A detailed list of the best free films in London in January
By Manolis Zografakis
We love free films, we really do, and we know that you love them too! That’s why every month, I round up the best free film events happening in London, from DIY film clubs showing free films in small pubs, cafes or restaurants and pop-up venues, to major free film festivals and free film screenings in cinemas across London. So, for indoor and outdoor free screenings in London just bookmark this page and look no further.
Every month there is an endless list of free films that take place in London. That means that you could find a free film screening close to where you live almost every day! Most of the films have a free entrance, but for some of them you will need to book your place in advance.
The page is updated on a weekly basis so don’t forget to check it out at least once per week. See below a schedule of free movies/films/screenings that London has to offer and click on the titles to find out more information on venues and times. Don’t forget to also check out our blog post with the cheapest cinemas in London.
