Cinema in Style
The Hailsham Pavilion Theatre is a fully independent cinema, live music venue and theatre, based in Hailsham town centre. The beautiful interior is fully restored and features high quality decor associated with the 'Golden Age' of cinema and theatre entertainment. Comfortable seating, spacious leg room and convenient free local parking all combine to enhance your experience. The Hailsham Pavilion Theatre not only screens a full range of contemporary and classic films including 'world class event' cinema screenings from the National Theatre, Royal Opera House and other iconic venues, but also plays host to live entertainment acts, professional and amateur theatre groups and visiting societies.

A unique community project
We are a registered charity and a true community venue. A dedicated team of enthusiastic volunteers assist in the running and maintenance of this very special establishment.

We also offer full disabled access, a state-of-the-art hearing loop system as well as a full audio description service for our visually impaired customers. Our volunteer staff are primed and ready to give you the warmest of welcomes and they will assist you in every way possible to ensure you enjoy your experience.

Educational liaison and student film events
We work very closely with local schools and charities as well as the library service, and host educational film screenings, musical workshops and live showcases, as well as projection room tours and reading events. We even provide local schools with a venue for pupils to present and see their own films on the big screen with a series of student film events.

As a vital part of the local voluntary sector we provide voluntary work in a large number of capacities for over 150 people from a wider ange of ages and backgrounds. This gives local people a very real opportunity to give something back to their community, meet new people, learn additional skills, improve their employment options and overall quality of life.

Finally, The Pavilion exists as a true community project whose purpose and ambitions are to provide the very best in entertainment to the town and wider area at great value and with a smile!
