No, The Picture House is open to the general public. Because we’re a nonprofit, we have a membership program, but we welcome everyone who wants to come see a movie or take part in a class.
What is The Picture House Film Club?
Our signature program, TPH Film Club, has three seasons – Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each season consists of six films, often advance screenings of major films just prior to national release. Film Club is held on Wednesday evenings at our Pelham theater. Subscription to Film Club is an exclusive benefit for TPH members. If you’re interested in joining you can learn more here [link].

As a complement to the magic on the big screen, we often have engaging live performances, concerts, panels, and other arts-oriented events. We frequently have advance screenings with special industry guests to give you an inside look at moviemaking.

Yes. In addition to education programs for adults, The Picture House also offers Senior Cinema, which welcomes people 65 and up to see the film playing in the Main Hall at TPH Pelham for free on Tuesday afternoons.
