Our Story

Nestled in the brand new Elwick Place complex, Ashford Picturehouse opened its doors in December 2018.

Elwick Place sits on the former site of Ashford's historic Cattle Market and the original gates have been restored to form part of the main entrance.

Ashford Picturehouse boasts 6 screens showing an eclectic mix of mainstream, independent and classic cinema - and an impressive restaurant and café-bar. Come on in!
