Movies in London Theatres

Heading out to the movies in London theatres? Then you’re in luck. There are plenty of them to choose from, and each one has its own unique charms. Here are five of the best. But these are just the start, so keep reading!

Electric Cinema

This independent cinema is one of the oldest in London, but when you see an advertisement that reads “films, cocktails, delicious food, and cashmere blankets,” age is irrelevant.

The Prince Charles Cinema

Prince Charles Cinema is known for its cult classic and independent film programming, and it often hosts Q&A sessions with directors and actors.

BFI Southbank

The BFI Southbank is part of the British Film Institute, and it features an impressive lineup of both classic and contemporary films. And, this cinema features £3 cinema tickets for 16 to 25-year-olds.

The Odeon Luxe Leicester Square

Odeon is one of the largest cinema chains and most popular movie theatres in London. Some are slightly more appointed and luxurious than others. But the best part of the Odeon Luxe Luxe Square is the “Luxe.” Settle into your fully reclining seat with a tipple from Oscar’s Bar, and it doesn’t get much better!

Curzon Soho

The Curzon Soho is known for its Art House programming along with new releases in an intimate atmosphere. It’s also one of the most affordable theatres in London.

So, if you’re looking for movies in London theatres, we’ve given you a headstart with five, but we have a list of 60+ more below. We’ll keep you busy!
