The Picture House group may try to paint themselves as this liberal, independent, community cinema group, which obviously grates since their sweets and drinks are equally as expensive as The Odeon's (and that's what you judge cinemas on, right?), but I love them anyway. Especially the Hackney Picturehouse.
The screens here have super-comfortable towelling seats, the cafe does a good burger, excellent mini pizzas and a range of local craft beers.
Here's looking at you... Hackney Picturehouse.
