Centre for the performing and visual arts in Anglesey, North Wales
The Ucheldre Centre is one of the two venues on the Isle of Anglesey showing films.
The Empire in Holyhead is a dedicated Cinema, showing the latest film releases several times a day. https://www.holyheadcinema.co.uk/cinema-holyhead
Ucheldre as an arts centre screens live broadcasts from The Royal Opera House , the Met, and the National Theatre. There are also special film events; concerts and shows from the West End; and tours from the major stadiums; O2 Arena, The Royal Albert Hall, and other venues all over the world.
As a Cinema Ucheldre also screens films usually later than on general release a few times a week. A good opportunity to see a film you missed, or that you want to see again. Ucheldre also shows short film and foreign language film.
An annual short film festival is held at Ucheldre in October.
It is also possible to hire the Centre for private showings.

“Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as the father of Impressionism.”
It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed, and throughout it all he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro’s life and work.
Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43 had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favourite artistic movement.
The Ashmolean Museum has a long tradition of excellence. As the UK’s first ever public museum (it opened its doors in May 1683) it houses a wonderfully rich collection, including the remarkable Pissarro archive. With exclusive access to most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter, and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores and highlights the enthralling and hugely important biography and output of an incredible artist.
Coming Soon to the Ucheldre Centre, Mary Parry’s players present a film of the Golden Jubilee filmed 10 years ago to commemorate the platinum jubilee.
Proceeds to go to St David’s hospice.
