Venue Hire And Events At Hackney Picturehouse

Hosting an event in East London? Hackney's premier cinema offers a wide-range of spaces including six screens.

We are excited to offer a variety of spaces suitable for hosting a range of events. Our six auditoria, with capacity for up to 294 guests, are perfect for theatre-style meetings, presentations, AGMs and conferences, offering high-quality digital screens, staging, AV equipment and professional projection – all included in the cost of the room hire. And with our tiered seating, which allows the best possible view for all attendees, you will know that whatever your message, none of your guests will miss out.

Add to this our breakout spaces for small numbers, the gallery for cocktails and canapés, the Community Room for small gatherings, and you have a selection of spaces that provide flexibility of function, style and cost.

Don’t forget, you can also privately hire any of these areas for celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries, hen or stag parties, and of course children’s parties.

So if you’re looking to make an impact, whether it’s a work-related event or a private gathering, Hackney Picturehouse is the venue of choice.
