also visited by famous people like Richard Ayoade (Maurice in the IT Crowd), Terence Stamp and the late Alan Rickman.
Food and Drinks
The terrace and restaurant is what makes the Dulwich Picturehouse distinctive as it takes cinema snacks and soda drinks to a whole new level. Seasonal wine lists, hand-made pastries and 'proper' meals on the main menu are sourced locally e.g. meats from the local butcher, W Bunting and William Rose (beef from the Scottish glens, free range Sutton Hoo chickens). When I say it ‘takes you to a whole new level’, I genuinely mean it – Dulwich Picturehouse even uses herbs grown on their own roof garden! The cinema restaurant gives you a chance to really make a day from your visit; it is a perfect place to start a perfect evening.
CLUBS AND GROUPS
Every Wednesday and Friday mornings at 11am, parents and carers with babies under one year are welcome to join the BIG SCREAM club. If you fear that your baby will start crying during the screening and cause disturbance – Big Scream is a club that says it’s completely fine. The club membership is free (expires on your baby’s first birthday) and the tickets for adults are slightly cheaper than usual prices.
Weekly listing include screenings with subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, Dulwich Picturehouse aims to include everyone in the community from Students to over 60s. The cinema offers discounts, free memberships and opportunities to meet new people and share the amazing experience at a fair price.
