Here's some helpful information on how these screenings work.
We have a wide range of films available for to book for a private screening. Unfortunately, we are unable to screen films that are currently playing in the cinema at a reduced rate. A minimum period of six weeks will be required to book a film.
You can also screen your own work. For this, we require the film on DVD at least 10 working days before your event to run a test through our systems.
We are able to arrange private screenings for educational establishments and community groups starting between 9.30am and 10.30am, Mon-Fri (subject to availability). Unfortunately, we are able to organise private screenings at weekends (when we have our public daily sessions).
For commercial hire, the cinema can be booked when required, however a notice period of 12 weeks is required. Full prepayment for the event will be taken at the time of booking. If you would like to arrange a group booking for a film that is currently on release in the public programme, please contact the box office.

As our private screenings may take place early morning before we open to the public, the cinemas’ kiosk will not be open. If you would like to purchase drinks and snacks, this will need to be ordered in advance and we will then simply add the cost to your invoice when you are finalising your booking. No outside food or drink is permitted to be consumed within the cinema. Need more than a cinema treat/snack, why not enquire about our variety of food and beverage packages supplied by the Malvina House Hotel to add to your screening, from canapes and buffets to indulgent sit down three course menus.
