Live Broadcasts

We have an ongoing programme of live broadcasts from the National Theatre, The Royal Opera House and other venues throughout the season. Please note that live events are received via satellite and susceptible to certain technical issues and atmospheric conditions beyond our control. These are quite rare and we do our best to minimise their impact on the performance.

Tickets for live broadcasts usually go on sale six weeks before broadcast for members and five weeks for non-members. 

Tickets can be purchased by e-mailing mail@tideswellcinema.com
