- Directed by: Steven Spielberg
- Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
- Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall
- UK release: 22 July 2016
Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely…

A night of swing, dance, and jazz from the ever popular Syd Lawrence Orchestra.

Brian Friel's Olivier Award winning play about life in a remote part of Ireland in the 1930s, focusing on the lives and loves of five sisters, told from the perspective of their brother Michael. Production by Theatre Alba.

- 109 min
- Directed by: Mick Jackson
- Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall
Deborah Lipstadt (Weisz) is a historian and lecturer who faces a libel suit after she derides controversial author David Irving (Spall) for his views on the Holocaust. This dramatisation of a 1996 court case has some compelling stretches, but Hare’s script lacks insight and it’s little more than a dry reconstruction of…
The Dublin Legends
These four members of the Dubliners keep the act going strong, following the death of founding member 'Banjo' Barney McKenna in 2012. Expect all the classic songs from the Dubliners' 50-year career.
Fifty Shades Darker
- Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
- Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan
- UK release: 10 February 2017
No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.
- 135 min
- Directed by: David Fincher
- Cast: Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter
Masculinity is in a mess and consumerism is to blame. Men have become docile spectators of life according to Fight Club, Fincher's controversial adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel. In reckless response to this late 20th century malaise, Norton's compliant spectator teams up with Pitt's mischievous Tyler Durden to form…
The legendary singer and Hammond B3 player performs his original jazz and R&B numbers alongside music from the artists that have influenced him.
- 127 min
- Directed by: Theodore Melfi
- Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe
The true story of the African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch its first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.
- 100 min
- Directed by: Pablo Larrain
- Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt
- UK release: 20 January 2017
Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the…
La La Land
- 126 min
- Directed by: Damien Chazelle
- Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons
- UK release: 13 January 2017
In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine.
Lawlor School Of Dance: Truly Scrumptious
The talented students present a story inspired by the much loved film/novel Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
- Directed by: Garth Davis
- Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
- Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman
The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

- Directed by: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
- Written by: Monty Python

- Written by: Quentin Tarantino
- Cast: John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Maria de Medeiros, Ving Rhames, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken, Bruce Willis
Much more ambitious than Reservoir Dogs, the most awaited second feature of the 90s has many scenes that crackle with Tarantino wit, and a few others that fall flat as the writer-director bravely experiments. Interlocking stories in the pulp crime manner concern hitmen, ailing boxers, gang bosses and their molls, drug…

Observational and high-energy new material from the award-winning stand-up.

- 108 min
- Directed by: Garth Jennings
- Written by: Garth Jennings
- Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Tori Kelly, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson
Koala impresario Buster Moon (McConaughey) decides to save his ailing theatre with a singing competition. Most of the humour comes from cute critters singing occasionally inappropriate songs; the plot is spread far too thin and there no real surprises, but it ticks the usual boxes.
The Sooty Show
Sweep, Soo and Richard join the loveable bear to celebrate his birthday party – where things don't seem to be going to plan.
Sound Of Soul
The Bournemouth-based choir performs a selection of soul classics, pop hits, rock, R&B and more.

- 117 min
- Directed by: Danny Boyle
- Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh
- UK release: 27 January 2017
Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.
- 119 min
- Directed by: Tony Scott
- Written by: Quentin Tarantino, Roger Avary (uncredited)
- Cast: Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken
Comic bookstore assistant Clarence meets, sleeps with and marries novice hooker Alabama within a matter of hours, then the lovebirds find themselves on the run with an accidentally stolen case of cocaine. Limelight-stealing cameos and writer Quentin Tarantino's verbal set-pieces fire this excellent movie, the epitome of…
The Wizard of Oz
- 102 min
- Directed by: Victor Fleming/Norman Taurog/Richard Thorpe
- Cast: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger
Miserable Dorothy runs away from home but is soon whisked up into a magical land where her adventures teach her that happiness is to be found in her own back yard. Classic stuff indeed, just chockful of great songs, characterisation and memorably garish design. Perhaps marginally less enjoyable for the curmudgeonly…
