During the film low lights are left on inside the auditorium and the volume of the soundtrack is reduced. It is fine for customers to move around, make a noise or take a break during the film if they need to.

On the first Tuesday of every month Stratford Picturehouse will screen 2 films from the main programme with an interval at half time for those of you that find sitting down for a full 2 hours a struggle.
Become a member of the cinema club and receive a membership card entitling you to reduced ticket prices and all cinema club screenings and unlimited free tea/coffee and biscuits!
The cinema doors open at 12noon and the films start at 1pm. Tea/coffee and biscuits are available from the upstairs bar area, before, during and after the screenings so you can chat about the movie with other cinema club members.
