Mid-century America, a small town in Montana, and it seems everything around 14-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould) is slowly going up in flames – literally.

A forest fire near the Canadian border has dominated news headlines, refusing to quit despite the efforts of local authorities. Closer to home, there's a different sort of heat that's making it hard to breathe.

All the signs are there – bedding left on the sofa, arguments in the kitchen, and silence that hangs in the air like smoke. Things between Joe's mother, Jeanette (Carey Mulligan), and his father, Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal), are not okay.

Ever since Jerry lost his job, the tension in the household has been mounting. Humiliated and angry, he lashes out at his wife and son until the atmosphere becomes unbearable. Until suddenly he's bidding Joe goodbye, having taken a job up north to fight the fire.

Left alone with his mother, Joe watches as Jeanette spirals away from him in a different way, wrestling with her role as the helpless housewife. She's trying to break free from something, and when her 'friend' Bill Camp (Warren Miller) invites them both to dinner, Joe suddenly sees what it is she's struggling towards.

With both parents absent in one way or another, Joe tries to reconcile what has happened to his family. Will things will ever go back to how they were, or have they been scalded beyond recognition?

Based on Richard Ford's 1990 novel of the same name, Wildlife is the directorial debut from Paul Dano, who has starred in acclaimed films including Swiss Army Man and 12 Years A Slave. Ed Oxenbould (The Butterfly Tree) stars as the stricken teenager, alongside Oscar-nominees Carey Mulligan (Mudbound) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals).

Written and directed by Mike Leigh, Peterloo is an epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter's Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protestors were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy.


"With this richly intelligent, passionate movie Mike Leigh has fought a brilliant rearguard action on history's political battlefield." ***** Peter Bradshaw The Guardian


"Peterloo requires viewers to accept the slow boil that leads to its explosive and sad end, but it is also the uncompromising work of a master." **** BBC Culture


Director: Mike Leigh

Cast: Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Neil Bell

From Academy Award-winning director Steve MCQueen ('12 Years a Slave') and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn ('Gone Girl') comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. 'Widows' is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar winner Viola Davis), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. 'Widows' also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.


"To watch them coalesce into a hard-nosed crew of heisters is the year's most purely pleasurable piece of transformation." ***** Time Out


"Led by a magnificent Viola Davis, the cast is ridiculously stacked. The action is tremendous. And the ultimate message is devastating in its swift brutality." **** Globe and Mail


Director: Steve MCQueen

Opera in three acts. New production.


In Tchaikovsky's intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation.

The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production that has already garnered fivestar reviews in Amsterdam.


The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera's premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires.


Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.

This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.


Music: Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky
Directed by: Stefan Herheim
Conductor: Antonio Pappano
Choir: Royal Opera Chorus
Orchestra: Orchestra Of The Royal Opera House


Approximate running time 3 hours 30 minutes, including one interval. 


Sung in Russian with English subtitles.

Suspiria (18)

Wednesday 23rd January 7:30pm
Thursday 24th January 7:30pm

Tickets: £7.00 Adult/£5.00 under 16's
Book online:

How do you remake Suspiria, Dario Argento's 1977 giallo classic, beloved by many a cinephile for its lurid colour palette, conspicuous dubbing and Italian prog score? The answer, in Luca Guadagnino's (Call Me By Your Name) capable hands, is that you don't; this slyly-feminist horror film is more of an homage to Argento's original.

The story opens with young American Susie Bannion (here played by Dakota Johnson), traveling to Germany in order to audition for a renowned dance academy. She attracts the attention of school director and lead choreographer Madame Blanc (a luminescent Tilda Swinton), becoming the older woman's protegee. Yet, as Susie begins her formal dance training, other students are whispering about a coven of witches who they believe control the school.

Whereas the 1977 version was drenched in vivid technicolour reds, blues and purples, Guadagnino re-enlisted the help of Call Me By Your Name cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom to give the film a distinctive look in a hushed range of earthy pastels. It's a visual representation of the overall mode of Guadagnino's vision - a subtle, disquieting, and masterful piece of cinema.


"Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria has turned the horror genre on its head, with powerful women at the centre of a suspenseful, twisted story." **** Daily Mirror


"A richly provocative piece of modern art." **** The List


"2018's Suspiria is a straight up masterpiece. Suspiria taps into a deep well of history and human cruelty to conjure a tale of fascism and toppled regimes that somehow feels both firmly rooted in reality and as if the film itself is an act of ritual magic." A+


Director: Luca Guadagnino

Cast: Chloe Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton

The Old Man And The Gun (12A)
Friday 25th January 7:30pm
Saturday 26th January 7:30pm

Adapted from David Grann's New Yorker article, The Old Man and the Gun tells the story of Forrest Tucker, the self-styled 'Houdini' whose many audacious prison breaks included an Alcatraz flight in a homemade kayak, and whose last robbery was committed when he was 79. 


Focussing on Tucker's crime-spree with his geriatric band of brothers (the Over-the-Hill-Gang), who long evaded both the FBI and an increasingly frustrated detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), this is a brilliantly entertaining crime caper. 


Redford is at his screen-legend best as the silver fox, exuding nuclear-watt charisma (he's recently announced his retirement; as a swan song, it's a sweetly melodious one). Most delectable are the scenes in which he woos Jewel (Sissy Spacek) with a swoon-inducing chemistry as sparks crackle between the two. 


Infused with a passion for the classic American independent cinema of Redford and Spacek's generation, Joe Anderson's luscious 16mm photography delivers rapturous period camera flourishes, while a montage of Forrest's life-long exploits poignantly references old Redford movies. Offering bittersweet reflections on time and age (Jewel observes, 'this is the last time I'll ever have the chance to do whatever…'), 


The Old Man and the Gun is a testament to a free-spirit who steadfastly refused to go quietly.

Screening as part of the BFI Comedy Genius Tour


"Learning mechanics is easier than learning male psychology. You can figure out a bike, but you can never figure out a man."


Melding melodrama with screwball farce, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was Pedro Almodóvar's international breakthrough and secured his place at the vanguard of modern European cinema. Starring frequent Almodóvar collaborators Carmen Maura and Antonio Banderas, this unimpeachable black comedy was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards and  won five Goyas in Spain, including Best Film and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Maura.


With Almodóvar's trademark playful exploration of the female psyche, the film tells the story of Pepa (Maura) who resolves to kill herself with a batch of sleeping-pill-laced gazpacho after her lover leaves her. Fortunately, she is interrupted by a deliciously chaotic series of events – and many characters who are all possibly on the verge of a full emotional collapse.


A tale of the volatility of sexual desire and the anxieties of romantic relationships, but also the possibilities for personal liberation, Women on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown oozes with Almodovar's unique vision, irreverent humour and vibrant visual sense. With an exceptional ensemble cast that also includes Rossy de Palma, this film is the work of an artist in total control of his craft.


"With the support of the Independent Cinema Office and BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery"


Director: Pedro Almodóvar

Cast: Carmen Maura, Antonio Banderas, Julieta Serrano

La Traviata (12A)

>From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi's LA TRAVIATA is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending.

The opera's wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant 'Sempre libera' – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre's production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.



Approx. 3h 35m (inc. 2 intervals)
