The most special and charming cinema (probably most deprived too) in London. A place to catch a classic or a new release. You can get a lifetime membership for £50, weekly £1 member screenings. A place where staff are as passionate about pictures as its visitors. A must visit for movie buffs.
Designed by Wells Coates, the Isokon Building opened in 1934 and was the first apartment block to be built using reinforced concrete.
