The Collini Case Der Fall Collini

Fri 8 Oct 16:15 Sat 9 Oct 20:30 Sun 10 Oct 19:45

A rookie defence lawyer takes on a bizarre murder case in director Marco Kreuzpaintner’s seamlessly crafted thriller. The winner of our audience award for best film at this year’s festival, The Collini Case follows young lawyer Caspar Leinan assigned to defend a retired Italian worker (Franco Nero) who is accused of killing a wealthy industrialist. However, Caspar had been a protegee of the murdered man who he considered a father figure. Structured in three separate timelines The Collini Case deals with echoes of Nazism and packs a punch at the end. Leaning on the inherent intrigue of the narrative and the strength of his cast, Kreuzpaintner keeps things simple and engaging eschewing flashy aesthetics. This is an intelligent, unsettling and pertinent legal drama that was this year’s Surprise Film at the Chichester International Film Festival, and winner of the Audience Award.

Romantic Road

Fri 8 Oct 13:30 Sat 9 Oct 18:00 Sun 10 Oct 16:45 + Q&A A London lawyer and wife re-define later life by motoring across rural India in their battered 1936 vintage car. We welcome Rupert and Jan Grey - and of course their indispensible Rolls Royce - for a Q&A after the Sunday screening.

Invited to a human rights festival in Bangladesh as guests of honour Rupert and Jan decide to drive there in their family car - a notoriously battered 1936 Rolls Royce. They ship the Rolls to Mumbai and motor across India to Dhaka. They fall into company with tea-wallahs and maharajahs, dodge tribal conflicts and battle border officials ultimately landing their car in the hands of the Bangladeshi Customs. This is a rare glimpse into a uniquely inspired expedition that redefines later-life. Side by side, they drove for six months and covered over 5000 miles. Though Rupert was at the wheel, Jan quietly propels the journey with a gentle strength, and we witness their lasting love grow stronger through this incredible experience.

Free Community Event

The Power of Film Films which influenced public opinion and the law

Sat 9 Oct 10:00 - 14:30 (Auditorium) Free - Bookings in Advance Led by Rosemary Coxon and the Cinema Education Team, we welcome: law students from Bishop Luffa school and the University of Chichester, representatives from Stonepillow and local law firms, and John Coldstream, the official biographer of Dirk Bogarde – star of ‘Victim’. We will look in detail at clips from two films which were outstanding in their day for bravely and explicitly tackling the laws of the time and influencing public opinion.

Victim (1961) - Director Basil Dearden

This film was a landmark in the history of cinema and British society. It fearlessly tackled the existing law governing homosexual offences and, by doing so, eased the path towards partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967.

Cathy Come Home (1966) - Director Ken Loach

Controversial, moving and brilliantly acted – this film is arguably the most influential TV drama ever broadcast. Watched by 10 million people the film provoked major public and political discussion and was instrumental in the foundation of the charities Shelter and Crisis. 10:00 to 14:30 with short breaks and a lunch break. Special Event

Henry Beltran Farewell

Sun 10 Oct 13:30 - SOLD OUT All proceeds donated to PACSO This rescheduled event which will feature the film ‘High Wind to Jamaica’ (which included a young Henry in the cast), and a short drinks & nibbles party afterwards in the Jubilee Hall, as we thank our ex Front of House Manager for his decade of dedicated work at New Park Cinema.

Henry retired in April 2020 and had been an absolute treasure and is missed by us all. Henry has asked that all the profits raised from this event to be donated to the Parents and Carers Support Organization (PACSO), a partner organization of ours which enables children (and carers) who would normally not be able to go to a cinema, enjoy this experience that we all take for granted. 160m 4

Summer of Soul

Fri 8 Oct 19:45

Sat 9 Oct 15:00

(…Or, when the Revolution could not be televised) Deftly interweaving incredible live footage with a series of revealing interviews, ‘Summer of Soul’ captures the spirit and context of a watershed moment while tying it firmly to the present. ‘Summer Of Soul’ is a feature documentary about the legendary 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival which celebrated African American music and culture and promoted Black pride and unity. ‘Summer Of Soul’ shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest. It is a piece of power-to-the-people-art, featuring dizzyingly rich footage that has been forgotten and neglected until now. A brief glimpse at he line-up reveals a remarkable list of talent including BB King, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight and Sly and the Family Stone. US 2021 Questlove 117m

La Cha Cha

Fri 15 Oct 13:30 Tue 19 Oct 19:45 Sat 16 Oct 16:45 Sun 17 Oct 16:45 (Socially Distanced screening) Solti (Liam Hourican) is on a road trip to scatter his grandfather’s ashes, when he stumbles across a holiday park with a community of retired characters, living off grid and having the time of their lives.

