Churchill

Churchill
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jonathan Teplitzky
  • Written by: Alex von Tunzelmann
  • Cast: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery

The story of how Churchill (Cox) was vehemently opposed to the Normandy landings of 1944. Intelligent, sometimes moving drama with an exceptional cast (especially Purefoy as a touching George VI) but not notably cinematic, stringing together a series of confrontations with shots of Churchill being driven from one place to another.

Hampstead

Hampstead
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

Heat

Heat
  • 1995
  • US
  • 170 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Mann
  • Written by: Michael Mann
  • Cast: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer

Mann's star package cops-and-robbers tale is head and shoulders above the rest of the genre, thanks to an action-packed screenplay that fully explores its themes and gives depth to its characters. Pacino is the dedicated detective whose home life is in ruins; De Niro is the reclusive criminal mastermind. The two men's finely balanced sense of honour and mutual respect is well dissected, and the shoot-out set pieces are heart-stopping. Brilliant.

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon
  • 1998
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John Maybury
  • Cast: Derek Jacobi, Daniel Craig, Tilda Swinton.

By no means a documentary-style portrait of the artist, Love is the Devil is concerned with the destructive relationship between Bacon and his lover George Dyer. Far more visual and experimental than most of what passes for British cinema these days. Jacobi has an uncanny physical resemblance to Bacon, but the real acting revelation is Craig (Geordie in Our Friends in the North) who superbly gives life to this human tragedy waiting to happen.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Michaël Dudok de Wit
  • Cast: Emmanuel Garijo, Barbara Baretta, Tom Hudson (voices)

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).

The Shack

The Shack
  • 2017
  • 132 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Stuart Hazeldine
  • Cast: Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Tim McGraw

In this faith-based project Mack Phillips (Worthington), a man grieving the death of his young daughter, receives a mysterious, personal invitation to meet with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit at a place called The Shack. Director Stuart Hazeldine balances serious plot details (child murder, suicide) with feelgood elements and the story is earnestly enough told to please its target audience. The A-list cast and simple strengths which made the book a bestseller may even appeal to non-churchgoers.

  • 2017
  • France
  • 122 min
  • Directed by: Bruno Dumont
  • Written by: Bruno Dumont
  • Cast: Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Portly police chief Machin (Després) and his sidekick Malfoy (Rigaux) investigate disappearing holidaymakers in Slack Bay; could cannibalism be involved? Madcap murder mystery with a stellar cast; the satire may be a touch obvious and the shtick becomes repetitive, but it’s speckled with hilarity.

  • USA

  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

  • Directed by: Nick Broomfield/Rudi Dolezal
  • Written by: Nick Broomfield

  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.

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.
