London's largest independent cinema
The Rio Cinema is one of London's best and oldest independent cinemas, which showcases the full spectrum of classic, mainstream, and cult films. The cinema is also an active participant in several specialist film festivals. The building dates from the early twentieth century and still retains its art deco interior and 1920s feel from the "golden age of cinema."

The Rio shows everything from new releases and classics to arthouse, cult, and independent films. This community-oriented theatre also hosts special weekly showings for children (Saturdays) and parents with babies (midday), so that families can attend a film together without worrying about disturbing other viewers. The cinema participates in the annual Turkish, Kurdish, Spanish, and Gay and Lesbian film festivals. The Rio also hosts the London Short Film Festival every January, which showcases the best of British short films over a nine day period. A full listing of short films appearing in the January festival is available on the website.

From mainstream releases to cutting-edge independent creations, the Rio has a full schedule of film selections, showings, and special events.
