These days it's impossible to imagine Hackney without this four-screen branch of the Picturehouse chain, opened in 2011. The buzzy ground-floor bar/café serves good burgers, and bang-on programming mixes top-of-the-range mainstream with artier films – for the former, book Screen 1, with its beast of a screen, big sound and steep incline for uninterrupted viewing. On the top floor, the Hackney Attic is home to music quizzes, open-mic nights and other live events.
