The Screen Room

The Screen Room was a 21-seat, single screen independent cinema in the Hockley area of Nottingham, England. It opened on 27 September 2002.[1]

At the time it opened, it featured in the Guinness Book of Records as "the world's smallest cinema", beating an Australian cinema with 22 seats.[1] That record was subsequently beaten by Palastkino, a nine-seat cinema in Germany.

The cinema mainly screened cult films and world cinema. It closed in 2011.
