Cinemas in Finchley, Greater London*

Places to go to see the latest releases

You can tell us more about Finchley.

  • The one in Muswell Hill is a rip off and very skanky but I've been told great things about the one in East Finchley. It does a great good range of films, the blockbusters as well as some independent films.
  • Warner Village-ugly, anodyne but useful for blockbusters
  • The pheonix, a real cinema.
  • warnors broths next to mac donalds just off summers lane
  • Warner village in East Finchley. If you go there on a week night, and see a gormless looking bunch of people standing about looking awkward, then you've come on the local singles club night. Good for the soul though, coz if these people can pull, then that makes the rest of us super-studs!
  • There is a proposed cinema as part of the art's centre at Tally Ho Corner. That horrible muliplex thingy, built over what was a great lido. The excellent phoenix cinema.
  • Warner Brothers Village is just about OK. Make sure you get tickets in advance as the queues are full of rowdy youth either shouting to each other or their mates on the mobile. Not pleasant. For a real treat go to the Phoenix in East Finchley. Not the latest word in technology or comfort, but friendly, small and charming with pre-War interiors to admire. Normally shows main stream "thinking" films or art-house classics.
  • The 'Warner Village' is really nice - if you've had a lobotomy first. Otherwise its just another charmless out-of-town multiplex showing an exclusive diet of American crap.
  • Great complex in North Finchley Leisure Park- Warner Village cinema - the best cinema- with every film you want to see showing at some time in the week. Same place - Bowling alley loads of lanes but beware to book otherwise there is a small chance of getting in.
  • The Phoenix in East Finchley shows ace alternative films and is "double fookin top"
