Charity Insurance | Social Enterprises | Voluntary Organisations | Community Groups

Typical Risks

  • Public Liability and Employer Liability* insurance for your community cinema.  *We recommend this because volunteers are classed as employees and not members of the public.
  • We can cover your cinema and help you make sure you meet the mandatory requirements of the hiring facilities.
  • We can also include cover for your equipment such as projectors or sound equipment.  We can also insure for your money too.

Insurance for Community Cinemas

Community cinemas are springing up to tackle isolation, bring people together and enjoy film; all over the UK!

While cinema is generally a low risk activity, you will normally find that the hiring facility will require you to organise Public Liability Insurance for your community cinema.  It is good practice too!

At Ladbrook, we have lots of experience supporting cinemas with low cost cover.  We offer specialist advice to voluntary groups and we would be delighted to hear from your cinema.

Community Cinemas are a popular way of bringing communities together, sometimes in isolated locations but also in major cities.

Customer Reviews

Doodleaid would like to thank Ladbrook for their service, professionalism, speed of service and friendliness.  All staff were very helpful and we would have no hesitation in recommending Ladbrook.

Bev, Doodleaid

Very many thanks for getting the paperwork back to us today.

Sylvia also asked that I send the thanks and appreciation of everyone connected with Mental Health Aberdeen, for the skillful negotiations you have demonstrated – as evidenced by the affordability of our new policy. We shall certainly be recommending your brokerage, but especially the efficiency and friendliness of your team, to other charitable organisations in our area.

I hope you have a great weekend and once again, thank you all so very much.

Bea, Mental Health Aberdeen

We have just finalised our 7th annual insurance renewal through Ladbrook Insurance and are very happy with the service received. The Account Handlers have always striven to offer competitive quotes and answered any queries or given further explanations by email or phone as appropriate and we have found this personal touch not only professional but also very reassuring


Community Cinema Insurance

We can offer advice on the right community cinema insurance policies for your group.

In some cases hiring venues may insist on higher levels of public liability insurance for your cinema, we can help advise you and meet the requirements of your venue.

We would normally recommend Employer Liability cover to cinemas too.  Although we understand that this might seem odd to a volunteer cinema, yet the volunteers would be classed as employees under most insurance policies that we see.  Hence, if a volunteer made an allegation against the group, you would require this cover to defend you and meet any subsequent compensation payments.

If your community cinema is planning any events, whether it be fundraising or perhaps an outdoor performance, we can help advise on these matters.  Normally we can extend the existing policy to incorporate such things but we will advise groups on an individual basis.

You will also have equipment that you may wish to insure.  We will seek to provide cover for your projector and equipment on an all risks basis.  This is important because if your vital equipment was accidentally damaged or stolen (with no forced entry to the property) then you would still want to be able to replace those items.

If you are looking for community cinema insurance, contact us today and we will endeavour to help you.
