The Whitgift Film Theatre opened its doors for the first time in September 1972. Originally a British Film Institute regional film theatre, it was operated by Whitgift School with the Headmaster, Bill Baines, as manager, and was funded and programmed by the BFI.

35 years on it is still offering a good cross-section of films from blockbusters to art-house, and now is operated solely by Whitgift School & partially funded by Screen Yorkshire and The UK Film Council.

The Theatre is now equipped with a DTS Digital sound system and Dolby Surround Sound, as well as a digital projector which enables the theatre to show more than just conventional films.
