A brilliant new 56 seater venue in the heart of Liverpool – built by volunteers in the shell of the old Magistrates Court on Victoria Street, the cinema is run entirely by Volunteers. The programme is progressive and eclectic – anyone can submit programme ideas and the volunteers will select those that fit the cinema’s ethos. LGBT friendly from it’s outset, this cinema is right on the edge of Liverpool’s vibrant Stanley Street Quarter, Liverpool’s “gay village”.
The Black-E (formerly The Blackie) – a combination of a contemporary arts centre with a community centre – was launched in 1968 as the U.K.’s first community arts project. The commitments made then remain the commitments today – to young people (offering, in the words of The Last Poets, “affection, protection, direction”) – to a cultural programme emphasising participation and involvement (“do-ing” as well as “viewing”) – to education (formal and informal) – and to quality of work with equality of provision.

The Plaza is an independent, volunteer-run cinema in Waterloo, Sefton., keeping cinema affordable for the local community.
Since reopening as a community cinema in 1997, the three-screen Plaza has promoted a range of commercial, limited release, foreign language and cult film. More importantly it has developed an innovative menu of community events designed to promote the social, educational and inspirational value of film. It is, as far as we are aware, one of the few charities in the UK to provide essential community facilities and encourage social inclusion through cinema.
The Plaza has a history of supporting LGBT film and hosted screenings for Liverpool Pride on 2013.
The Light has been an amazing partner for Liverpool Pride since March 2013, hosting monthly screenings and providing a great welcome.
