Wild Rose (12A)

Rose-Lynn Harlan, played by BAFTA Rising Star nominee Jessie Buckley (Beast), is bursting with raw talent, charisma and cheek. Fresh out of jail and with two young kids, all she wants is to get out of Glasgow and make it as a country singer in Nashville. Her mum Marion (Julie Walters) has had a bellyful of Rose-Lynn’s Nashville nonsense. Forced to take responsibility, Rose-Lynn gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house (Sophie Okonedo). Directed by Tom Harper, Wild Rose is an uplifting story with an original soundtrack about family, dreams and reality, and three chords and the truth.


"The film sings, it soars - Jessie Buckley was born to be a star."

Ella Kemp - Sight and Sound


"Wild Rose is so much fun that you only half notice its left-turn from the star-is-born setup to something altogether richer and more emotionally satisfying."

Jamie Dunn - The Skinny

Happy As Lazzaro (12A)

Beloved by audiences and critics at Cannes (where it was awarded the Best Screenplay prize), Alice Rohrwacher’s beautiful, much-anticipated new film is beguiling allegory of love, loss and compassion exploring the troubled soul of Italy.


“Mesmerising. An instant classic. Rohrwacher draws from the past (tapping into literature and folklore as well as film) to interrogate present conditions and future possibilities. This movie feels bracingly new and also like something that has been here forever. It has the urgency of a news bulletin and the authority of a classic. What makes this a great movie, though — a film that acquires new depths of emotion and meaning each time you see it — is the piercing clarity of Alice Rohrwacher’s vision.”

The Ponds (12A)

In a world of constant flux and chaos, it's almost a shock to discover some experiences remain natural, unhurried and unchanged. In the middle of metropolitan London lies Hampstead Heath, 320 hectares of forest, parkland, wildlife plus three swimming ponds. People swim in them all year round, whatever the weather, just as they did in the time of Keats and Constable, and our cameras filmed them over 12 months as they swam, laughed, sang, complained, ruminated, philosophised and simply sought respite from all that life threw at them.

Donbass (15)

In the Donbass, a region of Eastern Ukraine, a hybrid war takes place, involving an open armed conflict alongside killings and robberies on a mass scale perpetrated by separatist gangs.


In the Donbass, war is called peace, propaganda is uttered as truth and hatred is declared to be love. A journey through the Donbass unfolds as a chain of curious adventures, where the grotesque and drama are as intertwined as life and death. This is not a tale of one region, one country or one political system. It is about a world, lost in post-truth and fake identities. It is about each and every one of us.


"A scathing portrait of a society where human interaction has descended to a level of barbarity more in keeping with late antiquity than the so-called contemporary civilized world."

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling.


Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris.

A Clockwork Orange (18)

Only two years away from its 50th anniversary, Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s 1962 decline-of-civilisation novel, A Clockwork Orange, remains a chilling, thrilling and unsettling cinematic vision of nihilistic violence and social control. Released by the BFI in cinemas around the UK from 5 April 2019, this will be the first UK-wide re-release of A Clockwork Orange since 2000, enabling another generation to see it on the big screen.


Set in a flamboyantly stylised near-future, where gangs of disenfranchised teenagers indulge in narcotic cocktails and revel in acts of ‘ultraviolence’, the film centres on charismatic but deadly Alex DeLarge (brilliantly portrayed by Malcolm McDowell in one of his most famous roles) and his band of equally brutal droogs; Dim (Warren Clarke), Georgie (James Marcus) and Pete (Michael Tarn). Eventually arrested and imprisoned, Alex shortens his sentence by agreeing to take part in a government-run experiment to cure offenders through aversion therapy – the Ludovico Technique – in which he is tied down, kept awake and forced to watch violent, sexual and anti-social activity while listening to Beethoven.


The story is narrated by Alex himself, speaking in ‘Nadsat’, a form of Russian-influenced English devised by Anthony Burgess who was also a linguist.


The violent attacks and rape scenes in the film made it highly controversial upon its release in the UK and in the glare of publicity Stanley Kubrick received death threats. He personally asked Warner Bros. to withdraw the film from distribution in 1974 and it was not seen on the big screen again in the UK until after his death in 1999.

When the memories of a life are lost in the snow, a final challenge remains. The toughest climb of all: to conquer the mind and rescue the man.

As inventor of the all metal ice axe, author of the International Mountain Rescue Handbook and founder of Glencoe Mountain Rescue he has been responsible for saving hundreds of lives, if not thousands. But at the age of 84, his accomplishments could not save him from being institutionalised against his will, suffering from delirium. After a spell in psychogeriatric detainment in a hospital in the Highlands of Scotland, during which he made many escape attempts – he emerged to find his memory gone. This film tells the story of his life by mirroring his greatest challenge: to recover his memories and rescue himself.

Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

This special event will bring together a quintet of musicians and friends from different bands who share the same passion for these 3 'giants' of Greek music.


The audience will listen to beloved melodies from Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis and Stavros Xarhakos who compossed them for different reasons during almost the same decades. Songs that dressed beautiful poems and coloured movies, that were inspired by political situations or talk about love and passion; some of them dynamic, some nostalgic but all of them meaningful.


If you share the same love for these composers, we hope to see you on 26.05.19 at the ArtHouse to join voices and feelings!

"Superbly shot, exquisitely paced and genuinely compelling and surprising - indeed astonishing...The Isle is the kind of cinema that is getting far too rare."

THE MODERN JUNGLE (La Selva Negra) is a portrait of globalization filtered through the  fever dream of its main character – a Mexican shaman, don Juan – who falls under the spell  of a pyramid-scheme-marketed nutritional supplement. Juan’s neighbor Carmen lives  simply, in harmony with the land her martyred husband paid for with his life. This film  documents their struggles and encounters with outside forces: from capitalism and  commodity fetish, to the culture of cinema, and the directors of this film. Five years in the making, THE MODERN JUNGLE is an intimate document of two people and their Zoque culture, yet simultaneously a story about consumerism, modernity and monoculture.

The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can sometimes bring us together, irrespective of age.  


Gentle in nature, this is a story of authentic adventure and relationship between son and father. The passing of time and changing relationships we have with our parents and children is fundamental to the human experience. So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, to embrace the unknown, and to strike out on their own adventures.   The film leaves the audience wanting to call their loved ones, dream big, and dare to believe.
