In contrast to other large multiplex-cinemas in Leicester Square, this is a little gem of a theater tucked away around the corner of the busy square, which shows cult classics and modern movies at reasonable prices.

It's many years since I was last in this cinema. Nothing much had changed when we visited last Saturday . It is charmingly scruffy. Downstairs is a small bar with a helpful , well informed barman who takes pleasure in finding what his customers want...More

Fun night out. The "hostess" Candy Floss was hilarious and pitched the introduction to the evening perfectly. My only comment is that there are minimal facilities so if you need to use the washroom then get in before the show finishes, otherwise you'll have a...More

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!

This year I managed to get to this special cinema finally for the first time. I went to the all night long Lord of the Rings marathon with my mum. The likeminded fans and I all queued up outside, buzzing with excitement. Extended editions, 8pm...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

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,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –

enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

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
