  • 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…

The Death of Stalin

  • 5 stars
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend
  • UK release: 20 October 2017

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

  • 14:30 – 16:30

  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: David Berenbaum
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, Ed Asner, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy from the star of Swingers.

Sat 23 Dec

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

The Glass Castle

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Destin Daniel Cretton
  • Cast: Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts, Ella Anderson, Chandler Head
  • UK release: 6 October 2017

The story of New York author Jeannette Walls (Larson as an adult, Anderson and Head as a child) and her upbringing in her eccentric family with mother Rose Mary (Watts) and alcoholic father Rex (Harrelson). Watts is underused as the vibrant Rose Mary and the cheesy dialogue and platitudes impair what’s otherwise a decent…

Wed 22 Nov

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

It's A Wonderful Life

  • 5 stars
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to…

Fri 22 Dec

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Jay Phelps Quartet

The Vancouver-born trumpeter leads his contemporary jazz outfit.

Thu 7 Dec

Justice League

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa
  • UK release: 17 November 2017

A team of superheroes forms to fight an alien invasion led by chief baddie Steppenwolf (Hinds). As so often, the villain is less interesting than the heroes, being a soulless CGI creation, but Affleck and Gadot are growing into their roles and it’s a lot better than the lumbering Batman vs Superman.

Wed 27 Dec

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Thu 28 Dec

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Murder on the Orient Express

  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley
  • UK release: 2 November 2017

Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously…
