The Big Screen

A place for our community to showcase and enjoy science, culture, ideas and locally produced content for free

The Big Screen is situated on the outside of our building, facing onto Bristol’s well-loved Millennium Square. It runs from 7am until 11pm, seven days a week.

The screen provides an important city-centre platform for the showcasing of films, videos and live streams by local creatives, communities and school groups. Recently its shown content by Creative Youth Network, Aardman, RIFE and Vanessa Kissule to name but a few.  

We also use the screen to show our own content and as a programming space, bringing some of what goes on inside We The Curious outside for even more people to enjoy. 

The rest of the time we're working hard to bring you an exciting and varied programme of events – from family sing-alongs and feature film screenings, to live streamed theatre shows and major sporting events.

The We The Curious Big Screen is supported by Toshiba in partnership with NEC Display Solutions.
