Your Private Party
We cater for a wide range of private parties and are committed to hosting events which our customers love! From a first enquiry through to the event itself, we offer a personal party planner who will go through your requirements and work with you to create the perfect package. We have versatile spaces and a wealth of experience in how to adapt these to suit you. Your party planner can put you in touch with additional services such as catering, entertainment, and technical needs.
Private Party Prices: Monday – Thursday Evening – from £265 for 6 hour hire. Friday to Sunday Evening – from £295 for 6 hour hire.
There are extra services available to create a more bespoke package, which you can arrange with your party planner who will give you a quote for the additional costs.
The Booking Process
Fill in the form below: “The Old Court Parties Enquiry”
You will be contacted within 3 working days to arrange the booking date, at this point your party will be pencilled into our schedule and our party planner will confirm all the details. This may be by email, phone or meeting, depending on the amount to plan.
From this an invoice will be drawn up and sent to you. This will be payable within 7 days. Once it has been paid, the party is a secure booking and our schedule will be updated.
As our staff are often working on events and therefore in and out of the office, the quickest way to communicate is by email to email@example.com
Children’s parties take place in the basement anytime from 2.00pm to 7.00pm on the weekend. Other times may be arranged if available.
The hire includes furniture, LED lighting and a bluetooth speaker. The usual furniture layout is a long table with chairs all around for the party food. Tables are provided for cake, presents and a general staging area for the party parents. There are some comfy chairs for older party guests. This leaves plenty of room for an entertainer or disco and also dancing and running about space for the party guests.
As well as booking for the times the party will run, you will need to book time for setting up and clearing up. At the end of the party all rubbish must be bagged and taken to our bins. Any decorations must be taken down and removed. The floor must be swept of crumbs and debris. We will provide brooms, dustpan and brush and if necessary a hoover. We do offer a party clear up service for an extra charge, let your party planner know in advance if you are interested.
Children’s Party Prices: Fixed price of £170.
You can choose any film we have on sale around the time of your party, or you can play an older film, no longer screening in cinemas. Please note, we usually require two weeks to arrange a film once payment has been received. Once a film has been ordered by the venue it cannot be changed.
The full Auditorium seats up to 135 people. For a more intimate cinema we can open just the lower section and seat up to 60 people.
You’re welcome to take in popcorn and similar packaged food, but we ask that no crumb-making food which could be trodden into the carpet be taken in.
We kindly ask customers to take care not tos spill drinks in the cinema and advise customers not to take champagne flutes into the Auditorium.
We may be able to reserve the tables outside the Auditorium entrance for your party before or after your film if this is requested with a member of our team.
We do not offer Cinema Parties to children under the age of 16.
Cinema Party Prices: Daytime – £265 per film. Monday – Thursday Evening – £295 per film. Friday to Sunday Evening – £345 per film.
