  • 2019
  • UK / Australia / Ireland
  • Directed by: Sophie Hyde
  • Cast: Holliday Grainger, Alia Shawkat, Fra Fee

Laura (Grainger) and her friend Tyler (Shawkat) are flatmates either side of 30, negotiating transitions in their lives. Unsworth adapts her own novel and Hyde’s gently interrogatory style lends intimacy and buoyancy to the proceeding. A funny and authentic portrait of two sexually confident but otherwise confused women.

Apollo 11

Apollo 11
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Todd Douglas Miller

Documentary marking the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing with never-before-seen footage and newly discovered audio recordings. The rockets are spankingly new and exciting, and it’s a piece of gleaming history showing the youth, hope and enthusiasm of the time.

Blinded by the Light
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra

In 1982 Luton, Javed (Kalra) is a misfit who struggles to relate to family, neighbours and girls until he discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen. A joyful musical comedy about how music connects people; if it sometimes feels forced, and isn’t going to win prizes for subtlety, it’s still uplifting fun.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
  • 2000
  • China / US
  • 2h
  • 12
  • Directed by: Ang Lee
  • Cast: Michelle Yeoh, Chow Yun-Fat, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen

Jane Austen meets Bruce Lee in Ang 'Sense And Sensibility' Lee's astonishing martial arts period drama. In a fictionalised version of early 19th century China, a world of heroic warriors and deep philosophical values, Lee seamlessly interweaves the stories of two sets of lovers, and a revenge tale with a feminist twist. The fight scenes are groundbreaking, as choreographed by expert Yuen Wo Ping. At once breathtaking and beautiful, 'Crouching Tiger''s also a cinematic landmark: its fusion of the best elements from East and West cinema has created something wholly new.

Dumbo

Dumbo
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin

In this remake of the 1941 film, one-armed circus worker Holt (Farrell) is struggling to reconnect with his bereft children while a certain large-eared pachyderm is figuring out the ropes. It looks lovely, but there’s a lot of extra plot shovelled in and it’s arguably overloaded, compared to the sincerity and simplicity of the original.

Hail Satan?

Hail Satan?
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: Penny Lane

Documentary on The Satanic Temple, which rebels against state corruption and challenges hypocrisy about religious pluralism. Filmmaker Lane looks at the ways in which different members reacted to the scandals of Trump’s America; despite the dark material, in its humour and inspiring activism it’s a beacon of hope for our times.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Marianne & Leonard: Words Of Love

  • 2019
  • USA
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Nick Broomfield

Documentary about the love affair between Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen, and how their 1960s Greek idyll helped turn him into the musician he became. It’s bittersweet but not without a darker side, noting the casualties of the time, and there’s a mixture of archive material with fresh interviews. A poignant elegy for love and loss.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups

  • U
  • Directed by: Charles E. Bastien
  • Cast: Devan Cohen, Drew Davis, Samuel Faraci

A meteor lands in Adventure Bay and gives the pups superpowers, but also gives superpowers to nasty Harold of neighbouring Foggy Bottom. Basically a 70-minute extended episode of the series, enjoyably innocuous and easy to follow, although parents won’t be pleased when the toy requests come in after the end credits roll.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon

Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.

Situated directly above England's largest pub, the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse offers three screens and shows a range of classics and new releases, as well as having its own bar and cafe that's distinctly artier than the pub downstairs. You can enjoy a pint of the exclusive locally-brewed 'Reel Ale', and there are also regular film quizzes.

Cambridge Railway Station is a 20 minute walk away. From the station, walk straight on Station Road until you come to Hills Road (the end), then turn right. Walk along Hills Road until it becomes Regent Street and then Saint Andrew’s Street. The cinema is on the left above the pub ‘The Regal’.

Local buses stop on the Drummer Street bus depot, 2 minutes walk from the cinema. National Express coaches stop on the edge of Parkers Piece, 5 minutes walk from the cinema.