He soon discovers that feisty owner Libby Rees (Ruby Ashbourne Serkis) and her brother Damien (Sonny Ashbourne Serkis) are struggling to keep the place, and community, going. But they have a very unusual plan. Shot entirely on iPhones, director Allen describes this very funny UK Indie as a counterculture rom-com. UK 2021 Kevin Allen 100m

12 Mighty Orphans

Fri 15 Oct 16:45 Wed 20 Oct 19:45 (Socially Distanced screening) Thu 21 Oct 19:45 Haunted by his past, a devoted high school football coach leads a scrawny team of orphans to the state championship during the Great Depression.

Rusty Russell (Luke Wison) arrives at the Masonic School for Orphans and creates a football team The Mighty Mites with some of the orphan boys. Over the course of their winning season these underdogs and their resilient spirit became an inspiration to their city, state, and an entire nation in need of a rebound, even catching the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This is a family friendly feel-good movie that will delight anyone looking for an uplifting experience after so long a period of gloom. You don’t need to know about American Football to enjoy the film’s charms. US 2021 Ty Roberts 118m

The Many Saints of Newark

Sat 16 Oct 19:45 Thu 21 Oct 16:45 Mon 18 Oct 19:45 Wed 20 Oct 13:30 (Socially Distanced screening) A brilliant gangster film in its own right, this prequel to ‘The Sopranos’ is a dynamic and thrilling portrait of a mob boss to be.

Young Tony (Michael Gandolfini) grows up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark’s history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family. His uncle Dickie (Alessandro Nivola) struggles through life, but influences his impressionable nephew to become the all-powerful mob boss we’ll later come to know. Tony Soprano was one of television’s most intriguing anti-heroes so it is fascinating to see what shaped his life and personality. USA 2021 Alan Taylor 135m 6

Next Door Nebenan

Fri 15 Oct 19:45 Mon 18 Oct 13:30 Tue 19 Oct 16:45 Daniel Brühl plays himself, sort of, in his directorial debut which mocks actorly self-importance and Berlin’s creeping gentrification.

Daniel is heading to a London casting call for an inane-sounding superhero blockbuster that will elevate his career to new heights. Taking a time-out at his local bar before his flight he meets Bruno (Peter Kurth) an embittered neighbour with his sights set on ruining Daniel’s morning, and more besides. An amusing, accomplished debut, ‘Next Door’ works best as tart meta comedy, becoming increasingly tense as it spirals into an obsessive revenge thriller. Brühl clearly has the director’s gift for smart and snappy filmmaking especially as most of this entertaining two hander is set in a bar. This is a mercilessly honest film that skewers celebrity’s hollow soul. (Subtitles) Germany 2021 Daniel Brühl 92m

Balloon Qi Qiu

Sun 17 Oct 19:45 Tue 19 Oct 13:30 A Tibetan family struggles against the conflicting dictates of spirituality, politics and free will under China’s one-child policy.

Tibet, 1980s: Dargye and Drolkar’s two boisterous youngest sons have blown up their parents’ condoms like balloons. Not only does this outrage their entire village, but more practically: they have no more condoms. The shepherd couple already have three sons, and as China has recently introduced its one-child policy, they can’t have any more. Both a gorgeously intimate family drama and an idiosyncratic artistic statement flecked with humour and sorrow, but alive always to the co-existence of the banal with the spiritual. (Subtitles) China 2019 Pema Tseden 102m Classics Restored & Reissued

The Maltese Falcon

Sat 16 Oct 13:30 Wed 20 Oct 16:45 (Socially Distanced Screening) Suspenseful, labyrinthine, and brilliantly cast, The Maltese Falcon is one of the most influential noirs -- as well as a showcase for Humphrey Bogart at his finest.

