The Rio is aiming to raise £150,000. With this we want to create a second screen with around 30 seats in our basement, to give our audiences more choice, enable more film festivals and community events and generate revenue from private hires. The outside of the building currently looks shabby and tired. We want to undertake some much needed renovation work, to restore this important architectural landmark in Hackney.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Rio is one of the oldest cinemas in London and a Hackney institution. By making these improvements we can protect the building for future generations, offer a more diverse programme and make the business more sustainable. We will transform our underused basement into a space that the whole community can enjoy. This will allow the Rio to invest more into community projects, better maintain the building and pay its staff better.
Steps to get it done:
The Rio is one of the only truly independent, community focused cinemas in London. By donating towards RIOgeneration you will be helping to protect this important community asset that has been entertaining audiences, young and old for over 100 years. For every donation of £25 or more we will give you two free tickets and popcorn for a future screening.
