What’s on the electric cinema this winter?

London Electric Cinema

If you’re a fan of the cinema but are finding yourself getting bored with visits to generic venues, a trip to the Electric Cinema in London is sure to be right up your street and will certainly help to mix things up for you.

With two venues in both Portobello and Shoreditch, the Electric Cinema is a true gem in the city and is always full of both locals and tourists, who visit to soak up the one-of-a-kind atmosphere while they enjoy some new releases or old favourites.

London Electric Cinema

Unlike other cinemas where you’ll often find you uncomfortable seats and uninspiring snacks, the Electric Cinema offers visitors a superior experience. The seats are large, comfortable and covered in cashmere blankets and you can sip on cocktails or an ice cold beer while you enjoy the film.

This exceptional cinema experience will be rounded off perfectly with a stay in the Park Grand Kensington London, where you’ll find equally as cosy interiors to get comfortable in.
