You can tell us more about Spitalfields.

  • Thank god the Lux in Hoxton Square has closed. They were soooooo up their own Shoreditch arses they didnt give a toss about their customers.
  • none nearby - even the lux shut down. commercial road used to be the home of the naz cinema, one of the few cinemas in london [in the 1970's] that showed exclusively indian films] - now pulled down [i think].
  • Barbican Cinema. Best one in london, 'cos people who go there wanna see the FILMS, not suck each others faces, eat noisy food, etc.
  • Genesis - Mile End Road. Good cheap seats, but also some sound problems. You win some you lose some!
  • You have listed The Lux and another art cinema in Hoxton Sq. In fact they are the same thing!
  • The Lux in Hoxton Sq is indicative of the new type of person that can be seen parading around Shoreditch at present- looks great but far too obscure for it's own good.
  • Arts Cinema in Hoxton Square. Seasons of Slovenian art movies, Mongolian documentaries etc. Good place to spend a Sunday Afternoon
