The Station Cinema opened in 2007 as part of the redevelopment of the former Victorian railway station in the heart of Richmond. The railway station first opened in 1846 and the last trains left the platform in 1969. In 2006 under the Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust, The Station was restored and its interior reimagined and re-opened to the public in 2007 as a hub for 'Food, Film and Art'. You can find out more about The Station and the Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust here.
The cinema came under the proud ownership of the Richmondshire Preservation Trust, a registered charity, in February 2022 and all profits go back into the upkeep and continued restoration of this fantastic building.
The Station Cinema since its inception has strived to welcome a wide range of independent and international cinema alongside Hollywood releases. Drawing audiences and members from across the North and Yorkshire; we've even had a number of international visitors! From charitable screenings, film festivals, community work, creative workshops and in person Director Q&A’s, The Station Cinema has established itself firmly on the map as the region’s leading charitably run independent cinema.
