  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

The Farewell

  • 2019

  • 1h 38min
  • Directed by: Lulu Wang
  • Cast: Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Shuzhen Zhao

When a Chinese grandmother gets terminal cancer, the family is torn between hiding the diagnosis from the patient or telling her. Poignant and deeply personal family comedy from Wang, with a hugely affecting performance from rapper-turned-actress Awkwafina as Billi, who adores her Nai Nai (Zhao, effervescent). A bittersweet portrait of undying love.

The Killers

The Killers
  • 1946

  • 1h 45min
  • 12
  • Directed by: Robert Siodmak
  • Written by: Story:, Ernest Hemingway, Screenplay:, Anthony Veiller, Richard Brooks, Uncredited:, John Huston
  • Cast: Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, Edmond O'Brien, Sam Levene

All the markers of the classic film noir are here in abundance as insurance investigator O'Brien looks into the mysterious death of Burt Lancaster. Better than the Don Siegel remake, if only for the atmospherics.

Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep

Michael Banks (Whishaw) is facing ruin after the death of his wife, and his sister Jane (Mortimer) can’t help—but then Mary Poppins (Blunt) sails down from the sky. Blunt is suitably brusque and radiant and a fine songstress, and while it’s a sliver of a story it’s impressively imaginative and unashamedly, triumphantly nostalgic.

Mrs Lowry & Son

Mrs Lowry & Son
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Adrian Noble
  • Cast: Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall, Wendy Morgan

LS Lowry (Spall) is a meek Salford rent collector dominated by his bedridden mother Elizabeth (Redgrave), but his secret passion for painting is about to bring him success. Hesford’s clichéd script feels more like a stage or radio play but Spall and Redgrave manage to bring substance to the bickering; still, it’s glum, downcast and lacking insight.

  • Cast: Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas

IBLAS Talks Film- Lecturers from the Iberian and Latin American Studies department of the University of Liverpool present a series of films & talks from the wide Luso-Hispanic world that address historical and contemporary issues.

Revered Spanish director Pedro Almodavar is known to create rich worlds that revel in the mystery of women, described by him as the 'Cinema of women'.

Volver draws inspiration from Italian neorealism to address themes such as sexual abuse, loneliness and death as experienced by three generations of women from an eccentric family.

Rich in magical realism, a vivid palette and complex characters typical of Almodovar's films.

Cinema City

The building housing this cinema was bequeathed in 1925 to the 'Mayor, Alderman and Citizens of the City of Norwich' with the intention 'that the place should be used for the advancement of education in its widest and most comprehensive sense'. That aim stands true today, as a vast range of events and themed screenings take place at the venue, including showings of documentaries and live recordings of opera and theatre shows. Refreshments are available at the Dining Room.

All areas of the building are accessible by wheelchair and adapted toilet facilities are available.

To access the cinema by public transport please note that Norwich Railway Station is a short walk away, as is the Norwich Castle Meadow Bus Terminal.
