      Disadvantages

      It's worth trying the Screen just to sample a cinema experience slightly different from the norm.

      I used to live over the road to the Screen on the Green and visited it on several occasions. This is an old-school cinema with just the one screen (and about 300 seats) and a small stall selling sweets and drinks when you get in there. The Screen shows a variety of films; mainstream, not-so-mainstream, and old classics. The films change from week to week so you can keep an eye on the retro billboard outside. The seating is slightly staggered but there is not much in the way of leg room - I'm only 5'8" and I didn't have much space. Also, if someone quite tall sits in front of you, you have pretty much had it in terms of the view because the seats are all on the same level (although maybe on a slight downward slope). The prices are pretty comparable to chain cinemas (or maybe a bit cheaper), however this cinema has a nice feel about it which you don't get in the local Vue. It is a bit like stepping back in time as this cinema has personality. You also get far less riff-raff in this cinema so if you want a more enjoyable experience with no noisy kids then this is the place for you. Location-wise you couldn't get better; it's a 5 minute walk from Angel tube station, or a 15-minute walk from Highbury and Islington tube. It's also slap-bang in the middle of Angel's bar/restaurant area so you can easily combine dinner and a movie with drinks afterwards.
