Prince Charles Cinema

Time Out says

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

The legendary Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square is central London’s wild-card cinema. Its two screens offer a fantastic blend of new-ish blockbusters, independent and arthouse titles with horror, sci-fi and teen-flick all-nighters, double bills and short seasons. The basic premise of the cinema is, ‘If they can screen it, they will’. Akira Kurosawa seasons run alongside strands celebrating the performances of Greta Gerwig and Richard Pryor; epic 70mm presentations of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ run take place in one screen while people aca-alonged to ‘Pitch Perfect’ in the other, and if you’ve ever fancied watching every ‘Harry Potter’ films back-to-back in one 22-hour sitting, yep, they do that too.

It’s comfy, cheap and very cheerful, and the programming is as good as it gets. Voted 'best for fun' in Time Out's cinema awards, it’s also Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson’s favourite UK cinema.
