Film is here!

 We’re excited to launch our brand new film programme at The Core Theatre Solihull this Spring.

Our technicians have been working hard behind-the-scenes during lockdown installing cinema equipment, ready for us to showcase films in the main theatre from 17 May (government guidelines permitting).


We can’t wait to welcome audiences for film screenings, Encore Café Bar will be open pre-screening and our friendly front of house team are looking forward to welcoming both regular and new customers back to The Core.


What’s showing?

This is an introductory season of film. We’re working on future programming so always appreciate feedback.  We won’t be showing brand-new cinema releases or competing with Cineworld – we hope our films at The Core will provide a welcome addition to the existing film offering in Solihull.


We aim to show interesting and diverse films and live screenings, foreign-language films, and independent cinema; however we are also not an arthouse cinema. We’re hoping to provide something for everyone!  View our Spring film mini-season by clicking this link.  If you have a fave film idea to share with us, drop us an email and tell us why you love it.


What’s changed?

Things won’t be quite the same as pre-lockdown, but we’ll be doing our best. We ask that our customers follow any safety measures in place, and be kind and patient to us and each other as we all get used to new ways of working. Things might take a little longer than usual, as counters, seats and equipment are cleaned more and social distancing is in place for staff and audiences for just a few weeks more.  Our bar, toilets and ‘changing places’ are open and staff are just as friendly!


Also, if you see something you think isn’t quite right or you have a suggestion on what we could do better, please talk to a member of staff (or drop us an email) and give us the chance to sort it out.


See you soon!

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Core Theatre Solihull. It’s been a difficult year, but we’re on the road to reopening, and hope you’ll enjoy our first film programme.
