The Southbank Centre was created in the 1960s, after the Festival of Britain in 1951 inspired renewed interest in the arts scene in the United Kingdom. The center is one of the top cultural venues in the city, and typifies 1960s architecture. The Southbank Centre is made up of the Royal National Theatre (comprising the Olivier, Lyttelton and Cottesloe theaters), and the National Film Theatre which shows the cream of international art-house films. The South Bank district is home to many other galleries and attractions.
