BFI Southbank information
Tucked almost out of sight under the arches of Waterloo Bridge is the British Film Institute, containing four cinemas that screen thousands of films each year (mostly art house), a gallery devoted to the moving image and the mediatheque, where you watch film and TV highlights from the BFI National Archive.
There’s also a film store for books and DVDs, a restaurant and a gorgeous cafe. Largely a repertory or art-house theatre, the BFI runs regular retrospectives and is the major venue for the BFI London Film Festival , which screens some 300 films from around the world in October every year. Film-goers aged 16 to 25 can sign up and get tickets, when available, for just £3.
