Voted one of the most comfortable cinemas in London, Cinema 1 boasts state-of-the-art projection supported by our in-house technical team.
It is the perfect venue for presentations and corporate meetings, and the hire cost includes a projection screen, PA system, three cabled microphones and a dedicated technician. On-site technical support and capacity to stage video-conferencing and satellite links, offers organisers the facilities and expertise to stage even the most demanding event.
The space benefits from large projection and production booths at the back of the auditorium, fully-integrated stage lighting and two sound rigs, which can be adapted to individual client needs. The auditorium lighting is programmable and enables us to colourwash the walls and ceiling in corporate colours.
Cinema 1 is also the ideal venue for private film screenings, and can be combined with dinner or drinks in the Garden Room and Conservatory.
