Free Fire

Free Fire
  • 2016
  • France, UK
  • 1h 30min

  • Directed by: Ben Wheatley
  • Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer

Boston, 1978: Chris (Murphy) is an IRA member looking to buy guns from Vern (Copley), with the help of go-betweens Justine (Larson) and Ord (Hammer): it soon descends into violence. Copley is very funny and there's some terrific dialogue, but Wheatley's latest sees him fumble the ball, with a threadbare plot that's merely an excuse for a movie-length shoot-out.

A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)

A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)
  • 2015
  • Sweden
  • 1h 56min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Hannes Holm
  • Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün, Tobias Almborg

Ove ( Lassgård) is an ageing, widowed grump who’s the self-appointed prefect of a small community; his attempts at suicide are continually frustrated by his new neighbours, mouthy Iranian immigrant Parvaneh (Pars) and her family. Shamelessly feelgood, with a welcome streak of black comedy, it’s predictable but heartwarming.

Bringing together two of France's finest leading ladies The Midwife explores the dynamic of midwife Claire (Frot) and her father's old mistress (Deneuve), who returns to Paris having been given just one year to live.

My Life as a Courgette

My Life as a Courgette
  • 2016
  • Switzerland, France
  • 1h 6min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Claude Barras
  • Cast: Gaspard Schlatter (voice), Sixtine Murat (voice), Paulin Jaccoud (voice)

Icare (Schlatter) is a nine year old boy who gets placed in an orphanage after the death of his alcoholic mother. Charming but profound stop-motion animated tale, skilfully adapted by Celine Sciamma (Girlhood) from Gilles Paris's novel; the kids' candid discussions about adult topics shows how much they have been through, yet it can be enjoyed by younger audiences.

Whirled Cinema

Small, cosy and intimate, Whirled Cinema is a world away from your everyday multiplex experience. With an affordable membership, and free of advertising and trailers, this is the place to come to indulge your love of good film, kick back with a few drinks and make new friends in a chilled and welcoming environment.

A little off the beaten track, we’re hidden away in railway arches in Loughborough Junction (just a stone’s throw from Brixton and Herne Hill), making us one of South London’s best-kept secrets.

Since we opened our doors in 2010, as an independent members cinema we have set out to screen a diverse programme of the best of current world and art house cinema.

And before and after you get your cultural hit, you can relax and talk film with fellow members (and no doubt the passionate film buffs who work here) in the outdoor balcony area and lounge, take advantage of the bar – serving cocktails to coffee and everything in between – and order in a Firezza Pizza, should hunger strike.

Once you’ve paid your (annual or joint only) membership you don’t have to worry about queuing and buying tickets to see films, or paying for any added extras. You can watch as many films as you like for free, and you can even bring a guest free of charge to share the fun. Rather cleverly, your Oyster card doubles as your membership card – so you’ll always have it to hand – and will allow you to gain access to the cinema.
