Thu 27 Jul

£15.35 some concessions

Dirty Dancing

  • 3 stars
  • 1987
  • US
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of…

Fri 8 Sep

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

  • 2 stars
  • 2001
  • US/UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus

Energetic if mildly bland adaptation of JK Rowling's first Potter book.

Jurassic Park

  • 1993
  • US
  • 127 min
  • 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…

Sat 19 Aug

£10.45–£47.25

La La Land

  • 5 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

Fri 18 Aug

£15.35 some concessions

Léon

  • 3 stars
  • 1994
  • France
  • 110 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Written by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Jean Reno, Nathalie Portman, Gary Oldman.

When his neighbour's family is wiped out by crooked cops on a bungled drugs bust, ice cool hitman Leon finds himself looking after the sole survivor – 12-year-old Mathilde. Luc Besson's first film in English is, nevertheless, a French film in terms of style, editing and its boldness in story and theme.

Fri 9 Jun

£15.35 some concessions

Moonlight

  • 5 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 111 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and…

Pretty Woman

  • 1990
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Garry Marshall
  • Written by: JF Lawton
  • Cast: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts

In this hugely successful comedy-romance, Gere stars as an unfeeling financial wheeler-dealer discovering he is human after all when he spends a week in the company of Roberts' downhome goodtime girl. Conversely, she rediscovers her self-esteem by carrying off the role of his high society companion with charm, so the…

Sat 10 Jun

£10.45–£47.25

Pulp Fiction

  • 4 stars
  • 1994
  • US
  • 150 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • 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…

Thu 17 Aug

£15.35–£47.25

Reading Open Air: Wind In The Willows

Mole, Toad, Ratty and Badger are brought to life as they tell the tale of the events at Toad Hall in this playful adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's classic children's book, perfectly suited to the beautiful and enchanting setting of Caversham Court Gardens. Why not bring a picnic and some fizz to one of the area's…

Police detective William Somerset is seven days away from retirement. For his last case, he is joined by his soon-to-be replacement, David Mills.

Troublemaker Jyn Erso (Jones) and Rebel intelligence officer Cassian Andor (Luna) lead a rag crew across the galaxy to make contact with Death Star chief engineer Galen (Mikkelsen), Jyn's dad.

Fri 28 Jul

£10.45–£47.25

Top Gun

  • 3 stars
  • 1986
  • US
  • 110 min

  • Written by: Jim Cash, Jack Epps, Jr
  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, Michael Ironside, Meg Ryan, Rick Rossovich, Whip Hubley, James Tolkan

Say what you like about him, Scott undoubtedly has the golden touch at the box office. This emotionless formula adventure about men being grandly upstaged by very fast, very expensive and very dangerous aircraft, with the splendid Ms McGillis thrown for love interest, made a fortune, especially in the US. It had to be…
