I was reminded of how awesome the Electric Cinema is in Notting Hill, in my search to buy “Sex and the City 2” tickets. The Electric has to be the absolute best place to see a movie in all of London. Each movie-goer gets a big leather chair with a footstool, and a place to set your drinks, and snacks- including a place to chill you wine if you choose to purchase a bottle. There is a food and drink stand in the theatre at the back, where you can purchase your treats up to about ten minutes into the screening of the film.
If you are going on a date, American Girl recommends reserving the couches at the back of the cinema. These are giant, cozy bed-like seats where you can cuddle and watch the film from. Although, a word to the wise, if you really care about the film you are seeing, go for the regular seats. AG has fallen asleep both times she reserved the two-seater sofas.
Sex and the City is playing at the Electric until the 24 of June, if you haven’t seen it already- get tickets, order a bottle of prosecco and a chocolate brownie, and revel in a truly civilized film-going experience!
Hey AG! Thank you for this recommendation. I saw SATC at the Chelsea Cinema on Kings Road and there were great cocktails, but next time I go for a show I'll be checking out the Electric!
This reminds me of where I saw SATC stateside – at Gold Class Cinemas in Los Angeles. So glad the UK has some place just as fabulous!
Wow, what a great blog you have here! I am from California and have lived in Notting Hill for over four years now and absolutely love the Electric Cinema. It's also one of our favorite spots for Sunday brunch. I look forward to reading your blog daily now. Cheers!
