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 is now open for patients. Screenings are now socially distanced and we are, as always, adhering to strict infection control guidelines. Spaces at the CW+ MediCinema are limited and priority will always be given to inpatients.
In partnership with MediCinema, Hospedia and Filmbankmedia, we are delighted to be able to also screen free films direct to patients on their bedside television screens at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Patients can tune in to Channel 39, where the films will play on a two hour loop from 8am-10pm, and will change every Tuesday and Friday. Take a look at this weeks films below.
How do I get a ticket?
The CW+ MediCinema is free and open for all patients, their families and carers. As spaces are limited due to social distancing, priority will be given to inpatients.
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.
“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
