Run by volunteers, Portrush Film Theatre is a non-profit, community based cinema group. Our aim is to promote greater appreciation of, and enthusiasm for, film culture in the local community by showing a diverse range of Irish , British and World cinema in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Using The Playhouse with its unique Art Deco design and long history of cinema, we boast a well stocked bar and traditional sweet sales at every show. Portrush Film Theatre is a welcome alternative to the multiplex way of enjoying films and puts the old fashioned excitement back into "Movie Night"!
So far this year, we've shown family classics (Lady and the Tramp) and recent British films (Sorry We Missed You), hosted events in partnership with LGBTQ+ allies (Love, Simon), dementia-friendly screenings (Still Alice) and an International Women's Day event (Woman at War & Feminista Film Shorts). We regularly take part in Film Hub events such as Cinema Day (Cup Cake) or Collective tours (The Dig).
