Blade Runner: The Final Cut (15)

An iconic sci-fi classic which, with extraordinary sets, groundbreaking special effects, stunning costumes and photography, brilliantly evokes a dystopian future vision of breathtaking, glistening city vistas, rain-drenched, neon-lit streets and dark interiors.

Sun 30 Aug, 2.15pm
P’Tit Quinquin (15)
An absurdist, slapstick, metaphysical and at times disturbing murder mystery. The tone may well be comic, but director Bruno Dumont touches on numerous issues that are part of his rural, Picard-speaking corner of France: immigration, racism, marital discord, illicit sex, and, of course, violence.
Bank Holiday Double Bill
Monday 31 August
Touch of Evil (12A)

Orson Welles’ Hollywood directorial swansong is a virtuoso foray into film noir, exhibiting his extraordinary sense of cinematic style, vivid characterisation and an almost Shakespearian flair for tragedy.

+ The Third Man (PG)

A beautiful new restoration of a timeless classic, stylishly directed by Carol Reed, cleverly scripted by Graham Greene with Oscar winning photography by Robert Krasker, all set to Anton Karas’ evocative zither score.

Wed 2 Sep, 8.45pm

Glen or Glenda? (PG)

Hard to Be a God (18)

A visually astonishing, phantasmagoric adaptation, HARD TO BE A GOD is an almost tactile recreation of an unnervingly recognisable alternative universe, drenched in blood, mud and the tears of the oppressed. And it is, of course, a masterpiece… 

Sat 19 Sep, 11.30pm

Buzzard (15)

Impossible to categorize, and even more impossible to ignore, BUZZARD is a fascinating, bracingly original, deliriously daring and often very funny dive into lo-fi cinematic psychosis.
