Your Visit

Currently seating up to 34 people, our auditorium is definitely cosy, but we haven’t cut any corners. Comfy seats, Dolby surround sound and 2K picture quality means that although we may be small – we are just as good as any multiplex… if not better (well, we think so anyway).


Cinema comes in many forms, and so does our audience! With that in mind we work incredibly hard to cater to all tastes and trends. From big budget blockbusters, event screenings including ballet, opera and plays.  We also show classic films and the best that World Cinema has to offer, and we are thrilled to share it with you.

Housed in the ground floor of an 18th century Malthouse, choose from our classic seats; salvaged and lovingly restored from The Savoy Cinema in Nottingham, a Luxury seat or a comfy Sofa for Two.

Take a drink into the auditorium and enjoy the film. Doors to the cinema open 30 minutes before the first performance of the day.


Choose either a glass of Wine, a pint of draught beer, a cocktail, a box of popcorn, or a cup of coffee and a piece of cake and relax, let the lights dim and the curtains open to enjoy the unique immersive film experience that only the big screen can give.

Feel free to pop-in and use the bar whenever we are open – even if you don’t have a cinema ticket.


Nestled in the rolling hills of the Derbyshire Dales, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, the market town of Wirksworth is rightly described as a hidden gem. Its architectural heritage is as varied as its vibrant arts scene, and its community has forged of an independent spirit based on hard labour and ale – mainly down to its mining pedigree, but the locals do their best to respect tradition.

Wander through its maze of alleyways and near-hidden passages, or relax on the town’s own StarDisc, set in the community’s Stoney Wood, before heading back into town for a pint at The Feather Star or some street food at Umami.

There’s also the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway with its vintage steam trains and Skopa, our very own zero-waste shop, as well as many other unique independent retailers.

Why not stay for the weekend? There’s so much to do and see!

Whatever you’re into, you’ll find it in Wirksworth.


The delights of the big screen should be accessible to all.

That’s why The Northern Light Cinema has invested in providing wheelchair access into the building, with a platform step lift to access the raised ground-floor level and an inclined platform stair lift to access the main auditorium. As well we screen regular, monthly films with closed captions especially for people with hearing loss.

If you require assisted access, or any other additional support, please contact us prior to booking your tickets so our small team can be well prepared for your arrival.
