Solution for 25 September cryptic crossword clue

Picture that woman getting in pub round (5,4)

Solution – Local Hero

Here "picture" is used in its meaning of "movie" – the solution is the name of a movie.

To work out which one you need to look at the second part of the clue:

That woman = her

Pub = local (a UK usage as in "going down to my local for a pint"
Round = o (an abbreviation)

If you put 'that woman" between Local and O you get Local Hero which is the name of a movie – a 1983 movie set in Scotland.  Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits fame did the soundtrack.
