Our top 3 Cinema with EV charging points

Introducing the coolest independent UK cinemas and their closest charging points. For those who see the bigger picture 

Independent cinemas are on trend. While multiplex chains are all much of a muchness, indie cinemas are unique and quirky, packed full of history. Whether you’re a cinephile or are just looking for a darn good night out, why not catch a motion picture at one of these distinctive, offbeat and downright stylish venues?



First opened in December 1909, the Electric is now the oldest working cinema in the country. Restored to its 1930s Art Deco look in 2004, the cinema is also one of the quirkiest. They don’t sell popcorn as it’s too messy, but do offer sofas, waiter service and an absinthe fountain (for those that aren’t driving!).
