Rio Cinema


The Rio is a non-profit cinema run for the benefit of the local community in Dalston that required serious renovations to the exterior of the Grade II listed building. Span Trust replaced their exterior floodlights with LED, coloured lighting. Improving the appearance of the building and considerably reducing the electricity costs of lighting the building after dark. Rio works with local schools, community groups, care homes, Hackney Borough, local families and those on low incomes, ensuring cinema is accessible. Span Trust are delighted to help improve, sustain and expand the work of this community cinema.
