Dr Seuss' The Lorax

Dr Seuss' The Lorax
  • 2012
  • US
  • 86 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Max Webster
  • Written by: Ken Daurio
  • Cast: Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Danny DeVito

Youngster Ted (Efron) discovers the grumpy but charming Lorax (perfectly voiced by De Vito) trying to protect his world from a greedy mayor and a ruined old hermit. Beautifully-designed 3D animation and uniquely odd Seussian characters are undermined by the script, which buries Dr Seuss’s sharp tale in a mish-mash of satire and sentiment.

Far from the Madding Crowd

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

Girl's Night Out (Cert. 12A)

Also known as A Royal Night Out

May 8th, 1945 – V.E. Day… a nation celebrates the victorious end to a long and costly war. Cloistered away in Buckingham Palace two princesses peer out longingly at the adoring crowd who ready themselves for the biggest party London has ever seen.

Princess Elizabeth and her headstrong 15-year-old sister, Margaret, would give anything to join them.

Billed as a “real-life fairy tale” this film from the producers of ‘Mrs Brown’ promises lovely period detail and delightful escapism.

A Royal Night Out

A Royal Night Out
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Julian Jarrold
  • Written by: Trevor De Silva/Kevin Hood
  • Cast: Sarah Gadon, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett

Whimsical romance based on the true story of how, on VE Day 1945, the teenage princesses Elizabeth (Gadon) and Margaret (Powley) were allowed out of Buckingham Palace to celebrate with the crowds. Gadon is hugely likeable, Powley steals scenes, Everett is excellent as their father and it's tender, funny and occasionally raucous.

  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him.

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.
