BFI Southbank (National Film Theatre)


BFI Southbank under Waterloo Bridge

Location – Belvedere Road, South Bank, London SE1 8XT

The National Film Theatre was initially part of the Festival of Britain in 1951 in a temporary building before it was moved to its present site in 1957.
In 2007 the National Film Theatre was repackaged as BFI Southbank taking over the premises that had been used by Museum of Moving Image.
Under the auspices of the BFI (British Film Institute), the complex has now become much more of a cultural hub dedicated to Film.

As well as the three separate auditorium, it now includes a studio, a Médiathèque,  a gallery space, shop,  bar and restaurant.


Reuben Library

The BFI Reuben Library and Mediatheque is free to all who wish to  browse the extensive collections and the shop is renown for its wide selection of Film related books.
