Cinemas around Drury Lane

Prince Charles Cinema

7 Leicester Pl, London WC2H 7BY, UK – 020 7494 3654

I’ve seen a few films here including a sing along and a special screening with a Q&A. The main screen downstairs is good with a decent sized screen. Upstairs the quality of the picture isn’t as good as I’ve seen in other cinemas (less sharp) and some of the seats aren’t directly in front of the screen. The seats are comfortable but the place feels in need of a bit of renovation, particularly the bar area and toilets. Fun events though and in the heart of the west end.

Fantastic. How something like this has continued existing where it is amazes me. The perfect blend of indie cinema, but comfortable, decent screens, good sound, and friendly staff. Plus, you can buy a beer on the door. Best cinema experience I've had for ages. Book in advance.

Regent Street Cinema

309 Regent St, Marylebone, London W1B 2UW, UK – 020 7911 5050

Amazing atmosphere and comfortable seats. Steep enough so that the view is completely clear. Special nights with refreshments are always well organized, might need to book in advance to find place though. Really wish it was a little bit cheaper, as I would then always be there.

Amazing historical cinema. Nice little bar and glamorous interiors. Well worth a visit. Seats are comfortable but the last three rows are very high, avoid them for a good view.

Backyard Cinema

42 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6DR, UK – 020 3773 9075

Amazing visit. Bean bags are really comfy, a nice change to normal seats. Really nice entrance and polite staff. Cinema is set up really nicely and has a story book feel, adds to the magic of the film.

We had so much fun here! The venue is brilliant and the staff were so friendly. After walking through a mini winter wonderland you are met with a warm and cosy cinema area, comfortable beanbag seats with blankets and a well stocked bar. I wish all cinema experiences were like this!

Theatres for Drury Lane

Delfont Mackintosh Theatres

5 Aldwych, London WC2B 4LD, UK – 0844 482 5138

Great theatre, great stuff! Too bad my daughter and I could not fully enjoy the show (Mamma Mia) for some rude and abnoxious girls behinds us who talked the whole time. There were many announcements about cell phones and photos, perhaps something should be mentioned about staying quite as well, although those ignorant girls would have probably ignored it anyway.

Charing Cross Theatre

10 Craven St, London WC2N 5PE, UK – 020 7930 5868

Hidden gem (literally, hard to find it on the station grounds) priding a comfortable and affordable venue in central London. The show we saw was cheeky and corky. Would definitely consider other shows in the same venue in the future. Would recommend rows 5-10 for a good view of the stage.

The piano bar is amazing, the environment warm and lovely. And romantic, if needed, before it gets too crowded

Barbican Centre

Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS, UK – 020 7638 4141

Puts on some very good, interesting and innovative productions but I agree with the excellent "Theatre Monkey" website that it's weirdly difficult to find the perfect seat in the main Theatre. The balcony seats feel far from the stage, with the view affected by a safety bar. The central seats in the stalls are accessed right from the end of the row (not good for claustrophobics). And the end of row seats in the stalls give a restricted, sideways view of the stage. The seats themselves are like super-plush benches, which my companion found very comfortable but not all do. There are many opportunities for eating and drinking in the Barbican. But the whole venue feels vast and pretty impersonal. What is definitely lovely is sitting outside in good weather on the lakeside terrace near the ponds - very restful, with a nearby cafe for a cup of tea, and a good place to arrange to meet.

Ideal concert venue, great acoustics, good visibility and comfortable seats. Foyers outside a bit crowded but they've added more bench seating. Few bars at the venue but plenty of good pubs/ restaurants in Spitalfields nearby, 5 minutes away.
