T. S. Spivet (Cert TBC)

Venus in Fur (15)

3D / 2D Director Ken Loach Starring Barry Ward, Simone Kirby, Andrew Scott UK/Ireland 2014 109 mins

The true story of social activist Jimmy Gralton’s mission to energise a rural community in 1930s Ireland by opening a dance hall is told by Ken Loach and writer Paul Laverty (LOOKING FOR ERIC) with their trademark bittersweet vigour. Contains strong language and moderate violence.

0871 902 5737

Director Ryan Coogler Starring Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz USA 2013 85 mins

We already know the ending of Ryan Coogler’s assured debut because the events on which it is based made headlines in 2009. A young black man, Oscar Grant (Jordan), got into a fight aboard a San Francisco commuter train, and whilst lying prone on the platform restrained by police officers, he was shot dead by one of them. The event sparked both peaceful and violent protests, and the outrage is echoed in Coogler’s affecting yet grounded film about justice in an unjust world.

picturehouses.co.uk

Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet Starring Kyle Catlett, Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis France/ Canada 2013 TBC mins

When ten-year-old science prodigy T. S. Spivet wins an award from the Smithsonian for his perpetual motion machine, he leaves his eccentric Montana family behind and absconds to Washington aboard a freight train. His adventures en route, and his celebrity status once there, shed alternately comical, touching and revealing light on human frailties. Writer-director Jeunet (Micmacs, Amelie) invests this delightful film with his hallmark idiosyncrasies and visual panache.

PicturehouseatFACT

Director Roman Polanski Starring Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Seigner France/Poland 2013 96 mins French with English subtitles

Polanski serves up this witty and seductive chamber piece based on David Ives’ Tony Award-winning play. Venus In Fur is a head-spinning dive into a world of sex and power, where the line between acting and reality is dangerously blurred. Theatre director Thomas (Amalric) is struggling to cast the dominatrix lead in his production of the notorious Sacher-Masoch novella of the title. As if on cue, the abrasive Vanda (Seigner) arrives to audition, casting an intoxicating spell on him that spirals into a power-play beyond the stage. (Alliance Française)

Bright Days Ahead

Jersey Boys (15)

(15) Director Marion Vernoux Starring Fanny Ardant, Laurent Lafitte, Patrick Chesnais France 2013 94 mins French with English subtitles

Director Clint Eastwood Starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Christopher Walken USA 2014 134 mins

When dentist Caroline retires, her daughters pack her off to a string of banal evening classes. Luckily one of them is run by Julien, a handsome 30-something with an eye for the ladies – including older ones. With Fanny Ardant giving a standout lead performance, this funny and thought-provoking tale of one woman’s rather enjoyable late-life crisis is as refreshing as it is entertaining

Having previously brought jazz, country ’n’ western and the blues to the screen, Eastwood now takes on 1960s pop. Distinguished by the tingling falsetto of Frankie Valli (Lloyd Young, reprising his Broadway role), The Four Seasons had a string of international hits. This vibrant biopic is based squarely on the hit stage musical, with Christopher Walken playing the mobster who tries to muscle in on the act’s success.

From 27 June

Cold in July (Cert TBC) Director Jim Mickle Starring Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepherd, Don Johnson USA/France 2014 TBC mins

Placid Texan Richard Dane (Hall, TV’s Dexter) kills a burglar in selfdefence. The burglar’s father, Russel (Shepherd), is fresh out of jail, and unsettling scenes ensue as he menaces the Dane family. But when swaggering private eye-cum-pig

farmer Jim Bob Luke (Don Johnson) rolls up, the story takes some tense twists and turns as he, Russel and Dane form an uneasy alliance to uncover corruption on a horrific scale.

From 27 June

Chef (15)

Director Jon Favreau Starring Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jnr, Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, John Leguizamo, Oliver Platt USA 2014 114 mins

LA chef Carl Casper (Favreau) was once hailed as a culinary wunderkind, but now finds himself dispensing the same slick fare night after night, his creativity stifled. When a critic tweets a scathing review, Carl explodes in an outpouring of rage that goes viral. Mouthwatering foodie scenes are matched by touching comedy drama in this deceptively profound story of family, friendship and artistic integrity.

From 4 July

Lilting (Cert TBC) Director Hong Khaou Starring Ben Whishaw, Pei-Pei Cheng, Peter Bowles UK 2014 TBC mins

When his lover Kai (Andrew Leung) dies, Richard (Whishaw, Skyfall) and Junn, Kai’s Chinese-Cambodian mother (Cheng, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), share their grief. Junn is hampered by her lack of English, while Richard is forced to

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared (15)

A Hard Day’s Night (U)

Director Felix Herngren Starring Robert Gustafsson, Iwar Wiklander, Mia Skäringer, Alan Ford Sweden 2013 114 mins Swedish with English subtitles

This dark Scandinavian comedy is a succession of absurd chance encounters interlaced with bizarre, Zelig-like flashbacks. Allan Karlsson, played with subtle relish by the distinguished Gustafsson, bumbles his way from a nursing home into a seedy criminal netherworld, with a deliciously typecast Alan Ford (Snatch) as an enraged villain determined to recover the loot Karlsson has inadvertently appropriated.

