To book a film from the Cinema for All Booking Scheme you need to:

  • Complete a Booking Form. These can be found on any individual film pages.

Conditions of Screening:

  • You may screen the film to your members, guests and the public.

  • You may not screen the film outdoors.
  • You may not copy or in any way make a recording of the DVD or Blu-Ray.
  • You may not screen the film in an alternate format.
  • If the title you have booked is uncertified you are advised to obtain a temporary certificate from the local licensing officer at your local council offices.
  • If you wish to cancel a film booking you must inform Cinema For All immediately in writing by email, or at the very latest within 24 hours after the proposed screening date. You will then receive confirmation from us that the licence has been cancelled. There is no charge for a cancellation providing you inform us within this time-frame. However you are responsible for onward dispatch of any DVD or Blu-Ray that has already been posted to you.
    If you fail to notify us of the cancellation in time you may be liable for a cancellation fee of up to the full cost of the licence.

The MPLC Collection

The titles included in the MPLC collection are offered on a different basis than the main catalogue. The following conditions apply:

  • Screen from you own copy – we are unable to supply copies of the films in the MPLC Collection.
  • Commercial licence – the titles in the MPLC Collection are offered on a commercial basis. The licences is charged at £85 minimum guarantee or 35% of box office takings, which ever is greater. The licence is subject to a £5 discount compared to booking from MPLC directly so the MG is treated as £90 for the purpose of determining if it has been exceeded.
  • The licence is not subject to VAT.
  • You will be sent a returns form with your booking confirmation which must be filled out and returned to Cinema For All within 5 working days of your screening.
  • If you are an organisation that offers membership you will still need to complete the returns form but you will only pay the MG.
  • You may screen the film to your members, guests and the public.
  • You may take money at the door or accept payment in advance of a screening.
  • You may not screen the DVD or Blu-Ray more than once, unless you have booked for multiple screenings.
  • You may not screen the film outdoors.
