The Screen Room is a 21 seat arthouse cinema in the

The combination of a single screen and 21 person capacity have earnt it the title of "the world's smallest cinema",cite news| title = Smallest cinema in the world opens its doors| work = Nottingham Features| publisher = BBC| date = 2002-09-26| url = http://www.bbc.co.uk/nottingham/features/2002/09/smallest_cinema_in_the_world.shtml| accessdate = 2008-02-22] though this has yet to be ratified by
