The Tricycle Cinema is housed in the same building as the Tricycle Theatre – famous for edgy plays and live art pieces tackling here-and-now issues. The programme in the cinema is a little less confrontational, screening a mix of upmarket new releases, arthouse titles, docs and filmed theatre. The 300-seat cinema is comfy and make sure you grab a drink in the bar after your film – it's one of the classiest in the city.

Venue name: Tricycle Cinema

    With 'Carol', the American director Todd Haynes returns us to a place similar to the repressed 1950s East Coast universe that he explored in his 2002 film 'Far from Heaven'. It's historically not long past but this is an emotionally oh-so-distant ...

Great choice of plays.loads of good movies.decent bar.but the place is always cold.I have caught a chill which led to a really nasty flu sitting in the main room because there is no heating in that room at all.same thing in the bar area.The entrance doors do not close automatically so anyone sitting on the sofas in the main passage area is subject to a constant draft. The venue also used to host regular art exhibitions. Sadly this does not happen any more.Since the new artistic director has come in the art exhibitions have gone out of the window.

For some unknown reason, nobody goes here anymore. OK, not nobody, but far less than you'd expect, including on opening nights for brand new releases. Out of ten trips in the past two years, the busiest it has ever been was either for the debut screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel or the live stream of Monty Python's O2 final stage performance. The cinema was still only half full.

Maybe people have simply forgotten about the Tricycle's little underground screen. On the plus side, this mass amnesia among the cultured public means that a seat is pretty much guaranteed. No feverish telephone call to the box office five hours beforehand begging them to hold onto to the last seats so that the group of three can all sit alone, four rows away from each other, just to see Paul Thomas Anderson's latest movie on the day it comes out, as inevitably occurs with the Everyman or Curzon, and indeed all other independent picture houses in Greater London.
