Cinemas in Islington, Greater London*

Places to go to see the latest releases

You can tell us more about Islington.

  • Screen on The Green on Upper Street
  • Vue in the N1, big, clean n decent prices
  • The Vue, like all Vues I guess, but a new up-to-date state-of-the-art type building. For the more discerning audience The Screen on the Green, Upper Street.
  • The Warner Village Cinema - OK it's a bit expensive but the screens are huge and there is loads of space! Very comfortable. Plus it's very close to the pubs, expecially Wetherspoons next door. A great night out.
  • Good about Screen on Green. V cold - including the staff. Go to Renoir in Bloomsbury instead - art flicks, nicer people and a bar
  • the new warner village cinema near angel tube. warners are good at invested in decent sound and screen technology. shame about the screen on the green, just showing mainstream fare. i agree, the staff can be a bit snotty, but then islington is becoming a watering hole for yuppies isn't it?
  • Screen on the green, 15 to get in
  • Screen on Islington Green serves coffee and has an irritatingly pompous audience. The cinema is sometimes quite chilly. They used to show more alternative films but now just seem to deal in majors. Holloway Odeon remains a hangout for rowdy teenagers. Several screens give choice of mainstream films. Not strictly Islington (it's the City of London) but definitely worth a busride: Barbican Cinema 1 is large, VERY comfortable, occasionally alternative and with a very civilised audience (quiet)
  • Screen on the Green offers a very different cinema experience with a mixture of mainstream and arts film. Surrounded by loads of pubs and restaurants for before and after. Also art deco and refurbished Odeon in Holloway Road for that popcorn experience. Contact details on factsheets
