There are many cinemas and cinema clubs in London. Some cinemas show lots of comedies and long epic films. Other cinemas show a large number of continental films or films for young people. If you want to know which films are on, there are many publications to help you. Any daily newspaper will have a short list of films and shows. One of the newspapers, which is on sale in the middle of the day, gives the best list of films and the time they begin.
Some cinemas show films in the afternoon, early evening and late evening. Others have continuos programmes from about two o’clock in the afternoon. Sometimes you want to go to a film which is very popular. But you can’t get to the cinema early enough to buy the tickets. In that case you can buy them in most large stores and hotels.
