Apologies for returning to this topic yet again, but those that still find it interesting might find the mapping of the sites on the updated database an eye-opener, the sheer number of screens down Old Kent Rd, Tower br Rd and Walworth Rd for example...
and the map: (can take a little while to load, but be patient!)

Many more to find, some more to work out where they go on the map, and room for any pictures and reminiscences you might wish to share - all hints tips and errata welcome.

and now we SE1 is sorely in need of something more than the NFT.

not quite zero surely:

NFT (which you mentioned, but it's hardly a zero), 3 screens and a wide range of movies...

IMAX (worth going once even if it's not much good for regular releases)

Tate Modern - the community film club and other screenings (

St Thomas's Hospital MediCinema

And the Coronet at the Elephant & Castle flickers in to life now and again... anyone know its current status?

Fair enough, if you want the latest releases then it's across the river or down to Peckham, Clapham or Surrey Quays, so it's admittedly a zero for "NORMAL" films, but there is some projection-room life in SE1 even if you do need to work quite hard to find it. No argument about room for more though!
