You can tell us more about Bethnal Green.

  • There's one in Rich Mix - never been
  • nearest Cinema is the GENESIS, Mile End Rd,E1( about 20 mins walk from Bethnal Green Tube)
  • Then:The ABC Regal Well st; where I saw (As a school boy) the premier of The Exorcist, Clockwork Orange plus others. The Pavillion Mare st; where I saw (As a school boy) the premier of Enter the Dragon e.t.c
  • i go down to angel
  • Thank god for being able to buy DVD's on the internet and Sky. I used to like the Rio but too hard to get too.
  • On page there is some info about the lux. The lux closed, was then DNET and has re - opened as the LUX. the lux does not run the cinema now, but there are still screenings in conjunction with artists, exhibitions, projects.
  • Odeon in Mile End Road was our nearest. Saw Bambi and Tron there.
  • - There's no Odeon on Mare Street, as Knowhere claims... There's a great artsy-type cinema on Kingsland Road called Rio - worth going just to see the architecture, if not the films. On Hoxton Square there's Lux, another trendy artsy place.
  • There's a new Genesis multiplex on Mile End Road between Stepney Green and Whitechapel tubes (it's the only cinema anywhere near Bethnal Green). The screens aren't huge but it's worth going to if you live nearby as it's a lot cheaper than Leicester Square.
  • Gaumont, Dalston, Odeon around the corner and the one opposite Hackney Empire in Mare St. I went to them all in the 60's
