Following a relocation to GRUB at Red Bank, the Chapeltown Picture House is set to reopen on Friday 30th October with a horror program for Halloween weekend.

The selection consists of horror classics and cult favourites: Mandy, The Living Dead at the
Manchester Morgue, The Thing, and Scream.

Situated in the top floor of GRUB, the new Chapeltown Picture House features a space
that can be adapted for film screenings, video game sessions, live podcast recordings,
comedy shows, talks, and more.

The Picture House is positioned to become the home for all things nerdy in Manchester. The 4K projector is powered by a top-of-the-line gaming PC with an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card at its heart, ensuring the ultimate gaming experience on the big screen or in VR.

“We’re really excited to bring people together at the cinema says but in a safe way, of course! Going to the cinema always helps me escape reality for 90 minutes — and I know we can provide that for cinemagoers in a safe environment.”

(Tobias Soar, Picture House Manager)

The Picture House has several measures in place to give guests peace of mind
regarding Covid-19.

These measures include commercial-grade AeraMax Pro air purifiers, socially distanced seating, a one-way entry and exit system, and a fully contactless and cashless ordering experience for drinks and popcorn.

Halloween at the Chapeltown Picture House takes place at GRUB on Friday 30 October,
Saturday 31st October, and Sunday 1st November.

All events are ticketed and you can purchase tickets from our website. Full details of the screenings can be found here.
