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 £7 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…

For his directorial debut Andy Serkis gets as far as possible from a monkey suit*, instead presenting the inspiring true story of Robin and Diana Cavendish (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy), a courageous couple who refuse to accept that life is over when medical science says, 'done here'. Interrupting a rather glittering life, Robin is struck down by polio at the age of 28 and given only a few months to live, and that as a quadraplegic. With the help of Diana's twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and... More info

A sensual and transcendent tale of love and intimacy, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. It's1983 in northern Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family's villa playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio's sophistication suggests great maturity, but there is much still innocent and unformed about him.  When Oliver (Armie Hammer), a doctoral intern,... More info

Those of us who thrilled to the magic director Sean Baker achieved with a micro-budget and an IPhone in Tangerine know to expect something extraordinary from this, his follow-on.  Again he has chosen to focus on people living at the margins - particularly, in this case, a trio of exuberant kids - finding grace, joy and humour where others wouldn't stop to look.

LWL says:  "Even though the world of this film consists of outstretched carparks, giant dumpsters,... More info

Roll the introductory text...episode VIII, aka The Last Jedi, is coming soon!  Little is known for certain apart from the fact that Rey, introduced in episode VII (The Force Awakens), continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker.  And, maybe, Luke has gone to the dark side...  The trailer below holds clues, and readers of Star Wars runes also suggest the positions of characters on the poster art work also reveal much.  Some of us will simply revel in...