In this noir classic, detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) gets more than he bargained for when he takes a case brought to him by a beautiful but secretive woman (Mary Astor). As soon as Miss Wonderly shows up, trouble follows as Sam’s partner is murdered and Sam is accosted by a man (Peter Lorre) demanding he locate a valuable statuette. John Huston directs with commendable restraint creating the prototype film noir – claustrophobic, perverse and intensely enjoyable. ‘This is one of the best examples of actionful and suspenseful melodramatic story telling in cinematic form.’ Variety USA 1941 John Huston 100m

Studio Talk

Andrea Levy and Zadie Smith Fri 15 Oct 14:00 (Studio) Tickets £6.50 (Friends/Under 25’s - £5) To mark Black History Month, an illustrated talk by the Chichester Cinema Education Team, which will look at the TV adaptations of two novels by each of these British-Jamaican authors. Andrea Levy, born in London to Jamaican parents, her father having crossed on the Windrush, died in 2019 at the age of 62, leaving behind two collections of short stories and five novels, including ‘Small Island’ and ‘The Long Song’. The first concerns a Jamaican man who returns to England after WW2, having served in the RAF, while the second is set on a sugar plantation in 19th century Jamaica. Zadie Smith was also born in London, to a Jamaican mother and an English father, and she is the also the author of five novels, including ‘White Teeth’, an epic narrative of multicultural postwar England and NW, a tragicomic London story. As with our previous Page to Screen events, the Education Team will be considering how successfully these stories navigated the transition from the book to the small screen, including a range of clips from each series. 120m

Tickets £12.50 (Friends/Students £10.00) In his brief career Raphael shaped the course of Western culture like few artists before or since. This landmark exhibition looks at Raphael’s celebrated paintings and drawings as well as his work in architecture, poetry, and design for sculpture, tapestry, and prints.

Marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, the greatest exhibition ever held of his works took place in Rome. Exhibition on Screen was granted exclusive access to this once-in-a-lifetime show.

With unprecedented loans from the Louvre, Uffizi, National Gallery of Art, the Prado Museum and more, the exhibition and this film provide an unprecedented opportunity to see the breadth of Raphael’s skill, creativity and ingenuity. Award-winning director Phil Grabsky provides a fresh look at this giant of the Renaissance, and shows why he is considered one of the all-time greats. UK 2021 Phil Grabsky 88m

Even Mice Belong in Heaven

Mon 25 Oct 13:30 Thu 28 Oct 13:30 A mouse and a fox meet in animal heaven. Once mortal enemies they develop an unlikely friendship in this charming animation.

This is a beautiful stop motion animation using over a hundred puppets and eleven sets. Whizzy has been trying to follow in her father’s footsteps, but it’s not easy for a mouse to be brave. When he tries to steal a handful of fur from a sleeping fox, Whitebelly, the pair end up in an accident, waking up in heaven. Despite the animals being sworn enemies, they must reluctantly work together in order to avoid water and find happiness. Having lost their natural instincts, the duo forge an unlikely bond. This will delight younger audiences with its inherent magic while adults will marvel at the dynamic animation and stunning imagery. See online for Special £2 Offer.

His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga takes over the reins from Sam Mendes but don’t expect any genre busting re-invention, instead settle for the splendid locations, stunts, gadgets and glamour.

L’Homme Qui a Vendu Sa Peau

A Syrian refugee turns his body into an artwork, but at what cost?

The Man Who Sold His Skin

Sam Ali, a Syrian young man, took refuge in Lebanon to flee the Syrian civil war. There, he meets Jeffrey Godefroi, a famous tattoo artist, who makes Mr Ali’s back his canvas for a piece of work. Soon, Sam becomes a living work of art, worth an astronomical sum on the art market. Paradoxically, it becomes easier for him to travel to Europe as an artwork than as a refugee. But what he thought of as freedom turns out to be anything but. A provocative contemporary take on the Faustian bargain. Both a satire of the elitist and manipulative art circles, as well as a critique of the world’s dehumanizing apathy towards the international refugee crisis, (Subtitles) Tunisia / France / Belgium 2021 Kaouther Ben Hania 104m 01243 786650



Fire Shut Up In My Bones Delayed Live from The Met

Sun 24 Oct 12:45 Tickets £20.00 (Friends/Students £17.50) The Met’s first performance of an opera by a Black composer. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir.

