Equipment Hire

***Due to temporarily decreased staff levels, Cinema For All is pausing our equipment hire scheme until  May 2022. We will be unable to take any bookings for equipment during this period, however we will honour any existing bookings in our calendar confirmed prior to today.

For alternative hire during this time, we recommend finding a local AV company or getting in touch with another local community cinema to see if you can borrow their kit. You can find other community cinemas near you using

We do apologise if this is disappointing, however we aim to be back to full staff levels very soon.***


Cinema For All operates a short-term low-cost equipment hire scheme to help new groups hold a test screening and get on their feet.

Equipment hire is £25 per screening for members and £50 per screening for non-members. Hire for non-volunteer led groups or commercial groups is £90.

If you are a new Cinema For All member you can hire our equipment for a test screening for free! Just get in touch with us and we can send you an application form.
