About Us

Showroom Cinema and Workstation Creative Business Centre is based in a converted 1930’s building, located in the centre of Sheffield close to the train station. The once derelict building was acquired for redevelopment by Sheffield Media & Exhibition Centre Ltd (SMEC) in 1989 and opened in stages from 1993 -1998. It is now an internationally significant cultural centre and hub for the region and a treasured independent cinema.

Showroom is one of the largest independent cinema in Europe with four luxury auditoria, education spaces and a café/bar. It presents a lively programme of films from around the world, from contemporary film to classic cinema, and is the place to be for anyone with a passion for film.

Showroom regularly hosts festivals and creative events which give a chance to meet experts from different media, learn new skills and cultivate new ideas.

The Workstation is a hothouse for the creative industries sector, with over 60 tenant companies working with clients in the region, the UK and beyond.

Open 364 days of the year, the Showroom and Workstation Creative Business Centre is a vibrant cultural centre in the heart of Sheffield, a place to meet, work, learn and play. We invite you to join us.