0871 902 5737

Director Richard Lester Starring The Beatles UK 1964 88 mins

Richard Lester’s remarkably fresh Beatles semi-documentary captures The Beatles on the road to megastardom with screaming girls on every corner. A Hard Day’s Night stylishly gives a real sense of Sixties London whilst presenting the Fab Four in all their irreverent glory.

Aliens (15)

Director John Carpenter 1988 93mins

Director James Cameron 1986 148mins

A mixture of sci-fi shocker and horror, this 50s throwback is Carpenter’s homage to the B-Movie. It is the film responsible for the classic line: “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...and I’m all out of bubblegum…”

The only survivor of the Nostromo, Ripley is discovered in a deep sleep half a century later by a salvage ship. When she is taken back to Earth, she learns that a human colony was founded on the same planet where the aliens were first found.

Omar is a thoughtful young baker in love with Nadia (Leem Lubany). When he agrees to go with Nadia’s brother Tarek (Ehab Hourani), a senior militant, and their mutual friend Amjad (Samer Bisharat) on a mission to kill an Israeli soldier, it’s partly to gain Tarek’s respect so that he can ask for Nadia’s hand in marriage.

Director Ibrahim El-Batout 2012 96minss

Meet individuals involved in the 2011 uprising, a tortured dissident, a news presenter, a journalist and a secret policeman. Dark, fascinating, and not for the faint hearted.

But that act of violence soon spirals out of control: Omar is arrested and tortured by Israeli forces, who attempt to turn him into a collaborator and informant. Abu-Assad uses this tense set-up to fashion an ingenious twist on Othello that packs an unforgettable sting in the tail. 7pm / The Box / £6, £5 (Members & concs)

Monday 9 June, 6.15pm

Now: In the Wings on a World Stage Plus live satellite Q&A with Kevin Spacey Kevin Spacey, Sam Mendes and the Bridge Project Company go on the road in Now: In the Wings on a World Stage. In more than 200 performances across three continents, Kevin and the troupe reveal some of the most intimate moments behind the scenes of their staging of Shakespeare’s tragedy Richard

0871 902 5726 5737

III. Their story weaves around, and reflects on, excerpts from the play, and provides a great opportunity for those who have never experienced Spacey on stage to witness his immersive and captivating interpretation of Richard III.

picturehouses.co.uk

To some it is a flashy, gratuitously violent triumph of style over content, to others it is the film that confirmed Tarantino as one of the most distinguished and talented contemporary American directors. It is undeniably a superbly written, complex, ultra-violent, almost unbearably tense and often hilarious thriller with an outstanding cast and some surprising performances, most notably from John Travolta. Drawing his inspiration from the lurid lowlife characters found in the cheap yellow-paged crime novels of the 1930s and 40s, Tarantino develops the narrative structure he used in Reservoir Dogs; here intricate crosscutting and flashbacks are used to weave together three tales of smalltime criminal life in LA.

Director Francis Ford Coppola Starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino USA 1972 175 mins

Director Emile Ardolino Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey USA 1987 100 mins

A Puerto Rican youth is on trial for murder. Eleven of the jurors vote for conviction, but the 12th (Fonda) bravely holds out for justice in this gripping legal drama.

By almost any criterion, this is the most important American film of the 1970s: a subversive saga of family values, and an epic account of organised crime.

Director Toby Amies UK 2012 TBC mins

This bittersweet British comedy is the dramatic, funny and sometimes magical tale of six strangers whose lives become intertwined when they encounter an escaped parrot.

Berlioz’s opera, a tale of thwarted love, elopement, intrigue, disguise, mistaken identity, secular merrymaking and sacred ceremony, is spectacularly forged anew by director Terry Gilliam and ENO Music Director Edward Gardner.

Contains infrequent strong language and moderate sex references.

Oscar-winner Tanovic (No Man’s Land) focuses on a Roma family in BosniaHerzegovina. When Senada has a miscarriage, husband Nazif can’t afford her healthcare. The dire consequences throw into stark focus the plight of Roma people. Contains strong language and references to wartime atrocities.

Drako Zarharzar was once a muse for Dalí, Jarman and Warhol. Now robbed by amnesia of his capacity to create new memories, he pieces his days together from notes and mementos that hang from the ceiling. This film is a voyage into Drako’s world.
