Greenwich Picturehouse

Hydar Dewachi
South East London

Instantly recognisable by its striking glass and brick exterior (which throws buckets of natural light on to the box office and slender upstairs bar), the Greenwich Picturehouse is the number one destination for film lovers in south-east London to watch a movie. There’s everything you'd expect from a Picturehouse cinema here – plump seats, a decent range of drinks and snacks, a programme mixing top-end mainstream releases with artier films – plus a downstairs bar that doubles as a venue for comedy and music gigs. And if you’re feeling peckish, there’s a little Spanish restaurant attached to the foyer.

    Don’t be fooled by the fancy source material: ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ may be adapted from Thomas Hardy’s nineteenth-century novel, but it’s still a movie that opens with Carey Mulligan on a pony as it gallops toward a rainbow. Set in a patch ...

    Given that its original title was ‘La French’, it’s fair to say the makers of this Marseille-set heroin-smuggling thriller aren’t worried about distancing themselves from comparisons with William Friedkin’s 1971 Oscar- winner. And indeed, Cédric J...

    Al Pacino’s done so much capital-A Acting over the last 25 years, it’s odd to see him taking it down a notch, digging deep – often with actual subtlety – into a rich role with hidden depths. Not that his character is exactly a wallflower. In a fun...
