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.

    Audrey Hepburn sparkles (when didn’t she?) in this 1957 musical from ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ director Stanley Donen, but two things keep the film from dazzling as brightly as ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and ‘Roman Holiday’. Firstly, this is a Cinderell...

    No, ‘Trolls’ is not a movie about the haters with terrible spelling who threaten people on the Internet. This musical kids’ animation is based on the plastic dolls with frizzy hair that were big in the ’90s. And against the odds, it’s funny and sn...

    The young writer-director Damien Chazelle has followed his Oscar-winning drama 'Whiplash' with another entirely novel film steeped in the world of music. His soaring, romantic, extremely stylish and endlessly inventive 'La La Land' is that rare be...

    Sure, it’s a rush – but is that enough? ‘Goodfellas’ is often heralded as Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece, and there’s no ignoring the full-throttle intensity and bravura visual style that underpin the real-life tale of small-time gangster Henry Hil...

    That’s Manchester, Massachusetts, a small fishing community that’s the setting for this devastating tale of buried trauma from American director and playwright Kenneth Lonergan (‘You Can Count on Me’). Casey Affleck gives a complex, brooding centr...

    This delightful animated feature from the studio behind the Minions movies takes a tired-sounding idea – a comedy set around a talent contest – and turns it into something winning and witty. ‘Sing’ is fast and frenetic, dashing from character to c...

    Embarrassing dads don't come much more meaningful (or embarrassing) than the one in this German comedy. Running at nearly three hours, writer-director Maren Ade gives us a young workaholic professional German woman, Inès (Sandra Hüller), who’s on ...

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!
