Many of London's largest cinemas are centred around Leicester Square and are the scene for many glitzy film premieres. Film buffs visiting London can enjoy a feast of cinematic delights from the latest Hollywood blockbusters to the best in European classics. The cinemas tend to house a number of large screens with the latest in surround sound and comfortable seating. They also screen the very latest big picture releases. Entrance fees can be expensive, compared to cinemas away from the West End, although many offer concessionary rates and tend to be cheaper for weekday afternoon showings. It is often advisable to book tickets in advance for popular films showing at peak times. Weekly film listings, times of films and cinema contact details can be found in Timeout magazine.

Gate Cinema
The Gate was converted from a coffee palace in 1910 and was opened as The Electric Palace in 1911. The seating capacity was 480 including 200 customers who paid half price to stand. The Gate was closed in 1984 and reopened in 1985 after extensive refurbishment. The Gate is a single screen cinema and is one of the premiere art-house venues in the country. This is one of Londonís favourite independent cinemas. The cinema itself has built a reputation over many years of introducing films to the public. Its reputation and location gives it the priceless flexibility of being able to handle specialist films or more major films by established directors
