Originally the National Film Theatre, the Southbank Centre BFI is the perfect film buff's cinema, with three screens showing 2000 films a year ranging from classics to independent movies as well as gala openings. It's also the heart of London's many film festivals, and the place to go to see obscure arts films, classics, and seasons of works by great directors. Each year the BFI Southbank hosts The Times Film Festival as well as the annual Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. The on-site Mediatheque also gives visitors and film-lovers the chance to access hundreds of films and TV titles from the BFI National Archive, absolutely free. Beyond the films, the BFI Southbank also houses a gallery space which showcases works by leading UK and international artists, and there are two bars and a café.
