Enjoy this belter of a film on our gorgeous riverside terrace, with a chilled or hot drink!
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Please note that chairs are provided, though you may want to bring a blanket if the evening is chilly. Drinks and snacks can be purchased from our cafe. If you would like to eat beforehand, please allow an hour or so.

We present a thriving year-round programme of cinema, theatre, exhibitions and workshops in our stunning riverside location in Brentford, opposite Kew Gardens. We are an independent charity with a wide outreach programme across Hounslow and beyond too, reaching tens of thousands of people who would otherwise enjoy little or no arts provision, and working with them to build community through the arts.
Our Brentford venue houses an independent cinema, 250-seat theatre, contemporary art gallery and creative spaces for the community. In our cinema, find the latest movies, as well as festivals and talks. In our theatre, discover children’s theatre, cabaret, dance, fringe theatre and digital performance. And in our gallery, a year-round programme of free exhibitions focusing on digital arts. We aim to showcase the very best of arts and culture in West London.
Our large riverside cafe and restaurant – including a gorgeous outdoor riverside terrace – is the perfect place to while away a day by the river, or chill out before or after a show. The food is freshly-prepared Indian, with a range of Indian bar snacks at the bar and a fabulous-value Express Lunch if you’re in a rush, and children’s menu available.
Beyond our venue, discover Bell Square, our outdoor arts venue in Hounslow Town Centre, where we present fortnightly free performances May-December. We also run the major Arts Council-funded Creative People and Places programme in Hounslow. Our 10-year vision is to build a confident, colourful and creative Hounslow, and we are well on the way already. You can read more about our Creative People & Places Hounslow work here.
