Chaplin - The Great Londoner
Visitors can discover exciting new insights into the life and career of Charles Chaplin, the boy from the London slums who won universal fame with his screen character of the Tramp, and went on to become a Knight of the British Empire.
The exhibition tells Chaplin’s story in six main sections, evoking consecutive phases of his dramatic rise from rags to riches
We have all been saddened by the loss of Ray Harryhausen. Ray was a huge supporter of the Museum over the last few years when we all had the pleasure of working with him on his last Exhibition right here at the LFM South Bank. He will be missed greatly but fondly remembered as we continue to help promote his legacy.
Come and see the all new room dedicated to the godfather of Special Effects now open at the London Film Museum.

Our blog shares our passion for film, photography, the arts and the great artisans from whom we derive so much pleasure, and everything in between; basically an open book/blog!
The London Film Museum - South Bank
The London Film Museum is the only film museum of its kind in Great Britain, supporting the Film Industry and the talent within it. We are self supporting by way of a minimal entry price, reinvesting back into the museum and within the community, creating a number of local area initiatives that also form an important part of the school curriculum.
ABOUT LONDON FILM MUSEUM
London on Film
London has been used frequently both as a filming location and as a film setting. These have ranged from historical recreations of the Victorian London of Charles Dickens and Sherlock Holmes, to the romantic comedies of Bridget Jones's Diary and Notting Hill, by way of crime films, spy thrillers, science fiction and the "swinging London" films of the 1960s.
Because of the dominant role played by the city in the British media, the number of British films set in London is huge. It has also been used many times in American films, and often recreated on a Hollywood studio backlot.
County Hall was hailed as the “Hotel de Ville” when opened by King George V and Queen Mary in 1922 and named the official home of the local government for London. Now in the 21st century, this iconic building is a different place to be as the doors open up on some of the most exclusive private and corporate hospitality event spaces in Central London.
The ultimate London hospitality venue for corporate and private meetings, conferences, banqueting, weddings, receptions, exhibitions, live events from 5 to 1500 guests. Please explore our site to find out more.
