The holidays are in full swing so why not visit a local cinema and catch the latest movies in Notting Hill's Coronet Cinema, the Electric Cinema and Gate Cinema.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
The last installment and the second part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows continues its run at the Coronet, as we see Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his two best friends Hermoine (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) hunt down and destory Lord Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes) remaining Horcruxes - objects that contain a part of his soul, keeping him immortal - before culminating into the climatic Battle of Hogwarts school.
It's best to visit the Coronet on Tuesdays when all films are £3.50. If you're a student, take advantage of their Monday student nights where prices too, are £3.50. Book early though, because those tickets sell out fast.
Other films showing: Tree of Life, The Big Picture & Bridesmaids.

While the Electric is also showing Harry Potter (with the additional 3D screenings running throughout the week), they're also showing sci-fi movie Super 8. This mysterious adventure takes place in Ohio, where a group of films attempt to make an amatuer zombie film using a super 8 camera. Instead, they witness a train crash, which starts a chain of strange and mind-boggling events.
Other films showing: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2D and 3D).

Another acclaimed Anime coming to you from Japan; Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the director who brought you Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, directs Arreitty. In this animated fantasy, we follow a young girl named Arrietty, who's part of a group of tiny people - measuring only 10cm - who lives with her family beneath the floorboards of a mansion unknown to the owners above.
