This notice describes your rights as a visitor or customer of The Magic Lantern Cinema. It provides information about your rights relating to your personal information along with how we collect, use and share your data. This privacy notice is to inform you how we collect, use and disclose your personal data. The Magic Lantern Cinema is committed to abiding by all laws and this includes the Data Protection Act 2018 which incorporates the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We comply with the principles of the Act and aim to maintain consistently high levels of best practice in our processing of your information. This Policy is intended to assist you in making informed decisions about your information when using our website or attending our venue. Please take a minute to read and understand the Policy.

By using our website and attending our venue you consent to our collection and use of your information as described in this notice. If we change our notice, policy and/or procedures, we will post those changes on our website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it. Your continued use of the website or attendance at our venue after this notice has been amended shall be deemed to be your continued acceptance of this notice, as amended. We encourage you to bookmark this web page and review this notice regularly.



All your information will be held and used in accordance with the Act where applicable.

When you visit and use our website or attend events at our venue you may provide us with or we may collect your information such as your postal address, email address and other personal information. You may provide or we may collect this information in a number of ways:

Information you voluntarily provide to us:

We collect and maintain information that you voluntarily submit to us during your use of our website or attendance at our events. For example:​


Where you have provided us with the appropriate consents, or where the Act entitles us to do so, we may send you marketing materials about upcoming events.  We are fully committed to ensuring the rights and obligations set out in the Act and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 are respected.


We follow appropriate security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your information so as to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. We also require those parties to whom we transfer personal information to comply with the same. However, unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. So, we cannot ensure the security of your information transmitted by you to us via the internet. Any such transmission is at your own risk and you acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of your information, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the Act. Once we have received your information we will use security procedures and features to prevent unauthorised access to it.


We trust users to be responsible, and the huge majority of people who post on our channels respect that trust. The Magic Lantern Cinema may remove any content that it considers to be unlawful (or which promotes unlawful conduct) or which it deems inappropriate, including but not limited to:​

Some comments might offend you but won't necessarily violate our guidelines. We recognise that people think, feel and react in different ways. Assessing content may involve a delicate balancing act and our assessment may not please everyone all of the time.
