CLASSIC movies and theatre performances are on offer at Keighley Picture House as it enters "exciting new territory".

The North Street cinema is showing a National Theatre production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible today (March 8) at 7.30pm, followed by Life of Pi on March 30, David Tennant in Good on April 20 and Best of Enemies on May 18.

A season of classic 1980s films includes Highlander, on Sunday (March 12) at 8pm; The Evil Dead (1981) on April 9 and Disney’s original Little Mermaid on May 14.

And in addition to its usual new releases, the Picture House is screening a series of well-known musicals monthly on Mondays, at 1.30pm. Singin’ In The Rain on March 27 will be followed by Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, The King and I, My Fair Lady, Calamity Jane and Oklahoma!

"This is exciting new territory for us," says Picture House owner Charles Morris.

"The Picture House is 110 years old this year, so it is appropriate to start dipping into the cultural heritage we have.

"The 80s classics and the musicals are the brainchild of our energetic staff, especially Jamie Sutcliffe and Jack Bottomley – they certainly know their stuff on films, both old and new. Everybody says there's nothing like seeing a film on the big screen, so here is an opportunity to have that experience with some of the classics. We welcome suggestions for any other films people would like to see. We do of course have the Keighley Film Club as well, which shows the best of world cinema on the third Sunday of the month."
