At the Rio

From Friday

Brooklyn (12A)

Saoirse Ronan is simply magnificent as she transforms from young wallflower to confident adult without a hint of melodrama in this touching and tender tale of family, memory, and making a new home.

Tangerine (15)

It’s Christmas Eve on the sun-blasted streets of Hollywood as two transsexuals set out on a manic odyssey – an electric, wildly subversive, often hilarious, ride on and beyond the fringes of LA’s subculture. A complete original which defies expectations at every turn.
The screening on Friday at 21.15 is followed by a Q&A with writer Chris Bergoch.

Saturday 14 November, 11.00am

Ghosthunters (PG)

When 11-year-old Tom discovers a slimy green ghost called Hugo in his cellar he is understandably afraid but soon realises that Hugo is an ASG (Averagely Spooky Ghost), who is not only completely harmless but also desperately in need of his help. A fun-filled family fantasy with a charm all of its own.

The Rio at 100 Double Bill


Regeneration (PG)

REGENERATION is a re-discovered movie milestone which with its religious themes, mobile camerawork, and potent evocation of its grim locations has been called the spiritual ancestor of Martin Scorsese’s MEAN STREETS.


+ The Cheat (PG)

A scandal in 1915 because of its explosive sexual and racial content, THE CHEAT also emphatically announced the arrival of director Cecil B. DeMille whose 40 year Hollywood career was just beginning.

Love 3D (18)

French cine-provocateur Gaspar Noé continues to extend boundaries and enter the voids where others rarely tread, and this time he does so in 3D. LOVE contains shocking and explicit moments but these give way to a revealing examination of love and sex that is portrayed with an all too rare honesty.

+ An exclusive filmed introduction from director Gaspar Noé.

Thursday 19 November, 7pm
