July season now on sale
As we move further into summer, our July programme takes you to exotic locations around the world – from the French Rivieira to the Amazon jungle.
Season highlights include the fantasy portmanteau Tale Of Tales, award-winning French drama The Measure Of A Man and British comedy Adult Life Skills. We also present the big screen debuts of both the Almeida Theatre with their production of Richard III, and popular television comedy Absolutely Fabulous.
Our Under The Radar segment showcases some exciting new World Cinema releases, including our Q-Film screening The Girl King and Gianfranco Rosi’s acclaimed exploration of the migrant crisis in Fire At Sea. Penelope Cruz stars in Spanish auteur Julio Medem’s drama Ma Ma and Notes On Blindness presents a through-provoking look at sight loss, as told though the audio recordings of theologian John Hull.
There is a summer vacation theme to our Classics selection as we screen Audrey Hepburn’s Roman Holiday and Jacques Tati’s 1953 comedy Mr. Hulot’s Holiday. As the acclaimed director celebrates his 80th birthday, we will also be screening Ken Loach’s debut feature Poor Cow, starring Carol White and Terence Stamp. With our inaugural screening receiving a wonderful reception, we are delighted to present another Dementia-Friendly Screening – this time with beloved musical The Wizard Of Oz. This screening is open to all but we extend an especially warm welcome to those living with dementia and their carers – see our website for more details.
The Wimbledon Finals return to our screen – enjoy the BBC coverage from the comfort of the cinema, complete with a welcome glass of fizz, classic smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches and the traditional strawberries and cream. Other events include further chances to watch the sold out screenings of the RSC’s Hamlet and Branagh Theatre’s Romeo And Juliet, as well as an exploration of the work of Leonardo da Vinci in the latest Discover Arts feature.
As we round up our Studio Ghibli retrospective, we also screen their new feature When Marnie Was There. Other new season highlights include real time thriller Money Monster, Elvis & Nixon and animated adventure The Secret Life Of Pets.
