The Screen Room is located on Broad Street, Nottingham,
just opposite the Broadway Cinema.
It's the brainchild of movie enthusiast Steven
He was tipped off about the availability of the
building by his brother, who lives in Nottingham.
Just for the record the Screen Room has 21 seats
plus one reserved for staff.
Steven claims this makes it the smallest single-screen cinema
in the world, beating one in Australia which has 22 customer seats.
|The man with the dream - Steven Metcalf
It might seem a gamble opening a movie house opposite
one of the most highly regarded independent cinemas in the country,
but Steven Metcalf is no novice.
He already runs The Electric Cinema in Birmingham,
which has two screens catering for 100 people, and has been involved
with cinemas for 20 years.
But he admits, when it comes to running the smallest
cinema in the world "nobody else can be as mad as I am."
He says the Screen Room will be aimed at film fans
and those who missed out on film releases the first time round.
World cinema and cult classics will form the staple
programming diet. It'll also be one of the few cinemas to put on
double-bills with two films for the price of one, such as a Hitchcock
double-bill with Rear Window and Vertigo.
The very first movie to be shown in the Screen
Room was Lost In La Mancha, a true documentary-style film recounting
the troubles faced by Terry Gilliam as he tried to make The Man
Who Killed Don Quixote.
Eventually he plans to put on late night screenings
in the hope of attracting customers coming out of restaurants and
pubs in the Hockley area.
