The Electric Cinema is located in Portobello Road, a short distance from either Ladbroke Grove tube station or Westbourne Park tube station.
Film-wise it specializes in arthouse fare, usually showing the latest
high-profile foreign or independent releases, though occasionally a ‘quality’ blockbuster will sneak onto their schedules.
They also run a series of double-bills every Sunday, which can be anything from foreign films to classics. In addition, there is a members-only ‘Kids Club’ that shows children’s films and provides games and activities on Saturday afternoons.
