- This delightful animated feature from the studio behind the Minions movies takes a tired-sounding idea – a comedy set around a talent contest – and turns it into something winning and witty. ‘Sing’ is fast and frenetic, dashing from character to c...Read more

- Here is Jessica Chastain flexing her extraordinary Meryl Streep-like range again and just about keeping this political thriller in the realm of enjoyable. Her character is Elizabeth Sloane, a ruthless Washington DC lobbyist so fierce that when she...Read more
- If just thinking about Michael Fassbender makes you want to strip off all your clothes, ‘Alien: Covenant’ has a cure for that. David the robot, his creepier-than-a-serial-killer android butler, was the breakout star of Ridley Scott’s 2012 ‘Alien’ ...Read more
- Guy Ritchie’s way-over-the-top, frenzied spin on the legend of King Arthur, with a leaden Charlie Hunnam as the streetwise monarch-to-be and a much more fun Jude Law as his preening evil uncle King Vortigern, offers wall-to-wall testosterone, digi...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.
