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 fun, quirky and local place to catch movies at a reasonable price... The movies vary from artsy independents to brand new blockbusters. If you think you will go often, they do an annual membership which includes a few free tickets as well and a discount on the food and drinks – a great deal! The screen and sound quality aren’t as good as a huge multiplex of course, so I wouldn’t see the latest James Bond film here… but for the occasional rom-com or indie flick, this is our favourite place to go! And the snacks are good!

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!
