Probably one of the few truly independent cinemas left in London. Shortwave is nestled in the newly gentrified bosom of Bermondsey Square and is a tiny cinema (booking your tickets online is strongly recommended: the capacity of Shortwave's only screen is 52). The programme is mainly geared towards new releases and shows a good mix of commercial and indie films. The attached cafe/bar also serves a range of locally-brewed beers and snacks.
