Weddings & Celebrations

Yes, we do!  We would love to host your wedding or civil partnership.  As we are an unusual licensed venue (and a full time cinema!) these are some answers to common questions.  Let us know if we haven’t answered something below, or do arrange a visit. We'd be happy to show you around.

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for all your help arranging our wedding yesterday. It was absolutely fantastic and all our guests loved the Lexi. You were all so kind, helpful and patient with us in organising our day and we are so happy to have been able to get married in the best cinema in London!”  Jen and Nick Goffin

“It was just fabulous...a very emotional and joyous festival of family and friendship....lots of generations celebrating our marriage...and a good time had by one and all.  Memorable day indeed!”  Bren and Mary Pointer

Cost and timings:

  • Our hire fee for weddings/civil ceremonies is £275 per hour inclusive of VAT, with a minimum 2 hour hire.
  • Time slots are Saturday afternoon, and Sunday all day (to finish before 4pm), and some weekdays.
  • Other weekend times are available, but if your celebration replaces a public screening, the cost is £850 for 2.5 hours.

In addition to your use of the cinema on your special day, the fee includes:

  • An initial planning meeting with the manager
  • A 1 hour visit to finalise your schedule
  • A 1 hour technical run through to test any moving images/photos you'd like on screen/music play lists
  • A 45 minutes set-up time before your guests arrive 

Based on our experience, this is ample preparation time for you and us!  Extra meetings are charged at £50 per hour inclusive of VAT.

Refreshments and the bar:

  • You are welcome to arrange your own catering.  There is no charge for this, and we can set up buffet tables, however we don't have room to store your refreshments beforehand.
  • Alternatively we can recommend a choice of excellent caterers who we work with regularly.
  • If you're feeling generous you can run a tab for your guests, or we can simply have the bar open as usual.  We can also serve a glass of fizz on arrival - this reduces the initial crush at the bar!  Our house fizz is £28 per bottle.

Dressing the venue:

  • We are happy to take delivery of flowers the day before your wedding.
  • Some couples have gone all out dressing the space, whereas others have let our beautiful auditorium speak for itself and saved flowers and balloons for the reception venue.  It's up to you!

On the big day:

  • We are staffed by volunteers so if you have any special duties such as seating guests, we ask you to nominate an usher.   The box office and bar will be staffed by us at all times.
  • The cinema manager on the day will be your point of contact and also the projectionist.
  • The registrar from Brent will liaise directly with you, when they arrive.
