Just went to my first ‘Electric Scream’ movie with my 6 week old baby girl at the Electric Cinema, Portobello Road. It was fabulous fun! ... I highly recommend the experience with babies. Love every minute (and am going again next week) ...!

I only went to Notting Hill. All I can say is it’s about the experience. If you just want a movie theatre then go anywhere. If you want a to create memories and have an experience then Notting Hill is a MUST!
