Going to the cinema in Leicester Square, London, can be a depressing experience. The large multiplexes all have a cinema in the area, but the prices are expensive1. And, whether you are bothered by hordes of tourists with oversized rucksacks or are harassed every few steps by promoters handing out flyers for nightclubs, just finding a cinema can be distressing.
However, a little gem of a cinema is tucked away around the corner from the square which charges reasonable prices. The Prince Charles Cinema is cosy, has comfy seats and is a wonderful find. Shows range from cult classics2 to films which are a couple of months old. If it's cinematic pleasure you're after, this is where you'll find it.
