The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur
  • 2015
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Sohn
  • Cast: Voices of Lucas Neff, John Lithgow, Frances McDormand, Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, Bill Hader

Set in a world in which the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs had actually missed Earth and let them roam in peace, it's the tale of young Arlo (Ochoa), an apatosaurus who gets separated from his family and who teams up with mutt-like human boy Spot (Bright.) Debut director Sohn doesn't quite lift it to Pixar's heights but his voice work steals the show in this likeable kids' adventure.

  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Written by: Akira Kurosawa, Hideo Oguni, Masato Ide
  • Cast: Tatsuya Nakadai, Mieko Harada

Kurosawa's 'King Lear' is a bleak and despairing vision of mankind torn apart by disunity, personal vengeances and family feuds that produce no honour, no victors, just victims. An accomplished fusion of Japanese history and blood-drenched Shakespearean drama, this film grows more impressive with repeated viewings.

Auschwitz, 1944: prisoner Saul (Röhrig) is a member of the Sonderkommando, tasked with disposing of corpses after mass executions, who becomes determined to give a proper burial to a body he believes to be that of his son. Sensitive and non-judgemental but also intense and challenging (it won the Grand Prix at Cannes.)

Opened in 1912, the Hippodrome may be the oldest surviving purpose-built cinema building in Scotland. Converted into a bingo hall in the 1970s and closed entirely around 1980, this A-listed building reopened as a cinema in April 2009.
