The Rio is an independent Art Deco picture palace in Dalston, Hackney. We show a mixture of arthouse and mainstream films, all programmed by the in-house team and shown on our single, full-sized silver screen.

Our building is Grade II listed by English Heritage, who admire the 'sweeping curves' of the Rio's 1930s auditorium. To add to the traditional cinema experience, we have plush red velvet seats, atmospheric music before the show, and long red curtains that swish back before the film starts.
