  • A bit of treat to see a film here. Great seats and a lovely feel of cinema as it should be. Decadent feel about the place. Good to be able to get something quick in the cafe or spend longer in the restaurant. Modern setting. Rather nice and a change from the regular chains.
  • Beautiful cinema with a fabulous cafe, the members lounge upstairs is one of the hidden secrets of London with views of Eros and a terrace on top of the building with fantastic views of Big Ben (although currently covered with scaffolding). The cinema has reclining seats and a excellent sound system and the film's are good mix of crowd pleasers and art house. One of the best cinemas in London and worth the membership.
