Update - November 2023

Although we were aiming to re-open in January, and we’ve been working very hard to achieve this, there is still a lot to do before we can announce an opening date.

We have launched a JustGiving page so that supporters can contribute to the re-launch fund. 

North Staffordshire Regional Film Theatre -
Relaunch of the Film Theatre in Stoke

The Film Theatre has found a new home at The Wade Centre in Hartshill. 

Before we can reopen, we need to equip the venue to be able to provide the most enjoyable independent cinema experience, bringing back the magic of the big screen and the shared joy of cinema.

We are a charity, run by volunteers, and we're looking to the community for support. 

Join us as we work to recreate The Film Theatre for the people of Stoke-on-Trent.

Our Story

In March 2020, the Independent Film Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent shut down due to Covid. Now, we've found a new home at The Wade Centre in Hartshill, but there's work to be done.

To transform our new venue into a haven for film-goers, we need your support. The prolonged closure has left our existing projection equipment in need of tender care and new fittings including a screen, curtains and acoustic walls are needed. The equipment needs to be installed and cabling run to suit the new location – every detail requires funding.

Your contribution isn't just about bringing independent cinema back to Stoke-on-Trent; it's about reviving a cultural hub that means so much to so many. Our Film Theatre isn't just a place to watch films; it's a gathering space for the community, a source of shared experiences.

Join us in this effort to get The Film Theatre up and running again.
