commercial & Private events at EartH

EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney) is a buried treasure – a discarded, long-forgotten and beautiful Art Deco cinema that has lain hidden in Dalston for decades.

EartH comprises of two event spaces and a restaurant. On the ground floor, a multi-purpose 1250 capacity dedicated events space and upstairs the theatre, a 750 capacity tiered seating venue with jaw-dropping, original 1930s features.

Earth is a multi-functional space which is also available for private events and corporate hire. Our team are able to help envision, produce and host a wide range of events. The money raised from these hires directly funds our artistic programme. After a decade of experience in Shoreditch, we are bringing the same level of gold standard audio, lighting and production to our events at EartH.


The theatre has a capacity of 750 seats. The room hasn’t been touched since it screened its final film - Scarface - in 1984 and we fully intend to retain all of its glorious, original features. Juxtaposed against this faded grandeur, the space will be fitted out with state-of-the-art AV and will play host to talks, conferences, AGMs, press launches and screenings.

Working with L-acoustics

We are proud to be working with partner L-Acoustics, the leader in professional audio. The Theatre has been equipped with their pioneering new L-ISA system, a new technology for multidimensional sound and a new way of designing, processing, mixing and experiencing sound. The Theatre is the first venue in Europe to be equipped with L-ISA.

In L-ISA Hyperreal Sound, each audio input is treated as an object that lives in dimensions beyond the traditional left and right stereo approach. In addition to panning left and right, with L-ISA, the sound engineer can use elevation or vertical panning, depth, and can even adjust the width of each sound object in the mix. Voices and instruments no longer have to fight with one another for space. Instead of using EQ and compression to make the mix work, the sound engineer uses placement to create room for each audio input in the overall sonic landscape. The result is lower distortion, greater consistency, added clarity, and correct localisation between the audio and the performers. The audience becomes fully immersed in the music and experiences a deeper sense of connection with the performers because the sound has become real in that it emanates from the correct place.
