Convenient location for me, interesting offerings. When in London, I stay less than half a mile from here. The movie they showed is also in some larger theaters, which might be why It was full - they actually turned several couples away ahead of me, but since I was alone I snagged the last ticket. I don't know if the theatre routinely sells out, but it did tonight. You can buy tickets online...more

We went here yesterday because a friend's short-film was being screened at the London Independent Film Festival. The venue is quite small but nice.

I love a good trip to the pictures, yes I did call it pictures, and no I'm not 70 years old, that's just what I call it! As far as independent cinemas go you can't get more independent than this.

So what's so great about this place?...more
