One of the seven arts is a relative late addition: film. While you may see stars at Café Royal, you are guaranteed to see them—at least on screen—at the London Film Museum near Covent Garden, a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel. Currently the museum’s exhibition space is dedicated to perhaps the most famous British character on screen: Bond, James Bond. The exhibit includes the largest collection of James Bond vehicles ever on display at one time. If you are interested in more cerebral cinematic offerings, you may want to head to the British Film Institute Southbank. The four-screen venue shows over 2,000 films each year. This season there is a series devoted to the evolution of the British TV documentary and a program of screenings of classic films about love divided into three themes (the Power of Love, Fools for Love, and Fatal Attractions).
