A Love London winner in 2015 and 2016, the Peckhamplex is south London’s most loved cinema once again. When it was recently threatened with redevelopment, two local advertising creatives even made a fake movie trailer to ‘Save the Plex’. It seems to have done the trick because the Plex lives on to make London moviegoers happy with its rough-and-ready charm and bargain-basement ticket prices. The latest blockbusters show for a mere £4.99 every day of the week, so you can catch 2018 movies at 1998 prices. Throw in community-minded events like #BlackPantherPeckham, which screened the Marvel movie for free for 200 young people, and it’s easy to see why the old favourite is so beloved: it’s got a big heart to go with the big screens.

Peckham Plex shows a broad range of movies from arthouse to blockbuster. They make a big effort to draw in the community eg Black History Month themed flicks in October, talks from actors and directors connected to the neighbourhood, a book-sharing hub in the lobby. Also priced really well.
Love the PeckhamPlex. Where else can you watch new releases for a fiver? And I have grown to love the audience participation too - there's generally clapping at the end of a good movie. Such a gem.
Where else are you going to see a film for a fiver? Takes me straight back to the 80's with the whole vibe of the place and I love it.
I live in Peckham, I moved here back in 2014. Now the first time I went to Peckhamplex cinema to see Transformers Age Of Extinction I got sexually harassed by one of the male ticket workers - a light skinned black young man, he said some lame chat up line which was childish, I just wanted to see the movie, it ruined the entire movie for me. Now, Iv'e been to Peckhamplex many times after that & I have never seen that guy again, all the other ticket workers have been friendly & non-inappropriate, hopefully that guy was fired, I'm thankful that I never had to experience that again & I haven't let that person stop me from going to the cinema. The cinema itself is fantastic, great cheap price & the movie screen, surround sound, e.c.t is excellent.
It’s really part of the community, PeckhamPlex, and that’s what makes it interesting. It has a no-frills attitude but this makes it comfortable and more relaxing than your typical London cinema. Of course the prices help too, but it’s just a good, nice place to be-it has a soul, much like the cinemas of old, which I think is quite uncommon for the flicks these days. They staff are lovely and they keep the adverts really snappy at the beginning of a screening which is a breath of fresh air, to be honest. It’s the best cinema in London, without a doubt.
Nothing can beat the £5 tickets. The Q&A's are definitely worth keeping an eye on - every now and then you get to see some really interesting people discussing films/social issues/local matters.
I love this place! The only cinema we can afford to go big screen as a family, and it has soul! I love the way it feels like the ramshackle, cosmopolitan, rag-tag, relaxed heart of the vivid peckham community.
I always tell my non Peckham based friends with so much pride that OUR cinema charges only a fiver for the ticket! We are very lucky to have it in the neighbourhood
The BEST independant cinema. Fair prices. Good screens and sounds. Varied programming. Did I say independent? 😀
