Practical advice time, folks: how do I find interesting films showing in London cinemas?

I'm particularly interested in older and moderately obscure films -- the kind that will turn up over the course of a year, but that I'll miss unless I inhale a listings magazine every week.

Does there exist a website that can take a wish-list of films, and email me whenever one of them is on in London? That seems like such an obvious and potentially-profitable concept that somebody must already have built it, but I can't find it.

Relatedly, does anybody want to come see some films with me?

When you find this website, do share it.

It's worth monitoring the NFT... um... BFI Southbank. Not only do they show lots of older and more obscure films, but it's a pleasant overall experience.

I tend to go by cinema - for example, the Rio in Dalston reliably has something interesting. Borusa's suggestion is good too.

I would like to come see interesting films with you!

I'd certainly like to know when you're going to see interesting films.

oh, hi Lianna! I would have loved to, but I already have plans (meeting up with Mike Lewis). Have fun!

A great film

Have you seen the UK film 'Page Eight'? Terrific. Also, what happened to the tool link on your Panama tax haven story? It isn't working. I hope you get the info back up.
