Shoreditch's independent cultural centre houses three cinema screens alongside exhibition and performance spaces and a cafe/bar. Run as a charity, it's a vibrant arts hub and any given week could see it hosting an assortment of music gigs, theatre shows, art exhibitions, themed festivals and all manner of workshops. 

Families are well catered for with weekly parent and baby cinema screenings of the latest films, a family cinema club with affordable tickets, monthly StoryCraft workshops and the fortnightly Wiggly Jigglers active play session for under-twos.

Local residents with a Tower Hamlets Libraries or Ideas Store card get discounted entry to cinema screenings.

In spring 2015, the centre came up against a funding issue and attendant on its ability to remain open; read our Rich Mix blog post here.

    This follow-up to the 2010 animated hit flies into cinemas on the back of an enormous amount of goodwill toward its teen hero, Hiccup, and his tamed winged beast, Toothless. It’s five years later now, and the story sees a more stubbly Hiccup (voic...

    Has there ever been a less appealing action hero than Ethan Hunt? Five ‘Mission: Impossible’ movies in and he still feels like a blank slate, a robot with Tom Cruise’s empty grin and a vocabulary ripped straight from the Bumper Book of Pithy Quips...
