    We also offer regular events like our Classic Matinee for senior citizens and care home residents, Parent & Baby screenings, Hard-Of-Hearing screenings, School Holiday, Family Matinees, and young film-maker screenings, as well as supporting some of London’s best and most innovative film festivals.

    Plus we will be bringing you monthly offers from business and cultural partners in Hackney, and free member previews of some of the great films coming up at the Rio.

    Supporting the Rio into the future

    As a member you can attend our Annual General Meeting and be part of our future plans, and have voting rights.
