Excellent cinema, wonderful sitting, so comfortable, so cozy and the design is vintage and unique. A lovely alternative to the usual cinema nowadays. If I could choose, I wouldn't go to a different one.

We enjoyed the seating and atmosphere (although the movie we saw was less than average). The experience of the chairs, refreshment and atmosphere made up for the film.

We spent over £100 on a trip to the cinema, so expected good things. Food & drink was very expensive and food was pretty awful - I would advise eat somewhere else before or after, you're in portobello road so lots of choice! The food...More
