About Rio Cinema

The Rio is an independent genuine 1930's art deco picture palace in Dalston, Hackney. They show a mixture of arthouse and mainstream films, all programmed by the in-house team and shown on their two screens, the spectacular 400 seat main art deco auditorium and the new state-of-the-art 30 seat second screen with its leather armchair seats and it's own cocktail bar and lounge.

The Rio is run as a non-profit charity, and they are very proud to say they are London's longest operating community cinema, having been open for over 40 years.

Looking ahead there are plans to refurbish the main lobby and cafe bar, so watch this space...

About the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme

Since 2004, the Japan Foundation, London has been organising an annual Japanese film programme in close partnership with distinguished film venues and programme advisors in the UK.

Each year, from recently released contemporary films to classics and anime, the Japanese films which they believe are worth showing but do not necessarily have an opportunity to be screened in this country are curated under a carefully chosen theme to highlight trends in Japanese cinema and showcase the versatility and uniqueness displayed by its filmmakers.
