Moviescope writes, on December 6th, about the purchase of Picturehouse by Cineworld:

Arts Alliance has been the majority shareholder of Picturehouse – which trades as City Screen Group – since 2002. Cineworld are now in possession of a total of 21 Picturehouse sites across the country, as well as Picturehouse Entertainment, the company’s distribution arm. It adds to Cineworld’s 80 sites around the UK.

Cineworld used its twitter feed this morning to assure Picturehouse patrons: “We love Picturehouse… so (we’re) not planning to get involved with how it’s run.”
