Electric Cinema Shoreditch
With comfy sofas, sumptuous cocktails and wine list, gourmet treats and cosy blankets, this boutique 50-seat cinema in Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, is one of Hackney's best kept secrets.
Tucked away in the basement of the Barber and Parlour building, the cinema shows a mix of blockbusters, international and independent films on its single screen. It's also available for private hire.
As part of the Soho House stable, the Electric Cinema Shoreditch is a high-end, luxurious movie-going experience, a far cry from the standard multiplex fare.
The smallest of Hackney's dedicated movie theatres has big additions: velvet single seats and double sofas, each equipped with blankets, cushions, a drinks table and wine coolers. Just watch out you don't relax so much that you fall asleep during the movie.
