As close to the screen as you can get in Leeds

While there is an abundance of culture and artistic influence in West Yorkshire, there is often little space for independent and foreign language films to gain a platform. That’s why Minicine have, since 2010, dedicated themselves to screening the best of independent and foreign language (both cult and classic) cinema for Yorkshire audiences that would more than likely never get to experience it.

A member of Cinema For All, Minicine were awarded the Engholm Prize for Film Society of the Year in 2015, and also pride themselves on beating the competition to receive awards for Best Film Programming and Best Marketing and Publicity.

Despite their success, Minicine do not run for profit. They currently screen each month at The Palace Picturehouse in Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills – a 26-seat replica 1920s cinema, adorned with red velvet curtains and gas lamps for that authentic, classic feel. Previous locations for events include: The Arch Café51% Bourbon, The Maven and the former Dock Street Market in Leeds city centre, as well as the Polish Parish Club in Bradford and The Orangery in Wakefield.

Minicine offer audiences an alternative to the impersonality of the contrived commercial cinema experience. With short films and free refreshments at their events, if you like homemade cake, this may just be the place for you.

Minicine has been, is and always will be open to everybody.
