Sheffield Showroom Cinema Reopening

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Sheffield Showroom Cinema Reopening at Showroom Workstation, City Centre 18 September — 18 October 2020 Tickets from £7 — Book now

Sheffield’s Showroom cinema reopens its doors for the first time in six months, with social distancing procedures and a whole new film programme ready to tempt movie buffs. As with other venues, Showroom will reopen with reduced capacity, distanced seating, one way systems and sanitiser systems to help filmgoers feel comfortable returning to the big screen.

The cinema is known for its eclectic programme of independent and classic films, and there’s been no compromise on the relaunch lineup. Starting on Friday 18 September, film fans can look forward to the likes of Ladj Ly’s intense, socially-minded French thriller Les Misérables, Sarah Gavron’s acclaimed East London coming-of-age film Rocks, and Václav Marhoul’s The Painted Bird, a harrowing tale of a young Jewish boy’s journey across Eastern Europe during World War II.

As you’d expect from Showroom, there are also special seasons and special partnerships. A dedicated showcase for the early thrillers of Parasite director Bong Joon-ho is definitely a highlight, while, excitingly for October, Showroom has secured a partnership with the BFI London Film Festival that will see the event extend to Sheffield with screenings of eleven titles — look out for previews of Steve McQueen’s Mangrove and Pixar’s latest animated feature, Soul.
