“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Hyde Park Picture House is one of a kind, a beautiful little cinema with plenty of character. Showing a mix of new releases, arty and cult films why you’d ever go to a multi-plex when you can got to HPPH is completely beyond me. Very reasonably priced (entry and refreshments) with friendly and knowledgeable staff , the only problem is not letting the gorgeous surroundings distract you from the film you’re watching.

“A true gem in the crown of Indie Leeds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Excellent films, excellent people, and a beautiful Grade II listed historic building, complete with red velvet curtain and Georgian balcony. The Hyde Park Picture House is on of the last independent, art house cinemas and is a treasure. A must-see in Leeds!
