The staff always make or break an attraction - in this case the friendliness of the staff was fantastic. On getting tickets (included with a London pass) the chap behind the counter was helpful and friendly. On returning later and speaking to an oriental lady behind the bar, she was delightful - chatty, friendly and attentive. The girls downstairs collecting... More

On a rainy Sunday evening, we caught "Everybody Wants Some," a funny movie about the week before college starts and the adventures of a baseball team. The theatre was maybe 10% filled but the seats were comfortable and it was nice to be able to enjoy a glass of bubbly with our average popcorn.

This is a great venue - good bars and meeting spaces as well as excellent auditoria for films . It is well sited and very much a cultural treasure in the centre of town . Sadly it is under threat from a large development project - so without a strong campaign it may disappear . It would be a great... More

Always got something on here that you'd never find in the blockbuster cinemas and located right between Soho and ChinaTown.

The Arthouse theatres have good sound and seat elevation. Good choice of films showing. The dining experience was pleasant with a good bar and tucker.

Cafe had an excellent salad baguette/crisps and drink for £5 before the film. Good sightlines in larger screen despite subdivision of the old Columbia auditorium, itself a list war basement cinema standing on the bomb site of its predecessor. I hope the campaign to keep it is successful.

Was dismayed to hear that this cinema could be demolished to accommodate a Crossrail ticket hall, as this has been a favourite cinema of mine for 20 years or more. But after this visit, am not so mournful - firstly because £15 for a ticket to an arthouse film in a small cinema with a small screen (we are not... More

We arranged to meet friends here for a drink before going on for a meal. It is clearly a popular meeting place as pretty much all tables were taken. The 4 of us squeezed around a small table while we consumed our drinks. The bill for 2 fruit juices, 1 beer and 1 small white wine came to £15, which... More

Cafe at ground level, bar below that, cinema entry further down. Decor exudes an easy glamour. Ticket taker was polite and friendly. What did we see? The groundbreaking 'Tangerine' (2015) which was shot on iPhone but had a widescreen film look. Screen wasn't gigantic but it was just the right sort of intimate. Art house done right.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
