Event description
A day of events to celebrate the 100th birthday of Sheffield's Abbeydale Picture House

About this Event

On December 20th 1920, the Abbeydale Picture House opened its doors to an audience for the first time with a matinee screening of the new British film The Call of the Road. Almost fifty-five years later, on July 5th 1975, it showed its final film and closed. Over the last six years, the Abbeydale has been reborn as a working venue for weddings, live music, and for film. There is nowhere more immersive and enchanting to experience live-scored silent film than here, on the Abbeydale’s vast screen, within the auditorium’s beautiful musical acoustic. This is what the Abbeydale Picture House was built for and what it does best. Although Covid-19 means we can’t fill the auditorium on December 20th, we can gather in smaller numbers to celebrate the centenary of this beautiful building and the art form that brought it into being in the first place.

This is the day’s programme:

11.00am - 12.00pm Funny Business - with Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy (with live piano by Jonny Best)

1.00pm - 2.00pm Sheffield’s Cinema Heritage - an illustrated talk

3.00pm - 4.00pm The Brilliant Biograph: earliest moving images of Europe (1898-1902) with live score by Frame Ensemble

5.30pm - 7.00pm Buster Keaton in The General (with live piano and percussion by Jonny Best and Trevor Bartlett)

8.45pm - 10.15pm Marlene Dietrich in The Woman Men Long For (with live score by Frame Ensemble)

Each event is bookable separately, and a limited number of discounted all-day tickets are available. The total cost of individual tickets is £48; the all-day ticket offers a £13 discount. If you are purchasing all-day tickets for a household or bubbled group, please purchase all tickets for the group in a single transaction. All-day tickets are sold as single tickets, two-person tickets, and three-person tickets. If your household or bubble is larger than three, please contact YSFF via the contact button at the botton of this page to discuss your ticketing needs. We will do our best to accommodate you, subject to Covid-19 regulations and the venue's strict total audience capacity of 100.

Covid-19 measures - please read before booking.

The box office is now open on the basis that the national lockdown will end as planned on 3rd December. Should Abbeydale Picture House not be permitted to open on December 20th, refunds will be processed promptly.

In order to enable social distancing, the cinema’s capacity is reduced to a quarter of its usual size. Ticket availability is strictly limited. Tickets must be purchased in advance, online. No tickets will be sold on the door.

We ask that ticket purchasers mix only with members of their own household or their support bubble. If you are visiting the Abbeydale as part of a household or bubbled group, you must book all your tickets for this event in a single transaction. If the number of tickets you require is not available (either because it appears we are sold out, or because your household/bubble is larger than four) it may still be possible to accommodate your booking (subject to the Covid-19 regulations in force at the time and the strict total venue capacity limit of 100 seats). Please contact YSFF via the button below to discuss your needs.

Specific seats will be allocated to each booking - unfortunately it will not be possible for audience members to select their own seats. An entry time is specified for each event, either fifteen minutes or thirty minutes before the start. To help us achieve successful social distancing, please arrive as close to the time specified on your tickets as possible. If you arrive early, please remain away from the Abbeydale until the arrival time specified on your ticket. If you are visiting as a household/bubbled group, please arrive together as a group.

Performances will start promptly at the time specified on tickets. If you arrive after this time, we may not be able to admit you. Should this be the case, we will be unable to offer refunds.
