Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

On the corner of Shaftesbury Avenue, this central London outpost from the Picturehouse cinema group is an absolute gem. Opened in the summer of 2015, Picturehouse Central sits on the site of the old Cineworld in Piccadilly's Trocadero centre. Having had a stunning revamp, it's the perfect antidote to Piccadilly Circus's rage-inducing pavements. 

Inside, a hundred hanging lightbulbs lead you up a grand terracotta-tiled grand staircase, past a mural by US artists Patrick Vale and Paul Davis inspired by a century of cinema. Up a level, you'll find the box office and the bar, before the cinema's seven plush screens. Another climb up a level will take you to the gallery space and a members-only bar with a roof terrace that looks out over the busy streets of central London.

Picturehouse Central says
London's most stylish new cinema, inside the Trocadero. Seven screens playing a mix of quality mainstream, indie, foreign language and documentaries. Plus a ground floor cafe, first floor bar-restaurant and a newly opened members' bar across two floors with a roof terrace revealing stunning views.
