Carers & Babies

Every Monday morning approaching 11:00 a convoy of prams and buggies can be tracked making its way determinedly up the Chamberlayne Road.  The attraction?  The chance to mimic adult behaviour, catching the current cinema releases with other adults, in our dedicated Carers & Babies screenings.  Swop feeding tips and compare junior milestones - or determinedly don’t talk ‘baby talk’ – for a couple of hours respite in our totally baby-friendly zone. 

Not only are the lights low, so is the ticket price at £5 per adult (babies free). Our Bruce Munro light installation is said to have a powerfully calming effect on our little guests, leading some to propose that our “scream screen” shows are the quietest in the country…

A young man deals with his dysfunctional home life and comes of age in Miami during the "War on Drugs" era. The story of his struggle to find himself is told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love while grappling with his own sexuality.

"To describe Moonlight, Barry Jenkins’s second feature, as a movie about growing up poor, black and gay would be accurate enough. It would also not be wrong to call it a movie... More info

"Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe are Katherine Jackson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, a trio of Nasa scientists who each played their part in sending astronaut John Glenn (the first American to orbit the Earth) into space in 1962. These three are fun, fast-talking and fabulously coiffed (thanks to costume designer Renee Ehrlich Kalfus). They’re also African American women, which perhaps explains why this nugget of history has remained untold until now. Sure, some of it... More info

Paul Verhoeven. Think Basic Instinct, Starship Trooper and Show Girls, and you'll know that you will be provoked, challenged, and ultimately exhilarated by this already notorious movie.  

The film opens mid violent rape, from the point of view of an inscrutable cat.  Afterwards Michelle (Isabelle Huppert) appears to expunge the experience from her life as if she's never heard the word 'victim'.  She's already a piece of work:  she designs exploitative video... More info

In what feels like a bit of a loop, director Olivier Assayas once again directs Kristen Stewart in the role of gofer to a demanding older woman, as in their previous, The Clouds of Sils Maria.  Continuing this fruitful partnership, here Maureen (Stewart) is stylist for a celebrity and spends her days haunting Parisian fashion houses while she spends her nights haunting the house in which her twin brother recently died. The siblings shared a belief in the occult and vowed that... More info

"Twelve angry men and one tough 'bird' walk into a dilapidated Boston warehouse and proceed to blast the building and one another to smithereens in Free Fire, a dizzyingly choreographed — and unexpectedly comedic — shoot-’em-up in which the body count hits double digits, while the bullet count proves downright impossible to fathom. A virtuoso feat of indiscriminate gunplay from director Ben Wheatley — who is, without a doubt, the most exciting thing to hit British genre cinema since Guy... More info

In 1979 James Baldwin proposed a project to his agent, a revolutionary account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.  At the time of his death in 1987 he had only completed thirty pages of the manuscript. In this incendiary documentary, director Raoul Peck completes the book Baldwin didn't finish. The narration (voiced by Samuel Jackson) is all from Baldwin's own words, taken from letters, essays and public... More info

In a tender adaptation of Julian Barnes' best selling novel, Tony Webster (Jim Broadbent) leads a reclusive and quiet existence until long buried secrets from his past force him to face the flawed recollections of his younger self, the truth about his first love (Charlotte Rampling), and the devastating consequences of decisions made a lifetime ago.  With all credit to the director (Batra, The Lunchbox), the film is consistently gripping even as it limns the literary themes of the...
