From Academy Award-winning director Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave") and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn ("Gone Girl") comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. "Widows" is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. "Widows" also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.



"A performance from Davis so fierce and specific that you will want to see her make 20 more action movies."

Peterloo (12A)

An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protestors were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

NT Live: The Madness Of George III (12A)

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.


The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).


It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

Female Human Animal (18)

Shot in the real-life contemporary art world, FEMALE HUMAN ANIMAL is a psychothriller about a creative woman disenchanted with what modern life has to offer her. When writer Chloe Aridjis curates the Tate retrospective of the surrealist Leonora Carrington, an elusive, brooding man appears, seeming to offer more. Enabled by the artworks' defiant mystery, Chloe pursues him. But as she descends into a world of obsession, is she hunter or hunted? A darkly romantic enactment of a woman going beyond societal norms, it puts on screen the lurid unconscious of our new sexual politics.


"A triumph" - The Observer

Muses of the Mediterranean: Marina Deligianni

Muses of the Mediterranean: Marina Deligianni


Marina Deligianni, voice


Giorgos Stamatis, guitar


Pavlos Carvalho, bouzouki, cello


Mary Linda and Manolis Hiotis were like "the royal couple of Greek music". They were like the left and right hand of one body and one can not speak one name without thinking of the other. Their her lyrical and expressive voice gave life to the beautiful melodies of Hiotis' music. Together they injected Greek music with hit after hit of songs, many of which were influenced by Latin rhythms and lighter world music which were very different from other composers of popular music. However, to associate her only as a muse of Manolis Hiotis and a singer of only lighter would be doing her a grave injustice. She was an artist and musician of the highest calibre in her own right and performed and recorded with great success the songs of other composers such as Zabetas, Hadjidakis and Theodorakis, including some classic interpretations of songs from his Epitaphios album. Tonight we will be performing a set that covers the broad range of this iconic singer.


A Personal Note.

Marina needs no introduction to London audiences. Over the last 6 years she has become one of the most well known and loved personalities of the Greek music scene and has brought with her the living, breathing Greek tradition of female voices. Her voice has been compared to great singers such as Glykeria but for us she stands alone and unique, needing no comparison. Her passion and intensity moves us, the musicians, and the audience in a way that few people can.


Marina Deligianni was born and raised in Greece. Studied contemporary singing and harmony at Ethniko Odeio Athinon and has been working professionally along side great Greek musicians over the last 15 years such Mario, Dimitris Livanos, Vaggelis Liolios, Kyriakos Gouventas, Solon Lekkas. She lives and works in London the last five years, she is the leading female singer of Plastikes Karekles and one of the co-founders of the Rebetiko Carnival festival and charity.

Beneath The Clocktower (12A)

On every high street, up and down the country, thousands of independent traders face a daily battle for survival. No more so than in the fabled London ‘village’ of Crouch End, where each passing year sees  businesses close as the onslaught of increasing rents and rates as well as the shift to internet shopping and home delivery take their toll. Beneath The Clocktower is a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Harvey Marcus which explores the world of Crouch End’s longest serving small businesses, and the big characters behind them. This is not an action movie but it is a warm, politically relevant and often funny documentary about struggle, survival and success.


Screening will be introduced by director Harvey Marcus on the 25th of November.

Nae Pasaran! (15)

Felipe Bustos Sierra’s feature charts the incredible true story of the Scots who managed to ground half of Chile’s Air Force, from the other side of the world, in the longest single act of solidarity against Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship.


In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out the vital repairs of engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity. Bustos Sierra – himself the Scotland-based son of a Chilean exile – reunites inspirational figures Bob Fulton, Robert Somerville, Stuart Barrie and John Keenan to hear their story. With unprecedented access, Nae Pasaran also ventures much further to detail the horrors of the Pinochet years, meets survivors of the period and hears the Chilean side of the story.

Still Marching: Carve Her Name With Pride (PG)

Still Marching: Carve Her Name With Pride


+ Q&A on WW2 female special agents with historian Clare Mulley + book signing



Carve Her Name With Pride (PG)

Dir Lewis Gilbert, 1958, 114 mins


Virginia McKenna was nominated for a BAFTA for her portrayal of the real life Anglo-French war widow and mother Violette Szabo, who became a secret agent in occupied France during the Second World War. Directed in 1958 by Lewis Gilbert (Alfie, You Only Live Twice, Educating Rita), this powerful and moving film drama chronicles the dilemmas, sacrifices and challenges faced as Violette undergoes intensive training, followed by missions with the French Resistance and endures the horror of a  concentration camp.

Violette Szabo’s courage and achievements would eventually see her become the first woman to be awarded the George Cross. In this centenary year of (some) women getting the vote, the campaign to put the faces of Violette Szabo, Noor Inayat Khan and Odette Hallowes on the new £50 note has piqued interest in WW2 female special agents. The film/event series Still Marching...is riding the (crest of the) wave with a celebration of these resourceful, courageous and gender-busting sheroes. The screening of Carve Her Name With Pride is followed by a conversation and Q&A with feminist war historian Clare Mulley, about the 39 female SOE operatives of WW2 – an extraordinary group of all ages and classes, many faiths and nationalities, and equally diverse motivations, who often struggled for equal recognition of their achievements. Afterwards, Clare will be signing copies of her book The Spy Who Loved, the story of “Churchill’s favourite spy”, Christine Granville.



