The BFI season of Screwball Comedies.

psThroughout January, the BFI are showering audiences with screenings of some of the best Screwball Comedies of the 30s and 40s.

This includes movies such as The Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday, Destry Rides Again, and so much more. A fantastic opportunity if you are a fan of classical Hollywood, actors such as Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn, or just interested in seeing something new.

If you are located in or around London, a BFI screening is the perfect ending to a daytrip to London. The BFI is the must-see spot for any film fanatic, boasting a wonderful library of film books, a fantastic Imax cinema with an absolutely huge screen, a brilliant little shop selling some of the best films ever made, books on both film theory and production and

film memorabilia (postcards, keyrings, etc), and some of the greatest exhibitions in film there are. The BFI is also the central spot for all that goes on in the London Film Festival each year.

There are also a few other film spots in London to visit, for instance the cinema store is one little shop I happened to stumble upon by accident and it was brilliant, selling autographs, film posters and memorabilia, and books on film.

The BFI Screwball Comedy season plays until the end of January 2013.
