With the first foreign language film ever to win Best Picture at the Oscars this year (Parasite, showing 14th March), have you ever thought of giving some other world cinema titles on offer a try? Of course we are delighted to sell out the more mainstream titles that we screen but if you only come to those, you’ll be missing out on so many other incredible films worth taking a look at.
Our new programme covering March and April is full of gems, there are still some great films out and about on general release. How about giving the highly acclaimed French film Portrait of a Lady on Fire (showing the 2nd April) a whirl, or moving Cunningham, a documentary about the incredible dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham to first position in your diary, (showing the 9th April)? The Perfect Candidate (showing on the 23rd April) is a Saudi/German collaboration and well worth sashaying down to the dockyard for.
Remember when Sam Mendes won an Oscar for his first feature, American Beauty, and shot that incredible opening sequence in Mexico City for Spectre? Continuing to wow us with his immense talent we are very happy to have a second screening of 1917 this Thursday at 7.00pm.
