Greenwich Picturehouse
Hydar Dewachi

Instantly recognisable by its striking glass and brick exterior (which throws buckets of natural light on to the box office and slender upstairs bar), the Greenwich Picturehouse is the number one destination for film lovers in south-east London to watch a movie. There’s everything you'd expect from a Picturehouse cinema here – plump seats, a decent range of drinks and snacks, a programme mixing top-end mainstream releases with artier films – plus a downstairs bar that doubles as a venue for comedy and music gigs. And if you’re feeling peckish, there’s a little Spanish restaurant attached to the foyer.

    Decadence is both the subject and the style in ‘Oldboy’ director Park Chan-wook’s elegant, intensely romantic adaptation of Sarah Waters’s spicy bestseller ‘Fingersmith’. Shifting the action from Victorian England to pre-war Korea under Japanese r...

    Do people ever really change? Or do we just like to convince ourselves they do? That’s the question at the heart of this compelling but relentlessly downbeat Japanese melodrama. When Yasaka (Tadanobu Asano) arrives at the metal workshop of his old...

    Co-produced by Japan’s legendary Studio Ghibli (makers of ‘Spirited Away’), this elegantly spare and dialogue-free animated film casts a magical spell. Set entirely on a speck of desert island, ‘The Red Turtle’ wrecks you with its luscious hues: t...

    What an unholy mess. Adapted from the prize-winning novel by Sebastian Barry, this generation-hopping tragedy from ‘My Left Foot’ director Jim Sheridan is like a shopping list of Irish period melodrama clichés. Lead character played by Hollywood s...

Once you go Picturehouse, you never go back. In fact, it'll make you wonder how you ever thought that Odeon was a cool place to hang out.

Of all the Picturehouses across London, Greenwich is certainly my favourite. This is a neat, tidy and very welcoming establishment in the heart of maritime Greenwich, and always provides the perfect ending of another day wasted wandering around the antiques market and the Park.

With comfortable seating, good screen sizes and a mature audience who actually turn their phones off (and I don't mean airplane mode, I mean off!), GP genuinely allows you to enjoy the film. Yes, it's a little pricier than other cinemas, but for the cleanliness, comfort and general good feeling, I'd say it's worth it.

This particular Picturehouse also boasts of a lovely café/restaurant on the ground floor, and a great bar on the first. Both offer a good selection of snacks, food, wine and beer, most of which can be taken in to the screens too. Staff are friendly and helpful, and there's even a selection of those cool free postcards you can't help yourself picking up.

I don't think I've ever had a bad experience here. Greenwich is great, and if you've already made the trip out here, you might as well stay and catch a film, be it a random, little-known continental emotional drama or the latest Marvel hit. Whatever you want, I bet they got it.


I love this local cinema! Friendly staff and a good mix of new blockbusters and interesting alternative films. Members also get free tickets and invitations to previews, and cheaper food and drink. Plus mega comfy seats!
