    Absolutely fantastic local cinema. Great selection of movies and events. Sunday mornings there's a kids club for 18 months+, only £4 per ticket. Well worth a visit. Changing facilities available.

    Supercheap cinema. However quite noisy. One guy was snoring next to me when watching "Martian" :)

    Make sure to see a screening at Studio 5. Worth the extra to sit in cosy armchairs with footrests and a bar.

    Keep an eye on their special events: many Q&A with movie directors and premieres!

    Very cool little venue, with delicious sandwiches and coffee in the lobby

  • Leïla P.

    A nice place with cheaper tickets. I just feel like the decorum makes it look like an old woman trying too hard to look young?

  • J R.

    Great little independent cinema. Very reasonable prices with another screen with sofas and a gourmet dining experience.

    The good kind of hipster spot - it's got half priced Wednesday and a great VIP screen with sofas and blankets. Also inside you'll find a nice bar and a hot dog vendor.

    Best cinema in Easy London. All the latest blockbusters in a classic cinema setting, all at a very reasonable price! Wednesdays are even cheaper with half price tickets. Good snacks & bar too!

    Saw Mad Max. Great cinema with a lovely set up. Big chairs, foot rests, tables and a bar in the theatre. A giant bucket of popcorn and 2 soft drinks cost £9 the popcorn was nice, warm, like beinghome

  • Lidia V.

    Hands down the best cinema I've been to. Spend a bit more money and go to a Studio 5 showing instead of the standard ones.

    Best cinema in East London

    DTM_GD · December 8, 2014
  • Charlotte L.

    £4 tickets on Mon & Wed (not £3.50 any more). Too many adverts and the pick'n'mix is as overpriced as any chain. The upstairs bar is nice.

    Charlotte L · November 24, 2014
  • Holly R.

    Genesis is great. Nice bar upstairs if you want to chill before or after your film. Discount tickets in Wednesday and Monday.

    Holly Robson · November 24, 2014
  • Callum S.

    The Studio 5 screen is amazing. Couches, footstools and a bar at the back. Best way to see a film in the east end.

    Callum Stott · November 23, 2014

    £4 tickets on Wednesday. A steal in London!

  • Xiana V.

    The big auditorium is amazing and it is very cheap for students; if I'm right there was a day (Wednesdays?) when it was at a really low price, I used to go every week!

    Xiana Vázquez · April 6, 2014
  • Dew A.

    An impressive facelift has transformed this formerly dingy establishment into a real gem, with the highlight being Screen 5. Sofas and blankeys to enjoy the latest blockbuster, what's not to like?
