Broadbent Cinema

Bringing the big screen to Wickenby

You’re guaranteed a warm welcome at the Broadbent Cinema, with our lovely theatre transformed to cinema configuration, with 4m screen and 5.1 surround sound system. We are bringing the cinema experience to rural Lincolnshire.

We are showing the entire NTLive programme from The National Theatre, together with selected ‘art-house’ and special interest movies.

Our 4m screen

We will even be showing the odd blockbuster, but we have no intention of competing with the big boys, no way, we’re proud to be small and local.

Our licensed bar “The Bent Broad” serves a variety of alcoholic and soft drinks together with snacks and of course, popcorn, at a very reasonable price, and there’s ice cream to complete the experience.

Keep watching our upcoming shows list – easy to spot cinema mode, they’re in yellow.
