The Lexi Cinema in Kensal Rise is Britain’s first independent boutique digital cinema, built by the innovation and drive of local social entrepreneurs. Not only is this a fantastic venue for a small private screening for up to 80 people, but 100% of The Lexi’s profit goes to charity. The Lynedoch Village in South Africa is where the donations are sent to, and the people there are supplied with education, food, clothing and water every time anything is purchased here – from the room hire fee to a box of popco.
The venue has hosted all manner of events, including product launches, seminars, conferences, birthday parties, and is even licensed to hold civil ceremonies! It is also fully licensed to serve alcohol, and you are free to take your drinks into the auditorium.
From the outside, this appears to be a fairly small, unadventurous building. Once inside, however, you will be immediately struck by just how unusual and fun a venue this is! After your jouey through the quirky, spacious and funky foyer, you will be lead through to the cinema room. This is a space that is sure to impress on any occasion. Bathed in ever-changing moody lighting, the auditorium itself features irresistibly comfortable chairs, a VIP box for 16 guests of honour, state of the art equipment, and overall just has a magical atmosphere.
You also have the advantage of a private bar, called The Josh on the Rocks, serving a wide range of wines, beers and ales. If you’re booking The Lexi for your event and would like something that’s not on their menu, the venue can arrange for your chosen poison to be ordered in especially for your event! If you’d like to have food, highly recommended local caterers can provide anything from a finger buffet to a three course meal.
While you do have the big screen available, there’s also the option to have live music, dancing and theatre performed in this space. The screen itself can be a completely personalised backdrop or even be used for staging scenes, making this a really exciting opportunity to customise the Lexi’s environment to accommodate your imagination.
A fantastic all-round venue which is doing worthy charity work as well. What could be better? Call Function Fixers to book The Lexi Cinema for your next event…
