Won some tickets via Twitter to see the Friday night showing of Gremlins.

Really good communication from the HTC team and we arrived with our wrist bands waiting for us. You need to exchange cash for tokens on arrival, get changed into your swim wear and head downstairs to the cinema area. The Hot Tubs are lovely and hot and the hosts advise you on all you need to know.

Table service provided so you don't even need to get out the tub.

Once the film is over, the DJ spins some tunes and they fill the tubs with bubble bath and that's when the party starts!

Recommended!! And will hopefully be back with a larger group

i went here Oct 27th with my Gf to watch the lost boys (Classic)

lots of good points on the night staff very friendly
greeted us and showed us around and explained the token system for buying drinks and food
shown to our tub, tub side service for ordering whatever you want

fun night, watched the film, they have screens at both ends of the room so everyone can see

i would do this once more maybe reasonbly priced too i thought

however the are a few bad points

CONTACT, the is no phone number on the website
so when i had a question i used there online contact us form
after a few weeks i heard nothing back so i then contacted them on twitter and on facebook
but still to this day no reply

i found this very frustrating

THE TUBS WERE TOO HOT, After 20 mins the tub was toooo hot and everyone started to sit on the edge of thier tubs only putting thier feet in. i asked one of the staff to lower the temp and the tub was then fine however when they seen everyone sitting on the edge they should of offered to every one doing so to turn the heat down as some tubs in the middle of the room couldnt see the screen while people were sat on the edges

HARD TO FIND; took us ages to find it a little map printed with your order confirmation would help the postcode search doesnt get you there on both google maps and tomtom

still maybe i was unlucky with the contact issue and you should ask to have the temp lowered if its too hot like i did

deffo go and do this it was a very fun night everyone friendsly and after the movie its party time

Visited on November 1st for their Halloween screening of Beetlejuice.

A tad difficult to find at first (the invite said it was down Pedley Street but it was closer towards Brick Lane, about 200 yards away).

Very well organised event. Drinks reasonably priced; you exchange cash for little tokens which you keep it in a little zip up around your wrist.

Real mix of people and the party really starts once the film is over - people aren't shy and it's all about diving into other tubs, striking up a conversation and having a good time. Which everyone did.

One criticism being that fitting six people into our hot tub was a bit tight - four or five would have been more suitable. But they have to maximise their profits and it wasn't a massive problem.

All in all, well worth having a go!

It's pricey, but you pay for the novelty of doing something completely unique! People are quite chatty throughout the film but there are subtitles so you can still enjoy the film. Very well set up and organised - lots of fun!!

My friend and I had a great time at hot tub cinema. The staff were great, the set up worked well and the service to the hot tub was an awesome idea!

When we went there was a great atmosphere and loads of fun but don't expect to be focus on the film too much. Great party afterwards, awesome night.
