20 reviews of Stratford East Picture House in English
I love going to the Stratford Picture House. The staff are always friendly , helpful, chatty. Having a drink with a film is sooooo good. lots of great stuff outside the usual cinema offer. The cinema is very accessible if you are in a wheelchair – some bigger cinemas could do with having a look at what works here. And the ‘Silver Screen’ afternoon is totally brilliant, soooo cheap, and very very full! They have really thought about people having a good time going out to a cinema.
Going to the cinema is not just about the films….One very important thing to me is to talk to people before and after a performance about films.
The Picturehouse has the very staff who do that.
You could not wish to meet a nicer and more friendly bunch of people.
I have been a Picturehouse member for quite a number of years and as a serious cinema-goer it is one of the best things that I have ever done.
Keep up the great work!
The plus side is that this place is only 15mins away from me!
Where ticket prices in central london are around £12.50, tickets here are £7.50 max.
I have only been here a few times, however, what makes them special is that they play vintage films.
The downside is that it looks a bit grotty, but i guess thats acceptable with the type of cinema they are trying to be.

talking about “Silver Screen” Bargain with a cuppa and biscuits where we seniors get a treat and service.Great to see ancients zimmering down the stairs to sit in huge comfy seats then to get out their sweets. Love it.
Some regulars talk all through and answer any screen questions. So what. These are the peeps who never ad a penny to spare in them days so are making up for it now. Love Stratford management for keeping it on for the silver screeners.Worth the wait when I was 59!
Stratford is very diverse :only white mainly women go along.Get out o your kitchens and get some wider culture. All possible at Stratford east Why? cos there’s the theatre and the circus and multi ethnic eateries.
All applause to the management who retain silver screen.
Restricted expensive car parking. Loads of disabled bays but always almost full and loads of marauding ticket plonkers. Frequent buses stop outside the pictures. Just a main road to cross
Get your sweets at Patels first cos those cinema goodies will swallow your pension, fund and all.Take a cardi or a pashmena as it can be coldish in the auditorii.
Part of the chain containing the excellent Ritzy in Brixton, the Picturehouse is a diamond in the rough in Stratford. Great films, and a nice selection of food during the day. Get down there.
Very few screens and can look abit dingy, but on the whole its a good place to go (just annoying when they don’t show the film you want to see as they have the next rubbish 'blockbuster’ on multiple screens).
The bar is also good. However, as with all cinema’s, the drinks, sweets and popcord stand is a blatant rip off. Its legalised mugging, but hey you still do it because its all part of the cinema experience!
I’ve been to the Stratford Picture House once and I’ve never really felt the need to go back.
Ticket prices are excellent, and if you don’t mind the quality of the establishment in which you watch your films this is highly recommended. Personally, I found the cinema to be very dingy and uncomfortable and in the film that I saw people were talking pretty much all the way through. It’s a very busy place however, and maybe in such places you have to expect that. On the plus side though, the staff are very friendly and occasionally they’ll show a film that no-one else does.
Excellent value for money, but not great quality once you’re inside.
You can have a beer! In the cinema! Even whilst you watch a film!
Though it seems daft to get excited about such things, it does make for a much nicer cinema experience (or so my other half insists!)
They have a membership scheme, which lowers the price of a ticket. You also don’t have to pay a booking fee if you reserve tickets online. Especially good for mondays, where normal priced tickets are only a few quid, and members get to watch a film for 2-3 quid if I remember correctly.
The only problem is the parking, being in the centre of stratford you pretty much have to park in the multi storey. So I’d advise to go to screenings after 7pm, since the parking is only about a quid later on, compared to over £3 if you park up around 6pm.
The seats used to be horrendous and you’d be likely to come out with backache, but they’ve put in a load of comfy seats relatively recently, so the seating’s nice and now doesn’t detract from the film.
Great cinema all round - the screens are big and the sound quality is great much better than a home cinema system xD It’s 5 minutes from Stratford station and the ticket prices are competitive at under £6. The staff are extremely friendly and the food prices are some of the best i’ve seen, the popcorn isn’t THAT expensive. Always has the latest movies too, not just some old timers - great!
A modern looking building housing a few cinema screens but it has a more personal feel than the large multiplexes. The usual over-priced popcorn etc is on offer but there is also a very pleasant bright and airy cafe bar area upstairs. Here you can relax with a coffee or glass of wine before enjoying your film. They also have a good range of films on offer usually, for all ages and tastes. If you feel like some culture, they are also doing live screenings of various operas from the Metropolitan Opera 2008-09 season. A great chance to try out some quality opera at a reasonable price and less snobby atmosphere!
Decent picture house showing the latest movie releases. Seats are comfortable, but no cup holder for your drinks (or not in the screen I went in the last coup[le of times) .
Very cheap tickets on Mondays, so well worth going. Also near the shopping centre, so perfect if you want to relax after a day of shopping ;-)
stratford cinema is easy to get to the train station is two minutes across the road.
Has a shopping centre literally seconds away.
Also there is a wide range of restaurants surrounding this ie chinese, west indian cuisine etc.
Decent cinema showing the latest releases. Seats are really soft and comfy, and the sound and video quality are comparable to the big cinemas in Leicester Square.
Prices are very cheap, and they do memberships for regular movie goers, as well as half price tickets on Mondays!
After one visit had me hooked…the cinema is very close to the cinema and has an array of restaurants around it. Last week was my first visit and booked my tickets over the phone….which was nice and quick by the way. On doing so I also took out a membership. For my hard earned £25, I got 3 complimentary tickets, discount on tickets bought and a list of offers too including screenings to new film previews! The cinema is not a huge place, small screens and a nice bar and cheap ticket prices make it a good find.
The seats in the cinema are not the best, I could have done with some more leg room, and there isn’t any cup holders!
A rarity in a time of multiplexes and faceless cinemas and £10 - £15 a ticket London prices, the Stratford Picturehouse is a bit of a secret of mine. Hidden away opposite the theatre in a surprisingly nice bit of town, this is a really laid-back, old school place to see a film. There are small screen, members discounts, a licenced bar and tickets that cost little more than a fiver most days.
One thing that never fails to amuse me is the projected clock they put up on the curtain before the films start. Makes a change from advertising, at least!
There are basically two cinemas that I would go in London when I need to see something desperatly and NOW. One of them is Panton St Odeon that I have already reviewed. The other one is Stratford Picture House. As you can see they are quite far from each other, however, both equally worth visiting.
Stratford Picture House is a part of Vue branch, so all the members- welcome! It is also the sponsor of the independent cinema, so often you can just go there and see something you would probably never hear about. Also, Stratford has its own thematical 'evenings with’, so the one coming soon is the evening with Tim Burton.
Besides the wide range of shown films, the cinema has its almost self-contained surrounding. You can go to Pizza Expresso, or caffee upstairs, but if looking for something really interesting- there is Jamaican restaurant just around the corner.
This is a nice cinema, located very close to Stratford tube/rail station. It is a cosy venue, but food for sell as well as a bar serving both acoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Pries vary depending on day, age, time etc, but the maximum one would ay is £5.80- much cheaper tham Leicester Sq. This also has the benefit of being clos e to many of the shops and restaurants in the area....so why not make a night of it!
