A very modern 'Spoons' shop conversion, with a more rugged industrial designer feel than their older styles. The bar is in the larger left side, with the adjoining room housing the kitchen and more used for eating. A fair range of ales alongside the usual suspects; the sampled Titanic Black Ice was in very good form.

The name of this Wetherspoons pub close to Waterloo station, suggests that it will be one of the company's fine cinema conversions, but unfortunately the name only reflects the fact that a cinema was built on this spot back in 1913. The cinema was eventually converted to Pearson's department store in the 1960's, so what you find now is a rather typical shop conversion, split into two distinct sections with some cinema themed bits dotted around to confuse the matter further. The entrance takes you into the left hand section of the pub with the servery along the left hand wall. The bar has a surreal back decorated in day-go mottled colours which really catches the eye on entry. The room is rectangular in shape with a few brick pillars throughout which nicely break up the sightlines. High tables and stools run throughout the centre of the room with standard seating and a few large benches to the front under large shop-style windows, whilst the rear section of the room offers comfier lounge furniture and a view of the open kitchen. The whole room has a slightly industrial feel to it, with big girders crossing the ceiling and various pipes and vents on show. The second room to the right is a narrower version of the main area with carpet throughout and a lot of standard chairs and benches. The left hand wall is exposed brick whilst to the right there is a weird display that looks like something from a builder's merchants, consisting of various different building materials set against each other. Cinema themed pictures are on display along with some large film reels and some fake cogs. The main bar was pretty busy on my very late Wednesday evening visit, but I almost had the side room to myself.
There were three 'Spoons regulars and four guest ales on the bar when I arrived, along with two Coming Soon clips and an unused pump. I tried a pint of the Big Bog Peat Bog Porter for £2.09, which was absolutely sublime and slipped down very nicely as my final pint of the day.
I seem to have had a bit more luck on the beer and clientele front than the previous reviewer and have to say that despite being a shop conversion, I left the place with a favourable impression. This isn't one of the chain's top pubs, but it seems to do the basics well enough and certainly looked popular with the locals. You could come to Waterloo and spend all your time in micropubs, but this solid Wetherspoons makes a pleasant diversion and I'm glad I found the time to stop by.

This gets its name from a cinema that used to be here before the furniture shop that was here before Wetherspoon turned up. Inside it looks like it was once two shops with the bar area in the left hand one and the dining area in the right. There is some exposed brickwork and a load of tatty looking old film reels on one wall. I thought the whole place had a half finished look rather like a London Antic pub. There was a table of young shrieking Harpies near me who were playing each other rubbish music tracks from their phones and shrieking along to it. I noticed they all had leg attire that was ripped at the knee, a fashion statement I intend to follow next time I fall over after too many wine gums.
The beer choice from the ten hand pumps was pathetic with two unused, three available soon, the JDW Trio Of Doom, Vale Gravitas and Hanlon's Firefly.
I went for the Gravitas which wasn't too clear or that good.
I thought this one was hopeless.
