One person wrote: "Sounds like introvert heaven! I'm gonna try this."

Another said: "This is so cool! Never heard of this place before."

A third said: "This place is one of the best haunts in London."

The website states: "Explore highlights from the world’s greatest film and TV archive in BFI Southbank’s free digital viewing space.

" It’s free and everyone’s welcome – whether you’re studying, researching or just want to be entertained."

They also explain that many of the films there can't be watched at home, so makes a great excuse to visit.

They explain: "New titles are added regularly, thanks to National Lottery funding, which supports our digitisation of film and TV material at risk of being lost or forgotten.

"We can’t make most of these titles available to watch at home due to rights restrictions, so the only way to access the full range of remarkable stories is to visit the Mediatheque in person."
