The Basement

About

The Basement is a 100 capacity events venue situated below City Screen Picturehouse cinema, right in the heart of York city centre. The venue has hosted an eclectic mix of events including comedy, live music, poetry, and drama since March 2000. Its low ceiling and side on layout make the venue incredibly intimate, with the audience rarely more than a couple of metres away from the acts. Although not exactly what you expect from a venue, The Basement has a character all of it’s own.
