The Bookshop

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Isabel Coixet
  • Cast: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson
  • UK release: 29 June 2018

Florence (Mortimer) is a war widow who causes a stir in a 1950s Suffolk seaside town when she opens a bookshop. Like modern-day Brief Encounter, this adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel is all unspoken sentiment which never descends into mawkishness. Restrained but quietly subversive.

Wed 26 Sep

01439 771700

  • 19:30

The Children Act

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Eyre
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead
  • UK release: 24 August 2018

Fiona (Thompson) is a High Court judge who finds herself becoming involved with a Jehovah’s Witness teenager (Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion for his leukaemia. Heavy-handed adaptation by McEwan of his own novel; not entirely convincing but Eyre brings out fine performances.

Wed 10 Oct

£7.50 (Children £5.50) / 01439 771700

Christopher Robin

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings
  • UK release: 17 August 2018

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

Wed 3 Oct

01439 771700

  • 19:30

£7.50 (Children £5.50) / 01439 771700

  • U
  • Directed by: William Wyler
  • Cast: Barbra Streisand, Omar Sharif, Kay Medford

Biopic loosely based on the life and career of comedienne Fanny Brice and her rocky relationship with professional gambler and con artist Nick Artstein.

Sat 17 Nov

£15 (Children £7.50) / 01439 771700

Glenn Wool: Wool's Gold II (the Iron Pirate)

Comfortably in his forties, award-winning comedian & new dad Wool delves into his back catalogue of material spanning 25 years to perform some of his more subversive routines. Does he still agree with those points of view or has he finally grown up? Plus a little navel gazing tossed in for the arty-farty types.

Fri 15 Mar 2019

£15.40 / 01439 771700

The Incredibles 2

  • 3 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Wed 31 Oct

£7.50 (Children £5.50) / 01439 771700

The King of Thieves

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

Wed 7 Nov

  • 1h 37min

  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Cast: Rob Brydon, Rupert Graves, Adeel Akhtar, Jim Carter, Jane Horrocks, Thomas Turgoose, Daniel Mays, Charlotte Riley
  • UK release: 6 July 2018

Eric (Brydon) is a melancholy accountant in middle life who joins a synchronised swim team at his local pool. This ultra-low-budget offering has a game ensemble who work terrifically well as wisecracking comrades, and Riley as good as their tough coach. It may be The Full Monty with nose clips and goggles but it keeps…
