Top Cinemas to Visit in London to Watch English Films

If you are going to study English in the UK, watching English films is a brilliant way to practice your language skills. At Wimbledon School of English, we provide a film library for students who want to improve their listening skills. However, if you have chosen to study English in London you’ll definitely want to see as much of the city as possible! Here’s a list of the best cinemas for students who are studying English courses in London.

Curzon Bloomsbury
Formerly The Renoir, the Curzon Bloomsbury shows the most exciting and inspirational arthouse films and documentaries from around the globe. Curzon Bloomsbury also takes part in the National Theatre Live scheme so you can watch exceptional British theatre without breaking the bank!

Screen on the Green
Screen on the Green is part of the Everyman Cinema chain which means moviegoers can enjoy sofas, blankets and table service – the perfect cinema for date night!

Rich Mix
Rich Mix is the perfect name for this venue which not only shows films and documentaries but also comedy, dance, theatre, spoken word and music!

Regent Street Cinema
Here’s one for the history buffs - Regent Street Cinema was the first venue in the UK to show moving pictures to paying customers! It was closed in the 1980s but has recently been refurbished, making it the perfect mix of heritage and modernity.

Electric Notting Hill
Situated in the Notting Hill district of West London, the Electric offers armchairs, footstools, and cashmere blankets to make sure that their viewers are as cosy as possible. If that doesn’t sound comfy enough, why not book one of the front-row beds for the ultimate viewing experience?
