2019 Education Events at Belmont Filmhouse



Wednesday 5 June at 10.30am - **SOLD OUT**

1hr 43 mins • £3/free for teachers • English • U • Suitable for P3+ • Environmental issues

For World Environment Day 2019, we have an extra special screening of this classic Pixar favourite about a lonely robot left alone on earth to tidy up the mountains of rubbish left by humans. WALL-E is a thoughtful and hopeful story with strong messages about littering, protecting the environment and relying too much on technology portrayed in a way that even the youngest of children can understand. 

Our very special guest speaker Thomas is 8 years old and the founder of The Rubbish Club.

The Rubbish Club’s ethos is simple – don’t litter, and when you see litter pick it up! Since February 2018 Thomas has collected well over 150 bags of rubbish along with old tyres, rusty bikes and much more while encouraging others to do the same. The Rubbish Club community now has over 2000 members from across the world. We are really excited to hear Thomas' story - he really is an inspiration!

Detective Pikachu

Wednesday 3 July at 10.30am
1hr 44 mins • £3/free for teachers • English • PG • Suitable for P3+ 

Hot off the press! Our End of Term treat screening is Pokémon Detective Pikachu - an imaginative, laugh out loud funny mystery adventure in the Pokémon universe!

The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry's former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself.

Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery...

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 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 nicola.whyte@belmontfilmhouse.com

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.
