- Audrey Hepburn sparkles (when didn’t she?) in this 1957 musical from ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ director Stanley Donen, but two things keep the film from dazzling as brightly as ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and ‘Roman Holiday’. Firstly, this is a Cinderell...Read more
- ‘Fifty Shades Darker’. The clue is in the title. The second ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film is aiming for the shadows. It wants to be a thriller, where the erotic risk of Christian Grey’s sex dungeon is upstaged by actual danger (of the non S&M variet...Read more
- The young writer-director Damien Chazelle has followed his Oscar-winning drama 'Whiplash' with another entirely novel film steeped in the world of music. His soaring, romantic, extremely stylish and endlessly inventive 'La La Land' is that rare be...Read more
- This follow-up to Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ brings back most of the same team (though Burton has stepped back to be a producer), and the same high-energy and bucketful of 3D digital effects approach. Mia Wasikowska returns as the emi...Read more
- Sure, it’s a rush – but is that enough? ‘Goodfellas’ is often heralded as Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece, and there’s no ignoring the full-throttle intensity and bravura visual style that underpin the real-life tale of small-time gangster Henry Hil...Read more

Been here a few years ago and had a great experience. Seems like something has changed since then. It was very dirty (food everywhere), chairs were extremely stained (took me 20 mins to find a seat), toilets were awful. However, there was a positive - the manager explained that the seats were last cleaned a month ago and that he would look into and feedback all the issues I complained about. He also issued a refund, as I left half way through the film.
Proof that cinema doesn't have to break the bank. Friendly cinema which does lots to include the community.
Brilliant local cinema, fabulous staff who always make you welcome, good access for disabled, excellent programming. Drink in the comfy bar - or head over to the Theatre Royal Stratford East for a drink and Caribbean food . Easy transport to links - near the bus and rail stations.
