We're aiming to raise at least £50 for every hour of our marathon, which is £1,200 for the whole 24 hrs. We'd of course love to beat our target, so your generous support will keep both our eyes and the Picture House open!
We've now finalised the full 24hr Marathon schedule, which you can view & download here.
Scalarama Leeds are dedicated to the cinema community and the film culture of Leeds. As part of our 2020 Film Festival, our aim is to support the local venues that we love and who have supported us in the past.
The Hyde Park Picture House is a beautiful 105 year old cinema, which has been closed since March due to the Covid outbreak. The virus has also delayed the start of their refurbishment project and they urgently need financial support to continue to keep the cinema viable and help them return to bringing off-site film screenings until work can recommence.
The Hyde Park Picture House has been attracting generations of Leeds residents since 1914. Hailed as “the cosiest cinema in Leeds”, the independent cinema showcases films from all over the world in the centre of Hyde Park.
As the only remaining gas lit cinema in the UK, the Hyde Park Picture House is a reminder of the lost cinemas in Leeds. They are of huge value to Leeds and at the heart of it's cinema culture - it's essential that we help keep it open and alive for everyone and for the future.
Your kind donation will help:
- Protect the Picture House building
- Support it's offsite programme including accessible & family screenings
- Assist it's community-focused projects like it's Hiding in Plain Sight project
Can we make it through a whole 24 hours of film watching?
With your help, we can!
Keep watching & keep film history alive.
