What our clients say
Other services for our armed forces
In addition to our media, entertainment and communications services, we remain committed to offering our forces other award-winning services, including live military events, which we produce and deliver worldwide.
Originating from the Second World War to help raise the morale of the UK armed forces in the UK and overseas, our BFBS Cinemas also continue to entertain the UK armed forces, their families and friends.
And the Movie Machine, a unique mobile cinema that BFBS runs in partnership with Sky Cinema, is available to the armed forces and their families for special movie screenings and events.
Beyond that our Cinelink service takes the cinema experience to forces, even in remote locations.
