Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but it’s a confidently handled crowdpleaser.

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

  • US / Denmark
  • 1h 41min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charlie Bean/Paul Fisher/Bob Logan

Lloyd (Franco) is the son of evil Lord Garmadon (Theroux), who wants to conquer Ninjago; however, Lloyd is also one of the team of ninja dedicated to combatting Garmadon and his minions. Not the most inspired of the LEGO movies but bright, brash and amusing, with intricate action, lots of slapstick fun and a delightful sequence of a cat destroying a city.

The Friendship Festival of Canterlot is disrupted by ruthless unicorn Tempest Shadow (Blunt), so Twilight Sparkle (Strong) and pals must embark on a rescue mission. It manages to showcase the brand without sacrificing every last ounce of soul, and is cute, simple and surefooted enough for its target audience, if not for anyone else.

The Post
  • 2018

  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson

The story of how the Washington Post, led by its publisher Katherine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), got the chance to print devastating revelations about US involvement in Vietnam. An old-fashioned Hollywood showstopper with a stellar supporting cast, and sizeable if predictable performances from the leads.

  • UK / US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.

Walk with Me

Walk with Me
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc J Francis, Max Pugh

Documentary about the Plum Village monastic community in France, founded by Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh. Some may find the lack of story or explanation exasperating, but the overall approach is to lead the viewer to the point of understanding without preaching. It’s a thoughtful and persuasive invitation to a world of meditation.

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.
