About the Pub

Originally Northampton’s first purpose-built cinema in 1912, the Picturedrome remains one of the Midland’s most unique venues. Situated at the end of a Victorian tree-lined avenue lane, it is at the heart of the community opposite the old racecourse. Affectionately known as ‘The Drome’; it features a variety of local, national and international bands and artists along with live comedy, films and burlesque. To the front is the laid-back café feel Front Bar, with natural daylight filtering through the concertina windows. To the rear behind the double doors is the Venue Bar, a large auditorium featuring a stage at the far end adorned with heavy velvet curtains, a giant HD screen and an impressive bar running the full length of the room. To the sides is a mezzanine for a comfortable seating overlooking the entire room. Alternatively, a short flight of stairs leads to a secluded roof terrace. There is a Sunday Matinee Movie at The Picturedrome with a pairing of a classic movie and a roast dinner.
