We are the Lexi Cinema team – and we need your help! We need to demonstrate to Brent Council that there is community support for our dream to build a second screen. The Lexi is open 364 days a year - staffed by our amazing local volunteers - bringing you blockbusters, independent and world cinema and documentaries. But we offer more than this – and could bring even more to the community we are part of with a second screen.

Behind the scenes, we run many valued community programmes: Black History Studies, a women-only refugee film club, a popular and affordable “neighbourhood film school”, screenings for the hard of hearing, seniors discussion groups and affordable family shows. Brent is severely under-served in terms of community arts venues, and Lexi Screen 2 would be a resource for the whole borough.

Thanks to the generosity of RISE Design Studio we have some plans to share (subject to planning permission of course) at an open house at the Lexi on Saturday 22 June, 10am - 12 midday, and on Tuesday 2nd July, 6.30pm- 8pm.

In 2020 Brent will have the honour of being the official London Borough of Culture.  There is no better time to make an investment in this vital cultural asset and ensure it can deliver even more for the community.

We are aiming for 500 signatures by Tuesday 25th June. Please share the link, and remember to include your Brent postcode when you comment.

With a second screen, we could do so much more.
