• Make the most of the big screen

    Hiring a cinema is a special experience, so get your loved ones or friends together and stick on your favourite film. Whether it's a cult classic, art house flick, or that cheesy film you have watched over and over again, we have the perfect space for your event.




We’re living the dream having our very own cinema.

So whether it’s that special party, celebration or works ‘do’, why not enjoy the glamour of the big screen? We are available for private hire, business use, entertainment and celebrations. We offer hires for up to 40 guests, and the hire fee gives you private access to our auditorium to enjoy a film screening/s of your choice. You can screen any film so long as it’s available on BluRay and has already had a theatrical release in the UK. We can also provide food at an additional price per head, let us know what you’d like, and we’ll see if we can provide it for you!

Our bar and café area will remain open to the general public during your event, so please consider this when booking. 

Wirksworth provides a wide range of accommodation, from quirky rental accommodation to bijou bed and breakfast, all within walking distance from The Northern Light.

**As we are a fully operational cinema we typically have films programmed in 7 nights per week, so we ask for plenty of advance for evening hire requests, in addition to this we may not be able to fulfill your request if a popular cinema release is available on your preferred date. Our busy period runs from September – April and so there will be limited availability for hires during these months**
