Our giant screen measures 24m x 12m in size, with a 6.2m x 2.3m stage underneath, perfect for presenting lectures and showcasing presentation slides and video content to engage an audience. This remarkable space is connected via a striking twin curved staircase to our open-plan Platform space on level 1. Formerly one of Birmingham’s first IMAX cinemas, this space has previously been used as a premium lecture theatre for Birmingham City University and other educators for its impressive size.
