Cinema and Film

Haringey has three large multiplex cinemas, two in Wood Green and one in Muswell Hill.

Just outside the borough sits the historic independent Phoenix cinema - one of the oldest purpose-built continuously operating cinemas in the country.

The latest addition to cinemas in our borough is the long-awaited, warmly-received Arthouse Crouch End. It opened in 2014.

The Phoenix Cinema is an independent cinema owned and run by a charitable trust. Quite possibly the oldest surviving purpose-built cinema in London, the Phoenix is renowned for its varied film and repertory programme, with many special and community events. This historic building with Edwardian and art deco features was built in 1910 and is now Grade II listed. Having recently benefited from Heritage Lottery Funding, the Phoenix has been restored and refitted to celebrate its centenary, offering an experience to savour.
