A gripping tale which builds suspense and nerve-frying tension without the over-the-top Hollywood formulae.  A man stranded in the Arctic after a helicopter crash must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown.

26/08/2019 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (12A)
London, 1946. Juliet (Lily James), a charismatic and free-spirited writer receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island. There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey (Michael Huisman), the rugged and intriguing farmer who wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet's growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.

FULL

09/09/2019 Stan & Ollie (15)
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly star as Laurel & Hardy in the untold story of the world’s greatest comedy act. Stan & Ollie wonderfully portrays the unique and precious partnership of the legendary duo as they set out on a tour of Britain in the twilight of their career. Whilst they face an uncertain future the charm and beauty of their performances shine through, making each other and their audiences laugh, re-connecting them with legions of adoring fans, old and new. With stunning performances from Coogan and Reilly, critics are calling Stan & Ollie ‘absolute perfection'.

16/09/2019 Fisherman's Friend (12A)
Highly acclaimed film; a fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate fish out of water as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families, who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

23/09/2019 Red Joan (12A)
The story of Joan Stanley, who was exposed as the KGB's longest-serving British spy. A Soviet and communist party sympathiser becomes employed as a British government civil servant, and gets recruited by the KGB in the mid 1930s. She successfully transfers nuclear bomb secrets to the Soviet Union (Russia), which enables them to keep up with the west in the development of atomic weapons, and remains undetected as a spy for over a half a century. Staring Judi Dench.

30/09/2019 Tolkien (12A)
A moving and beautifully acted film about the formative years of the orphaned author J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.

07/10/2019 Can You Ever Forgive Me (15)
Nominated at the Oscars, BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards, Melissa McCarthy gives a impressive performance in the true story of Lee Israel, someone falling into crime to pay the bills. The story is told from Lee's angle, without dressing it up or looking for empathy and sympathy for the perpetrator. It is not embellished too much to make it overly dramatic (as Hollywood too often does). Richard Grant gives an excellent performance as her ne'er do well friend and accomplice.

14/10/2019 Rocketman (15)
Multi award nominee and highly acclaimed "Rocketman" is an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John's breakthrough years, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard. Directed by Dexter Fletcher.

21/10/2019 All Is True (12)
Written by Ben Elton, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen appear along side a star-studded cast. This award winning and critically acclaimed film looks at the final days in the life of renowned playwright William Shakespeare. Also directed by Kenneth Branagh, this beautifully paced drama shows Sir Kenneth' s great ability to engage his audience from the very beginning.

28/10/2019 Green Book (12)
2019 BAFTA and Oscar winner, this is a superb, humorous film with a great atmosphere where the old cars, concert halls and landscapes feature strongly. But it is the relationship between the driver and the concert pianist that makes this such a memorable film. Set in 1962 America, it is a heart-warming, true story of working-class Italian-American bouncer who accepts a job as chauffeur for world-class black pianist. The mismatched pair embark on a two-month concert tour in the racially charged deep south where they face adversity at every turn but soon discover they're on the road to a unique and meaningful friendship.

4/11/2019 Three Identical Strangers (12)
Multi award winner and nominee, identical triplets are separated at birth and adopted to different parents. The trio's joyous reunion in 1980 catapults them to fame but it also sets in motion a chain of events that unearths an extraordinary and disturbing secret that goes far beyond their own lives - a secret that might one-day answer key questions at the heart of all human behaviour.
