Filming at The Rio

Filming at The Rio

The Rio is one of London’s most unique and iconic filming locations. With its bold 1930s exterior and unspoilt picture palace interior, our auditorium can pass for a number of periods and we are regularly used as a location for commercials, music videos, television and feature films.

You can also shoot in other locations around the building including our projection room, which houses our 35mm projector; our foyer complete with bar and popcorn machine and outside our Grade II-listed building.

Mondays and Fridays are our most flexible days but we can accommodate weekends by arrangement. We are happy to accommodate your shooting schedules whenever possible.

Recent filming at the Rio includes, ‘It Takes Two, Strictly Come Dancing’, the Fear for BBC3, Whitechapel for ITV Love Nina for BBC One and the feature film One Day.
