Just moved here from Leeds, where we used to go to Hyde Park picture house once or twice a week, I'm hoping to find a similar independent cinema here that won't break the bank!!

I live in Lewisham but I'd take central because its not hard to get to.

I think the nearest one to me is in Greenwich but I imagine that can only be very expensive.

afraid I'm not familiar with that bit of London and central london is certainly the most expensive part for the cinema! However this has a list of some of them by area http://www.independentcinemaoffice.o...cinemas/london My experience though is that the independent ones tend to be more expensive than the mainstream unless you become a member, its easier to go to normal ones and use Orange Wed or if you become a Vue member (at no cost) you can get discounts on Tuesdays

Ooooo I know loads. The Screen on the Green is a really nice one, in Islington. Also the Screen on the Hill in Belsize park, but that's pricier.


Depends where you're based in London to be honest


Edit: Ah just seen, Lewisham. Deptford Film Club maybe? Depends what you're looking to see. I saw Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas there once upon a time :moon:

Deptford film club sounds awesome, will definiteley have to keep my eye out for that!

Any films that aren't blockbusters mainly. We used to go and see nearly every film that was screened at our local cinema. I love small British films in particular but will watch pretty much anything. I think the only two films I didn't enjoy in the last 12 months were Only God Forgives and maybe Upstream Colour. Well, I wouldn't suggest I didn't enjoy upstream colour, more I was left with no Idea how to feel about it and still haven't made my mind up.

Its rare a film comes out that we go 'we have to see that' its more look what's on and go see it if its got a decent review. Was sad to miss Jimmy's Hall though, love Ken Loach.

If you can reach East London (Close to Lewisham, pop on the DLR!)
I suggest 'Genesis' in Whitechapel/Mile End. My friend took me there the other day, its clean, nice and a good atmosphere!

I really want to see Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas . . . I'm a huge Terry Gilliam fan. Is it good?

It's iconic


If you can see it in a cinema then do... it's a bit of a trip.



The fun part is if you don't like it then at least the music is good. :awesome:
