Make Your Conferences Cinematic

We've all been there - going to the same conference every year at the same boring venue. Well, what if we told you it doesn't have to be that way? Cinemas are traditionally the landscape for incredible feats of creativity, passion and fantastic videography, but now they can also be the setting for your next conference. Here at Hire Space, we don't like to discriminate - where there's a venue, there's a way to turn it into an amazing event!

So, to give all of you lovely readers some big-screen inspiration for your next conference, read on for some of our favourite cinemas to hire in London and beyond.

Shake up your conferences at Rich Mix

If you fancy something a bit out of the ordinary, Shoreditch's big-screen offering takes the form of a vibrant creative hub in the heart of the East End. Three fully-equipped cinema screens studded across versatile blank canvas spaces offer ample room for up to 375 delegates.

This avant-garde venue is also a registered charity which donates profits to the community to support art and education, so not only will it add a creative edge to your conference, it will do some good for local Londoners too.

Banish conference boredom at the Lexi Cinema

This intimate, independent cinema in the heart of Northwest London has some quirky features that make it a really attractive conference venue. The Auditorium features a stunning chandelier designed by none other than Eden Project sculptor Bruce Munro - this light display adds a twinkly feel to the space which also features high quality AV and digital projection.

Our favourite part of the Lexi? The back-of-house bar, of course! Mid-conference vino, anyone?
