As well as being Qbic residents’ local cinema, Genesis recently underwent restoration by a film set designer and a film engineer. The tickets are cheap and the seats are comfy. The bar upstairs is good for soft, alcoholic, sweet or savoury. The ‘CroDoughs’ from nearby 100-year-old bakery Rinkoffs are a real treat, and its cocktails are the perfect tonic for a post-work wind down. As well as big blockbuster movies, Genesis screens an excellent selection of independent and foreign titles for film buffs.
