The Electric must be one of the plusher cinemas in London. Huge comfortable arm chairs, masses of legroom and space to put food and drink, great decor with double sofas at the back and double beds at the front

Really love this place. It's pricey, but I don't go to the cinema often so I don't mind splashing out now and then. Love the bar at the back, and the seats are really comfortable. Would recommend.

You're wiser to book online, we had to book a couple of weeks in advance, it's quite popular! I'm sure you could phone & book too, they had a tiny booking office on arrival. Enjoy 😊
