Colin Firth stars as a suave super-spy in this gadget-packed action adventure from the creators of 'Kick-Ass'. Petty criminal Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is bright but troubled. Luckily, his father once saved the life of impeccably dressed secret agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth).

Hart decides to repay the debt by recruiting Eggsy to his elite independent international intelligence organisation known as the Kingsmen. The uncouth young protege is entranced by all the amazing weapons and gadgets he'll get to play with, which even include a killer umbrella! But first he has to undergo a rigorous training regime. And now a sinister new global foe has emerged in the form of unspeakably evil Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson).

Like the hit 'Kick-Ass', this hyper-real, stunt-filled espionage yarn is adapted by Jane Goldman from a comic book by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. Completing the reunited creative team is director Matthew Vaughn, whose credits also include 'X-Men: First Class'.

The Kajaki Dam in Afghanistan 2006; a group of soldiers made up mostly from the British Army's 3rd Battalion, the Parachute Regiment, are stationed here whilst a Taliban roadblock is disabled. When one of the soldiers detonates a landmine in a river bed at the foot of the ridge, he is seriously injured. His comrades come to his rescue, only to find themselves becoming trapped.

Unbeknownst to them, they had accidentally stumbled upon an unmarked minefield, left behind from the Russian invasion of the 1980s. From now on, every single move is crucial, as there is no way of knowing where the next landmine lies.

Kajaki is directed by Paul Katis and written by Tom Williams, who worked closely with the survivors to bring you a war film that is as authentic as they come. Executive Producer Gareth-Ellis-Unwin is known for his work on The King's Speech, which won him an Academy Award for Best Picture as well as a BAFTA.

"A nerve-rackingly suspenseful recreation of a gruesome incident during the Afghan war" **** The Guardian

Lovable Shaun goes on a crazy adventure in this brilliant animation from the people behind Wallace and Gromit. Daily life on Mossy Bottom Farm is getting just a little bit too routine for Shaun the sheep. So he decides it's time to have a nice day off. Unfortunately, his cunning ruse leads to a series of mishaps that result in the Farmer making an unplanned exit. Now it's up to Shaun and the rest of the flock - plus Bitzer the sheepdog - to make their way to the Big City and recover him. But to avoid the attentions of nasty animal containment officer Trumper, the sheep have to disguise themselves as human! Luckily, they get a little help from a lovable orphan dog named Slip.

This film is the story of a movement. It chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition.

This film tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.

The Astounding Works of Simon Trout by Owen Lewis

Better the devil you know…?
How far might you go if you had the power to change your home, your family and the things around you? The enigmatic Simon Trout has the unique ability to make this happen, if you are brave enough to ask out loud.
But when Simon's interpretation of your wishes does not meet your own, how quickly might you wish that you had maintained the status quo? Sometimes the truth can cut deeper than knives. If faced with Simon Trout, an unusual, mysterious individual who has the power to do all that and much more, what would you do?
Witness the amusing and disturbing consequences as Karen Carter asks Simon Trout for help.

No Man's Land by Ceri Wright and David Wright

Are some issues just too big to put to one side…?
How did you cope with Christmas last year? Was it the same as usual; all the family together, perhaps a game of scrabble, lots of fun, drinks, some telly and that big Christmas dinner?
The Baker household set out to do the very same – to put all of their differences and disagreements to one side just for the day, try to get on together, eat, drink and be merry.
A Christmas truce, so to speak…

The definitive version of Ridley Scott's sci-fi masterpiece starring Harrison Ford.

In the rainswept, neon-lit LA of 2019, former cop Deckard (Harrison Ford) is charged with tracking down and eliminating a bunch of advanced android 'replicants' who've escaped from an off-world colony. It's a difficult task because they're almost impossible to distinguish them from humans. One of the replicants, Rachael (Sean Young), has even been implanted with a set of false memories and believes herself to be human. Meanwhile, their leader, Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer), is determined to track down his creator to discover his own 'termination date'.

Adapted from a Philip K. Dick novel, Ridley Scott's dazzlingly original, noirish sci fi thriller was originally released in 1982. Several versions of this much acclaimed, hugely influential film have been seen on screen since then. But on its 25th anniversary, Scott was given complete creative freedom to create this final cut, fully restored from the original negative.

Film critic David Thomson called it "a superb piece of future-making and a film noir that bleeds over into tragedy."

"Ridley Scott's Blade Runner: The Final Cut, which stars Harrison Ford, is a masterpiece of dystopian science fiction on film and will be back in cinemas in 2015." ***** The Telegraph

Blade Runner's re-release in cinemas in 2015 brings to a close the BFI's Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, a UK-wide celebration of film and television's original blockbuster genre.

Director: Ridley Scott

Starring: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah

Ivo van Hove directs this stunning production of Arthur Miller's tragic masterpiece, broadcast from London's West End by National Theatre Live.

A stellar cast led by Mark Strong (The Imitation Game, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) feature in the Young Vic's "magnetic, electrifying, astonishingly bold" production, which won acclaim as the Evening Standard, Guardian and Independent's top theatre pick of 2014.

In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom. But when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price. Eddie's jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret, one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal.

"This staging of A View from the Bridge (1956) is one of the most powerful productions of a Miller play I have ever seen. It breaks the surly bonds of naturalism and the conventions of the well-made play to create a work of seething intensity and savage beauty that grips the audience throughout its interval-free two-hour playing time. By the end you feel both emotionally drained and unexpectedly elated – the classic hallmarks of a great tragic production."
- The Telegraph.

Approximately 150 minutes with no interval.

ELECTRICITY is an astonishing journey seen through the eyes of a young woman whose epilepsy brings extraordinary hallucinations as she searches for her lost brother.

Lilly O'Connor (Deyn) – brash, sexy, witty – lives on the Northeast coast away from the world and her past. But when her mother dies, the past draws Lily back in.
