Broadway Cinema

Location: 14-18 Broad Street, NG1 3AL

Student Ticket price: £5.50

The true home of Nottingham’s cinematic culture, Broadway is the place to find the niche and the unusual.

Broadway is also the epicentre of many of Nottingham’s film festivals and events.

Screen 22 

Location: 25 Broad Street, NG7 3AP

Something of a hidden gem, Screen 22 is a stone throw away from Broadway cinema. Usually only used for private hire screenings, Screen 22 is the self-proclaimed ‘smallest cinema in the world’ with a mere 22 seats (clever name eh?) within.

 

EVENTS

Mayhem Film Festival – 15th-18th October

Classic screenings, previews, and special guests are just some of the exciting things going on in this year’s Mayhem Film Festival. With Broadway at the heart of the festival, it will be a truly fantastic weekend of film. We’ll be there, will you?

Beeston Film Festival – 19th-21st February

The Beeston Film Festival returns for its second year. Though little has been announced about the next festival, the last one was a huge success, showing over 60 short films from over 20 countries. This success is expected to be repeated in February so it is well worth keeping an eye out for news.

Film Clubs

Nottingham has a thriving film community, with clubs screening everything from cult classics to concert films and everything in-between. Many of the clubs are centred around Broadway, and frequent collaborations lead to many exciting entertainment opportunities.

As you can see, there is a huge range of cinematic opportunities available in Nottingham. So go on, get involved, and have a fantastic year!
