Dear Rio Patrons,

Due to recent Government advice, we are very sad to say that the cinema will be closing with immediate effect.

The safety of our customers and staff is the main priority in these extraordinary times.We will keep our social media active to stay in touch and to let you know any news and as soon as we know when we might reopen. Please keep in touch, we’ll miss you!

Many of the events we have on sale will be rescheduled to later this summer. Where relevant, customers will be contacted separately in regards to those bookings with further info and options.

The Rio is a non-profit charity and we will find this period very challenging indeed. There are a few ways you can help:

  • Rather than asking for a refund for your booking, please consider the cost of your ticket to be a donation to the Rio or ask for a credit note.
  • Buy a Membership or a gift card (we will of course validate this as soon as we open again)
  • Make a donation. Anything you can give will make a huge difference to us keeping going through this period of closure.

  • The Rio has survived 111 years, including two World Wars, the arrival of TV, video and streaming. With your support, we will survive this too.

    We look forward to welcoming you back on our return.

    Take care of each other,

    The RIO
