From Friday

From Friday
Love & Friendship (U)

This wickedly funny, corset-stretching adaptation of Jane Austen’s LOVE & FRIENDSHIP combines the meeting of the maverick director Whit Stillman of such modern classics as BARCELONA and THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO and the biting humour of the great 19th Century novelist  – a superlative screwball comedy of matchmaking and heart-breaking that sparkles from beginning to convoluted end, and with its modern strain of cynicism an equally constant delight, this is, dear reader, a most particular pleasure indeed.

From Saturday to Thursday
Zootropolis (PG)

Disney’s latest animated triumph is fast and furious family fare with a message. The modern mammal metropolis of Zootropolis is a city like no other,  a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery. Yes, it’s a bunny/buddy movie and a cute, clever, bright and brilliant one!

Saturday at 3pm
Solaris  (PG)

ANDREI TARKOVSKY: SCULPTING TIME SEASONOne of the world’s most visionary, celebrated and influential filmmakers, Andrei Tarkovsky made just seven features before his tragically early death. Each film is an artistic masterpiece of extraordinary visual beauty. In association with Curzon/Artificial Eye, we are delighted to present the films of Andrei Tarkovsky with new digital transfers of seven timeless and enduring landmarks of world cinema.

On a space station orbiting the ocean-covered planet Solaris, cosmonaut Kris Kelvin arrives to investigate a series of mysterious and bizarre occurrences among the crew. What he discovers are supernatural phenomena that cause repressed and haunting memories to take on physical form, including that of Kelvin’s late wife. Through her, Kelvin attempts to communicate with the forces responsible which appear to be emanating from the mysterious planet itself. Director Andrei Tarkovsky transcends the normal conventions of the science fiction genre, and the result is a moving and unsettling vision of memory and humanity which has often been compared to Kubrick’s 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.

The season continues on Saturday June 4th with STALKER.
