Blinded by the Light

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.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • 1981
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, Ronald Lacey, John Rhys-Davies, Denholm Elliott

Ford plays adventuring archaeologist Indiana Jones, who almost bites off more than he can chew when he turns up at the Ark of the Covenant in Nazi-infested wartime Egypt. Return to the breathless excitement of the Saturday morning serial with this rollercoaster of a movie, which is probably better than either of its sequels. Tongue held very firmly in cheek.

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.

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.

  • France / Belgium
  • 1h 36min

  • Directed by: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre

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.

Pain and Glory

  • 2019
  • Spain
  • 1h 53min
  • Directed by: Pedro Almodovar
  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Leonardo Sbaraglia

Retired director Salvador (Banderas) reflects on his life while one of his older movies is being restored. This is Almodóvar on subdued, melancholic form, and while the film’s standoffish tone prevents us from feeling fully involved, the director’s sense of cinema remains undiminished.

The Little Theatre Cinema

The Little Theatre cinema opened in 1935, and was long owned by the family of the founders, Consuelo de Reyes and her stage designer husband Peter King, until it joined the PictureHouse chain.

The cinema is reputed to be built on catacombs. It featured in the Wes Anderson film Fantastic Mr Fox.

It is now a three-screen art house cinema in a small square near the centre of Bath.

There is no disabled access to Screen 2 or adapted toilets in the building. Visitors are advised to use the facilities in Seven Dials behind Sainsbury's on Kingsmead Square, in front of the Egg Theatre.

No parking is available at the cinema, but parking spaces for drivers with a disabled badge are located in St Michel's Place, adjacent to the cinema, any time for up to three hours.

Bath Spa railway station is a 7 minute walk away via Stall Street.
