"Too wet to walk around the Lakes? Then head to the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal instead."
Newcastle's unique 'picture palace' was created in 1937 with mosaics and an oriental-themed décor. After a £7 million restoration project, the cinema reopened two years ago, with state-of-the-art screening technology and three cafés. Choose from four screens, including The Classic, which retains its original Art Deco features.

Picturehouse at FACT
A short walk from Liverpool Central is Ropewalks - site of the first Beatles gig, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of FACT. Enjoy everything from blockbusters to foreign-language films here and watch out for Liverpool Film Night at FACT in November, a chance for local film makers to shine.

The Palace Cinema
Malton's family-run cinema has comfy seats, plenty of leg room and bags of theatrical heritage. The opulent Palace Theatre opened in 1934 and although the stage and stalls were converted into a shopping mall in the 1980s, this Grade II-listed building is still a wonderful place to see the latest films.

Brewery Arts Centre
Too wet to walk around the Lakes? Then head to the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal instead. Catch brand new blockbusters and special Silver and Parent & Baby screenings in the main cinema or feed your imagination at The Warehouse, with its programme of art-house and foreign-language titles.

The Cameo picturehouse
The Cameo in Edinburgh is one of Scotland's oldest surviving cinemas and, amazingly, its Edwardian décor is still mostly intact! Sadly, the live orchestra that once accompanied the silent screenings is long gone, but the cinema's beautiful auditorium remains largely the same.
