Incredible Travelling Cinema rolls into Ealing!

Picturehouse Cinemas are putting the show on the road and bringing their Travelling Cinema to Ealing for their first ever film screenings in London. The Travelling Cinema is England’s only ‘Cinemobile’ – an articulated lorry that turns into a 100 seater, fully air conditioned cinema.

Residing on Ealing Green from 8 September – 27 September 2015, Picturehouse and Make it Ealing will be delivering a unique cinema experience showing a range of films including family favourites, recent blockbusters, art house titles and of course some Ealing classics.

There’s a plethora of great films for you to choose from including Noah Baumbach’s wry comedy of manners Mistress America, British classic Kind Hearts And Coronets or the dude-abiding The Big Lebowski.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased through our dedicated ticketing system. Ealing Green is a short walk from Ealing Broadway tube station. Site map.
