Hackney Picturehouse

The Picturehouse has only been open since 2011, but already it’s impossible to remember Hackney without its four-screen cinema. Downstairs, on the ground floor the bar/café (we recommend the burgers) is always buzzing. The programming is a bang-on mix of top-of-the-range mainstream and artier films – and if you’re after blockbuster bangs, make sure you book for screen one, with its beast of a screen, big sound and steep incline for uninterrupted viewing. On the top floor is the Hackney Attic venue, home to music quizzes, open-mic nights and all manner of live events.

    In the opening frames of this murky megabudget monster mash, the famous Universal logo – a twinkling globe – revolves and dims, revealing the words ‘DARK UNIVERSE’ in glowering block capitals. We’re not messing about, the new emblem screams. This ...

    Music sounds better when you’re on the road. In ‘Baby Driver’, ‘Shaun of the Dead’ director Edgar Wright takes the car-chase action film – loaded with tyre squeals – and weds it to a cracking jukebox playlist. The result is the most supercharged p...

    Before seeing ‘Wonder Woman’, I got a sinking feeling. It’s been more than a decade since a woman headlining a superhero film saved the world. I had visions of middle-aged male studio execs huddled together in a conference room Googling feminism a...

    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...
