I remember the City Screen in Museum Gardens very well. Nicely raked auditorium, large screen and well presented. I played for several of their special silent film programmes to audiences of 200; sadly the new City Screen doesn’t seem interested in programming similar silent films excepting those which come with Arts Council support, etc. Too much hassle to hire an instrument, etc., etc. Sad.

This is a fantastic venue.

Does anyone remember it when it was in a hall in the Museum Gardens?!! Great days!

It’s been a successful few years since the cinema opened. The programme is very wide and appealing with mainstream and arthouse filmfare. The cinema has tried regular 70mm screenings [usually once a month] and even replicated Sensurround and screened “Earthquake” with this attraction. Screens are large in all three auditoria with excellent sound. THX in Screen One is superb. I go as often as I can – wished I lived in York!

A really pleasant cinema-going experience.
