David and Victoria Beckham hired out the whole of the Electric cinema in Notting Hill yesterday (18.02.13) to celebrate their youngest son Cruz’s upcoming eighth birthday.

Cruz, mum and dad and their three other children – Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10 and 19-month-old Harper – attended the Portobello Road cinema along with extended family members including David’s mother Sandra and sister Joanne ahead of Cruz turning eight on Wednesday (20.02.13).

The group enjoyed a meal in the Electric’s American-style diner, before sitting down to watch a movie together, with the building closed off to the public.

Earlier in the day, David, 37, took the children out alone and they were seen practicing their football skills in a local park – though little Harper was left in tears after taking a tumble on the grass and had to be comforted by her famous father and elder brother Brooklyn.

Cruz seemed most keen to show off his skills and played alone while the rest of his siblings and his father took time out from the game.

Afterwards, the group had time to change their outfits for partywear ahead of Cruz’s bash, which saw the birthday boy don an American sports-style jacket emblazoned with the word ‘London’ teamed with smart black jeans.
