Why see a film in a normal cinema when you can see it in a wonderful old-world venue? There are some great places, all in Notting Hill, two of them located right next to the Notting Hill tube station:
The Coronet: A Victorian cinema built in 1898. Oldest and least comfortable of the three, but very beautiful and with a special deal on Tuesdays (any film £3.50). For more information: www.
The Gate: Beautiful venue dating from 1910. Book early to get the big reclining two-seater places at the back. High picture and sound quality â€“ often runs transmissions of opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House and the New York Met. For more information: www.
The Electric: A bit further away than the others, lying half way down Portobello Road. Luxurious cinema with sumptuous reclining leather seats, 1930s décor, a bar, and table for your drinks and foot rest for your feet. For more information: www.
