Cinemas around London

Electric Cinema

191 Portobello Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 2ED, UK – 020 7908 9696

Really wonderful cinema. Their website is missing some info, it was pretty warm in there and they don't have popcorn... But the beds for the show were super comfy, you don't feel like you're straining your neck. The intro to remind you to shut your phone off was particularly well done. Definitely worth trying it out.

We had a work event at the Cinema which was a superb venue however I then decided to go back as a paying customer to the diner with a few colleague after the event. The service was simply outstanding and I am certain I shall be visting this venue again with my partner and friends. Congratulations to your team and in particular the Diner side for so many things but it's always so refreshing when you are looked after by people who take the hospitality trade as a vocation and career not just a job. Thoroughly recommend this venue for any occasion.

Vue

O2 Centre, 255 Finchley Rd, London NW3 6LU, UK – 0345 308 4620

"VUE" a chain cinema venue. Based in the O2 centre, 5 minutes walk from Finchley Road tube station. 12 screens showing a wide variety of current popular films. They have 2D & 3D options available. Nice wide seats with Dolby surround sound and Sony 4k picture quality. Mini morning event for the children. Clean toilets and air conditioned screens. Ice cream available along with the usual sweets, hot dogs, popcorn & decent coffee. Not cheap in my view so check the website for special offers etc. Well located with many restaurant's available within the complex.

It's really a great movie theater. Food and popcorn are good. Screens are nice. 3D movies are the BEST and there and there are plenty of options for meals after the movie.

Vue

Westfield, Ariel Way, White City, London W12 7GF, UK – 0345 308 4620

One of the best cinemas in London. Fantastic selection of screens with comfy and clean seats, good sound and sharp visuals. The staff are polite and helpful. The Scene Screens are a bit pricey but great for special occasions.

Xtreme screen all the way. Sound good, screen big, friendly staff. If they only would make their prices more affordable.

Theatres for London

Gate Theatre

11 Pembridge Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 3HQ, UK – 020 7229 0706

A lovely little theatre with an incredible line up of eye opening productions. Presenting theatre that makes you think, engage and challenge your ideas / perceptions. Its a tiny space, but with brilliant staff and attention to every detail they've made a beautifully inclusive space that supports inspirational theatre.

Great cosy little theatre for a unique night out. Would highly recommend seeing a play here in support of the grass roots theatre scene.

Bush Theatre

7 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 8LJ, UK – 020 8743 5050

Great surprise, I'd never been before, and the layout, terrace and bar are lovely. There were no restricted views. My only problem was I had booked 10 tickets on the same row and they split our booking into different seating blocks with no forewarning or explanation. Good theatre otherwise, and I'm glad it's now on my radar.

I've edited this review to reflect my 5 star rated appreciation of the wonderful support staff : admin, reception, bar , theatre and community engagement who always make all who enter this comfortable refurbished space extremely welcome, immediately included and can answer any query with a smile. The former library's makeover has made it a fully accessible venue with a wide ramped entrance adjacent to the market leading past outdoor seating and decorative plants. Double spaced sliding doors are easily operated by wheelchair users, less firm of foot and encumbered parents with or without bulky buggies. The reception/bar/cafe and reading areas are clearly signposted as are all the rooms on the upper floors down to safety details and the directions on the disabled lift. You can read inspirational quotes on the wall, see the contributors list for those who've helped fund the eclectic space you're standing in. Though open and spacious it still achieves and retains the cosy feeling of a quiet, relaxing, 'library' space. The walls still reverberate in my imagination with the rustle of pages turning, heads absorbed and transported into other worlds by a myriad of words. Now these heads are either bent in absorbing conversations or gazing intently at performers engaging you in persuasive thought, an exchange of intimacy entirely appropriate to the style and rustic charm of this brick building. I attend a community drama improvisation workshop once a month on a Saturday afternoon, which is thoroughly enjoyable and is attracting a delightful mix of ages and talents from Bush, White City, Askew and surrounding areas. It's a building for its borough, it's community, for the dramatic and visual arts, a beacon in a cultural desert. Yes we have music venues, another theatre and cinemas etc but how many of them engage you in conversations about what you'd like to see. This place doesn't just want your ticket money, it wants and commands your loyalty by virtue of how much it values your contribution to its work. Read the website, learn about their support for new playwrights, expand your mind without breaking your bank balance - drink / food prices very reasonable - soup, sandwiches, pastries cakes (: become a friend of. It's THE FASHIONABLE PLACE TO BE ANY TIME OF THE WEEK.
