Sandy (Newton-John) meets Danny (Travolta) and they have a summer romance, but he doesn't expect to see her turn up at his school the following year. There follows teenage angst, misunderstandings and a joyful reunion. Despite its dubious 'change yourself to attract the person you want to be with' message, it's a good…

  • UK release: 30 March 2018

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

The King Lear

An inventive take on Shakespeare's classic tragedy King Lear, which re-imagines the plot in a classic English pub, and the titular character as a publican rather than a monarch.

Fri 4 May

£10 (£8) / 0115 901 3640

Little Red Robin Hood

A slapstick puppet show by Garlic Theatre, which re-imagines Robin Hood in the titular role of Red Riding Hood. Will he get the cakes and flowers to Grandma in time, or will he have a dramatic showdown against the Big Bad Wolf, who looks rather like the Sheriff of Nottingham?

Maciek Pysz And Gianluca Corona

Of his live performances, one critic referred to the "refreshingly clean, quicksilver beauty of Maciek Pysz's guitar".

Gianluca…

  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance

Wade (Sheridan) lives in a city wasteland of rusting trailers called The Stacks, spending his days playing (along with nearly everyone else) in a VR world called the OASIS. But then OASIS’s creator dies; who will inherit his fortune? Eye-popping blockbuster, relentlessly entertaining but without much emotion or involvement.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Francis Lawrence
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Mary-Louise Parker

Dominika (Lawrence) is a beautiful Bolshoi ballerina forced to go to spy school and seduce American agent Nate (Edgerton). Not an action vehicle but a dialogue-heavy spy story, surprisingly downbeat and sometimes genuinely nasty, but Lawrence gives a complex and balanced performance, the cast is strong and the topicality…

Lara Croft (Vikander) is told by guardian Ana (Scott Thomas) that her ten-years-missing dad (West) is dead, and she inherits a key to the secrets of his past. Vikander gives it bags of commitment and Uthaug keeps the energy level high, leaving you actually looking forward to the prospect of a video game movie sequel.

  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Alessandro Nivola, Judith Roberts

Joe (Phoenix) is a gun for hire, Marine veteran and ex-FBI agent who rescues a young girl from a sex trafficking ring, but is haunted by his own traumatic past. A muscular and tightly-wound masterpiece with an intense and riveting performance from Phoenix. Crushingly sad, daringly outré and hugely accomplished.
