Hire our entire cinema for you and your friends and have a night out with a difference.

The Customs House presents a film choice made by you! Starring you, your mates and maybe your mum or anyone else you choose!

Sound too good to be true? At The Customs House that's exactly what we are offering. You choose the film, any film you want, and we'll provide the popcorn.

We'll search for any film you like, whether you want action fuelled fun, a comedy classic, musical mayhem or maybe the exclusive world premier of your wedding video in Dolby Surround Sound. Perhaps you'd like to organise your very own Star Trek convention or how about singing along to The Sound of Music as loud as your lungs will permit. When you hire our cinema, anything goes.

Come dressed to impress - whether it's your Sunday best of fancy dress. Most importantly make the most of this unique experience.You're in the director's chair so let us know what you want to do. A pre-screening drinks reception? An interval to catch up with your guests? Or how about a bite to eat after your film? No problem.

It's great value for all you film buffs and, unlike some other venues, our cinema is fully licensed which means you don't have to stick to soft drinks. You can watch your film with a glass of wine or a refreshing beer to get your party started.

From only £3 per person
The hire of the cinema is only £275 Monday to Wednesday or £350 Thursday to Sunday and includes a projectionist, usher, film of your choice and exclusive use of the cinema for up to 4 hours. Our food kiosk will be open serving hot dogs, nachos, pop corn, drinks and sweets.
