    Prepare to feel old: Giuseppe Tornatore’s wistful, honey-glazed ode to nascent cinephile pleasures, already something of a nostalgia piece when it first hit our screens in 1989, is 25 years old. Now, to prepare to feel young again: returning to ci...

    To misquote Forrest Gump’s mother, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is like a box of chocolates. Or rather, it’s like a vast, family-sized festive crate of chocolates, all wrapped in the shiniest packaging, all exploding with sweetness and surprises. May...

    The fourth instalment of George Miller’s punky post-apocalyptic ‘Mad Max’ saga feels like a tornado tearing through a tea party. In an age of weightless movie spectacles, here’s a movie that feels like it was made by kidnapping $150 million of stu...

    ‘Humanity is our virtue,’ says a character in ‘Ghost in the Shell’ — but you don’t get that feeling from the film, which is a slick, overly-digitised piece of weightless future schlock. It’s a remake of a 1995 Japanese anime, which itself was main...

    Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin: the triple-whammy veteran cast that heads up this light-hearted Brooklyn-set heist caper (a remake of a largely forgotten 1979 movie starring George Burns) is just about distracting and charming enough to...

    The virtue of courage is high up on the list of Disney princess must-haves (just below kindness, beauty and a strapping prince in tight trousers). And three cheers for director Bill Condon and star Emma Watson for having the courage to make a live...

    Decadence is both the subject and the style in ‘Oldboy’ director Park Chan-wook’s elegant, intensely romantic adaptation of Sarah Waters’s spicy bestseller ‘Fingersmith’. Shifting the action from Victorian England to pre-war Korea under Japanese r...

    Jessica Chastain has long harboured an inner Meryl Streep: you can see that defiance, mixed in with a glossy, almost remote delicateness, in movies ranging from ‘Take Shelter’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ to her coiled turn in ‘A Most Violent Year’ (a d...

    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...

The Man on the Street

Just got home from the Time Out Card screening here this evening. At first it all feels a bit sterile . Its a cinema in a concrete shopping centre. However, I found the staff to be friendly and the screening room to really comfortable. I resisted the concessions and grabbed a bite at ITSU after the film. Great value. Rounded off an excellent evening. I would not hesitate to return or to recommend this cinema.

Islington has a lot going for it in terms of pubs and restaurants and this compliments it all! The vue cinema is spacious, has lots of screenings of many diverse films (even some NT recordings) and I’ve always found it to be clean too. They have special discount days too which is very handy on a tight month and is close to a sainsbury’s, waitrose and M&S should you not want to spend a fortune on popcorn.

For one of the chain cinemas, this Vue does the job well! The Islington branch is incredibly central yet acts as a bit of an oasis to all of the shops and noise around. The staff seem very friendly and there's lots of toilets, which is always a good thing! Also one time an anonymous staff member gave us extra nacho cheese which was a game-changer!

I came in a perfect mood ready to watch a good movie and the black lady working behind the counter had such a attitude it just ruined everything so I went to find the manager and he could care less! Been coming here for years sadly I don't want to come anymore with this kind of customer service.
