    The interior of the Electric references the cinema's long history with large leather sofas, footstools as well as tables for food and drink. Perfect place for a romantic night out.

    Centre of hipster gravity in a somewhat stuffy part of town

  • Jonathan S.

    One of the best cinemas in London.

    Jonathan Sebire · December 22, 2015
  • Tobias O.

    Very cozy. Get one of the beds in the front!

    Book the back couch if you go with your partner. Cheaper from odeon lounge, far better atmosphere and the only reason to give money for a movie

    One of the most beautiful cinemas I've ever visited. You must go. If you're already here, well done! You've made an excellent choice.

    My favourite cinema ever! Leather armchairs with foot stools and little side tables/lamps. Check out their edible cinema themed viewings with paired food!

    Keep a lookout for Taylor Swift.

    Loved the seats although the sound wasn't quite allright. If you come with your boyfriend and don't have a bed it's kinda hard enjoying the movie together.

    Elke De Pourcq · June 20, 2015
  • Magdalena M.

    Truly unique experience - stuck midway between cinema and theatre - with comfy chairs that will lull you to sleep if the movie's not good enough ;)

    Magdalena Mrázková · June 4, 2015
  • Mickaël A.

    The most romantic cinema i've ever been. Enjoy a platter of delicious food/drinks on the front sofas while watching a great movie! What else?!

    Mickaël Augello · March 30, 2015
  • Bhavuk

    If you want a nice romantic date, this is the place. And book the sofa seats. Good wine. Lay back and watch some great cinema in an eclectic and electric setting.

    Drinks and food is great!

    Perhaps the best cinema I've ever been to. Amazing seats. Good food. Feel free to arrive a bit late to avoid all the commercials before the show.

    Best movie theatre in the whole world. REALLY. The burger is amazing and the bar in the back is the tops. Book online early.

  • Ed G.

    Favourite cinema in London. Comfy armchairs with side table, lamp and footstool; but if it's the two of you, go for one of the beds at the front. Be sure to eat at the diner beforehand.

    Fabulous place! Pick between the front beds, the seats or the sofas at the back. All with a nice blanket and enjoy the bar!

    Best cinema I've been to in London. Tables, footstools, blankets and bar.

  • Laurel B.

    Amazing cinema experience! Check out the diner next door for a pint before the movie, which also has a great atmosphere. Watch for Benedict Cumberbatch as Humphrey Bogart in the 'How to Behave' short.

    Laurel B · December 7, 2013
  • Woolly K.

    Great mugs of tea, wines, cupcakes, old fashioned sweets, popcorn, cheese and fruit selections, sausage rolls, hot dogs, etc. Fantastic... Book yourself a front sofa / bed and lounge in luxury.

  • Kristy A.

    Great place to experience cinematic fun in a unique way! Bit of a French feel to it!

    Kristy Anderson · September 5, 2013

    Book seats from the left to middle, max 3/4-right to avoid distraction from ppl heading to/from bathrooms in the right hand seats.

    The front row is actually sofa beds. Comfortable but not for everyone.

    It's all about Sundays at the Electric Cinema. Check out Portobello Road Market mid-morning, then take in the double bill, kick back in the vast leather chairs and enjoy.
