Do you remember the last meeting or conference your company held?  Was someone standing at the front of the room telling you about some new initiative?



Nine times out of ten, if you ask delegates to tell you what they remember about the meeting, they will only remember scanty detail. There may be several reasons why it wasn’t memorable, but we believe that these are the key reasons:

1. People didn’t want to be there – it’s hard for your meeting to be memorable when people are trying to find ways to get out of attending.

2. People were distracted – modern technology means that people can check e-mails, texts etc anywhere, any time. Your company’s message was competing for attention with people’s devices. At the cinema or theatre, people are conditioned to shut down their devices, tune out distractions, and focus on the story to come.

3. People weren’t excited about the content – your content may have been spectacular, but when everybody’s squinting to read the text and hear the video, your message has a hard time standing out.

By showcasing your content on a huge state of the art screen, in high definition or 3D, you simply cannot fail to get your message across.



There’s no better way to impress than by taking a completely fresh approach to corporate entertainment and events and hiring your own private screen. Whether it’s for your next corporate presentation or meeting, or just to treat your staff to their own viewing of a film, a private cinema rental will definitely add the “wow” factor! Any presentation will be better with popcorn and you can encourage even better attendance and excitement by screening a newly-released blockbuster film or a Hollywood classic after your meeting.



There are cinemas perfectly placed throughout the UK, with superb facilities including comfortable theatre style seats, in auditoria of various sizes, for up to 550 delegates, depending on the location. Each cinema has a technical team on hand to ensure your presentation creates maximum impact.  If you don’t have to accommodate these big numbers, most cinemas have smaller, more intimate screening rooms.

To round your event off, catering options are available on request and can be anything from fun, film fodder to more elaborate hot or cold buffets.



Vue Cinemas for example have 83 unique locations across the UK, with stadium style seating, VIP seating and great reception spaces. They can cater for all sizes of groups and requirements and what is more, all Vue cinemas have ample parking facilities and are easily accessible by public transport.  Your delegates will be able to get to them easily and the lure of the big screen is guaranteed to be a big pull.
