Your new Boutique Cinema

Building on the success of the 230-seat Ciné Lumière, the Institut français in London has opened a new 35-seat boutique cinema, to expand its programming, and to provide a perfect location for private screenings. Stylish, cosy and intimate, Ciné Lumière II offers an ideal setting and a unique cinematic experience to enjoy independent cinema and alternative content.

Complementary to the programming in Cinema Lumière, Ciné Lumière II enables the creation of a more specialised and curated series of films and events, in partnership with British organisations. Much more than a cinema, Ciné Lumière II is a forum for debates addressing current issues and championing cultural diversity, an innovative space open to young creators featuring new forms of expression and viewing experiences.

Located on the lower ground floor of the Grade II listed building of the Institut français, Ciné Lumière II provides a high level of comfort, state-of-the-art technology and an inspiring setting, boasting an Art Deco style with a contemporary twist, geometric forms, warm materials, and a bold palette of colours.

Ciné Lumière II and its adjacent lounge area is also available for corporate and private hire, providing a perfect all-in-one backdrop for daytime and evening events.

The creation of this exceptional space would not have been possible without the remarkable support of numerous private and corporate patrons. We wish to express our immense gratitude to all those who have certified to Projet Lumière(s).
