  • Visitor Information

Originally the Paragon Music Hall, built in 1885, Genesis Cinema is east London's oldest cinema. Located between Whitechapel and Stepney Green tube stations, the independent cinema is now a hub for local hipsters, with five screens, a bar, coffee shop and gallery, as well as unbelievably cheap tickets. Designed by a team who develop film sets, it's an attractive setting and the café serves tempting treats such as crodoughs from nearby bakery Rinkoffs. The standard screens aren't the comfiest but with tickets much cheaper than big chain cinemas - adult prices start at just £4 - who's complaining? There's also the option to book in at the plush Studio 5, which boasts comfy sofas and armchairs, footstalls, blankets and a drinks service. Prices for the studio start at as little as £8.
