World premiere for nanny McPhee at the first London Film Day

Emma Thompson in Nanny McPhee

Sunday 21 March will see 15 simultaneous world premieres at suburban cinemas across the capital from Wood Green and Wandsworth to (stretching the definition of London somewhat) Romford and Croydon.

Thompson also reprises her role as the officious magical nanny.
