I love the Apollo cinema on Lower Regent Street in London. Probably for all the wrong reasons!
It doesn't always have the most comprehensive selection of films but when it does show a film you want to see you can pretty much guarantee you can see it in a not-packed-to-the-hilt auditorium on any day of the week - even Saturdays and Sundays. You can watch it in an auditorium blessedly devoid of hoards of teenages chatting through the film, which is the biggest bugbear in my life (well, almost!).
I am not sure why this is; maybe it's just tucked away from the main Leicester Square area so too far for people to walk to and maybe it's not a name people recognise so they do go but I am glad. If they did they would know it has the most comfortable cinema seats in the city. Big squashy red chairs that recline back and for which you are not charged a massive premium. A great sound system and a nice little bar/concession area.
I love it but sshh - don't tell anyone.
