  • showcase cinemas is quite cool, damn expensive but all cinemas are.
  • Nice Cinema, Pity the Public transort is rubbish!Not much fun waiting in the middle of nowhere at midnight for a none existent bus!
  • We got good old Showcase
  • The second largest cinema in London (apparently) is pants. Go someone else, like Surrey Quays or West India Quay unless its tuesday or wednesday when all films are only 3.50 (a bargin for london).
  • showcase is the nicest thing in beckton, cup holders and reclining seats what more could you ask for.
  • Remarkably dilapidated bowling alley next to Beckton Alps ski slope. The ski slope is currently shut, I've heard rumours that there are plans to replace it with one of those fake snow places.
  • "Where De Honey" is a sweet slippery cinema made from the carved innards of a largish bumble bee. The bee was emptied, stretched and fitted out into a major tourist attraction. Due to sponserships deals, it only shows the films of Tony Curtis.
  • Showcase Cinema (Beckton) The best cinema in the world - 14 screens all with reclining seats, arcade games and great food drinks and sweets - what more could you ask for?!?!?.
