Screen25 is weekly community-led cinema in the heart of South Norwood. We offer a welcoming space for local people to come together and enjoy the latest independent and mainstream films, enhanced by Q&As, panel discussions, shorts and much more!


Our story

Stanley's Film Club was established in 2015 by a group of local volunteers who wanted to bring independent cinema to SE25. We were originally based at Stanley Halls, where we grew from a monthly film club to a weekly community cinema within months, achieving endorsement from the BFI and the Prince's Trust. Two years later we relocated to our current home at the Harris Academy, rebranding as Screen25. We are proud to continue our mission in uniting our diverse community through the power of film.

You can buy tickets online or on the door when we haven't sold out. Our ticket office opens 30 minutes before each performance. There are no online booking fees – we pay these so you don’t have to. We regret that we are unable to offer refunds.

We believe that cinema should be accessible for everyone, regardless of background or circumstance. If you do not fit any of our concessionary types but need a bit of help with the cost of a full price ticket, feel free to drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do.


    Local filmmaker?

    We have a rolling call for local short films to screen alongside our feature films.

    One of our goals as a community cinema is to provide a platform for independent film, as well as an opportunity for local residents to discover emerging talent on their doorstep. We are inviting local filmmakers to send us their short films for us to include in our upcoming programme.

    Volunteer with us

    Donate your time and give back to your community through the magic of cinema!

    We heavily rely on volunteers to keep the show on the road and are always on the look out for enthusiastic volunteers to help out with the running of our events. Our volunteers are expected to commit to a minimum of one 4-5 hour shift a month in exchange for free cinema tickets.
