The Electric is cinema in style. No screaming kids, no teenagers throwing popcorn and no sticky seats. Instead, there’s one screen only and its dedicated to comfort – this place wants you to enjoy your movie-going experience as much as possible. There are 65 leather armchairs to choose from, all with footstools and side tables for drinks and nibbles. If you want a little more intimacy on your date, you can instead sit at the back on one of their two seater sofas. And if that still doesn’t do it for you, the front row contains six double beds to relax on and gaze up at the screen. They really do take film screenings further than the average cinema.
The movies themselves are a mix between mainstream and indie/art house. Seeing as there’s only one screen, if the movie you’re looking for isn’t showing, you’ll just have to wait. The price is nothing to sniff out, the higher level of comfort making for a more expensive ticket, so they question you’ll have to ask yourself is, is it worth it? With the amount of leather bound cushions in the auditorium, it certain is hard to resist.
