Welcome to People Powered Cinema


ourscreen.com was designed to help film fans watch the films they want to see at their local cinema, either by creating and sharing their own screenings, or by booking tickets to ones other people have already created.

Creating your own cinema screening is simple. Just pick your film, choose a cinema, select a date and time, and invite your friends. If enough people book tickets, your screening happens.

Don't worry, money is only taken once the screening is confirmed. If enough tickets aren't sold to the screening, it doesn't happen and no one is charged any money.


Booking tickets to a screening is even simpler. Just select the screening you want to attend, like you would with a normal screening, and book tickets to it. That's it. To support a screening further, and help it sell enough tickets to become confirmed, just share it with your friends.

We're adding more cinemas and films all the time. If you cant find what you're looking for, or just fancy a chat, please get in touch. You can also read our FAQs here.

Decision Tree
Here's a little more on how this all works: 

Selecting your date and time. 

You can decide when the film you want to see plays in your cinema.

Different cinemas will be available on different dates and at different times. To see when they're available, just go through the process of creating a screening (picking a film and selecting the cinema). Before you finish you'll be shown what times are free for you to host your screening in. 

Who can come to your screening?

There are two types of screening - private, and public.

If you create a private screening you'll need to tell us roughly how many people you want to come. That's how we calculate the price. 

Once that many tickets are sold, your screening will be confirmed. Only you can invite people to a private screening, so you'll need to make sure enough people book tickets on your own.

This is a great option if you've always wanted a cinema to yourself, or if you're organising a party.
 

Public screenings are open to anyone, and people will be able to buy tickets through ourscreen.com or at the cinema.

The screening is confirmed once a certain number of tickets are sold.

We promote these screenings on ourscreen.com and the cinemas help us too.

We need to reserve payment but money is only taken if and when the screening is confirmed.
