Fancy a movie?

You don’t have to travel up to the West End to catch the latest blockbuster – we have fantastic movie houses a few minutes from Leabank Square.

The closest are just one stop from Hackney Wick – at Stratford.

Just get off at the Stratford Station & walk through the shopping centre to Stratford Picture House. There are 4 screens there so you are assured to catch a movie that be to your tastes.

If you are over 60 – then you’re in for a great treat! Each Wednesday you can see any of the first matinee performances of any film for just £2! And this includes a complimentary tea or coffee & biscuits at the very relaxing café/bar upstairs.

For kids between 3 – 10 year old there is a fantastic Kids Club on Saturday mornings at 10.30 am. There is a half hour of fun & games & activities – with the movie starting at 11.00am. This is £3 per child or adult – but there is a concession if you join the Kids Club membership.

Then there is the Rio Cinema at 107 Kingsland High Road in Dalston, Hackney.

Just take the number 30 bus from St Mary’s Church – and get off at Dalston – and walk down for a couple of minutes – and you’ll see this beautiful Art Deco building. That’s it!!

There is a children’s morning show on Saturday morning again – starting at 10.30. This costs £1 per child – and £2 for the accompanying adult – very cheap! This is brilliant fun for kids – and adults too!

There is also a fantastic Parents & Babies Club – where you can get a few friends who also have babies – and all go down – and not have to worry about normal cinema go-ers shushing when Precious decides to shout for milk! These are on different days – so you need to check the website for days (see below).

So there you are – why not knock on your neighbour’s door and ask them if they fancy a movie sometime. It only takes a few minutes to get to them.
