Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6

  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Williams, Don Hall
  • Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, T. J. Miller, Daniel Henney, Maya Rudolph

Hiro (Potter) is a 14 year old robotics genius who, after a family tragedy, teams up with inflatable robot Baymax (Adsit) to become crimefighting superheroes. This Disney adaptation of a Marvel comic deals with dark themes of loss and grief but also has plenty of heart and some big laughs, especially from Adsit.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Far from the Madding Crowd

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.

  • Directed by: Tim Johnson
  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

Pitch Perfect 2

Pitch Perfect 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 114 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, Kelley Jakle, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Elizabeth Banks

After a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction at the White House, the Barden Bellas attempt to get their groove back in a Eurovision-like song contest. Despite highlights such as Lee's brilliantly weird performance as Lilly, the knowing charm of the original is diluted and Wilson's schtick, in particular, is starting to grate.

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.

  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie

Science-obsessed teenager Casey (Robertson) teams up with mysterious Athena (Cassidy) and child-genius-turned-grump Frank (Clooney) to unlock the secrets of a mysterious pin. Futuristic family adventure, refreshingly driven by two young women; Casey and Athena are inspiring heroes and the visuals are stunning.

Muswell Hill's handsome Odeon dates from 1936, and is a grade II listed building; its interior is the most elaborate of any original Odeon cinema to survive. It was subdivided into three screens as long ago as 1974, with the result that in the main auditorium the seats are all in the balcony.

The two smaller screens, 2 & 3, have wheelchair spaces but screen 1 has no disabled access. There are disabled toilets and parking spaces, but no hearing loops. The cinema has its own car park at the rear of the building.

The cinema is served by bus stops for the 102, 234, 603 routes, with the 43 and 134 around the corner on Muswell Hill Road. The nearest Tubes are East Finchley, a little over a mile to the west (follow Fortis Green), or Highgate to the south, down Muswell Hill Road.
