Annie (Wallis) leads a group of multi-racial foster kids in Harlem; when grumpy magnate Will Stacks (Foxx) saves her from being run over, he's persuaded to become her guardian. Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) has real screen presence, but it's largely forgettable.
Maxine Peake As Hamlet
From its sell-out run at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre comes this unique and critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare's tragic Hamlet. In this stripped-back, fresh and fast-paced version, BAFTA nominee Maxine Peake creates a Hamlet for now, giving a performance hailed as "delicately ferocious" by The…

Mathias (Kline), a penniless New Yorker, travels to Paris to claim the apartment bequeathed to him by his father, except that 92-year-old Mathilde (Smith) and her daughter Chloe (Scott Thomas) already live there.

- UK release: 5 December 2014
The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of…
The cheeky, irritating one from TV's 'X-Factor' brings his swing-style crooning to a solo tour.

Wed 1 Apr
Royal Shakespeare Company: Richard II
Screening of the play, starring David Tennant as Richard II.
Sister Act is a feel amazing musical comedy. It tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look - a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her…
Testament of Youth
- 129 min
- Directed by: James Kent
- Cast: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton

Vera (Vikander) is a wilful and intelligent English girl; when her friend Victor (Morgan), fiancé Roland (Harington) and brother Edward (Egerton) go off to fight in WW I, she follows them to be a nurse. Sparing and respectful adaptation of Brittain's 1933 memoir; tasteful rather than innovative, it still packs a punch.

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.
