Local resident

"The Lexi Cinema on Chamberlayne Road - a beautiful boutique cinema with a real community feel, which also donates all its profits to charity. It's staffed by local volunteers, sells great wine, and has one of the most eclectic programmes of any cinema in London! In the summer, they also do outdoor cinema in the local parks..."
