Small independent art deco cinema just up the road from Dalston Kingsland Station. It's the only cinema still extant in the London Borough of Hackney (as far as Kake can tell from the Hackney council website and various other bits of the interweb, anyway). Participates regularly in film festivals (e.g. the East End Film Festival in April 2008).
Single screen with both stalls and circle. Small snack/drink counter in the foyer. Toilets are upstairs, and also to either side of the screen in the auditorium.
