My favourite cinema in London, hands-down. Tucked-away in a railway arch on a very unassuming street near Loughborough Junction, this place is a cosy haven from the outside world, showing a brilliant selection of films. Don't expect blockbusters, do expect carefully chosen gems. There's also a bar, which is kind of essential in a cinema these days, don't you think? It's an independent, membership cinema, but membership is well worth purchasing and you get to bring guests along for next-to-nothing. And you can order from nearby Firezze Ppizza, which gets delivered to the cinema. Pizza delivery, in a cinema. And a bar. And great films. It's the dream, surely?
