At the Rio

From Friday

Macbeth (15)

Michael Fassbender combines sexy, charismatic and demonic in the title role, and Marion Cotillard is superb as his manipulative Lady.

Sicario (15)

A magnificent edge-of-the-seat thriller that portrays the world as a labyrinthine pit of existential nightmare proportions and one in which only grim determination will ensure survival.

Saturday 17 October, 11.00am

Strange Magic (U)

A madcap animated fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades, from Elvis to Lady Gaga, help tell the tale of a colourful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked off by the battle over a magic potion.

Fri 16 & Sat 17 Oct, 11.30pm

Straight Outta Compton(15)

The story, the struggles, the controversy behind one the most influential rap groups of all time: the revolutionary N.W.A. It’s an epic biopic for the ages thanks to F Gary Gray’s compelling direction and a great cast

Sunday 18 October
Double Bill


Theeb (15)

In the Ottoman province of Hijaz during World War I, Theeb, a young Bedouin boy eager for adventure, embarks on a perilous desert journey to guide a British officer to a secret destination. With a cast of non-professional actors from one of the last of Jordan’s nomadic Bedouin tribes, THEEB is a riveting adventure of innocence and conflict in a changing world.


+ The President (15)

Exiled Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s uncompromising, challenging and gripping parable/satire on the trappings and traps of power certainly echoes real-life events, but its resonance and relevance is universal and timeless.
