Cinemas around Balham

ODEON

47-49 High Road, London SW16 1PW, UK – 0333 014 4501

Small, cozy. Avoid weekends, school children make too much noise. Has a good sweet selection at the pick and mix bar. Popcorn is generally warm and the staff are friendly. Screen one is huge as is always worth going for openings.

In screen 1, the sound is really bad. I already complained about this and no one seemed to listen. Also, the popcorn were cold. The staff is very nice.

Ritzy Cinema and Cafe

Brixton Oval, Coldharbour Lane, London, Brixton SW2 1JG, UK – 0871 902 5747

Clean and cosy. Especially well priced on a Monday, where the tickets are all 7.50, which makes standard adult seats half price. Website was also easy to book seats and you can choose where you want to sit with no bother. Pretty interior deco and original period features. I went with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed the evening.

Always head here on a Monday when the tickets are all £7.50, basically makes the standard adult seats half price. Good selection of food and Drinks, nice to be able to take a glass of wine into the screening with you! Also love the posh popcorn.

Clapham Picturehouse

76 Venn St, London SW4 0AT, UK – 0871 902 5727

Lovely old fashioned cinema with about 5 screens. Comfortable seats, smallish rooms and screens. Comfortable rather cluttered entrance with bar where you can get drinks and some food to bring into films. Helpful, friendly staff. Very busy at weekends, essential to book films. Very conveniently positioned in a small pedestrian street with restaurants opposite and around, and very near Clapham Common tube station. Clapham High Street, 2 minutes walk, heaving with bars and restaurants of every type. Also many shops, and of course, the Common.

I visit london 4/5 times a year and visit here. Always good choice of films of different genres, something for everyone. My friend and i are 65 and over and have discounted Silver cards. Cant remember price last time i went but excellent value as it includes free tea or coffee and biscuits. Also has a bar and you may take your drink into screening so all in all a very enjoyable experience.

Theatres for Balham

The Clapham Grand

21-25 St John's Hill, London SW11 1TT, UK – 020 7223 6523

Really good venue! Went here today for Hiphop brunch (friends 40th). Music was great! karaoke, there was a live magician going around which was also very cool.good crowd and everyone just up for a good fun and laugh. Also a raffle for a temp tattoo! 😁 Food - not that great unfortunately, we had onion bhaji which was decent, the main was a chicken and rice dish which was not that good and dessert was really average. A shame as apart from that everything else was great! Bouncers and staff really friendly!

Very nice atmosphere and lovely, helpful staff. We've been there for Amy Winehouse tribute and we had a wonderful evening :)

The Exhibit

12 Balham Station Rd, London SW12 9SG, UK – 020 8772 6556

I find some of the reviews here quite funny as they are clearly predominantly written by faux food critics and hipsters trying to hide their middle class Surrey mansion upbringing. The staff here at the Exhibit last night were very friendly, albeit a little rushed off their feet but they served with a smile. Food was not super fast in coming but it was delayed either. It gave myself and my partner a nice enough time to chat. The cinema experience was lovely and the sofas very comfortable. As for the food; the burger was cooked well, we got a decent portion of chips and the truffle mac and cheese was seriously tasty. All around, a great experience - would visit again.

Cool place to grab a drink/light bites. Only sampled the drink and never had any complaints! Has been around for ages, has a great feeling of wellbeing about the place.

Theatre503

503 Battersea Park Rd, London SW11 3BW, UK – 020 7978 7040

Not the comfiest, but certainly one of the most important theatres in London, some fantastic social theatre and demonstrates again and again the importance of Theatre to the community. Also above a great pub...

I went to see Scrooge and the Seven Dwarves. It was a fantastic show for young and old. It was interactive, funny, and kept the audience involved. I did not know what to expect going into the show, but I was beyond pleased when I left. The theatre is above a pub which is perfect for before and after the show. If you are in the mood for something other than pub food there is a a nice Thai restaurant across the street, Bangkok Bay.
