Baby Driver

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 1h 53min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Edgar Wright
  • Written by: Edgar Wright
  • Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx
  • UK release: 28 June 2017

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.

Thu 25 Jan

£16.50–£17.50

The Big Lebowski

  • 4 stars

  • 18
  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore

The Coen brothers give their unique twist to a Chandler-esque LA noir, as 70s hippy throwback Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski (Bridges) is drawn into the sordid affairs of his millionaire namesake. Suddenly he has to sleuth his way through disorganised crime. Trademark oddball characters, surreal imagery and excellent…

Thu 18 Jan

  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto
  • UK release: 6 October 2017

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but…

Fri 26 Jan

£16.50–£17.50

Coming to America

  • 2 stars
  • 1988
  • US
  • 1h 56min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Landis
  • Cast: Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones

Murphy is Prince Akeem, heir to the throne of a fabulously wealthy central African state, but dissatisfied with the bride arranged for him by King James Earl Jones. Instead, he travels to New York with sidekick Hall to seek his own choice of queen. Overlong and not terribly hilarious Murphy vehicle, with the star in…

Sun 21 Jan

£16.50–£17.50

The Dark Knight

  • 4 stars
  • 2008
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman

Nolan's revamp of the superhero franchise reaches its apotheosis with this sequel to Batman Begins, a supremely well-imagined, perfectly executed film that combines blockbuster spectacle with indie cinema cool and smarts. Psychotic, chaos-loving clown The Joker (Ledger) is introduced as the dark knight's ultimate nemesis…

Sat 20 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

Dunkirk

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity…

Sat 27 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

Groundhog Day

  • 5 stars
  • 1993
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Harold Ramis
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott

TV weatherman Phil Conners (Murray) finds himself in the back of beyond, trapped in an ever-repeating single day. Partying and babe-chasing leads to serious romancing as he goes after his producer (MacDowell). Murray's cuddly sarcasm stops the movie from becoming the kind of moralising mush that surrounds so many of his…

Tue 16 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

Jurassic Park

  • 1993
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, Wayne Knight

A group of scientists are invited to give their approval to a theme park filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs, but the giant reptiles are soon running amok. Top-notch computer effects ensure that the dinosaurs themselves are terrifyingly believable (more so than the PG certificate would suggest), but by the…

Sun 28 Jan

Cancelled

The King's Speech

  • 4 stars
  • 2010
  • UK
  • 1h 58min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tom Hooper
  • Cast: Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter

As war approaches, King George VI (Firth) is suddenly placed in a position of power, so hires a speech therapist to cure his speech impediment. Firth's affable persona lends an edge to the sheer frustration with which the King stumbles his way through public performances and contributes largely to the film's feel-good…

Wed 17 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

The Lego Batman Movie

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

Sat 20 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

Paddington

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/France
  • 1h 35min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi
  • UK release: 28 November 2014

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

Sat 27 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

True Romance

  • 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…

Tue 23 Jan

£16.50–£17.50

The Truman Show

  • 1998

The incredible story of one man's ordinary life. One of the smartest, most inventive movies in modern memory, The Truman Show is all the more noteworthy for its remarkably prescient vision of runaway celebrity culture and a nation with an insatiable thirst for the private details of ordinary lives. Jim Carrey gives a…

Sun 28 Jan

£16.50–£17.50 (Children £0–£25.50)

In 1949 LA, the humans live alongside the Toons, cartoon characters working in movies. Animated star Roger Rabbit hires private dick Hoskins to keep tabs on his wife, but he uncovers a conspiracy that threatens the future of Toontown itself. An amazing technical achievement for the interaction of cartoons and live action…

  • UK release: 1 June 2017

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.
