The Age of Adaline

The Age of Adaline
  • 2015
  • US
  • 110 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lee Toland Krieger
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Harrison Ford, Michiel Huisman

After a freak accident in 1937, wealthy and beautiful 29-year-old Adaline (Lively) stops aging; every decade she has to move on in order to keep her secret, until she falls in love. Smooth, tasteful look at immortality; Lively is a bit lacking in star power, but Ford and Burstyn give wonderfully nuanced performances.

Casablanca

Casablanca
  • 1942
  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Curtiz
  • Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid

You must remember this … Bogart being impossibly noble, Bergman torn between two lovers, Claude Rains playing both ends against the middle, devious Nazis, a fogbound airport, a piano-player tinkling that tune. A wonderful hill of beans.

Moomins on the Riviera

Moomins on the Riviera
  • 2014
  • Finland/France
  • 80 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Xavier Picard, Hanna Hemilä
  • Cast: Russell Tovey, Nathaniel Parker, Tracy Ann Oberman, Stephanie Winiecki

The Moomins holiday in the South of France and fall in love with casino gambling and ritzy boutiques – all except for Moominmamma (Oberman), who heads for the beach. The elegant hand-drawn animation is a pleasure, although the casual pacing might not appeal to kids weaned on breathless action. A nostalgic treat.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 94 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Andy Fickman

Pitch Perfect 2

Pitch Perfect 2
  • 2015

  • 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.

Spooks: The Greater Good

Spooks: The Greater Good
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Peter Firth, Kit Harington, Elyes Gabel, Jennifer Ehle

When MI5 bigwig Harry (Firth) apparently commits suicide, his rogue godson Will (Harington) is ensnared to find out the truth. The TV show's big-screen outing is very enjoyable but cinematically pedestrian, neither anywhere near the Bond/Bourne standard nor as grittily realistic as it thinks it is, but Firth and Harington play well together.

Sat 23 May

£14

From its beginnings as an early cinema called the Picturedrome (first opened in 1914), the Connaught Cinema and RitzDigital have undergone some major changes, including time spent as a theatre, tea dance venue and, since 1987, a cinema once again, with fully modernised projection facilities. Now the building has 3D capability, a theatre studio, wheelchair access and some signed performances across the two screens.
