Gordon Square Cinema
The Birkbeck Cinema at 43 Gordon Square, which opened in 2007 won a Royal Institute of British Architecture Award (RIBA) in the London category – the gold standard in architectural prizes.
The annual RIBA Awards are given for buildings that have high architectural standards and make a substantial contribution to the local environment. Winners in the same London category as Birkbeck included the new Wembley Stadium, St Pancras and Terminal Five at Heathrow Airport.
As well as the cinema itself, there are multi-coloured break-out spaces for informal meetings and studying.
We hosts regular free film screenings and the cinema is an important resource for the Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image, which is also housed in the School of Arts.
