Group Discounts

Kids at a screening

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 Filmhouse 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 on 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 Belmont 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!
