Electric Cinema

Fancy watching the latest installment of Pirates of the Caribbean from a nice comfy sofa, but without the hassle of downloading it (which would be illegal anyway, so you wouldn’t even THINK of doing that, would you?)? Well the Electric Cinema, over on Station Street, has viewings every day until the 14th of June at 17:15 and 20:30 (and a 14:00 matinée on weekends and bank holidays).

For £12 per person you can have your very own sofa seat, although it’s not quite just your own because it requires a minimum of two people. An interesting feature when you have your own sofa seat is that you can text your orders for food and drinks to the bar, who will then deliver the snacks straight to your seat… although I guess this means that people will be leaving their phones on during the film, which could get quite annoying.

Anyway, I’m intrigued. And for a film as long as PotC3 (168 minutes!) a sofa seat might be worth the price…

    Be forewarned there are a few issues.

    The screen is small and the sound system is not the best. The sofas are at the back of the theatre and the servers are continually coming and going so the doors are always opening and you may have them walking in front of you.

    I tried it and it just wasn’t good enough for me. I really wanted to like it but just didn’t.

    Ah yeah, I hadn’t though about the fact that the servers would be coming and going for OTHER people as well… still, I’m willing to give a chance just to see what it’s like :)

    Each to their own.
    I love the Electric for those very reasons.
    Granted I tend to go there to watch the more obscure movies, but the atmosphere with the audience (and the staff) is what makes it a special treat.
