You need to have a Screening Licence if you want to screen a film in public - even if you aren't charging a ticket price or are doing a children's screening.

You can book the Screening Licence through organsiations such as:

You may also need a Premises Licence (from your local authority) and The Music Licence from PPL PRS Ltd, to cover the soundtrack. These are both annual licenses held by your venue - check if your venue already has them.