The New York Times praised the work after its 2019 world premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis as “bold and affecting” and “subtly powerful.” Featuring a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown—two of the creators of the Met’s sensational recent production of Porgy and Bess—co-direct this new staging; Brown, who is also the production’s choreographer, becomes the first Black director to create a mainstage Met production. Baritone Will Liverman, one of opera’s most exciting young artists, stars as Charles, alongside sopranos Angel Blue as Destiny/Loneliness/Greta and Latonia Moore as Billie. 175m including 30m interval Auditorium Talk

Satyajit Ray The Big River Flows Sat 30 Oct 10:30 (Auditorium) Tickets £6.50 (Friends/Under 25’s - £5) To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the true greats of the cinema, Bengali director Satyajit Ray, Patrick Hargood, Deputy Education Officer, looks back at his extraordinary body of work in a talk featuring a wide range of clips. Born into a middle class Bengali family, Satyajit Ray did not attend film school, and was one of the first to make the transition into movies from the world of advertising. He was, however, an avid cinema fan as a young man, and, on a visit to England, watched dozens of films, making notes on the techniques he observed. It is nevertheless a miracle on a par with ‘Citizen Kane’ that his very first film, ‘Pather Panchali’, should turn out to be such a masterpiece of realist cinema. This talk will include a breathtaking range of clips from ‘The Apu Trilogy’, ‘The Music Room’, ‘Charulata’ and many others. 120m Special Offer: We will be screening the film ‘Charulata’ on Sat 6 Nov 15:00. Tickets for the film plus the Satyajit Ray talk - £14 (Friends / Under 25’s - £11) 12

Focus on the Documentary

The Velvet Underground

Sat 30 Oct 20:15 Wed 3 Oct 16:45 Todd Haynes delves into The Velvet Underground – the band that created a new sound and changed the music world.

Haynes appears to have vacuumed up every photograph, home-movie and archival footage of the band and stitched it all into a dazzllng document that feels like a time-machine kaleidoscope. As a collage of the period, ‘The Velvet Underground’ is dazzling - a hypnotic act of highwire montage. You can tell that Haynes wants to take us as close to this band as possible, and if that means his entire documentary is going to have to be a kind of poetic sleight-of-hand trick, then so be it. USA 2021 Todd Haynes 110m

Chichester Cinema at New Park supporting the wider community We are committed to extending and developing the love of Cinema, not just amongst those who are able to attend screenings. Over the last 18 months, we have introduced three initiatives: Cinema in a Box; Movie Magic in a Box; and Cinema in a Lunch Box. We launched ‘Cinema in a Box’ in mid-2020 where we provide a recent DVD together with delicious cakes supplied by COOK to residential care homes in the local area. Having taken steps to support the older generation, we then looked at how we could work alongside some younger members of our local community. ‘Movie Magic in a Box’ was born! We put together a box of goodies including a Just Eat voucher, Netflix subscription, plus popcorn and Montezuma’s chocolate, and donated one to every child under the Snowdrop Trust umbrella. The Snowdrop Child Reggie Apuldram Centre looks after adults with learning difficulties, and from September 2021 we have started ‘Cinema in a Lunch Box’ special Monday morning screenings for their members, accompanied by a lunch box from Splits in Chichester. These initiatives could not function without the generous support of those who support Chichester Cinema at New Park. We hope to continue and extend these projects as well as offering further links to the local community where we see an opportunity to share our love of film. Throughout the course of the coming year we will keep you posted with the schemes and ideas that we hope some of you will feel able to support, either as volunteers or by making a donation.

The Green Knight

Fri 29 Oct 20:15 Sun 31 Oct 16:15 Mon 1 Nov 16:30 Tue 2 Nov 13:00 (Subtitled for Hard of Hearing) Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight.

