This was one of the oddest cinema experiences... but it was awesome. I bought tickets for my friend's birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. The seats aren't the most comfortable, but the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff more than make up for it -...More

Spent the evening watching Lord of the Rings. Really pleasant screen and the seats were comfy enough to sit in for 12 hours without issues. Well be back again in the future!

I'm not a big cinema fan (usually would rather just wait for a movie to come on tv or buy the dvd and enjoy it at home) but the PCC is just awesome ! I usually go there for their special events (such as Alien...More

My fave cinema in London. A great selection of older and cult films. Have seen some of my absolute favourite films here. Cheap concessions and bar.

Easy to find, right off of Leicester Square. This is the best cinema in London. 2 screens, showing both recent films and classic films. Watch out for theme, director and actor cycles of films, as well as double screenings. The bar is cheap but good...More

Went to the Sound of Music singalong. Staff were friendly and efficient but the rest of the day went downhill from there. The seats have such high backs and are angled on a backward tilt it's hard to see the screen. The host of this...More

What a find. A characterful friendly cinema in the centre of London. I'd gone to heaven. Sweet little bar before going into the screening in the basement cinema. Great entertainment too at a very good price.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

A question about the seating, where is best place to sit? It looks like the ceiling is low so if you sit at the back that might be a problem? And the seats look high so would there be people's heads in the way in front? Especially for a shorter person?

Response from Anna M | Reviewed this property |
ah. Seat choices are always tricky. The cinema is unusual in its design and only seats 2 and 8 in row X have a view. The rest face away from the screen or out onto the street. I estimate that if a basketball team were to... More
