- While one can't deny the technical bravura of this remake of J Lee Thompson's 1961 thriller, it's hard not to feel that Scorsese is selling himself short. Max Cady (De Niro) - the manic, bible-quoting rapist who sets out to wreak sadistic revenge ...Read more
- It’s like a Pavlovian reaction. I know it’s coming but I can do nothing about it. The strings swell for the introduction to ‘Over the Rainbow’ and already I’m wavering. Judy Garland gets a few lines into the song and I’m emotional wreckage. Ever...Read more
- If you grew up in the ’80s you’ll remember reruns of ‘Dad’s Army’ during that soul-sapping stretch of Sunday evening telly somewhere between ‘Songs of Praise’ and ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. Now – why oh why? – someone has decided that what we real...Read more
- 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 ...Read more
- At the start of 'Elle', the final credit to appear in the darkness (over the sounds of fucking) tells us that we’re about to watch a Paul Verhoeven film. Really? Call it a delicious redundancy. 'Elle' might just be the most Verhoeveny film yet, du...Read more
- A slow-burn, low-key indie drama made up of three tales linked by geography and the inner lives of its female characters, ‘Certain Women’ feels almost like a summary of writer-director Kelly Reichardt’s films so far. Another intimate, intensely fe...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.
