    Superheroes save the world on a regular basis, but their movies aren’t nearly as courageous: For every ingenious ‘Black Panther’ that departs from the billion-dollar formula, you get ten timid time-wasters. ‘Captain Marvel’, the Marvel Cinematic U...

    ‘The Hustle’ takes a perfectly fine premise from ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ – two predatory men get played by a savvier woman – and obliterates it by swapping genders and ultimately selling out its feminist credibility. Initially, the thrust of thi...

    ‘Pet Sematary’ is exactly the kind of horror movie that is ripe for remaking. The 1989 version of Stephen King’s creepy novel is fairly well remembered, but it’s far from a classic, not even the cult kind. You can reinvent it without really annoyi...

    Taking the old-fashioned highs of an MGM musical and pairing them with the deep lows of an addiction drama, ‘Rocketman’ is a turbo-charged rock fantasia that pushes hard against the boundaries of the medium as it zips through the first four decade...

    Review by Joshua Rothkopf If you’re looking for the scariest horror movies of recent years, they’ve been lurking in the shadows: ‘Hereditary’, ‘The Babadook’, ‘The Witch’, ‘The Eyes of My Mother’ and the arrestingly weird ‘Suspiria’ are all the p...

    The Tolkien estate has pre-emptively ‘disavowed’ this biopic of fantasy great JRR Tolkien – a fancy way of letting the world know that it was made without any official help and basically boo-sucks to the filmmakers. There’ll be few regrets when it...

    Strip away its poppy Viking folklore and state-of-the-art animation and the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ franchise has always boiled down satisfyingly to a simple riff on a ‘Black Stallion’-like tale of a boy and his scaly pal. So the prospect of Be...

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.
