A few hundred metres from the huge cinema in Leicester Square lies a cinema much more low-key… and much more luxurious. Battle your way through the tourists and up the regal steps of The Courthouse Hotel. You may have heard of their calming Sanook Spa (we reviewed it back in October) and their wintery Soho Ski Terrace but we’ll be impressed if you know about their state of the art cinema room.

Newly refurbished, the cinema boasts leather seats and tactile suede walls and cult classics shown every Saturday evening – Chicago, The Breakfast Club and Breakfast at Tiffany’s are on their February programme. Tickets are very reasonable and include a 2-course lunch, dinner or afternoon tea in their restaurant Carnaby Brasserie, as well as a Champagne cocktail on arrival. We know you will have just had a meal but no cinema experience is complete without snacks so salted popcorn and ice cream to the rescue.

Courthouse Cinema Film Club, every Saturday at 5.30pm and 8pm. The Courthouse Hotel, 19-21 Great Marlborough Street, Soho, W1F 7HL
