Globe On Screen presents a stunning new interpretation of Shakespeare's iconic play, set against the sweeping backdrop of Ancient Egypt.

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.

The third of our Roman Tragedies, Antony & Cleopatra picks up Antony's story many years after Julius Caesar. Virtue and vice, transcendent love and realpolitik combine in Shakespeare's greatest exploration of the conflicting claims of sex and power, all expressed in a tragic poetry of breath-taking beauty and magnificence.

The Globe's 2014 envisioning of this iconic play encapsulates these themes whilst deftly threading a sense of comedy throughout, and Olivier Award-winner Eve Best's Cleopatra 'kisses the audience' (Guardian) with her 'magnetically humorous' (Evening Standard) performance.

An inspiring and multi award winning New Zealand drama based on the incredible life of chess player Genesis Potini. Down-at-heel New Zealander Genesis Potini (Cliff Curtis) is a former chess prodigy who's fallen on hard times.

"The heartfelt telling of a truly extraordinary true story with a mesmerising central performance" **** Empire Magazine

1967 saw Julie Christie and Terence Stamp immortalised by The Kinks in 'Waterloo Sunset' and cast as lovers in Thomas Hardy's epic love story. Almost 50 years on, this restoration reveals the film as an immersive piece of cinema with Hardy's cruel ironies and bleak lyricism fully intact.

- Robin Baker, BFI

Headstrong and independent, farmer Bathsheba Everdene is among the most modern of 19th century heroines and Christie's performance beautifully underlines her as a woman at odds with the conventions of the time.

Bathsheba unexpectedly inherits a large farm in rural Dorset. Struggling to manage it herself, she captivates the hearts and minds of three very different men: an honest and hardworking sheep farmer, a wealthy but tortured landowner, and a reckless and violent swordsman. But as emotions become entangled, free spirited and innocent folly soon leads to devastating tragedy.

The film contains a number of stand-out set-pieces, such as Stamp's seductive, almost Freudian display of swordsmanship. But what resonates so deeply is the way in which Schlesinger and cinematographer Nicolas Roeg frame the passions and tragedy at the film's heart against the patterns of rural life and the harsh, sodden beauty of the Dorset landscape.

"Gorgeous, one of the most entrancing and elemental landscape films ever shot in these isles" ***** Tom Huddleston, Time Out

"Seductive swordplay, psychedelic cows [...] Julie Christie is luminous and Terence Stamp a blade-twirling dazzler in John Schlesinger's classic adaptation of Thomas Hardy" ***** Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

This glorious new digital restoration is scanned at 4K and restored at 2K from the original 35mm negative.

A model Swedish family - handsome businessman Tomas, his wife Ebba and their two beautiful children - are on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular, but during lunch at a mountainside restaurant an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

A critical favourite at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard category, Force Majeure is a wickedly funny and precisely observed black comedy that marks Ruben Östlund as one of Europe's most stingingly intelligent filmmakers.

'Two By Two Ooops ... The Ark Has Gone' is our Saturday morning Kino Kids Club screening for June.

The Biblical story of Noah's Ark gets a family-friendly spin in this madcap animated adventure. The Bible says that Noah built an ark and populated it with species of every animal to save them from the Great Flood. But what about those hapless critters that were left behind? Meet Dave and his son Finny, species of a clumsy, brightly coloured creature called the Nestrian.

They're thrilled to hear that Noah is building his Ark to save all the animals, but then they find out that Nestrians aren't allowed on board. Nevertheless, they decide to sneak on board with the help of two Grymps, Hazel and her daughter Leah. But disaster strikes when Finny and Leah fall off the Ark, and have to make their own way to the only bit of land not yet engulfed by water.

It's then up to Dave and Hazel to put aside their differences, turn the Ark around and go and save their children.

Action man Tom Hardy plays the iconic Road Warrior in the fourth adrenaline-driven Mad Max thriller.

In a stark and parched post-apocalyptic landscape, taciturn anti-hero Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) meets his shaven-headed female counterpart Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) who needs to cross the desert to get home.

Writer/director George Miller revives the Mad Max series after 30 years with this hyper-kinetic chase movie. Boasting amazing visuals and an intense performance from Tom Hardy, Mad Max: Fury Road promises to be a worthy sequel to one of the all-time great action franchises.

Charlize Theron (Young Adult), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Zoë Kravitz (The Divergent Series), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) and Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough also star.

Run time: 120 mins

"Charlize Theron joins Hardy's lone wolf ex-cop in George Miller's deliriously strange action adventure, a rollicking Grand Theft Auto revamped by Hieronymus Bosch" ***** Peter Bradshaw The Guardian

A charming, spirited, speculative account of the night spent by Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret during the VE Day celebrations.

Following the end of World War II, while Britain was celebrating VE Day on 8 May 1945, two members of the Royal Family were permitted to leave Buckingham Palace and enjoy a night on the town - properly chaperoned of course!

They were Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret. Now, a charming new historical drama from director Julian Jarrold imagines what the two Royals might possibly have got up to during their night spent mingling with 'ordinary' folk. Sarah Gadon plays Elizabeth and Bel Powley plays Margaret in this humorous yet thoughtful depiction of a country on the cusp of great change.

It's also the story of two sisters who in the course of one night discover more about life than they ever could have imagined. Emily Watson, Rupert Everett and Jack Reynor round out the starry cast.

Director: Julian Jarrold
Starring: Sarah Gadon, Bel Powley, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett, Jack Reynor

Run time: 96 mins

"A poignant and entertaining affair, with enough of a satirical edge not just to seem like an exercise in cosy British nostalgia. Gadon is exceptional as the cocooned young princess who adjusts with surprising pragmatism to life beyond the palace gates." **** The Independent
Globe On Screen: The Comedy Of Errors  (PG)

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders.

Basing his plot on a farce by Plautus, Shakespeare caps the mayhem of his Roman original to build up a hectic tale of violent cross-purposes, furious slapstick and social nightmare.

The final Globe On Screen film for 2015 brings the perfect light relief to close an epic season of war and tragedy. This sell-out production employed authentic Renaissance costumes and staging and will have cinema audiences roaring with laughter as it crams in "more hilarious anarchy than you can shake a fish, cat or identity-confused servant at." (London Theatre Guide).

William Friedkin's Oscar-winning 1971 crime classic, The French Connection is retold from a stylish European perspective.

In the 1970s, magistrate Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin) is determined to dismantle the most notorious drug smuggling operation in history. The man in charge of the smuggling is the charismatic and wealthy Gatean "Tany" Zampa (Gilles Lellouche) who runs the heroin trade into the States. But despite Michel's taskforce of elite cops and the blizzard of arrests and interrogations, it seems that Zampa is always one step ahead... Based on true events, The Connection tells the same story as the classic 70s thriller The French Connection, only from a European perspective.

Academy Award-winning actor Jean Dujardin (The Artist) headlines, alongside Gilles Lellouche (Mesrine: Killer Instinct) in this gritty and thrilling drama. Cédric Jimenez, director of the innovative science-fiction movie Aux Yeux de Tous is behind the camera.

Starring: Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette, Mélanie Doutey, Benoît Magimel, Guillaume Gouix
