Cosy Cinemas for those Cold London Nights

Posted October 25, 2019
Becky – Astor Hyde Park
Now that the weather is turning a little colder, a lot of us like to wrap up warm and go for the indoor activities that London has to offer.  If you are like us, you came to the right place,  here are some cracking cinemas experiences near any Astor location. 


Electric Cinema

One of our beloved near Astor Kensington is the rustic Electric Cinema. Just a few blocks away from the hostel and located in the heart of Notting Hill the Electric Cinema was one of the first-ever cinemas built in London. You can tell when you visit it with its beautiful attention to detail in all the corridors of the building. As well as having all the new up and coming films, they show some real classics and our beloved childhood favourites in a bundle! You can choose from a cosy sofa, a normal nice chair or even a crazy big cushion. The choice is yours and prices vary from £15 to around £22 depending on how luxurious you feel.

Cine Lumiere

Next on our agenda is the Cine Lumiere in South Kensington, close to Astor Hyde Park. This stunning cinema shows all the foreign and independent films that your heart desires; you will feel the elegance and class ooze through you when you enter this lavish location. It’s advisable to book it in advance because seats run out fast! Tickets for this experience cost only £8.


Curzon Victoria

If you are staying near Astor Victoria, I can say they have some absolute smashers for cinemas also. Curzon Victoria cinema is a cultural hub where a movie and vino are the best combo. Not only do they show you the latest and greatest, but you can enjoy a delicious glass of wines from across the world. Prices for the wine will vary depending on your choice of poison and for cinema tickets start from £7 to £14 max.


Odeon Cinemas

Last but not least on our cinema list is the London renowned Odeon! Perhaps the most convenient option as you will find an Odeon a stone through away from any Astor Location. Pick between two options: standard or luxury – for those wanting to make a good impression on a date or simply treat themselves. They show all the new and shinning films as well as offering a great variety of delicious food options. Grab a pizza and a cosy seat and have a fantastic night!
