Last Friday evening I ventured to the ICA, rather full of trepidation, as I am not an adventurous type, I live in Berkhampstead for a reason. I was slightly put off by the title 'Rematerialising feminism an evening of performance'. I haven't thought about feminism since 1976 when bra burning was all the rage (not that any of my undergarments... More

I saw a Tibetan film here as part of the BFI London film festival and really enjoyed it. The film was undoubtedly quirky, my boyfriend seemed a little bored at times with it, but I love independant films and himalayan cultures so this was perfect for me. The book shop at the front was nice to browse and they had... More

Initially surprised by the size of cinema 2, but for me, the impact of watching a powerful and moving film (How to Survive a Plague) was magnified by the venue. I see that other reviewers have commented that the air conditioning was ineffective, and also that noise from other cinema-goers was intrusive in such a small space. I am sure... More

There are two cinemas, cinema one and two. I attended on Sunday 17 November 2013 Cinema 2 which is small and boxy. Immediately on entering the theatre I sensed a fetid sweaty smell. I asked the attendant if she could turn the air conditioning on and she disappeared around the corner to the cash desk but I don't think she... More

A small theatre, come early. Adjacent to a busy bar where you can hang out before or after the show.

My son and I wanted to see 'A Field in England' which was showing at the ICA Cinema 2. Unlike the photograph (presumably of cinema 1) this is very small (maybe 40 seats) and with a small screen. It was a hot day and the room was very stuffy. The guy next to us took off his shoes, the guy... More

I've been a regular here for years, going to the cinemas, the bar / cafe. the galleries and the theatre. It's a brilliant spot for spending an evening - going to a movie, having a cocktail in the bar with the DJs playing, and wandering round the gallery space.

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
