The Aeronauts

The Aeronauts
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones,

In 1862, meteorology pioneer James Glaisher (Redmayne) takes flight in a hot air balloon piloted by Amelia Wren (Jones). Old-school adventure with spectacular effects and a neatly layered screenplay; any predictability is offset by the film’s charm and the fond chemistry between Redmayne and Jones.

Aftermirth

Aftermirth

The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy! AFTERMIRTH is an adult comedy club that you can bring your baby to. Each week we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians delivering their usual club routines sothe material is mature and sweary with the odd birth story flash back…. The only difference is it’s during the day. Babies under 18 months are welcome, but please don’t bring older toddlers because they tend to heckle!

This special afternoon gig has reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed and you can walk about or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams. There’s snacks and drinks available in the cafe too so treat yerself to cake and a Prosecco, you deserve it!

The gig is also open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some afternoon comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.

Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound

Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Midge Costin

An exploration of the role of sound in film by sound-editor-turned-educator Costin. It never feels dry, with contributions from notable directors and sound designers, and although it’s almost entirely about American movies it’s still an exceptional introduction to a neglected art form. Accessible, illuminating and entertaining.

  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alejandro Landes
  • Cast: Sofia Buenaventura, Moises Arias, Julianne Nicholson

In an unnamed Latin American country, a ragtag team of adolescent male and female guerrillas are guarding an American hostage, Doctora (Nicholson). There’s no social or political context: it’s a primal chaotic portrait of the impact of conflict on the soul. A masterful exploration of the inhumanity of battle and the hostilities of adolescence.
