Seats are limited within the auditorium and we may adapt their numbers and configuration depending on social distancing requirements. Unless booked in advance seats cannot be guaranteed so please come early to avoid disappointment.

Films running over 130 minutes may be shown with a short interval.
The Assembly Rooms has three toilets available.

There will be at least 30 tickets available online per screening unless indicated otherwise. We also ask that those who have pre-booked to please come early so that we can seat further audience arrivals as safely as possible.

See our Covid-19 page for other details (under the Further Information menu above).

We encourage use of the online advance-booking system as it minimises queueing and helps with social distancing. Where the Book Tickets button is visible you will be taken to WeGotTickets who securely handle credit card payments for events. A fee of 50p per ticket is added by them to cover the handling of payments. You will be sent an email confirmation and your name then goes on a list at the door. Booking in advance will guarantee a place but bear in mind that we do not have numbered seating. Although this is not intended to replace on-the-door tickets or season tickets, if there is very high demand online ticket allocation may be adjusted and some screenings may sell out in advance through online sales.

Advance-booking for Borderlines Film Festival screenings is also available through the Courtyard Central Box Office. Details at their website and in the festival brochure.

Disabled access to the upper floor is possible using the new lift.


Venue: The Assembly Rooms, Broad Street, Presteigne LD8 2AD

The Assembly Rooms are situated above the Library which is in the centre of Presteigne at the junction of the High Street and Broad Street, the entrance being below the clock tower and approached past the short run of railings to the left of the library window. In colder weather the door may be closed to retain heat in the building so don't be put off from trying the handle!
