One of London’s friendliest cinemas, single-screener The Lexi is run mostly by enthusiastic local volunteers, with every penny of profits going to a charity in South Africa. The programme is a mix of everything from recent blockbusters to arthouse and foreign films, plus special events, Q&As and classic movie seasons (a recent run of Francois Truffaut oldies were accompanied by cheese and wine tastings). The chairs are comfy, the sound system is second to none and the bar cosy. The Lexi team is also responsible for the brilliant outdoor cinema Nomad.

A beautiful, stylish and friendly pocket-sized cinema showing great films, with a lovely bar too! Plus all of the profits go to charity so you can even feel good about spending your money – perfection! If you love films and don't live round the corner, you might consider moving.
Great local venue; comfortable cinema with excellent & eclectic programmes for all tastes and ages; lovely cafe and bar; friendly & helpful staff and volunteers; and a really good ethos of helping a great project in South Africa .
So much passion and love goes in to this cinema. It has great films, a well stocked bar, very comfortable seat and brilliant staff. Plus all the profits go to charity!
A very friendly comfortable venue where you can watch the latest films and have a drink at the same time. Made all the more worthwhile as all profits go to charity
Great place to go to the movies, proper seats, great selection of drinks, tables for your bottle of wine, get together with friends and know that you are contributing to a worthy cause and helping change and improve people's lives by just eating your popcorn.. !
Who needs the multiplex when places like The Lexi exist, and it's around the corner from my doorstep! Always a great choice of films, plus they do live screenings of the Met Opera and the National Theatre. Always a friendly and cosy atmosphere, I never go anywhere else. They have a fantastic bar too, with locally sourced beers, from Notting Hill I think. They do fresh popcorn too. Can't recommend this place highly enough!
