“Cut out the popcorn!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Now this is probably the best cinema I have been to. Just the right size, really comfortable seats, great sightlines and a fabulous sound system.
So why do they compromise all this comfort by pushing the sale of sweets and popcorn? They can't reasonably argue it is to make up revenue when ticket prices are a hefty £15.00.
I had the distraction of someone next to me crunching their way through a whole film last night, which completely ruined the evening.

“Guess what, the electric cinema experience in West London”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

The electric was first with its space and a grown up experience of having a night at the flicks.

The Olympic Studios in Barns is now a Cinema and eatery. No longer do you have to venture to Portobello to have a first class experience.

Two screens, great seating and the sound has been taken to the next level. The attached restaurant suppliers everything from popcorn to cake, you can drink wine, cocktails or beer while watching what Hollywood or the art world has to offer.

The studies were where all the great and the good went to record the hits, some of the latest artists were Adele, Lilly Allen and many more including the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin from the heyday of the recording studies. On the flyer it explains Abbey Road had the Beatles, we had the rest. As you would expect the tickets are not cheap but as the girl in the ticket office explained it is a premium product, which I have to agree, so if you’re prepaid to spend £30 for two, you have no finer place.

The only down side is the shows times are almost incomprehensible and the projectionists needs to calm down on the volume, he’s got a new toy and I guess he is just a little excited which is why they lose a full excellent rating. Take a look, you’ll be impressed.
