The Lexi Cinema in Kensal Rise is an independent cinema and a local icon. It is the UK’s first social enterprise independent boutique digital cinema, meaning, it donates 100% of its profits to charity and is staffed mostly by volunteers.
While The Lexi benefits the people of Kensal Rise and other Londoners who flock there to see some great films, Q & A events and retrospectives, it also helps out in communities much further afield.

On Monday mornings, carers and babies can attend baby friendly screenings at The Lexi, where the lights are up and the sound is low. The Kids Club should not be missed, neither should kid friendly matinees over school holidays.
It’s almost worth visiting The Lexi for the bar alone, munch on gourmet popcorn and warm up with a hot chocolate with mini marshmallows. Grown ups can enjoy a great selection of wine and beer, or some fresh coffee and herbal teas. Delicious.
So hooray for local independent cinema!
