Screen On the Green

The Screen on the Green in Islington is one of the country’s oldest cinemas: it opened in 1913 and has been a single-screen cinema ever since. It was bought by the Everyman chain of luxury cinemas in 2008 and soon after was renamed Everyman Screen on the Green. It offers a mix of standard and premier seats (the latter being ‘luxurious sofas with footrests’), and there’s a bar at the back of the screen. Directors regularly attend the cinema for introductions and Q&As.

It's had the now obligatory boutique makeover but the original charm remains. If anything the addition of comfy sofas, a bars and food add to a night out here (of the luxury for those of us who enjoy a sneaky, solo daytime cinema jaunt).
