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.

    Amid all the shifting mirrored surfaces and hazy ambiguities of Olivier Assayas's bewitching, brazenly unconventional ghost story, this much can be said with certainty: Kristen Stewart has become one hell of an actress. The former 'Twilight' star ...

    At the start of 'Elle', the final credit to appear in the darkness (over the sounds of fucking) tells us that we’re about to watch a Paul Verhoeven film. Really? Call it a delicious redundancy. 'Elle' might just be the most Verhoeveny film yet, du...

    His Arnie-starring 2013 Hollywood debut ‘The Last Stand’ was a bit of a misfire, so Korean action master Kim Jee-woon (‘I Saw the Devil’) has returned both to his home turf and to his favourite subject: morally compromised men shooting at each oth...

    The first miracle of Barry Jenkins’s exquisite coming-of-age drama ‘Moonlight’ – and this heartbreaker of a film is filled with miracles – happens around a kitchen table. We’ve already seen quiet, sullen Chiron (Alex Hibbert), a 10-year-old with f...

    A slow-burn, low-key indie drama made up of three tales linked by geography and the inner lives of its female characters, ‘Certain Women’ feels almost like a summary of writer-director Kelly Reichardt’s films so far. Another intimate, intensely fe...

    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!
