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 programmed 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. This is our 14th season, just take a look at our new programme and we have a strong membership base to take the club forward. We meet usually once a month, for the last 8years 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.

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" Directed by Mike Newell

The film opens with a group of Islanders out after curfew, having enjoyed an illicit roast pig and home-brewed gin even though strict food rationing was in place. Facing immediate arrest, they concoct an excuse about being members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society who have been enriching their minds while feeding on potato skins. After the war a correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton (Lily James) and members of the Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi-occupied Island of Guernsey. When an idea for a book catches Juliet, she goes to visit the island, making life-long friends and taking life changing steps along the way.

Non-members are very welcome at our regular programmed club screenings, tickets are 5.00 at the door from 7.00pm on film nights. The film programme for 2019/20 is available In the Town Hall, The Library and The Armstrong Hall and at many other outlets in and around Thornbury, a synopsis of the films selected for the 2019/20 season is available here
