Sit back and relax as a beautiful Italian fable unfolds on screen...

Alternatively, join People Just Do Nothing 'Chabuddy G' actor, Asim Chaudhry, in a show stealing contemporary, multicultural journey to find a half-brother's eccentric dad! Sounds crazy, definitely is – It's the light-hearted film after we've had such a serious, eye-opening month of Brexit depression.
Bloody silver spoon conservatives!

McCullin

With a comprehensive retrospective on the legendary photographer now showing at Tate Britain, discover the truth behind Don McCullin’s hard-hitting and controversial images in this BAFTA-nominated documentary.

Celebrated photographer Don McCullin worked for The Sunday Times from 1966 to 1983, at a time when the newspaper was widely recognised as being at the cutting edge of international investigative photojournalism. During that period he covered wars and humanitarian disasters on virtually every continent: from civil war in Cyprus, the war in Vietnam and the man-made famine in Biafra to the plight of the homeless in swinging sixties London.
 

"A terrific and fitting tribute to one of modern history's greatest eyewitnesses"

IN FROM FRIDAY

Beloved by audiences and critics at Cannes (where it was awarded the Best Screenplay prize), Alice Rohrwacher’s beautiful, much-anticipated new film is beguiling allegory of love, loss and compassion exploring the troubled soul of Italy.

"Mesmerising. An instant classic."
--
A.O Scott, 
The  New York Times

The film tells the heart-warming story of half-brothers Omar (Antonio Aakeel) and Pete (Jack Carroll), who were raised by their Grandma after their parents were tragically killed by lions in a bizarre accident. When their beloved Gran passes away, they embark on a life-changing journey to find Omar’s birth father. What follows is a funny and touching journey of self-discovery for both boys…in Blackpool. The Choudray family represent a truly contemporary example of modern multicultural Britain, but what will the brothers make of their eccentric newfound family?

"A thoroughly likable feelgood film."

The  Guardian

CONTINUING

Us, stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband and their two children for an idyllic summer getaway.  After spending a tense beach day with their friends, Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway.
Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

"Unnerving in tone and brazenly terrifying in story; Us is the kind of movie you watch with your fingers splayed over your face."

Rudolf Nureyev, a remarkable young dancer of 22, is a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, travelling to Paris in 1961 for his first trip outside the Soviet Union. But KGB officers watch his every move, becoming increasingly suspicious of his behaviour and his friendship with the young Parisienne Clara Saint. When they finally confront Nureyev with a shocking demand, he is forced to make a heart-breaking decision, one that may change the course of his life forever and put his family and friends in terrible danger.                                                                                                       

"Fiennes' light touch textures this biopic into something exciting, genuine and naturally sexy; it's a film that stays en pointe for its entirety"
