UPDATE: In light of the ongoing response to the current coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, CW+, the Trust and MediCinema have decided to temporarily suspend screenings in the CW+ MediCinema.
While this decision will inevitably be disappointing for those people who use and value our cinema, it has been made in the interests of protecting patients and staff.
This decision will be kept under review, and we will update you when we have any further information.
Patients can enjoy the latest film releases, free of charge, right in the heart of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, at the CW+ MediCinema.
The state-of-the-art cinema is fully digitalised with 3D screen and Dolby Surround Sound, 40 luxury cinema seats and capacity for six wheelchairs and five beds, which enable patients to enjoy time away from wards with their loved ones. Two nurses are present at every screening so patients can continue to be cared for.
When the space is not being used for film screenings, it provides a state-of-the-art teaching and conference facility for clinical staff in the hospital.
We commissioned artist Andy Council to produce two bespoke murals for the exterior walls, read more about this commission here.
“The CW+ MediCinema has been such a huge thing for us. Through the years in hospital, it has given Sienna the invaluable chance to be the same as other children: the chance to do things an ordinary family, an ordinary child, an ordinary person would do – and that means so much.”
Mandy, mum of 4-year-old Sienna

How do I get a ticket?
The CW+ MediCinema is free and open for all patients, their families and carers.
The CW+ MediCinema Manager will try to visit each ward on the afternoon of the screening. However, if you would like to sign up for a screening in advance, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, ward and bed number or ask your nurse to do so for you.
Outpatients must bring a recent appointment letter with them.
You can find the CW+ MediCinema on the 3rd Floor (Lift Bank C or D) of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
