The BFI was built on during the Festival of Britain in 1951. Original named the National Film Theatre, it occupied a temporary building during the festival before finding a permanent home under Waterloo in 1957. Following an enlargement in 2007, it was renamed BFI Southbank.
The BFI Southbank is the number one venue for film and television in the UK, with over 70 years of unrivalled experience presenting and celebrating moving image. Their four cinema spaces can accommodate up to 450 guests and they have a range of stylish, flexible reception spaces, any of which can be paired with a screen according to your needs.
