Calling this a cinema is practically reductive; instead, The Electric is an experience. The theater features 65 leather armchairs with footstools and side tables, where patrons enjoy food and drink from a full menu as they watch screenings of everything from the latest art house indies to pop-culture themed marathons. There are also three two-seater sofas and six comfortable double beds (you read that right) in the front rows. Whatever option you choose, get comfortable and enjoy burgers, popcorn, wine, beer, champagne, and even cocktails during the show. Before the feature starts, or after it finishes, you can stop next door at the retro Electric Diner for home-style comfort foods.
