Re: Special Report — Inside London (Variety, Sept. 27-Oct. 3)

The National Film Theater is not, and never has been, under Blackfriars Bridge. I have been a member of the NFT for many years and, apart from a short time on Millbank many years ago, it has always been situated under Waterloo Bridge along with the rest of the entertainment venues there.

In addition, the comment about weekday matinees is incorrect. If the NFT introduces these it will not be for the first time. Until a year or so ago, weekday matinees were a regular feature at the NFT and members have been campaigning for their return ever since.
