In contrast to other large multiplex-cinemas in Leicester Square, this is a little gem of a theater tucked away around the corner of the busy square, which shows cult classics and modern movies at reasonable prices.

I thought this was voted best cinema in London? Wouldn't go here again for free. Where to start... went to see Die Hard and the seating is TERRIBLE, it actually slopes downward away from the tiny screen and isn't staggered so the tall guy in...More

We went to the Prince Charles Theatre for an all night horror movie festival. It was mostly locals and a few tourists like us. The theatre is from the 60s or 70s so it's a basic long box with a smallish screen at the end....More

This is a cute little cinema in the heart of the west end and has a very different feel from your large chains. I didn't like the way the seating are dips to a V in the middle with the screen raised up high so...More

This cinema shows some real classics with interactive performances depending on the event. Seen an array of films that always proved an experience. Seen rocky horror picture show with live drag and options to heckle and join in karaoke or dance. That alone is worth...More

This independent cinema really has a one of a kind atmosphere. It plays the best in new indie films, cult classics and more.

This was my first visit to Prince Charles, but it looks like they always have different and interesting events/screenings going on rather than what they show at your run-of-the-mill standard cinemas. Great to see an independent cinema offering a different experience. Event was well organised,...More