Part of the series Still Marching....100 Years of Women’s Protest in Film


Clare Mulley is a historian of the two World Wars, with a special interest in the roles and achievements of women in conflict.  She is the historian guide on an annual tour following in the footsteps of SOE agents in England and France, and is the author of The Spy Who Loved, about one of Britain’s first and longest serving female special agents of WW2, Polish-born Countess Krystyna Skarbek, aka Christine Granville. The book has been optioned by Universal Studios, and it led to Clare being decorated with Poland’s national honour, the Bene Merito.

Clare has written two other award-winning historical biographies: The Woman Who Saved the Children and The Women Who Flew for Hitler.  A regular contributor to TV, radio and print media and in demand for literary and history festivals, she recently gave a TEDx talk at Stormont and wrote this year's BBC Reith Lecture quiz.  www.claremulley.com

Evelyn (12A)

From the Academy Award® winning team behind THE WHITE HELMETS (2016) and VIRUNGA (2014), EVELYN documents the story of a family overcoming the unthinkable. On a walking odyssey across the United Kingdom, they confront a past they’ve been unable to talk about, whilst simultaneously repairing the fractures in their own relationships.


Director Orlando von Einsiedel turns the cameras on himself, as he and his parents and siblings embark on a journey in remembrance of their brother and son, Evelyn, who took his own life over a decade ago.


Along the way, they are faced with the realities of a walking mission - camping, exhaustion, the wet and cold. Yet despite these, and the challenges that come with remembering what happened to Evelyn, there are moments of happiness and humour as they recall the good memories that they buried alongside the painful ones.


The screening will feature a Q&A hosted by Kate Hardie with members of the film team & family.

The Groove Is Not Trivial (12A)

The Groove is Not Trivial follows master fiddler Alasdair Fraser’s personal journey in search of self expression, a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There he finds a universal pulse —a  groove — that runs through his virtuosic performances with cellist Natalie Haas and his dynamic teaching at his wildly popular, freewheeling fiddle camps in California, Scotland, and Spain. At his gatherings around the world for musicians of all ages and abilities, ‘the groove’ is a through-line from the past that sparks hopeful possibilities for the future.


Fraser is at the epicenter of a movement in which people are finding their own voices and a deep sense of community through the shared love and joy of music. A subversive empowerment is happening as people reclaim cultural roots in jeopardy of being lost.


The irrepressible Fraser proves that the groove in traditional music transcends toe-tapping fun – it can be a source of personal and political liberation.

Disobedience (15)

From Sebastián Lelio, writer-director of the Academy Award-winning A FANTASTIC WOMAN, DISOBEDIENCE is a timely and emotionally powerful tale set at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, of personal desires and the demands of faith.


When her estranged rabbi father suddenly passes away, Ronit (played by Oscar-winner and co-producer Rachel Weisz) returns from New York to the north London Orthodox Jewish community she rejected years previously after a scandalous transgression.


Ronit’s presence immediately courts further controversy when she unknowingly runs into Esti (Rachel McAdams), the wife of her strictly religious cousin Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) and the woman for whom she shared an illicit attraction in their childhood. This happy reunion soon reignites the two women’s burning, long-unrequited passions, an act of defiance that could alter the course of their lives forever.


Based on the novel of the same name by bestselling author Naomi Alderman and co-written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, DISOBEDIENCE is a critically acclaimed romantic drama that explores the fraught boundaries between spiritual devotion and sexuality.

A TRIBUTE TO MARIKA NINOU


It is very hard to speak in past tense about a figure “who engraved deep inside us the names of the gods of abjection and byzantine decadence with her voice's dagger” (Manos Hadjidakis). She reflects the ground breaking historic moments of contemporary Greece that marked her short life; the Catastrophe of Smyrna, her growing up in one of the core refugee neighbourhoods of Athens, World War II, The Civil War, the reconstruction of post-war Greece and the transformation of Greek Society. She sings her life, her heart and her pain out; her sincere, almost pervasive singing makes her recordings sound like she's then an there when you listen to them. “With her singing, she illustrates the woman of urban, grass-root society of her time” (Yorgos Papadakis) and transforms the way of singing, marking the technique of the next generations of female singers until today.


A Personal Note.


We are grateful and excited to have Isidora as a part of this series. She is returning to London after a powerhouse performance for the Rebetiko Carnival, June 2018. In the final concert of the festival, dedicated to “Women of Rebetiko” she performed certain songs of Marika Ninou to rapturous enthusiasm and applause from the public. She is a passionate and magnetic singer who clearly lives every word that she sings and she seemed the only possible choice for this particular tribute to one of Greece’s most iconic singers.

Isidora Bouziouri is an Edinburgh-based Greek singer and actress. She was born and raised in Athens, Greece. She studied Music & Theatre in Athens and in New York. She has experienced Greek folk music from a very early stage and she has performed as a singer in weddings, feasts and taverns across Greece for over 10 years. She has performed as a Jazz & Blues singer and she is keen on blending all these influences together. She has also been in numerous theatre-performances in Greece, Scotland and beyond and she keeps a passionate interest for Ancient Drama.

They Shall Not Grow Old (15)

A last chance to catch Peter Jackson's astounding film, followed by a re-play of a pre-recorded Q&A with Peter and Mark Kermode.


On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) presents the World Premiere of an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it.


Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. After months immersed in the BBC and Imperial War Museums’ archives, narratives and strategies on how to tell this story began to emerge for Jackson.


Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime.


Jackson and his team have used cutting edge techniques to make the images of a hundred years ago appear as if they were shot yesterday. The transformation from black and white footage to colourised footage can be seen throughout the film revealing never before seen details. Reaching into the mists of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans, the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war.

The Favourite (15)

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.
