Important Notice

In light of the latest advice from the Government around Coronavirus (COVID-19) our Filmhouse Sunderland partners, Empire Cinemas have taken the decision to temporarily close its UK sites, including Empire Sunderland.

This means that our forthcoming screenings on 19 March (PARASITE), 26 March (LITTLE JOE) and 2 April (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE) are postponed.

Filmhouse Sunderland is not going anywhere, but it does mean that sadly we will be taking a short break until we and the film industry are able to celebrate cinema with you once again.
