What we seem to lacking in our glorious SE1 is a cinema. Anyone know where the nearest one easily accessible by public transport is?

Surrey Quays via 188 bus is convenient, if not the most enticing multiplex in the world.

17 mins from Elephant to the West End on the 12 bus, then take your pick.

Surrey Quays.

No substitute for a mainstream cinema, but don't forget the Elefest and Tate Modern Community Film Club (next Monday: Scrooge) as opportunities to see classic films locally.

I often go to the Barbican, specially on Mondays when all tickets are only 5. The movie selection is limited (only 2/3 screens) but they show decent movies. I went to see Mrs Henderson presents yesterday....
I use this link to find what's on at the movies:

I too saw Mrs Henderson Presents. Peckham Multiplex is close by and is the cheapest cinema I've ever seen - 3.99 a ticket. They dont seem to mind people taking in their own food either.

I have just noticed that this week there is a film festival at the College Of Communication at the Elephant and Castle. It's all free and you can read more information on:

Perhaps the lovely new Unicorn Theatre on Tooley Street will/ could be persuaded to show films when there are no plays on?

Now that I'm no longer entitled to student discounts, I don't bother with the West End cinemas any more - the ticket prices are truely shocking! I'd rather pay about the same or a little more and get a bargain ticket to a musical or play.

Peckham Multiplex ( at 3.99 a pop is the way to go if Peckham doesn't scare you too much. I'm sure only a year ago the tickets were 2.99, then went up to 3.50 in the summer. It's still very cheap though! And surprisingly the cinema isn't run down or unpleasent.

There's also Morrisons just behind the cinema for drinks and snacks if After Eight McFlurrys don't float your boat.
