Professor Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in a hospital with a bullet wound to the head, a kindly female sidekick (Jones) and a whole lotta skimpily-researched exposition to do. A half-decent plot and a strong international cast make this perhaps the least disappointing of the Dan Brown adaptations.

The cinema on Portobello Road has survived two world wars, including a bombing, and a narrow escape from being turned into a bingo hall. Now over 100 years old, the beautiful arch surrounding the screen is protected by English Heritage, and a specially-designed expanding monitor ensures that the viewing experience is enhanced rather than compromised by the preserved architecture. There's spacious leather armchair seating with footstools and two-seater sofas available in the back row, and a cocktail bar open for 30 minutes before screenings. The discerning programme is a combination of art house, classic and mainstream films that have received critical acclaim.
