Lucky old Whitechapel. They get to have the gorgeous Genesis as their local. Not only is it cheap, but it's also been beautifully renovated in the past two years by guys who design film sets for a living (try knocking the bricks upstairs on the mezzanine level). The end result is pretty much a perfect local cinema, where you’ll find proper old East End ladies drinking coffee next to cool kids on laptops in the café. There’s a bar upstairs, and if you want to fill your face, you’re in for a treat. Choose between crodoughs from nearby 100-year-old bakery Rinkoffs, or the snack bar with a wall of Pick ’n’ Mix or jumbo hotdogs from World’s Wurst (terrible name, brilliant bangers, from £3.90). Book seats in the Studio 5 boutique screening room with armchairs and a cosy bar for a date.
