Private Screenings

Want the red carpet experience? Then a private screening of the latest blockbuster is just what you need! Crafty Arty Parties prestigious private screenings are a fantastic way of screening a film – be it the latest children’s block buster or classic family favourite.

Perfect for adults and children alike, our private screening services offer fantastic pre-show entertainment, props and theming provided by our sister company Prop Dead Gorgeous, venue sourcing – whether that be a private or commercial screen – catering to brands and gifts and are of course, great value for money!
