Winter Film in South Bank

January 24th, 2018 | by Jennifer Edwards

Winter Film in South Bank

The bitter January and February cold can leave many of us feeling blue - which is why the power of cinema, with its ability to transport you into another world, from the comfortable, warm red velvet seat of a cinema, is so indispensable this time of year. With the Oscars season upon us and a whole host of truly great films out this season, we won't need to work hard to convince you to step into one of South Bank's cinemas and see some great film. 

  • The Post

    Steven Spielberg marshals an all-star cast including Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep for ‘The Post’, an incredible true story about fighting for the truth at all costs.The film chronicles the efforts of the Washington Post’s publisher and editor to get the Pentagon Papers – classified documents about a US government cover-up of its actions in Vietnam – published.

    The cover-up had spanned the tenures of four Presidents, and it spurred Kay Graham, America’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee, the paper’s editor, to join an unprecedented battle between journalists and the government.

    Three movie legends in one film...how could you not go and see it? The intimate 56 seat screening room at Mondrian London is the perfect choice to satisfy both the film buff and the design lover.  With 4K digital projection, Dolby 7.1 surround sound and luxurious seating, you can even order a glass of prosecco or some posh popcorn before the film - to be enjoyed with decadence.

    They spent three years behind walls, trying to break out. Now they need to break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD-controlled labyrinth that may be the deadliest maze of all. And Thomas will be faced with a terrible choice: he can save his friends, or he can save everyone else.

  • Ingmar Bergman Season

    This comprehensive, three-month season marks the centenary of the birth of Ingmar Bergman, one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

    Featuring extended runs of both Persona - Bergman’s modernist masterpiece, which explores the volatile relationship between an actress and her nurse - and The Touch - in which a happily-married woman embarks on a passionate love affair - the season is split into two parts.

    Part 1 (January) focuses on Bergman’s work in film and television; a fearless, peerless explorer of human psychology, these films highlight his abiding preoccupations. Part 2, which continues in February, then shifts to his work involving mortality, namely how we cope with the messy complexity of life its self.

  • John Hurt Season

    Join BFI Southbank as they showcase and celebrate the life and works of one of Britain's finest and best-loved actors.

    One year after his passing, BFI Southbank honour John Hurt with a month-long season that aims to celebrate the breadth of his amazing career. While it's impossible to show and cover every single one of our favourite John Hurt titles in one season, BFI Southbank have given it a good go.

    With over 200 credits in film and TV, his body of work featured roles in all genres, and every project he worked on was lifted by his performance. Here was an actor able to inhabit characters with integrity and emotional honesty.

  • Animation 2018

    Throughout 2018 celebrate animation in all its guises, from puppetry and stop-motion to anime and CGI, with this year-long season at BFI Southbank.

    Throughout the year BFI Southbank will be showcasing the craft and creativity of animation in all its forms and genres, from cut-outs, puppetry and stop-motion to anime and CGI. While British animation will be at the heart of this story, the season will also delve into international perspectives and invite animators to present their work in person.

    There will be previews, re-releases and panel discussions all designed to illustrate why this unique art form can achieve what its live-action counterpart can’t, and why, despite popular misconceptions, animation is just as much for adults as it is for children.
