The Exhibit Cinema: The Usual Suspects + Dinner
Films, food and flippin' great fun at London's smallest independent cinema
The Exhibit is London's smallest independent cinema. But, for what it lacks in size, it sure as hell makes up for in heart. With an intimate atmosphere, leather sofa seating and attached bar with garden, it really does offer the perfect silver screen experience. Choose a flick from their programme of the best contemporary and classic films, kickback in a sofa, and get ready to fall in love with cinema all over again. Near the end of The Usual Suspects, Kevin Spacey – in his Oscar-winning performance as crippled con man Roger 'Verbal' Kint – says, "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” This may be the key line in this story. The further along the movie goes, the more one realises that not everything is quite what it seems, and what began as a conventional whodunit turns into something quite different. A simply unmissable film. "The Usual Suspects is the freshest, funniest and scariest crime thriller to come along since Pulp Fiction." – Rolling Stone "An imaginative, entertaining crime mystery with plenty of nerve and vigor." – Seattle Times Sample menu: - Roast pollock and grilled tiger prawn, sautéed potatoes with chili and caper sauce - Pork belly, sweet and sour beetroot with soy glaze and wilted spinach - Truffle chicken burger, cheese, crispy onion, truffle mayonnaise and chips - Curry goat, rice and peas with coleslaw - Exhibit burger with relish, cheese and chips - Ribeye steak with garlic butter and fries (£7 supplement) - Charred harissa cauliflower, feta, pickled onions and chickpeas (v) The Exhibit Cinema is an over 21s only cinema.

"Anything but usual, Singer's movie is pretty damn near untouchable. Next to this, most other crime films feel petty."
