The Picturehouse has only been open since 2011, but already it’s impossible to remember Hackney without its four-screen cinema. Downstairs, on the ground floor the bar/café (we recommend the burgers) is always buzzing. The programming is a bang-on mix of top-of-the-range mainstream and artier films – and if you’re after blockbuster bangs, make sure you book for screen one, with its beast of a screen, big sound and steep incline for uninterrupted viewing. On the top floor is the Hackney Attic venue, home to music quizzes, open-mic nights and all manner of live events.

I love Picturehouse in general for the great content they show but the venue is lovely here, the food is good and the staff are very friendly.
HPH is practically my second home! Good range of films on offer from arthouse to big budget blockbusters. Staff are friendly and the range of food and drink is really good.
My favourite cinema in London. Plus it has the wonderful Hackney Attic upstairs showing great events. Oh and it does bloomin' lovely pizzas too! :-)
Went to an Odeon recently and remembered why we don't go any more! This is our local.. Lovely seats, great films, absence of rustling food wrappers , chatting and chomping of popcorn.
