87 Notting Hill Gate, Kensington, London W11 3JZ, UK – 0871 902 5731
One of my favourite cinemas in London. Friendly staff, easy booking, good seats with drink tables in the rear half of the cinema. Avoid the seats next to toilets on the right if you can (Rows D-F seats 1-2). Proper bar serving decent drinks and salted popcorn, none of that sweet stuff :) single screen in room with plenty of character. They usually have more interesting films than your multiplex with Hollywood nonsense.
This is the ONLY cinema I will go to! Super-comfortable - no freezing air con - no deafening high volume - civilised seating with side tables for your (discounted for members) drinks - and all of this wonderfulness for under half the price of a trip to an aseptic multi screen!

One of the best cinemas in London. Fantastic selection of screens with comfy and clean seats, good sound and sharp visuals. The staff are polite and helpful. The Scene Screens are a bit pricey but great for special occasions.
Xtreme screen all the way. Sound good, screen big, friendly staff. If they only would make their prices more affordable.

The cinema is ok but for London we thought the screens were small. Not sure if all the screens are as small as screen 1 but if they are then it let’s the cinema down. Snack selection is decent, cinema was clean and staff friendly.
Oh how I wish to give this place a 5 star since it’s my local and most frequented cinema but somehow the place still manages to look a bit dated even after extensive renovations, not to mention the popcorn prices for which there is always an unbearable queue.

Nice vintage kinda place. Like a heaven in this hot weather. Cool staff, reasonable price and out door seating. Didn’t try their theatre downstairs but heard it nice to try.
High standard of acting in well regarded fringe theatre. Poor access and officious unfriendly staff don't improve the experience. The pub below for refreshments is going through another disaster.....

A lovely little theatre with an incredible line up of eye opening productions. Presenting theatre that makes you think, engage and challenge your ideas / perceptions. Its a tiny space, but with brilliant staff and attention to every detail they've made a beautifully inclusive space that supports inspirational theatre.
Great cosy little theatre for a unique night out. Would highly recommend seeing a play here in support of the grass roots theatre scene.

Great surprise, I'd never been before, and the layout, terrace and bar are lovely. There were no restricted views. My only problem was I had booked 10 tickets on the same row and they split our booking into different seating blocks with no forewarning or explanation. Good theatre otherwise, and I'm glad it's now on my radar.
I've edited this review to reflect my 5 star rated appreciation of the wonderful support staff : admin, reception, bar , theatre and community engagement who always make all who enter this comfortable refurbished space extremely welcome, immediately included and can answer any query with a smile. The former library's makeover has made it a fully accessible venue with a wide ramped entrance adjacent to the market leading past outdoor seating and decorative plants. Double spaced sliding doors are easily operated by wheelchair users, less firm of foot and encumbered parents with or without bulky buggies. The reception/bar/cafe and reading areas are clearly signposted as are all the rooms on the upper floors down to safety details and the directions on the disabled lift. You can read inspirational quotes on the wall, see the contributors list for those who've helped fund the eclectic space you're standing in. Though open and spacious it still achieves and retains the cosy feeling of a quiet, relaxing, 'library' space. The walls still reverberate in my imagination with the rustle of pages turning, heads absorbed and transported into other worlds by a myriad of words. Now these heads are either bent in absorbing conversations or gazing intently at performers engaging you in persuasive thought, an exchange of intimacy entirely appropriate to the style and rustic charm of this brick building. I attend a community drama improvisation workshop once a month on a Saturday afternoon, which is thoroughly enjoyable and is attracting a delightful mix of ages and talents from Bush, White City, Askew and surrounding areas. It's a building for its borough, it's community, for the dramatic and visual arts, a beacon in a cultural desert. Yes we have music venues, another theatre and cinemas etc but how many of them engage you in conversations about what you'd like to see. This place doesn't just want your ticket money, it wants and commands your loyalty by virtue of how much it values your contribution to its work. Read the website, learn about their support for new playwrights, expand your mind without breaking your bank balance - drink / food prices very reasonable - soup, sandwiches, pastries cakes (: become a friend of. It's THE FASHIONABLE PLACE TO BE ANY TIME OF THE WEEK.
