Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in Behind the Candelabra

The first month’s programme of films at the brand new Errol Flynn Filmhouse has just been announced, revealing that the inaugural public screening, on Friday 21 June, will be the period drama Summer In February, a deeply moving love story played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast and the approaching shadow of The Great War, starring Dominic Cooper (My Week With Marilyn), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey). In the first week there will also be the opportunity to see The Place Beyond The Pines, a thrilling film starring Ryan Gosling as stunt motorcyclist Luke, who is forced to turn to a dangerous life of crime as a way of providing for his lover, Eva Mendes, and their baby when they fall upon hard times. The line up also includes the splendid, haunting French film Thérèse Desqueyroux, featuring Audrey Tatou (Amélie, Dirty Pretty Things) as a free-spirited wife trapped in a loveless marriage, whose actions have tragic consequences.

Also programmed for the weeks ahead are Steven Soderbergh’s Behind The Candelabra, the story of Liberace and his young lover Scott Thorson, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, and Baz Luhrmann’s new version of The Great Gatsby, with Leonardo DiCaprio as the maverick millionaire of F Scott Fitzgerald’s jazz era novel. Audiences can also look forward to screenings of the National Theatre’s acclaimed stage production of The Audience, starring Helen Mirren, documentaries on The Stone Roses and composer Benjamin Britten, and much, much more. Go to the What’s On pages for full details of films scheduled up till 25 July.
