La La Land (12A)

Friday 26 May | 7.30pm | £5

With a record-breaking seven wins at the 2016 Golden Globes, this is a modern take on the Hollywood musical from Damien Chazelle, the Academy Award-nominated writer and director of 'Whiplash'. Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love: music.

"a musical romance that rushes from first love to heartache via showtunes, love songs and free jazz. Propelled by charming performances from its leads, it’s a sweet-natured drama that’s full of bounce"

Family Cinema: The LEGO Batman Movie (U)

Saturday 27 May | 11.00am | £3

There are big changes brewing in Gotham, but if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker's (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Maybe his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two.. 

"The best Batman film in years."

Lion (PG)

Friday 9 June | 7.30pm

The twice-BAFTA-winning film ‘Lion’ tells the extraordinary true story of Saroo Brierley, who was born in India but adopted by an Australian couple after he was separated from his family.

When he was five years old, he got lost on a train travelling away from his home. Years later, living in safety and security in Australia, he yearns to reunite with his family, and decides to use Google Earth to track them down. But his memories are hazy, and it could take years.  Based on Saroo’s book of his experiences, ‘Lion’ is a critically-acclaimed true story that would be almost impossible to believe if it hadn’t actually happened.
