The jewel in the Picturehouse crown opened in 1992 and has been screening a mix of mainstream releases and independent films from its handy location beside Clapham Common ever since. Like all Picturehouses it’s a super-popular local cinema with a devoted following who come for the snug, anti-multiplex atmosphere and comfy reclining seats. Take your pick from the gut-expanding array of posh snacks and grab a drink at the bar, which has become a destination in itself – and is perfect for a post-film debrief. Plus you can buy a glass of wine to take into the movie.

    Prepare to feel old: Giuseppe Tornatore’s wistful, honey-glazed ode to nascent cinephile pleasures, already something of a nostalgia piece when it first hit our screens in 1989, is 25 years old. Now, to prepare to feel young again: returning to ci...

  • In this live-action adventure, Mowgli (Scott Lee) is five before he's jungle-bred. The animals act like animals, sort of, which means that Mowgli wrestles with Baloo the bear, tumbles with wolves, but doesn't discuss philosophy with 'em. He swims ...

    Early in Miguel Gomes’s bawdy, brilliant, inadvisably epic new project, there’s a scene in which the director appears on screen in a panic, desperately trying to escape from his crew. Given the scope of the Tabu filmmaker’s latest undertaking, it’...

    A one-time assistant to the director Béla Tarr, 38-year-old Hungarian filmmaker László Nemes has made a staggering feature debut with 'Son of Saul', an Auschwitz-set drama that's numbing, provocative and impossible to unsee. Set over 24 hours in 1...

    Meryl Streep continues her screw-the-Oscars, life-affirming run of movies with this ridiculously watchable comedy, playing filthy rich socialite Florence Foster Jenkins. In the 1930s, the deluded diva sang at private recitals in New York, warbling...

A shining star in the galaxy of central London cinemas. Friendly service, a bar serving hot mulled cider in winter and cold pints in summer, excellent value and choice of films. Become a member for free tickets, discounted admission and 10% off food and drink at the bar.

Wonderful theatre with delicious restaurants right across the street. It's no IMAX but its great to see little independent theatres thriving!

So as a Northern boy from the sticks, it came as quite a shock when I found out that you can actually take alcohol with you into the film. This makes for a much more enjoyable cinematic experience, even if the prices are a little OTT. Friendly staff and plenty of film showings. Would recommend!
