65 leather armchairs, footstools and side tables make this Portobello cinema a truly pleasurable experience. Make sure to book one of the three 2-seater sofas or even one of the 6 double beds if going here on a romantic date. There’s also a fully functioning bar and diner so munch on fries and wine whilst watching the latest box office hit.

A luxury cinema experience starting from only £9? You heard us. Recline on any of the 42 comfy sofas and armchairs, snuggle up with blankets or even kick back on one of their Ottoman footstools. And these studios even have in-screen bars for that much needed G&T during those dreaded boring parts of the movie.

This beautifully old cinema boasts over 80 years of providing Londoners with quality cinematic experiences. Screen One seats 311 people and even has 2 of its original royal boxes. Pretend to be a royal yourself whilst snacking on selections of posh snacks, quality tipple and an eclectic mix of cinema choices.

This small cinema chain is all about reviving independent cinema and what better way to do it than nestled within the comfort of a large sofa? Each venue is carefully kitted out with all our cinema comforts. Think wine coolers, waiter service, armchairs and even the option of booking your own private suite, the Everyman chain proves cinema just got a whole lot fancier.

5. The Screen on the Green, Islington

This is one of the country’s oldest cinemas and another outlet of the Everyman Cinema chain. This cute little Islington branch only has a single screen so that means viewings throughout the day but obviously, one at a time. There’s a mix of standard and premier seating and even a bar at the back of the screen.

6. Picturehouse Central

We all love a local Picturehouse but this one is certainly going to get you in the inspired arty mood before watching the latest indie film. With quirky interiors, a ground floor café, first floor restaurant and even a members bar, this cinema is home to all the latest showings as well as documentaries and live theatre screenings.

With plush armchairs, cashmere blankets and angled view seating, this cinema really is all about making sure you get the most out of your movie. Not only that but this Electric Cinema is housed in a three-floor space called Barber and Parlour that boasts a beauty store, hairdressers and nail salon all under one roof. I mean, why wouldn’t you want a mani-pedi and blowdry before your cinema date?
