The BFI IMAX is a breath of fresh air - a high-tech, iconic venue supported by a dedicated corporate events team and situated at the heart of London with access to excellent local, national and European transportation networks.

Situated between Westminster and the City, the award-winning building is an island of silence; insulated from traffic, tubes and trains. The unique facility offers all the necessary technology to host a private meeting, project a new idea or launch a product to either internal or external audiences.

The auditorium boasts 15 rows of steeply raked comfortable seats, enabling all participants a full, unobstructed view of the speaker and screen. Our extraordinary 20m by 26m silver screen (the largest in the UK) can be used as a virtual stage with dramatic lighting effects. This can stand alone or work to complement a temporary stage that can be erected.

We have 500 seats, and our events tend to cater for audiences between 100 and 450. We can look after 320 guests in the first floor foyer, and a further 180 on the ground floor for refreshments, networking and standing receptions.

Aside from IMAX® film, digital and regular 35mm and 70mm film projectors, we also have the capacity for satellite transmissions, DVD, video projection, slide and PowerPoint presentations. The space provides great flexibility supported by accredited suppliers.

There is a full range of facilities integrated into the design of the BFI IMAX and it has accessibility built in: lifts; an induction loop; wheelchair spaces; fully accessible toilets; facilities for recharging power chairs and guide dogs are welcome.

Here at the BFI IMAX we are all wholly dedicated to the success of your event, from the excellence of the cuisine to the efficient and professional service of the management team.
