I visited the Cinema in the Power Station on Friday 17th February 2023 to see the Marvel Comics' adaptation “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”. In a nice touch, alongside the trailers and adverts, there was a short history of the power station, which included clips from some of the many films that have used the site as a location over the years.

There are 213 + 2 mobility seats in the Dolby Cinema (screen 1) plus four VIP boxes (unknown number of seats per box) per the ticket booking page on their official site.

The premises licence includes plans on the last page.

The plans are from FDA Architecture, with the client listed as Empire Design. (?) According to their website, FDA Architecture were also involved with The Cinema at Selfridges.

Seating capacity is marked on the plans, but the low resolution renders them virtually illegible! I think Screen 1 is given as 221 fixed + 6 disabled + 13 VIP; total 240. This is at odds with the current figure of 213 regular seats given in the current Cinema Treasures description; I have no idea which is correct…

Screen widths as scaled off the plans are ~10m (= ~33ft.) wide for the Dolby Cinema and ~9.5 (= ~31ft.) for Screen 2.

Not sure if this therefore qualifies as the smallest Dolby Cinema screen size; it surely must be one of them.

Worth noting that it’s the first independent Dolby Cinema site in the world
