Memories are made in front of a cinema screen

Capture those moments by naming a seat at BFI Southbank.

Cherish the memory of a loved one, thank that special someone, or celebrate the place you found your inspiration, formed friendships or enriched your life.

For a donation of £500 you can name the back of a BFI Southbank cinema seat for five years – and in doing so, you will be supporting the BFI in protecting the UK’s film heritage and supporting its future.

What next?

Please note:

  • Naming a seat is a charitable donation, and does not entitle you to admission to performances, or exclusivity to the seat when booking tickets.
  • Donations to name a seat directly support the BFI, registered charity no. 298909, but they are not eligible for Gift Aid.
  • Plaques are in place for five years and after this period we will contact you and ask if you wish to renew your seat. If you wish to name a seat for a longer period, please feel free to contact us and we will be very happy to discuss this with you.
  • Seats are subject to availability, and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Thank you so much for your support.
