Time Out says

Lucky old Whitechapel residents. They get the gorgeous Genesis as their local. Not only is it cheap but it’s been beautifully renovated in the past two years by guys who design film sets for a living (try knocking the bricks on the mezzanine level). The result is pretty much a perfect local cinema, where you’ll find proper old East End ladies drinking coffee next to cool kids on laptops in the café. There’s a bar upstairs, and if you want to fill your face, you’re in for a treat. Choose between crodoughs from nearby 100-year-old bakery Rinkoffs, a wall of pick ’n’ mix or the finest bratwursts this side of Würzburg for £4.50. Book seats in the Studio 4 and 5 boutique screening rooms with armchairs, comfy sofas and a bar for those essential mid-movie refreshments.
