Recent visit to the Lido was very pleasant - coffe in the lobby before going into the movie was enjoyable and not rushed like the more large scale/corporate cinemas. Seating in the movie was also good and surroundsing well maintained.

I always enjoy movie night here. A great place to watch a movie in luxury sets and enjoy food & wine at the same time.

A real pleasant surprise here. We went to see a live telecast of "Carmen" from the London Opera House - and what an excellent broadcast that was! And in a very comfortable and well decorated cinema; almost as good as the ones in Thailand, but...More

Only downside, no movie-theatre style popcorn! You can buy a bag of prepopped corn like you can at a grocery store but meh, it’s not the same. Lots of drinks. Comfortable seating, great view of the screen.

We love this cinema for a number of reasons, It is an elegant cinema with a luxury feel. A wide range of movies, with a number of arthouse movies shown here.

Great venue - theatres a lot smaller (and classier). The entrance & waiting area reminds me of the old gentlemens smoking room (not that I'd know), but very plush with red velvet comfy chairs everywhere.

Comfortable seats, generous glasses of wine and beautiful decor. That coupled with a good movie, was a great day to spend a rainy afternoon. Tip: you can reverse the front row seats that have recliner footrests for the full relaxing movie experience.
