Electric Cinema

191 Portobello Road Notting Hill London W11 2ED

When a mob attacked the Electric during WWI they believed the owner was signalling to Zeppelins from the roof and calling down bombs – nowadays the Electric is more likely to be mobbed by hipster locals for its arty film selection, and has become a Notting Hill institution again after it closed briefly in the 90s and reopened in 2001 after a huge refurbishment. The interior is a glorious mix of luxurious listed features and cool touches, and the selection of films suitably eclectic. There's a sofa at the back of the room for lounging or you can opt for more traditional theatre seats, and of course don't forget to visit the bar, which offers a great view of the passing crowds on Portobello Road.
