It's A Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

Juliet, Naked

Juliet, Naked
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jesse Peretz
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke, Chris O'Dowd

Duncan (O’Dowd) is a media lecturer obsessed with the music of reclusive Tucker Crowe (Hawke), while Annie (Byrne), Duncan’s partner, wants children and is frustrated by her partner’s man-crush. A likeable cast can’t do much with a soppy narrative; this generic rom-com is short of rom and almost devoid of com.

Papillon

Papillon
  • 15

Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek star in this harrowing and darkly inspirational updated film version of Henri Charrière’s acclaimed novel. They play prisoners shipped off to a remote penitentiary in 1930s French Guiana who decide to try and escape the prison’s harrowing conditions, where prisoners are routinely brutalised. No simple remake of the 1973 version (which starred Steve Mc, Queen and Dustin Hoffman), this film is powerfully directed by Michael Noer (who made Danish prison drama R) and offers epic dramatic adventure.

The cinema on Portobello Road has survived two world wars, including a bombing, and a narrow escape from being turned into a bingo hall. Now over 100 years old, the beautiful arch surrounding the screen is protected by English Heritage, and a specially-designed expanding monitor ensures that the viewing experience is enhanced rather than compromised by the preserved architecture. There's spacious leather armchair seating with footstools and two-seater sofas available in the back row, and a cocktail bar open for 30 minutes before screenings. The discerning programme is a combination of art house, classic and mainstream films that have received critical acclaim.
