CINEMA: Everyman on the Corner

After a recent rainy Sunday afternoon movie we decided that this is quite possibly our favourite cinema in London. It’s tiny – just 32 seats – and so laidback that once you’ve bought tickets online, you simply show up, order a cocktail and wait for the nice young usher to stand up and personally introduce the film. Charming; and not a single person chatting or munching, at least on our visit. Catch it before it closes this summer (exact date TBC) to make way for the big Everyman opening in the autumn. Will it be quite as lovely? Only time will tell. Showing this weekend are Beauty And The Beast and Personal Shopper. Tickets here. Handyside Street N1C

ART: Nous Vous at House of Illustration

Colourful: the current show. Photo: PR

A Hackney-based collective has just finished a six-month residency at the Granary Square gallery, actively engaging with visitors, running workshops and encouraging the public to help contribute ideas. Their residency explores the nature of collaboration, under the theme of ‘Working Together’, examining an alternative to the usually solo pursuit of illustration with drawings, collages, paintings and prints. Open daily until 11th June 2017. More info. 2 Granary Square N1C

EXHIBITION: Wellcome Collection

This museum and gallery is a realtime delight for the curious-mind-type-of-person. Current show is Making Nature: How We See Animals, kicking off a year-long exploration into “our relationship with nature”. But did you also know the restaurant is open late (till 10pm) on Thursdays for dinner (and First Fridays?) A good option for a cosy date or special meal. Open daily except Mon. Show ends 21st May. More info. 183 Euston Rd NW1
