Cinema is coming back to the heart of the Odeon! Storyhouse’s new boutique 100-seat cinema will screen a range of classic, independent and blockbuster films.

You can expect some of the latest blockbuster releases, indie hits, world cinema, family screenings and big-screen classics. Also, keep an eye out for our special series of themed and festival movies, such as the Women of the World Festival, Pride at the Pictures, and Not So Wasted Youth.

Main features
The first ever screening in the brand-new  cinema on Friday 12 May was the much-anticipated wartime drama Their Finest. Since then, we’ve featured everything from sci-fi thrillers and family comedies to historical epics and romantic dramas.

World cinema
International cinema will also be coming to Chester; Oscar-winning foreign language film to lesser known independents, from established and emerging directors from around the globe.

Family Saturdays
Saturday mornings in Storyhouse will be a place for families to watch a movie together. Every Saturday at 11am there will be a family film screened, with accompanying film-themed free arts and crafts in the library.

Event cinema
Storyhouse will be bringing the best of British theatre and opera to Chester by screening National Theatre and Royal Opera House productions live.

Classic films
As well as blockbusters, independent, world and family films, the classics will return to the original Odeon with a series of reissues. Revisit an old classic or discover one for the first time on the big screen.

Film seasons
Don’t miss our specially curated film seasons, which will either be stand-alone or programmed as part of a wider festival. These include a series of films directed by women at various stages of their careers for the WOW: Women of the World festival, seminal and groundbreaking LGBTQ+ films with Chester Pride for Pride at the Pictures, or a series of films centred on or around young people with Not So Wasted Youth.
