I almost don’t want to write this review, because I want to keep Genesis all to myself. We went to Studio 5 to see Star Wars and both agreed it’s going to become our second home. Deep, comfy sofas, foot rests, blankets and tables for your wine - it’s all you’d expect from the likes of Everyman and Electric, but for a fraction of the price. Go! (don’t go).


Genesis cinema is great! Especially Screen 5 which has been refurbished with armchairs and its own bar is super comfortable and feels just like home - except for the big screen. 

The whole area has changed so much in the last couple of years so there are some lovely places to go for a drink or dinner before as well.

One of the best kept secrets of East London. In between Stepney Green & Whitechapel tube stations this independent cinema shows the latest indie & commercial films in its 5 screens. Recently refurbished it now has a great café & a new cocktail bar, Bar Paragon upstairs. Went to a screening of Sunshine on Leith here followed by a Q&A with the director Dexter Fletcher who is a friend of the owner apparently. Also seen Danny Boyle here watching movies. I think they have poetry nights too, well worth a visit.
