Monday 6th August

The Dambusters (PG)


A brand-new 75th anniversary restoration of a much-loved British classic with local connections (it was filmed on Derwent reservoir). Michael Anderson’s 1955 drama captures the tension and bravery of an audacious raid on the centre of Nazi Germany’s industrial complex and the quintessentially English combination of inventiveness and dogged determination.

Coming Soon ….we’re back in August

We’ve picked some stunning films for the few weeks to the start of the Autumn Season.

On 13th August we’re showing the award-winning Australian western Sweet Country (15) with Sam Neill – an  engrossing and tense film set in the 1920’s Northern Territories.

Lean on Pete (15) on August 20th is a beautifully filmed story from British director Andrew Haigh (most recently 45 Years). Set in the sweeping landscapes of Midwest America, it is a moving story about a boy who has to look after himself in an adult world.

On 3rd September we bring you the most thrilling and unpredictable Oscar entry from Germany. In The Fade (18) gained Diane Kruger the Best Actress Prize at Cannes this year. With brilliant cinematography, you’ll be on the edge of your seat for the whole film.
