Cinematic London

It’s not just Paris that basks in the silver-screen glow (see p54) – London’s streets are film-crew favourites and many cinemas in the capital are sights in their own right.

Experiences

CURZON SOHO

This West End oldie has a fantastic lineup featuring the best indie films, plus shorts and mini-festivals. Regular Q&As with directors draw film enthusiasts, too. It’s possible to make a night of it at the Curzon, thanks to the Konditor & Cook café upstairs (the cakes are a highlight) and an ultra-comfortable bar (curzoncinemas.com; 99 Shaftesbury Ave; tickets from £10.50).

BFI SOUTHBANK

Tucked under Waterloo Bridge is the British Film Institute, with four cinemas that screen thousands of films each year (mostly arthouse), a gallery devoted to the moving image and the mediatheque, where you can watch film and TV highlights from the BFI National Archive. It also has a film store for books and DVDs, a restaurant and a gorgeous café (bfi.org.uk; Belvedere Rd; 9.45am–11pm; tickets from £7.45).

About Lonely Planet Traveller (UK)

In the April issue… Join us as we celebrate the 100th issue of the magazine, and look forward to the next hundred. For the occasion, we've found a unique destination for our Great Escape – Madagascar, an island that is almost a world in itself. Other features take in film directors' favourite shooting spots in Paris; the Bay Area of California on the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love; and Lisbon, a city best understood through the Portuguese emotion of 'saudade'. Plus, discover our magazine staff's most memorable moments in putting together 100 issues, and much more