A different take on a classic story that sees the Green Knight challenge the court: any knight who is able to land a blow on him will win his green axe. However, that knight must receive an equal blow a year’s hence. Gawain beheads him but the Knight rides away holding his own head. David Lowery’s riff on Arthurian legend is full of profound truth and awe-inspiring spectacle, Gawain is a deeply flawed man who is struggling to find a path for himself and Patel captures this internal strife with a confidence that is marvellous to see. This is an absorbing adventure that casts a fantastical spell. Unique and unforgettable. Ireland/Canada/USA 2021 David Lowery 130m


Beethoven’s 9th Symphony Ballet

Sun 31 Oct 13:30 Tickets £15.00 (Friends/Students £12.50)

NHK Hall Tokyo Maurice Béjart’s compelling staging of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony has been enchanting audiences worldwide since its inception and its idea of universal brotherhood remains highly topical. “Alle Menschen werden Brüder” (All men will be brothers) is the powerful message communicated by the unforgettable music and choreography. From the stage of the NHK Hall in Tokyo 250 dancers and musicians send this message out into the world. “It is a ‘manifestation’, in the deepest sense of the word.” Although the ballet was planned purely as an interpretation of Beethoven’s music, Béjart added texts from Nietzsche, Schiller and others to the program notes. These texts underline the major theme of universal brotherhood, a union of races and peoples culminating with the 4th movement’s ‘Ode to Joy’ and that “All men become brothers”. 90m No interval 14

To launch this year’s French Film Festival UK, we present one of the hits of the recent Chichester Film Festival, which sees a humiliated but talented chef turn his fortunes around in 18th century France. In 1789 France, prior to the dawn of the Revolution, gastronomy remains strictly the domain of the aristocrats and the prestige of a noble house is dependent on the quality and reputation of its table. When the talented cook Manceron (Grégory Gadebois) serves an unapproved dish of his own creation, the repercussions are brutal, and he is promptly dismissed. He swears off his passion until the arrival of a mysterious woman (Isabelle Carré) who helps him create France’s very first restaurant. A wildly enjoyable tale of reignited passion, mentorship, and revenge. (Subtitles) France 2021 Eric Besnard 112m 16

Wes Anderson’s love letter to journalists set in the French outpost of an American newspaper that brings to life a collection of stories published in ‘The French Dispatch’. This is Wes Anderson at his most Wes Anderson – breezy, cheeky vignettes that are arch, whimsical and melancholically humorous. The three stories in the anthology begin with Benicio del Toro’s imprisoned artist and smooth-talking art dealer Adrian Brody trying to make him a success. The second concerns Timothée Chalamet as a student radical while the third is a rollicking crime caper in which the son of a police chief is kidnapped by a gangster in the shape of Edward Norton. This is unlikely to sway any Anderson sceptics however, one thing’s for sure: there is nothing quite like ‘The French Dispatch’ – except Anderson’s other films, of course.

Have you thought about volunteering at the cinema? We have a thriving group of volunteers who perform ushering duties for each performance. Our ushers give half an hour of their time before the film to assist ticketholders entering the auditorium. In exchange they get to watch the film for free! Volunteers choose which films they would like to usher, and they can do as many or as few as they like. Ushering is sociable and enjoyable and also a vital part of the cinema’s operation.

The Last Duel

Fri 5 Nov 19:45 Sat 6 Nov 20:15 Mon 8 Nov 13:30 Tue 9 Nov 19:45 Thu 11 Nov 16:45 (Socially Distanced Screening)

Ridley Scott’s epic tale of two French knights and former friends who come to blows after one rapes the other’s wife. It is a relief that the victim, Jean de Carrouges’ wife Margueritte, plays a central role in what could have been a macho chest-thumping exercise. She bravely accuses Jacques LeGris of the crime which leads to the eponymous confrontation between the two men played by Matt Damon and Adam Driver. Based on actual events, Jodie Comer’s Margueritte is destined to burn should her husband lose the duel. Scott knows how to handle this sort of thing in his sleep and with Affleck and Damon co-writing the screenplay the film is a far more interesting and nuanced product than it looks at first glance. Thankfully there are no silly accents. USA/UK 2021 Ridley Scott 142m


Spartacus Live Bolshoi Ballet

Sun 7 Nov 15:00 Tickets £17.50 (Friends/Students £15.00) A rollicking night out with the Bolshoi in this production brimming with virtuosity and spectacle.

