Cinemas in London
206 Kings Road
I really like it here. It reminds me a bit of going to the cinema as a child, possibly because the seats and furnishings probably haven't changed much since the 70s. That is completely the charm of the place - it looks like somewhere Alvy Singer might have taken Annie Hall on a date. I hope that it doesn't change too much in the coming years, because it really has a lovely retro feel and as part of the Curzon chain, shows pretty flawless films. A wonderful escape from the hustle of the King's Road on a weekend when you want (or need) your hard earned cash to remain in your wallet, and surely deserves to be a credit-crunch favourite, even for the well-heeled folk of Chelsea.

Always check to see if the film you want to see is on at the Chelsea cinema first! It is an old style cinema with one huge screen in a big auditorium. They only used to show slightly off-beat movies but have started shamelessly cashing in on mainstream films too...if that means it can survive then I guess that's ok by me. Also, I may just stray into the odd mainstream film every now and then..ahem.The Pullman seats are well worth the extra pound (bargain) as you effectively get twice the leg-room and an armchair of a movie seat.
