The Electric Cinema, PortobelloLush leather armchairs, beds on the front row, comfy footstools, wine coolers and small tables storing snacks and drinks make this small, independent cinema one of the most appealing in London. Nestled in the middle of Notting Hill's ultra-trendy Portobello Road, the Electric offers a unique cinematic experience and is hugely popular with people from the film industry and average film-fans alike. With a program that mixes current blockbusters and quality mainstream movies with classics and art-house films, the cinema's programme reflects this new concept. London's oldest cinema (it was opened in 1910), the finely restored Grade II-listed building boasts a gorgeous gilt-domed box office with a pretty mosaic floor leading to an elegant panelled auditorium in Baroque style. Start the evening off with tapas-style snacks such as delicious olives and freshly prepared Mediterranean nibbles or order fish and chips and scoff wholeheartedly during the programme. Stock up with a bottle of wine, recline in a plush leather armchair, place your feet on the comfy footstools and enjoy the comfort of your own home with booming surround sound. There's a great bistro-style restaurant and bar attached too - a destination in its own right.
