Manolo (Luna) and best friend Joaquin (Tatum) are both in love with feisty Maria (Saldana), but it all goes El Sur when squabbling gods La Muerte (del Castillo) and Xibalba (Perlman) make a wager over who'll win her. Lively, colourful animation exploring dark themes, with great gags, superb voice work, and a delightful soundtrack.

Iron Giant

Iron Giant

  • 1999

  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick, Jr, Vin Diesel, Eli Marienthal, Christopher McDonald, John Mahoney

Animated film adaptation of Ted Hughes' classic children's story about a boy who befriends a 50ft robot from outer space. The action is transported from rural England to small-town America in the late 1950s. The resulting film is a fast-moving thrillfest featuring bongo-beating beatniks, a great rockabilly soundtrack and explosive destruction on a grand scale. This being a kids film, through, it's violence with a conscience.

Scarred mystery girl Agatha (Wasikowska) arrives in Hollywood and becomes personal assistant to aging diva Havana (Moore); meanwhile, her bratty actor brother Benjie (Bird) has become a teen idol. Williams tears into her role as Benjie's mother and Moore is fearless, but it all feels desperately obvious and rather silly.

What We Did on Our Holiday

What We Did on Our Holiday
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkin
  • Written by: Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkin
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, Billy Connolly, Celia Imrie, Ben Miller, Emilia Jones, Annette Crosbie

Doug (Tennant) and Abi (Pike) have separated, but when they go north for the birthday of Doug's father (Connolly), they instruct their kids (Jones, Smalldridge and Turnbull) to keep quiet about the separation. Charming and hilarious: Tennant and Pike are excellent, and despite the kids' scene-stealing improvisation it feels tightly scripted, exploring adult themes without mawkishness.

Our recently refurbished Stage Door Bar at Stalls level is open Wed–Sat 6pm until late (Open Sunday, Monday & Tuesday if there is a performance). The Stage Door bar is an eccentric and bohemian public bar that serves a wide range of hot and cold drinks, as well as being able to host live entertainment.
