Films at Heart is a not-for-profit group run by volunteers. Members and non-members are equally welcome. We are part of Headingley Development Trust.
We screen contemporary independent films from around the world that you may have missed the first time round or that had only limited exposure.
Films at Heart screens on the second Tuesday of every month September to July. Check our programme on HEART’s ‘What’s On’ listing pages.
Films start at 8pm and tickets are available on the door from 7.30pm on screening nights and are priced as follows:
