Recently saved from threatened closure, 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.

Rich Mix is a wonderful cultural hub in terms of quality and diversity. The venue itself is also a big asset to its success
So much more than a cinema, Rich Mix is at the heart of the community on the western edge of Bethnal Green. It hosts events such as the recent Philosophy Football 'Days of Hope', a day of activities celebrating the contributions of post-war development to building a new world. They also have an excellent café!
Rich Mix shows great films, has some seriously good live music, and then there's the theatre, the dance, the comedy, spoken word and the exhibitions!
The Rich Mix is a fantastic place, with a diverse, bold and vibrant programme in music, arts, performances and events. It's also great to have free events to enjoy and hang out. I always tell me friends, if I'm not at home, you know where to find me ... at the Rich Mix ... my living room
This venue hosted the Festival of First Nations which reached out to, and gave insights into, cultures throughout the world. It's an inspirational place, an entertainment place, and so much more.
Great place to eat and drink, watch films and watch live performances from artists from all over the world. The Rich Mix also offer great workshops for teens helping them to develop skills and showcase their learning to the public. Every form of entertainment for the whole family under one roof. What more could you want!
Great venue that provides cinema, theatre, concert venue and restaurant all under one roof. I have always enjoyed coming to this venue, and it continues to grow in leaps and bounds in what it does. It's part of film festivals, music festivals, and close to all the on trend places in east London. Love it!!
This Arts Foundation venue is an excellent platform for entrepreneurship, professional development, creative skills/performances and art-inspired activities. The Cinemas and Event areas are spacious and well equipped as well!
This is truly an incredibly unique venue as far as London goes, let alone Shoreditch. It genuinely serves its local community, ensuring that a vibrant array of cultural events are both affordable and relevant to the whole of the local community, not just the more affluent hipster benefactors of the gentrification that inevitably seeps into and commodifies all culturally interesting areas of London.
a fantastic venue - a community hub, a home for emerging artists, and a great place to see excellent work at affordable prices
Truly inspirational venue - culture, politics, music, dancing and an awesome atmosphere - stands out in a sea of gentrified hipsterfied so-cool-you've-never-heard of it nonsense as a place with real soul rather than a [dis]affected attempt at soul. Come along to one of their more politics nights and get your mind blown!
Great place - always something interesting going on in the performance space when I am heading for a film. Bar isn't bad either.
Excellent community venue where you can enjoy first class performance and a delicious Indian lunch or dinner.
