SCREEN GUIDE DAILY: Films in London today 15.07.18

RADIANT CIRCUS is your handcrafted guide to London’s DIY, indie & alternative movie nights, film events & gallery screenings. Our DAILY UPDATE helps you find great films in London today*.

Find films in London today by: SINGLE-O EXHIBITS (one-off attractions) // MUSEUM SHOWS (several exhibits under one roof – seasons & festivals) // GRIND SHOWS (a selection of regular runs).


Featured attraction: EX LIBRIS: THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY (15 JUL, various venues/times – see listings): “A film about a library may not sound an enticing prospect but Wiseman is showing an entire world in microcosm. A sense of idealism runs through every frame of the film.” – Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent.
