Buxton Cinema reopens after being closed for more than 16 months

After 16 long months of closure, it’s showtime again at Buxton Cinema. High Peak audiences are once again enjoying the magic of the movies without having to travel out of the area, at a fraction of the cost of a multiplex.

Blockbuster movies 

The cinema re-opened to audiences on Saturday 31st July with some of this year’s biggest movies, starting with family favourite Peter Rabbit 2 and Disney’s Cruella, plus the nerve-shredding A Quiet Place Part II.  Also in August don’t miss Oscar winners Nomadland (including Best Picture and Best Actress for Frances McDormand) and The Father (Best Actor for Anthony Hopkins) plus Dream Horse, the heart-warming true story of the race horse who rose from humble origins in a small Welsh town to run in the Welsh Grand National. Alongside this year’s releases there’s another opportunity to see much-loved classics Brassed Off and Bhaji on the Beach.

National Theatre Live makes a welcome return

National Theatre Live is back with Stephen Sondheim’s Follies and Romeo & Juliet starring Jessie Buckley, Tamsin Greig and Adrian Lester, shot in the National Theatre’s backstage areas which makes Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way.

Buxton Film brings its own programme of specialised and independent films, with Portrait of a Lady on Fire which was due to be shown before lockdown, plus the moving Nowhere Special set in Northern Ireland.
