Welcome to the website of the Forum Cinema Hexham. Tynedale's only cinema - owned by the Hexham Community Partnership - it is operated for the benefit of the local community. Situated in the heart of this historic market town, the cinema, which dates back to 1937, shows the latest films in authentic and comfortable surroundings. Enjoy a delicious cup of freshly made fair trade coffee or a tub of local ice cream in our beautifully refurbished café overlooking the market place before stretching your legs in the spacious auditorium. Scott's also plays host to a changing programme of art exhibitions and live music sessions.
Forum Cinema refund and resale policy
Tickets for alternative content screenings which are returned more than 24 hours before the show will be put back on sale as soon as possible; however, money will only be refunded in the event that the tickets are resold AND the show is sold out. Tickets for films will be refunded if they are returned more than 24 hours before the show.
Scott's, our licensed cafe, is now open as follows: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 4.30pm
Tuesday 9.30am during term-time
Saturday 11am and Sunday from 2pm
(Cafe open each day from 1.00 throughout the school summer holidays)
Come and relax after work or meet before a film - drinks can be taken into the auditorium. Enjoy our early evening film, usually at 5pm but check our programme.
We have a Stannah type stair lift up the main stairs to the foyer, and a wheelchair lift from the foyer to the auditorium. We have two dedicated wheelchair spaces. Please let us know when you book that you will need to use these lifts and wheelchair spaces, and allow plenty of time to get to your seat.
Headsets are available for the hard of hearing and to provide audio-description when available.

* Dolby surround sound
* Car parking nearby
* School packages (special films by arrangement)
* Digital projector with 3D we have chosen the Xpand 3D system as we believe this gives the best 3D experience without compromising the quality of the 2D films. Please note that the majority of 3D glasses from other cinemas/home systems ARE NOT compatible with our system. Glasses are hired at £2 a pair to cover handling and cleaning costs. Please handle the glasses with care– they are very expensive to replace as all the active technology is within the glasses themselves. You will not be able to watch a 3D film without the 3D glasses.
