Featuring a cast of lovers, psychopaths, fools and rebels, the new programme for the Cellar Door Sunday Film Afternoon is here. Come drape yourself over a bar stool or snuggle upon the banquette, order a cocktail and watch old and new classics in the loving embrace of London’s most intimate cinema. Every show features a cult classic film and a silent short accompanied by a live piano performance, an inclusive themed cocktail and, of course, lashings of free popcorn.

Great fun - cosy place to watch a film! Piano accompaniment was spot on! Visited Cellar Door on 2017-01-29

We had a magical time. Wonderful, cosy atmosphere and really enjoyed the piano playing. Free drink and unlimited popcorn were the cherry on the top, although I was confused when we came in and were told that we can't have a cocktail (even though the description of the event says that we will get an "inclusive themed cocktail"). What also disappointed me a little is that even though we were the first ones there, we weren't allowed to choose our place to sit and were sat at the least comfortable place. Other than that it was fabulous and the organiser always tried to make sure we got enough popcorn and drinks. Visited Cellar Door on 2016-12-18

Great experience, with a free drink and unlimited popcorn included. The live music accompanied short was great fun and the space was different and unexpected. It really is a tiny venue, but all the more filled with atmosphere for it. Get there early to get a good seat - there aren't many! Visited Cellar Door on 2016-12-18

Went to cellar door for Valentine's evening. Was a cosy/intimate atmosphere, nice drinks and lots of popcorn. The seat were arranged well but maybe could do with some readjustments for a more cinematic view. Overall a pleasant evening! Visited Cellar Door on 2016-02-14
