    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...

  • Originally intended for TV, Mulholland Dr. is much in the mould of Twin Peaks and Lost Highway. Lynch's characteristically bizarre noir focuses (probably too strong a word!) on a young beauty (Harring) who loses her memory after a car accident and...

    Overblown in almost every respect (not only its giant ape), 'Kong: Skull Island' is the kind of Hollywood fever dream that, in its first few minutes alone, throws at you a WWII bomber crash, a sizzling montage of Cold War nuclear escalation and a ...

    ‘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...

    “It’s morphin’ time!” fans will yell, as waves of light explode, color-coded armor creeps onto bodies, and tears of recognition are wiped away. Rarely has a franchise dominated childhoods as thoroughly as the ’90s-era live-action 'Mighty Morphin P...

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.
