You're early.

We aren’t quite ready for you, we’re still in BETA. We will be tinkering and getting things sorted until about October, when the full glory of Flicks will be ready and present.

Until then movie fan, until then.

Contact & About

The Institut Français opened in 1939, with the Ciné Lumière arriving in 1998 to celebrate French, European and world cinema. One of London’s most-loved cinemas, the Lumière also ranks among the most stylish thanks to the art-deco Institut, which also houses a multimedia library, reading room, children’s activities and more. Reopened in 2009 by Catherine Deneuve, the main theatre seats 226 in comfort and style, while the Lumière II – opened in 2019 – seats 34. Top-notch programming includes new releases, a broad range of CinéFamilies screenings for parents/carers and children of all ages, and various progressive festivals, with recent entries ranging from Women Shaping the World to a celebration of Simone Signoret and a climate change-themed season.
