MediCinema is a UK-based registered charity that builds, installs and manages state-of-the-art cinemas, screening the latest releases the film industry has to offer in hospitals and health facilities. MediCinema was founded by Christine Hill MBE.
MediCinema has six cinemas that are located in health facilities around the UK and provided vital support to over 16,000 patients and families last year (2014). The charity also provides separate nursing care to ensure patients have the best and safest experience while in the cinema. Current MediCinemas are based at the St Thomas' Hospital in London, England, South Gwent Children's Centre in Newport, Wales, Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow (soon to be moved to the Southern General Hospital in 2015), Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court, Guy's Hospital, London and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London due to open in 2015. The cinemas are made wheelchair accessible and the majority allow for beds to be wheeled in for the viewing.
