Everyman Hampstead

This is the original cinema of the Everyman chain of luxury cinemas – known as the Everyman long before there was ever a group. The venue’s two screens are decidedly upscale: each with armchairs, sofas (as well as a sprinkling of deluxe two-seater sofas in the larger screen) and staff serving food and drinks at your seat. The programming is a mix of mainstream and independent, so you can expect to see big blockbusters here as well as artier British and international films.

    While 'Finding Dory' is crammed with the kind of visual pleasures we’ve come to expect from Pixar, the story doesn’t always reach the heights of invention upon which the animation giant has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological pr...

    A little orphan girl is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted vegetarian giant and whisked off to an unwelcoming land of over-sized cannibals in Roald Dahl's much-cherished 1982 book 'The BFG'. For this movie version, aimed squarely...

    How much difference is there really between Ricky Gervais and his best-known creation? They’re both loudmouths, upstagers, look-at-me-ers. They’re both convinced of their God given talent. And they do look an awful lot alike. In ‘Life on the Road’...

    After the campy in-flight antics of ‘I’m So Excited’ and the creepy shivers of ‘The Skin I Live In’, Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is back on familiar ground with ‘Julieta’. A sombre, ravishing study of grief, guilt and burden, you could in al...

    Actor-turned-director Brady Corbet wears a whole bunch of literary, historical and cinematic references on his sleeve with this shadowy psychodrama set in France in 1919. Wrapped in an intense and nerve-plucking score by Scott Walker that adds to ...

Nice cinema, but air condition was blasting so much cold air that you have to wear a jumper and jacket in mid August to survive the artic blast for 2 1/2 hours watching Jason Bourne.

You have a sofa for comfort but £16 per ticket is too much. I like to watch a movie and don't need to have loads of drinks and food meanwhile watching a movie.

Friendly and inviting – this is no ordinary cinema. It has couches, legroom and armchairs rather than cheap, uncomfortable airline seats. Not to mention food and drink orders taken from your seat by the lovely, always friendly staff. It all adds up to a homely, welcoming and relaxed place.

It’s a real movie-goers haven which, as well screening all big hollywood blockbusters, also shows the latest foreign language films, classic cinema and special events. Also look out for the Q&As with Industry professionals.

Though there are a lot (really a lot!) of things that I do not like about Hampstead, the Everyman cinema is not one of them. Probably the best one in the Everyman franchise, it has everything and more that anyone might expect from a proper movie theatre. Comfortable plushy seats, cosy space (not too big!), great food, and first and foremost: amazing service (you can actually order drinks without leaving your cushy seats - EAT THAT ODEON). Even their selection of movies is perfect, they show exactly the right mix of Hollywood blockbusters, Indie hits and under the radar documentaries. All in all a great place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I love this place. Decadent, plush, date worthy, quaint.. A great cinema experience!

Be prepared to spend a bit, it's not cheap!

But drinking wine watching a great film or watching Rocky Horror Picture Show dressed up with your friends, it's a great night out! Just waiting for the new Muswell Hill cinema to catch up...

I love this place! Everyman = going to the cinema in style. Super comfy couches to lounge on (or snuggle up if you’re on a date), great service, yummy food choices and best of all, you can enjoy a nice glass of wine / a cocktail whilst you watch. Brilliant movie theatre.

I love the Everyman in Hampstead.  I am not a fan of the mass chains, so if there is a movie I really want to see I am happy to pay the extra and go to the Everyman.  Waiter service to your seat and you can enjoy a class of wine.  It's just the perfect way to watch a movie.

So going to the cinema is stupidly expensive, we all know this. But in comparison Everyman stands up as well worth the money for the experience alone. The Hampstead Everyman (the original and maybe the best?) is nestled just off Hampstead High Street, very conveniently surrounded by lovely pubs and gets the balance just right between art house and crowd pleaser. It manages to be both opulent and cosy, and anywhere where they bring you food and drink in your seat gets my vote. The menu’s a nice mix, slightly on the pricy side, but it makes it an evening out rather than just sitting in the dark with strangers. And whatever you see, a bottle of wine on a shared sofa will always make it enjoyable.
