The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales…

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales…
  • 2017
  • France/Belgium
  • 1h 23min
  • U
  • Directed by: Patrick Imbert, Benjamin Renner
  • Cast: Kamel Abdessadok, Jules Bienvenu, Guillaume Bouchède

Whoever thinks that the countryside is calm and peaceful is mistaken. In it we find especially agitated animals: a Fox that thinks it's a chicken; a Rabbit that acts like a stork; and a Duck who wants to replace Father Christmas. Its charming, hand-drawn 2D animation is utterly beguiling and will please both children and adults alike with its nostalgic feel and inspired visual gags.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Corey Stoll, Claire Foy

Biopic of the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong (Gosling), with subtle and unshowy performances from Gosling and from Foy as his no-BS wife Jan. An intimate and moving character drama with raw and visceral space-peril thrills and a hero whose fame rests on modesty, curiosity and problem-solving purposefulness.

Solaris

Solaris
  • 1972
  • USSR
  • 2h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Written by: Fridrikh Gorenshtein, Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Cast: Natalya Bondarchuk, Donatas Banionis, Jüri Järvet, Vladislav Dvorzhetsky, Nikolai Grinko, Anatoly Solonitsyn

Tarkovsky's epic was intended as a socialist response to Kubrick's '2001', but some critics have lambasted it for its cod psychology and tired melodrama. Others believe it to be his most accessible film charged with a genuine poignancy and depth. Critics, eh?

A Star is Born

A Star is Born
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.

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.
