Really had a great morning here as part of the film festival. This is a charming place that deserves as much support as it can get.

The Hyde Park tries to show a great mix of blockbusters and art house & world cinema, and is great at covering all bases. They have good programme of events for all the community and staff really know and love their movie "stuff". As opposite from the chain multiplexes as you can get (never any rowdy customers, not really bothered... More

Old fashioned in the best possible way, Hyde Park Picture House reminds you why you used to love going to the cinema. I wish I lived closer, I'd go much more often.

We always visit this cinema when the Leeds film festival is on each year and also subscribe by e-mail to their events etc. Although its a bit of a trip for us from Yeadon to get here its the only cinema we go to these days. It has great 'heritage' (is that the correct word?) and the charm of the... More

When I first went to the HP picture house, over 30 years ago, it was shabby, smelt of strange tobacco and had seats that were less than comfortable. I stuck with, it taking my then young children to Saturday mornings and catching independent /foreign films myself. It was well worth it. The seats are improved, although don't expect VIP type...

A great experience, the Hyde Park Picture House is a beautiful small and very old cinema, full of character. They show a great variety of films, a lot of them which you wouldn't see in multiplex cinemas. A must for any cinema lovers!

If you are looking for a cinema to watch the latest cinematic special effects block buster with high definition sound experience then this is not the place for you. If you want a nice couple of hours with maybe a drink in hand watching a good film in small but perfectly comfortable surroundings and that certain charm that you know... More

I usually frequent this beautiful vintage cinema during the Leeds international film festival! It's an absolute joy, if you love cinema in all its old Hollywood glamour, this is the place to visit! A great selection of films shown all year round ✨🌟, and at Xmas old classics like 'it's a wonderful life'. A gem of a cinema house 😊

Like going back in time a visit to this cinema is always a pleasure. The selection of films is varied and interesting and the staff could not be more pleasant.
