In the run-up to The Academy Awards this Sunday, we take a look at some of our favourite London screening rooms for presentations, meetings and immersive film-focused events

1. Curzon Aldgate

Curzon Aldgate - venue hire

USP Stylish surroundings

Interiors are suitably cool at this east London cinema, which offers a range of independent world cinema films that can be booked for private group screenings. Each room comes with reclining seats, and three of the four have their own bars. Cheers to that!

2. Cineworld Wandsworth

On top of the 14 screens available for presentations and live screenings, Cineworld Wandsworth has been recently refurbished to include London's first 4DX cinema (think 3D movies with special effects like bubbles and fog) and a new Superscreen. If you want to round things off with a spot of catering, then a hot or cold buffet can be served in the modern foyer.

3. BAFTA 195 Piccadilly 

BAFTA 195 Piccadilly - venue hire

USP Immersive screenings

The home of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts is super adept at curating immersive events. Choose from Eat Screen where food and film are combined so that guests can feast on dishes featured on screen, or Inside Screen where someone from behind the scenes will talk about the creative process before the movie starts.

4. The May Fair Hotel

May Fair Theatre - venue hire

USP High-end facilities 

Inside this luxe venue, you’ll find The May Fair Theatre with 201 seats. It’s kitted out with Italian-leather trimmed seats with fold-out tables, cinema-quality equipment such as a THX sound system and a green room with live video and audio feeds.

5. 30 Euston Square

30 Euston Square - venue hire

USP Screenings can be combined with private exhibition space

The auditorium here has everything you might need for a presentation or full-on screening: surround-sound speakers, 3D projector, state-of-the-art screen and 300 tiered seats. The thing that seals the deal though is that it also comes with a 360sq m exhibition space where you can put up your own branding for registration and receptions.
