Celebrate Roald Dahl Day with our Dahlicious Dress Up Screening of The BFG! Come along for a Barmytastic Filmhouse Gettogethering. Dress up as your favouriticious Dahl character, watch the gloriumptious BFG and return to class with an awescrumptious follow up lesson on how to use camera tricks to film a BFG style scene back in the schooldiddly. With a Golden Ticket prize for the most splendiferous costume, this is a phiz-wizzing school trip not to be missed.
We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Filmhouse when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.
This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 0131 228 2688.
We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which includes switching off mobile phones.
Come and learn how cinema works, with a tour of our projection box and a screening of short animations from the London International Animation Festival. Tours cost £75 for a class of up to 33 pupils, and are suitable for P4-S2.
Please note that, although we strive to make Filmhouse as accessible as possible, this tour is of a non-public area of the building which is up two flights of stairs, with no lift.
