Passengers can brush up on their knowledge of cinema by looking at a Tube map where stations have been changed to films shot at the locations.

All stations are named after films, and in some cases after studios, directors, actors and TV shows shot in the area.

Walthamstow Central on the Victoria Line is renamed An Education while Chalfont and Latimer station on the Metropolitan Line has become Lolita.

The Underground Film map charts 70 years of cinematic history in London.

The map has been produced by film and media agency Film London, BFI London Film Festival and Transport for London.

Adrian Wootton, chief executive of Film London, said: "On average there are approximately 35 crews shooting on location in the capital every day and that wealth of film-making can be seen in this wonderful Underground Film Map.

"From the obvious titles such as Bourne Ultimatum at Waterloo Station and V for Vendetta blowing up the Houses of Parliament at Westminster, to the more surprising including The Dark Knight's Batcave in Vauxhall and An Education filming in Walthamstow, this map plots out the capital's credentials as one of the world's most popular film cities."

Unlike the regular Tube map, the cinematic version cannot be picked up from a station but is on sale at the BFI at Southbank, London Transport Museum, and online from TfL.
