The Electric in Notting Hill is one of London’s oldest cinemas and definitely the most romantic. Owned by the Soho House group, it’s been beautifully restored, with luxurious leather armchairs, footstools, lush cashmere blankets and waiter service delivering cocktails to your chair. What makes the Electric date-perfect is that seats on the front-row have been ripped out and replaced with six luxurious, velvet-lined double beds – ideal smooching. And best of all, it’s on Portobello Road, so you leave feeling like you’re in a Richard Curtis movie.

One of the best cinemas in London. Great for a romantic evening or if you fancy spoiling yourself. It is a sophisticated setting but in a relaxed way.
Love, love, love the Electric Cinema. Settle into a comfortable armchair with a glass of wine to watch a film. What's not to like? Blankets available if it gets cold and a good selection of food and drink
Much more than a movie theater - it's an experience and a reason to go out to watch a movie in a wonderful setting, great drinks and amazing seating..way better than your own couch at home
