I regularly visit this Cinema simply because its stylish and classy, the bar staff are professional and I love cashmere wrap - just in case you get chilly. Another reason to visit this cinema is for the interior and exterior so retro. Connoisseur's will love...More

The Electric is probably well-known to many out there as one of the pioneers of a new genre of (high) luxury cinematic venues. Whether paying super-premium prices to watch the same movie one can see in the comfort of one's own home is a winner...More

What a place! Perfect for a date night. We booked the front row beds and they were so comfortable! A different night out, and not ridiculously overpriced. Can't wait to go back.

Sat in a very comfortable armchair with foot rest which contains a cashmere blanket to use during the film. Food & drink available. Beautiful cinema and I just wish Soho House would open one in Manchester!!

Do the beds come with pillows and a blanket or is it just the armchairs that come with a blanket?

Howdy yes there are blankets no need for pillows as the already have large headrest type support. I have been on the bed myself but I've noticed these things plenty of times.

Do you have to book online or can you also book ahead right there? And where can you buy the gift cards?

You're wiser to book online, we had to book a couple of weeks in advance, it's quite popular! I'm sure you could phone & book too, they had a tiny booking office on arrival. Enjoy 😊
