Formerly the Aubin, this snug little cinema is now part of the Soho House group (which also owns the gorgeous Electric Portobello). Everything about the Electric Shoreditch exudes luxury, from the leather armchairs and footstools to the cashmere blankets and chic little tables to hold your drinks. We recommend seats in the middle of rows B and C for the best views. And if you’re in need of a manicure or a haircut, this is the perfect venue: it's in the basement of Barber & Parlour, a three-storey preening paradise that opened in October, 2014. On the first floor you can get a mani or up-do at the Cheeky Parlour. On the ground floor, alongside a café selling flat whites, you’ll find barbers Neville.

      ‘Zoolander’ fans can breathe a flamboyant sigh of relief: 15 years on, this sequel to the fashion-world satire is as funny, silly and lovingly teasing as anyone could have hoped. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return as dopey male models Derek Zoolan...

    For the same price of going to a multiplex cinema you could instead come here. A perfectly formed cinema; small and intimate and heavenly comfortable. Wide armchairs, a drinks table and a divine cashmere blanket all accompanied by a glass of wine (or whatever drink floats your boat). Showing a great array of blockbusters and smaller independent films. My only gripe - they need to work on their snack offering, there really isn't enough on offer (only one chocolate bar - heaven forbid!).
