Love film, but hate multiplexes? The Electric offers the perfect solution—a luxurious cinematic experience in a gorgeous, Grade II listed theatre. Inviting leather sofas with footstools line the back row, making it an ideal spot for a romantic rendezvous. Champagne, wine and beer can all be taken into the theatre and there’s even a helpful table at hand to hold the ice bucket.
All tastes are catered for with an eclectic programme which covers everything from art house to blockbusters. But you’ll have to pay for it—tickets range from £12.50 to £30 each for the sofa experience. If that’s too much in these credit-crunching times, then why not sample one of their Sunday matinees, which are marginally cheaper, ranging from £7.50-£25? An ideal special occasion place, even if requisite buttery popcorn for sale is shockingly missing.
