Electric Cinema Portobello is one of London’s oldest purpose-built cinemas. It’s been lovingly and trendily updated for the 21st century.
And whether you’re a London local or a visitor, you should visit this place at least once. Just beware! Once you’ve had the Electric Cinema experience, no other cinema will ever cut the mustard ever again.
A vintage building soaked in history. Luxurious seating. And the Soho House seal of approval (Soho House owns and runs the place). Ticket prices may be premium but you’re never in any doubt that you’re getting an experience to match.
You’ll find Electric Cinema right in the middle of Portobello Road, just a couple of corners away from Ladbroke Grove station. And not too far from Notting Hill Gate.
If you’re visiting while Portobello Road Market is in full swing, the cinema is easy to miss. So keep looking up for the Electric Cinema logo.
Also nearby, if you’re planning on making a day of it, you’ll find Pizza East Portobello (a great pizza joint) and Lisboa Patisserie (an amazing Portuguese bakery). Not forgetting the famous antique shops and pretty facades along Portobello Road.
An exceptionally luxuriant cinema experience.
