BFI Southbank (formally known as the National Film Theatre) is hidden away in a concrete cove with two cinemas, a café and a shop. It shows a broad range of British, international and foreign language films, and is the focus of the annual London Film Festival every November.

If you don’t like all the art-house movies, then you can always catch one of their frequent film premières – where, if you’re really lucky, you’ll also catch the director or movie-star introducing the piece with a short talk. Recent stars have included Clint Eastwood and Cate Blanchett.
