  • US
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mike Mills
  • Cast: Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • 113 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

Christine

Christine
  • 2016
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Antonio Campos
  • Cast: Rebecca Hall, Michael C Hall, Tracy Letts

The true story of Florida television news reporter Christine Chubbuck, who committed suicide on air in July 1974; Campos tells it as the story of a serious and dedicated but neurotic and insecure journalist appalled by the growing pressure to achieve higher ratings. Hall is astonishing: edgy, nervous, uncomfortable and immensely sympathetic.

Dancer

Dancer
  • 2016
  • 85 min
  • Directed by: Steven Cantor
  • Cast: Jade Hale-Christofi, Sergei Polunin

A portrait of extraordinary dancer Sergei Polunin, the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal who walked away from dance age just 25.

Fences

Fences
  • 2016
  • US
  • 139 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Denzel Washington
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson

Troy ( Washington) is a proud, tight-fisted, ageing working stiff in 50s Pittsburgh, full of bitterness that God, poverty and segregation ruined his youthful dreams of sporting success. Beautifully shot family drama, superbly acted (especially by Washington and Davis), but it suffers a bit from heavy self-importance and a long running time.

The Founder

The Founder
  • 2016
  • US
  • 115 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: John Lee Hancock
  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch

The story of Ray Kroc (Keaton), a salesman who turned the burger restaurant of Dick and Mac McDonald (Offerman & Carroll Lynch) into the biggest fast food enterprise in the world. Keaton is on fire as the grasping, ruthless Kroc and it's a fascinating study in ambition.

Funny Face

Funny Face
  • 1957
  • US
  • 103 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Stanley Donen
  • Written by: Leonard Gershe
  • Cast: Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Kay Thompson, Michel Auclair, Robert Flemyng

Design is to the fore in Donen's visually brilliant musical fairytale that follows a vaguely Pygmalion structure. Hepburn is the dull bookseller who's transformed into a model by fashion photographer Astaire. A Gershwin score, some biting wit from Thompson as a magazine editor and Hepburn's glowing beauty make this an enduring movie that looks terrific.

The General

The General
  • 1926
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman
  • Cast: Buster Keaton, Marion Mack

Johnnie Gray (Keaton) is a Georgia train engineer who gets caught up in the American Civil War. Keaton's 1926 masterpiece performed so poorly on its release that it helped kill his career as an independent filmmaker, but it's now rightly viewed as one of the greatest of silent comedies and a heroic achievement, blending subtle visual gags with epic camerawork and including an unforgettable train crash sequence.

GoodFellas

GoodFellas
  • 1990
  • US
  • 145 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Braco, Paul Sorvino.

Liotta plays Henry Hill, a real-life mafioso, with De Niro as his mentor in crime. And while the bullets, fists and carving knives fly, Scorsese brings us back to that unavoidable question – yes, it's glamorous and lucrative to live this way, but can anyone really live with the consequences? Winner of BAFTA awards for best film, director and screenplay, and a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Joe Pesci.

Hidden Figures
  • 2016
  • US
  • 127 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe

The true story of the African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch its first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.

La La Land

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

Lion

Lion
  • 2015
  • Australia/UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: Garth Davis
  • Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

  • 2016

  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

Refreshments are available at the Dining Room.

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