This week’s recommendation for cinema lovers

What is it like inside London’s smallest cinema?

The Vue Piccadilly has London’s smallest cinema – it’s Screen 3 is a 40-seater. I took a trip to Piccadilly to check out the popcorn packet-sized venue. Back in 1926, this was actually one of London’s biggest cinemas. The Plaza Theatre, as it was known back then, could seat a whopping 1896 people!

The Vue Piccadilly has 5 screens and Screen 3 here is the smallest.

Ironically, here I am in London’s smallest cinema seeing a film where two of cinema’s heftiest titans duke it out! King Kong vs Godzilla. Talk about getting up close to the action!

All in all, this cinema brings a cosier, personal, touch to the big screen atmosphere.

Not quite cosying up on your sofa at home watching Netflix or DVDs on your big screen TV – with all the distractions that brings – but a sweet spot beyond.
