Millennium Point is a multi-award-winning event and conference venue in the Eastside of Birmingham City centre. Home to 17 spacious and flexible event spaces, we’re home to a large variety of exciting and vibrant events – none more so than in our giant screen auditorium. Here’s everything you need to know about hiring one of Birmingham’s biggest screens at Millennium Point.
What is it?
The Auditorium at Millennium Point is a spacious theatre-style event space. It holds 354-tiered-seating and a 6.2m x 2.3m stage underneath a giant 24m x 12m sized screen. Formerly one of the first IMAXs in the region, this remarkable space in our landmark public building can be accessed from Level 4 and Level 1, via a striking twin curved staircase in our open-plan Platform space. Platform features a fully licenced bar and toilet facilities with optional features such as a cloakroom, stage, projector screen and additional AV depending on your event. This space can be combined with the Auditorium at a reasonable cost to elevate your event.
The Auditorium with giant screen at Millennium Point is available to hire from as little as £500+VAT.
What can it be used for?
Millennium Point’s Giant Screen Auditorium has been used for a multitude of exciting events and, like our other spaces, can accommodate almost anything you can think of. The Auditorium is the home of the popular annual Birmingham Film Festival and VSFighting, one of Europe’s largest fighting game esports tournaments. It’s regularly used for film screenings, award ceremonies, conferences, exhibitions, panels and Q&As and, more recently, a live performance space.
What comes with it?
Unlike more conventional venues with screens, such as cinemas or theatres, you will get exclusive use of the auditorium without having to worry about fitting into a schedule or facing higher costs to cover loss of earnings. This screen is yours when you want it, for less money. Each event comes with your own dedicated event manager who will be on hand to assist you from initial enquiry through to the big day. Your event will be supported by our dedicated AV team to ensure the smooth running of your event at no extra cost.
Where is it?
The Giant Screen Auditorium is located inside the landmark public building Millennium Point, Curzon Street in the Eastside of Birmingham City centre. The multi-award-winning venue is a 15-minute walk from Birmingham New Street Station and major inter-city transport links. Millennium Point has an onsite 900 space multi-story car park owned by Birmingham City cancel which is easily accessible from the M6, M5 and M42.

“I just wanted to say how great mine and family’s experience was watching trolls today. I was very anxious but was immediately put at ease from all the things you had implemented to make it COVID safe. It was lovely to do something normal again with my child without a worry. So, thank you very much!”
