Very good cinema for picking up the things that my local Cineworld doesn't show! Be aware though that screens 5, 6, and 7 are small. The others are much bigger and show a variety of art-house repertory films (they show a lot more than 7 titles in a day) and a few mainstream movies as well.
Tip: if you've got a Cineworld unlimited card then entrance is £5 for most showings.

Not expensive for where it is. Very well designed not least the process that leads you from street . The layout and comfort of bar, cafe, booking etc. Being able to take your pint through and watch the film from a recliner or sat on a sofa. Well selected art house films.

This is a great cinema. Definitely better than the chain cinemas. Mondays they offer a great price deal and seating is super comfy! You can even buy a sofa chair for two.

This does not have the community feel that the Picturehouse in Crouch End does, perhaps that is to be expected because of its location. But this is the one place that we scored tickets for Phantom Thread on a Saturday evening, Interestingly, there were few seat choices available online even though the small theatre did not really fill up.
The seats were really comfortable but my biggest gripe was the sticker price -- it cost over 17 pound (including the online booking fee) to see a film in a multiplex with no extras.

This cinema is perfect to while away a few hours with its cafe downstairs and the bar upstairs. They serve food although we didn’t eat here. Despite manic streets outside full of tourists and visitors to London, the cinema didn’t feel too busy and we managed to get a seat in the bar upstairs. We ordered coffee and there was some confusion over whether they had soya milk (they couldn’t find it!). We also ordered soft drinks which were disappointingly served with plastic single use straws. I’m pretty sure most places are phasing these out now - you can’t fail to see the campaigns about plastic straws now - so for a trendy venue like this cinema I was surprised to be given one. Nobody really wants straws anyway surely!!?
In the cinema screening room itself we got a sofa to share that was mega comfy - highly recommend watching a film here.
