The Institute of Light

Cinema, restaurant, vinyl record shop

The Institute of Light is a cinema and venue in Hackney, showing the latest new releases and classic films alongside a delicious restaurant and bar hosting kitchen residencies and pop-ups. We’re nestled in the train line arches that run alongside the leafy space of London Fields.

Our cinema has the cheapest standard tickets in Hackney, starting at £6 for one of our original airplane seats. We’ve also got cosy sofas for two people.

From Wednesday to Sunday, you’ll also find The BBE Store, holding court in our cinema. Stocking a treasure trove of new and used soul, disco, funk, house, jazz, hip-hop and global beats vinyl. Regular in-store events see some of the world’s greatest DJ’s grace its decks with free entry for all.
