Screen25 is twice-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 and evolving into a twice-weekly cinema soon after. We are proud to continue our mission in uniting our diverse community through the power of film.
