The May Fair's luxury screening room is the envy of many private cinemas in London. Audiences of up to 201 guests sit in supreme comfort on Italian-leather trimmed seats complete with armrests and fold out tables, with ample leg room to stretch out. In front of the 8m screen a stage, available with optional speaker's podium, provides an energising and inspiring platform for multimedia presentations and filming location in London.

Preparation space

Guests can be entertained pre and post-presentation in The May Fair Bar, from the adjacent Quince Salon, Crystal Room and Danziger Suite or in one of our many private suites. A number of meeting rooms and suites as well as the Screening Room's own Green Room can also be used as preparation spaces where speakers can follow events from the auditorium via live video and audio feeds.

High-end Audio Visual Facilities

The Theatre has a permanently installed Audience Response System from the award winning company IML. The system gives each seat an individual handset for the sending and receiving of questions, for voting and a personal microphone for audio questions.

A sophisticated touch-screen panel offering users control of all aspects of the audio-visual presentation is set into the lectern. From here the speaker can move between media, control the lights and sound functions and set the conditions for a presentation. Alternatively, our fully trained AV Technicians can control the presentation from the self-contained, purpose-built control room located at the rear of the theatre. In either case, a trained technician is on hand throughout the day.

To further reinforce the professional sound system there are comprehensive options for microphones both on stage and around the room, including both wired and wireless systems.
