Being in hospital is never easy, but if you’re there for days, weeks or even months, it can be particularly challenging. The CW+ MediCinema at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital provides some welcome escapism for patients and their families.

At CW+ MediCinema, patients can enjoy the latest film releases free of charge. It’s a great way for them to enjoy a few hours of normality away from the wards with their loved ones.

The state-of-the-art cinema is fully digitalised with a 3D screen, Dolby Surround Sound and 40 luxury cinema seats, as well as capacity for six wheelchairs and five beds. Two nurses are present at every screening so patients can continue to be cared for. Priority is given to inpatients.

When the cinema is not being used for film screenings, it can be used as a teaching and conference facility for clinical staff in the hospital.

The CW+ MediCinema is a partnership between CW+ and MediCinema. Together, our aim is to bring the magic of film to thousands of patients of all ages, and bring together families separated by illness through an enjoyable shared experience.
