About us

Since 2010, Minicine has been committed to screening the best independent and foreign language, cult and classic cinema that may not otherwise reach West Yorkshire audiences.

A proud member of Cinema For All, we were awarded the Engholm Prize for Film Society of the Year in 2015 as well as winning awards for Best Film Programming and Best Marketing and Publicity.

Not-for-profit, we currently screen each month at The Palace Picturehouse in Armley Mills Industrial Museum, in Leeds – a 26-seat replica 1920s cinema, complete with red velvet curtains and gas lamps. In the past we have held events in The Gallery at Munro House, The Arch Café, 51% 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.

We try to offer our audience an alternative to the impersonal experience of the multiplex and provide short films and free refreshments at our events too, so if you like homemade cake we may just be the place for you.

Mmm… cake…

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


We like to think of ourselves as an approachable bunch so if you have any queries about what we do, or you just want to discuss the weather, come say hello@minicine.org.uk.

One thought on “About us

  1. Hi. I really enjoyed Kenny this evening. It was my first time and I’m looking forward to seeing bicycle thieves on the 20th.I had a slight issue with the sound though. It needed to be a little louder and I was at the front. Also, I think the lights went up prematurely. There was a whole lot of dialogue going on during the closing credits which I missed since people were leaving. Otherwise very good. Cakes were brilliant. Lovely venue.David T
