In the area of London Fields in the east London district of Hackney. The Institute of Light is a self-styled “one-stop cultural hub set in Arch 376, an enigmatic railway arch under the rumble of the ‘Great Eastern Jazz Line’, working as a multi-sensory space, repertory cinema, vinyl record store, film, music and photography bookshop and social café.”
The IOL opened on 8th June 2016. Uniquely, the nicely raked cinema seating faces the glass entrance doors. When a film is shown, the screen drops down in front of the doors, and patrons then use the rear entrance, directly into the cafe/bar at the rear.
During the day, when the cinema is not operating, the space in front of the seating is occupied by sales tables holding boxes of vinyl records. The Institute of Light was closed on 27th September 2018 with Brady Jandreau in “The Rider”.
