The Old Man And The Gun (12A)

Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.


"If this is truly Robert Redford's final performance, he's going out with an exclamation point."

Sorry To Bother You (15)

In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, Calif., telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green's career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.

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.

On every high street, up and down the country, thousands of independent traders face a daily battle for survival.

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.

The Last Movie (15)

Dennis Hopper followed the enormous international success of Easy Rider (1969) with this exuberant passion project – a delirious, free-wheeling epic production shot in Central America with an incredible cast (including Peter Fonda, Kris Kristofferson, Russ Tamblyn, Michelle Phillips, Tomas Milian and Sam Fuller) and an ambition to re-invent American cinema. Unseen for many years, this one-of-a-kind film can finally be experienced in a ravishing new 4K restoration.


"A critical, financial, personal, and possibly even spiritual catastrophe that with each passing day feels more like a masterpiece, Dennis Hopper’s The Last Movie is one of the great lost films of the 1970s. Upon its much-delayed release in 1971, the mind-altering neo-Western nearly ended its director-star’s career, before seeming to vanish without a trace for decades."

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.

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.

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.


Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

About A War (15)

Moving through the testimonies of Assaad, a right wing Christian intelligence officer; Ahed, a Palestinian refugee fighter and Nassim, a Communist commander, About a War unpicks the personal motivations, trauma and regret of militiamen who picked up arms during the Lebanese Civil War. With no official account of the conflict, their testimonies build a multi-perspective picture of a crucial turning point in Lebanese history that radically transformed the Middle East.


"a compelling and important film…Here we have the opportunity to engage with the impact of real violence on an evolving sensibility, and how youthful participation is regarded with the benefit of hindsight. I urge anyone who’s interested in the potential of film to investigate violence discursively – rather than portray it incontinently – to watch About a War.”
