Tuesday 10 December at 10.30am   1h25  U  P1-P7  Advisory: Contains mild scary scenes  Literacy, English, Expressive Arts  £3/free for teachers

The fuzzy felt creatures we know and love are back for their annual Christmas outing! A fun but meaningful adaptation, Scrooge is so miserly he won’t even allow his fuzzy employees an extra piece of coal for the fire at Christmas. His deceased business partners, who appear to him one night and tell him that he must face up to his misdeeds, do not tolerate such meanness. And so he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.

Group Discounts

Primary screening at Filmhouse


We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Belmont when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full  price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 01224 343 500

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of  films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we  expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which  includes switching off mobile phones.


Projection Tours

Kids looking at film during a projection tour


Are your pupils studying cinema or making their own films? Would they like to meet the Belmont projectionist and learn what goes on behind the scenes at a cinema? We can arrange a tour of the projection room and to compliment your visit we also screen a selection of international short animations. The whole visit, including tour and films lasts approximately 1 hour and costs £100 Suitable for school and community groups of up to 33. Advance booking is essential.

Please note that, although we strive to make Filmhouse as accessible as  possible, this tour is of a non-public area of the building which is up a small flight of stairs.  For accessibility needs, please contact


Kino School Screenings

Did you know you can hire our Kino Screen for school group screenings at a special schools price of £200 +VAT?

Suited to groups of approximately 40, with sofas and beanbags for ultimate comfort and toilets located within the space, this relaxed viewing space is perfect if you would like to show a film related to a topic you are studying – let us know and we can arrange a suitable screening and related learning resources for you to use back in the classroom. Or perhaps you would like to treat your class to a fun screening – Kino is ideal!

Film choice, dates and times are fully up to you! (some restrictions may apply) We received great feedback from the teachers who hired Kino Screen for end of term treats last year, and we’d love to welcome you and your class, so please get in touch if you would like to view the space or discuss options.
