Run Run Shaw and Mezzanine

Flexible spaces with full audiovisual capabilities for a range of occasions, including screenings, receptions and dinners

Versatile and fully equipped spaces for screenings, receptions and dinners.

Sir Run Run Shaw was a legendary film producer and godfather of the kung fu genre. We are proud to count him as one of BAFTA’s most dedicated patrons in his lifetime: Sir Run Run Shaw made substantial donations to BAFTA during the 1970s and we named the room in his honour in 1976.

Since then, the Run Run Shaw Theatre has become an adaptable space and forms the perfect setting for a wide range of events, from screenings and board meetings to buffets and dinners.

Run Run Shaw Theatre

With advanced audiovisual capabilities, The Run Run Shaw Theatre transforms from intimate screenings to breezy drinks receptions with ease. When the doors to the Mezzanine are opened the generous space is flooded with natural light from a glass-roofed atrium.

Currently installed in The Run Run Shaw Theatre is a Cascade 117 collaboration video wall from Prysm, Inc., a privately held designer and manufacturer of video wall systems that deliver immersive and engaging user experiences.
See full specifications here.

The Run Run Shaw Theatre also offers direct access to the Princess Anne Theatre, allowing events to easily combine both spaces.


A sliding sound proof door adjoins the Run Run Shaw Theatre to the Mezzanine.

The Mezzanine benefits from an abundance of natural light from the original Victorian atrium and has open access to the bar and restaurant below.

Together with the Gallery, the Mezzanine is our newest addition to the venue and was constructed to created meet growing popularity of the space, bringing total capacity up to 120 guests.
