Welcome to  Thornbury Picture House 

International Cinema on your doorstep in the Cossham Hall.


























Thornbury Picture House believes that a good film deserves to be seen on a large screen with good sound and in the presence of a sizeable audience to build the atmosphere and heighten the emotions.

You can watch films at home any time, but watching on a local wide screen is an altogether different experience.

Non-members are very welcome.

Patrons who are not paid-up members of TPH, and guests of members, may purchase tickets, subject to availability, at the desk on club nights' priced at £5.00.

Admission is subject to the Film Classification Certificate.





Have you ever wanted to leave the car at home and walk to a local film venue, one with a warm friendly atmosphere, where you can chat about the film afterwards with your friends?

We did, so we decided to create a film club: Our club name, Thornbury Picture House (TPH) , was inspired by the old cinema (1919-1959) in the High Street, which was renowned for being the social hub of Thornbury. We are now looking forward to our 10th season, just take a look at our programme and we have a strong membership base to take the club forward. We meet usually once a month, for the last 6 years in the historic Cossham Hall, Chapel Street, Thornbury, BS35 2BJ.

Email us at films@thornburypicturehouse.org if you have a comment or suggestion for the committee.
