The 194 (which goes down Newlands Park Road, not sure if if comes down Kirkdale) goes to Beckenham.

Also, you can get a train, which only takes 10 mins, to Brixton Ritzy from Penge East, if you live that side of Sydenham. There is also a direct bus to Brixton which you can catch opposite the Horniman, which comes from Honor Oak, I think the P4.

And doesn't Forest Hill library show the occasional film?

The 194 starts from Bell Green then goes down Newlands Park on way to Beckenham , not Kirkdale.

Lewisham is becoming very very miserable with not many reasons to live, work or visit. The fact it is the only borough without a Cinema implies something is wrong.

Does anyone know if a new Cinema will open on behalf of the Lewisham Town Regeneration project in the Lewisham Gateway and Loampit Vale area, it seems like a good place to have one has it boasts the area will compete with the likes of Bromley and Croydon due to expansion of Lewisham Shopping Centre.

Sydenham alone used to have 3 cinemas.

Not sure people nowadays are able to behave at cinemas. Talking and mobile phone use seem rife.

Its not too bad a journey getting to Cineworld o2 North Greenwich, jump on the train to Canada Water then Jubilee line, and if you go a lot its worth thinking about the unlimited card for £13.50, and dont forget Orange Wednesdays.

There is now a fully funded Sydenham Film Club: if you scroll down under Town Hall you will find confirmation + a 5 minute survey of the kinds of films we would like to see and in what way we would like to be involved.

Fantastic news!

Well, if you're going to go to the O2, why not go the whole hog and try Stratford Picturehouse, too? Just stay on the Juby for another few stops. I've done it a couple of times this year, and it takes just over half an hour - and costs £1.30 each way on Oyster if you time it right! It's only a few minutes' walk from the station, and it shows an interesting range of films.

Mind you, Beckenham Odeon's still nearer ...

The Hob in Forest Hill shows films once a month - and does mum and baby screenings too during the day (under-1s only). Email emma@edcomedy.com for what's on. This month they showed Wish You Were Here.

Thanks to some funding from Sydenham local assembly, the Sydenham Film Club will be organising regular, affordable film screenings in the area. And we’re asking local people to decide what films they want to see, when and where. To find out more, go to http://www.sydenhamfilmclub.org and do the 5 minute survey before it closes tomorrow. Please tell your friends and spread the word.
