PRIVATE HIRE

Whether it’s a film from the golden age of Hollywood, an Indy classic or a modern family film, with 1000’s of titles to choose from there is bound to be something to please all tastes.
Why not be the host with the most; by holding a private screening here at Jam Jar Cinema. Treat your guests to a luxury 45 seat screening room, like no other. We like to think of it as cinema as it should be. You’ll be able to use the public lounge bar to welcome your guests, before the screening.
We have hosted all sorts of events: community fundraisers, big birthday bashes, anniversaries, school trips, wedding receptions and gatherings of friends and family. There truly is no better way to celebrate than getting the gang together to watch the biggest and brightest stars in our friendly, relaxing and fun venue.

With our ongoing expansion we now have more slots than ever available to book and we are able to book private screenings to start at lots of different times. We advise asking your guests to arrive 30 minutes before the screening as the screening will start promptly at:

Monday to Friday 13:00 / 17:00 / 20:00

Saturday 11:00am / 14:00pm / 17:00 / 20.00

Sunday 12:00 / 3:00pm / 19.00

School groups by private arrangement.

There are 45 seats and the charge is per screening so we encourage you to pack it out. The charge for a private screening is £200 and we are able to offer a 20% reduction to charitable organisations and community fundraisers. We can do new release titles (subject to availability) as well as Blu-Ray/DVD screenings. We can't confirm the film choice when you book so we also need a back up choice. It's always a good idea to have a shortlist of films just in case something isn't available.

For all bookings until 31st January, we are unable to offer private use of the foyer space. As a result no outside food, drinks, sweets or popcorn are able to be brought into the venue. We also ask that you take belongings into the screen you when your screening starts. We are able to offer arrival drinks, sweets, popcorn and snackpacks. We also try to time screenings so you have 30 minutes before screenings to welcome your guests and do 'Happy Birthday' etc.

We ask for the balance at the time of booking and 50% of this is refundable if you decide to cancel your booking with 28 days notice. We're pretty 'Old School' and run a paper diary so we do need you to pop in and fill out some paperwork.

Usually we can only can book up to 16 weeks in advance. We are unable to check availability via email, only in house as we run a paper diary. Please pop in and see us and we can discuss your requirements;

We are currently booking parties through to 31st January and we advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment. 

Other Venue Uses

We do allow the venue to be used as a filming location, for live performances and exhibitions. This is subject to availability, please get in touch.
