– Should your chosen location cancel your booking, no refund will be given by us. Please contact us if this happens and we may be able to assist in finding a new location.
– Refunds are not available if we arrive to set up and the location is unsuitable – for example, not enough space, not level, not clear etc.

– The cinema is not suitable for use in adverse weather. This includes wind and rain. Please see the cancellation policy above in regards to this.

– Before you confirm your cinema hire, please ensure you have enough space to comfortably fit the equipment:

– The standard screen is 3 metres long and 2.5 metres high. It can be slightly height-adjusted to fit under a roof if required. This screen comes on a metal frame.
– The large screen is 6 metres long and 4 metres high. It cannot be height-adjusted. This screen is inflatable and required power to keep it inflated.
– In addition, extra space is required on either space of the screens to tie ropes.
– Around 5 – 6 metres of space is required between the projector and the screen in order to have a large picture that fills the screen.

– You are responsible for ensuring the equipment fits in the space and no refunds will be provided if we cannot set up on arrival due to space constraints.

– Please ensure the area is clear and clean, free of lawn furniture, toys, animal droppings etc, with the space requirements as outlined above. We are unable to assist you with this on arrival.
– The screen can only be used after dark. A picture will not be visible during daylight hours.

What Our Customers are Saying

My Slumber Party created a fantastic party for my son's 10th birthday. He chose the Army theme and it just looked fantastic! It was delivered, set up and picked up efficiently and all the kids loved it.

My daughter and her friends can't stop talking about their unicorn sleepover party. The best part was that My Slumber Party set it all up and packed it all down in no time and I didn't have to lift a finger!

Thank you for the amazing and beautiful bohemian dream catcher theme. It was beautiful. We really appreciate the effort you went to, to deliver an amazing custom creation. Such a warm and friendly person, a pleasure to meet. I would highly recommend My Slumber Party in the future.
