Gravity(12A)

Starring: Judi Dench, Steve Coogan

Coogan takes on a serious role as journalist Martin Sixsmith who accompanies an Irish pensioner in search of the toddler taken away from her by Catholic nuns. Based on a true story.



The usually rather silly Coogan is surprisingly good in this role. It’s a serious and somewhat depressing subject matter, but glimmers of his innate wit, combined with Dench’s superlative acting, make this an uplifting film.

Richard II (12A)

Starring: David Tennant

David Tennant plays the king ordained by God to lead his people, but also a man of many weaknesses.

This is the first ever live cinema broadcast from the Royal Shakespeare Company stage. Show on Thursday at 8pm only.

Philomena (12A)



Starring: George Clooney, Sandra Bullock

Rookie astronaut Dr Ryan Stone (Bullock) is cut loose and rocketing through space after an accident at a space station. Matt Kowalski (Clooney) talks her through the rescue attempt.

Said to be the most riveting, realistic and scary sci-fi movie for years. The CGI effects shot at Pinewood Studios are second-to-none.



Bolshoi: Le Corsaire (TBC)

Starring: the cast of the Bolshoi Ballet

In the marketplace of Adrianople, the beautiful Medora is sold to a slave dealer, but a pirate hidden in the crowd decides to kidnap her.



This reworking of the original ballet with new choreography is an exotic and lavish production.
