For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged.
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir. The first opera by a Black composer presented on the Met stage and featuring a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown—two of the creators of the recent production of the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess—co-direct this new staging, live in cinemas on October 23. Baritone Will Liverman, one of opera’s most exciting young artists, stars as Charles, alongside sopranos Angel Blue as Destiny/Loneliness/Greta and Latonia Moore as Billie. Please Note: the dates of Met Opera productions may be subject to change.

We do need to fit venue hire screenings into our standard cinema session schedule. We provide recommended times which are flexible depending on the approval of the Events Manager per booking.
Absolutely! Our state of the art auditoriums can be hired for corporate presentations and product launches. For a reservation and quote, please contact the Events Manager at the preferred location.
At Dendy Cinemas groups of 10 or more receive admission discounts, which vary based on total number of tickets purchased. Please note, this form of booking does not give you private cinema use, or the option of in-cinema presentations, however catering and candy bar deals can be negotiated. To organise your group booking please contact us.
For smaller groups we suggest purchasing a booklet of 10 Dendy Cinema Tickets from the box office. Buying books of 10 allows you to access a discounted ticket price, though it does not allow for private cinema use or in-cinema presentations. Catering and candy bar deals can be negotiated in advance. To purchase a booklet of 10 discounted vouchers for group use, please contact us.
Cinema hires are subject to availability and are generally available 7 days a week from 9am - 10pm (ending at midnight). Off-Peak times are Monday - Wednesday, and Peak times are Thursday - Sunday. Special requests on negotiation.
Whilst we can ensure your event runs smoothly on the day, we do not assist with publicity and promotions for private bookings.
This option is not available at all sites. Please contact the Events Manager at the preferred location.
Yes there are. To help us prepare a quote, please contact your city's Dendy Events coordinator.
Yes, you can. We can screen the latest Dendy releases, but also your favourite golden oldie, your home movies, or even a TV show. We will always need to make sure that we have the footage in the correct format for our projectors, and that copy rights are taken care of, which may result in financial fees. Send our event manager your special request and we can help you create your perfect night out.
In cinema we are quite flexible, but dependent on availability. For group bookings, tickets become available on Tuesday at 4pm for the week following Thursday.
For an event, you can contact us about two weeks in advance, which should give us enough time to work through all your details together. The further you plan ahead though, the bigger the chance you can make a reservation on the day you would like to hold your event.
