MediCinema is a registered charity that brings the power of cinema to hospitals across the UK. It was founded in 1999 at St Thomas’s Hospital and builds, installs and manages state-of-the-art cinemas, screening the latest releases in hospitals and health facilities.
There are now seven purpose-built MediCinemas, each equipped with state-of-the-art RealD 3D screens and Dolby Surround Sound, bringing the escapism and excitement of a trip to the cinema to more than 17,000 people every year. As well as screening the latest releases, donated by the film industry, MediCinema provides separate nursing care to ensure patients, whatever their condition, have the best and safest experience while in the cinema.
We’re delighted to be working with MediCinema to bring the world’s most original comedy films to those who will benefit from it the most. Please note: these screenings are only accessible by inpatients and/or outpatients, their staff and carers at the listed hospitals. If you would like to find out more about MediCinema, make a donation or support them in any other way, get in touch at medicinema.org.uk.

PLAY 4 CALAIS
BE A LIGHT IN THE DARK
PLAY 4 CALAIS is hosted by the Women and Children’s Centre and Baloo Boys Youth Centre for film screenings by day and The Good Chance Theatre by night. We are generously supported by The Lexi Cinema and its roaming little sister The Nomad with technical equipment and cinema supplies.
Every donation makes a huge difference; every refugee we meet is an interesting, intelligent, astonishingly brave and brilliant individual who’s fallen on desperately hard times, but still remembers and craves the wonder, joy and escapism of cinema. And, personally speaking, I feel that every child deserves to laugh, live happily, play safely and experience the magic of HAPPY FEET for the first time.
Thank you for helping us to help them, Alix, founder of PLAY 4 CALAIS
