What with the huge number of screens and films on show in London, choosing a film to go and see can be a frustrating game.

LondonNet tries to make that process as straightforward as possible, without cutting corners on the range of our coverage, so you'll find quick access to everything from the latest Hollywood blockbusters to obscure art movies.

We were the first to offer a comprehensive, free listings guide to London cinema, but try not to let that boast get in the way of improving things and have done so over the years, often thanks to reader feedback. More of that is always welcome.

Cinema listings are updated first on Tuesdays, about as early as you can get, with further updates coming throughout the week.