‘Spartacus’, based on the account of a slave rebellion in Italy in 73BC, and made popular by Stanley Kubrick’s 1960 film, is a perfect Soviet allegory of an oppressed, noble populace fighting bravely to overthrow a fascist, decadent ruling class. It’s a big, thumping warhorse of a ballet, set to a big, thumping score by Aram Khachaturian, and it is thrillingly enjoyable for the pyrotechnical feats of its leading dancers, the slightly camp silliness of its balletic warfare, its melodramatic pas de deux and cinematic narrative sweep. “the ballet, for all its focus on soloist virtuosity, is also an ensemble tour de force, a marvellous display of might from the Bolshoi corps. Spartacus is still a ballet for the masses, on stage and off.” The Guardian. 170m approx including interval 18

Josep Sun 7 Nov 18:30 French illustrator Aurel investigates the life of the Catalan republican cartoonist and exile Josep Bartolí, who was detained by the Gestapo and sent to various concentration camps after crossing the border into France to flee the Spanish Civil War. Told through the memories of an elderly dying gendarme who encountered him in the French concentration camp, it follows Bartolí’s arrival in Mexico after jumping from a train transporting him to another camp, where he met Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, before living and working in the United States. With the voices of Sergi López and Sílvia Pérez Cruz, it won prizes at the Tokyo Anime Awards, Anima and the European Film Awards, a best animated film César and was a Cannes official selection last year.

Charulata The Lonely Wife

Sat 6 Nov 15:00

The frustrated wife of a newspaper editor falls in love with her cousin-in-law in this exquisite drama of repressed desire shot in glowing black and white.

Satyajit Ray’s masterpiece is set in Calcutta in British India: Charulata, played by the hypnotically beautiful Madhabi Mukherjee, is the bored, cultured wife of a newspaper editor and proprietor who prides himself on being a bold free thinker. He invites his cousin Amal to stay to nourish his Charulata’s creative impulses. They bond over literature but soon their interest in each other grows. ‘There is such miraculous clarity here, such great acting, staged with theatrical aplomb and shot with unshowy genius. It has the effortless fluency and gaiety of a Shakespearean comedy.’ The Guardian. USA 1942 Irving Rapper 117m We will be hosting an Illustrated talk ‘Satyajit Ray - The Big River Flows’ in the Auditorium on Sat 30 Oct 10:30. Special Offer: Tickets for the film ‘Charulata’ plus the ‘Satyajit Ray Talk’ - £14 (Friends / Under 25’s - £11) 01243 786650



Fri 12 Nov 13:00 Sat 13 Nov 19:45 Sun 14 Nov 19:45 Mon 15 Nov 13:15 Tue 16 Nov 16:30 (Socially Distanced Screening) Wed 17 Nov 13:00 Thu 18 Nov 19:45 Denis Villeneuve’s slow-burn space opera fuses the arthouse and the multiplex to create an epic of otherworldly brilliance.

Timothée Chalamet plays Paul Atreides, unsure of his powers and questioning the merits of the mountainous task before him. His father, the Duke, has been handed stewardship of the desert planet Arrakis, source of a magical substance called “spice”, which extends life and fuels space travel. But Arrakis, is not entirely deserted. It is home to vast worms that can rise up with little warning, and an oppressed people – the Fremen. ‘Dune reminds us what a Hollywood blockbuster can be. Implicitly, its message written again and again in the sand, Denis Villeneuve’s fantasy epic tells us that big-budget spectaculars don’t have to be dumb or hyperactive, that it’s possible to allow the odd quiet passage amid the explosions.’ The Guardian. USA/Canada 2021 Denis Villeneuve 155m

Fri 12 Nov 16:30 Sat 13 Nov 13:30 (Socially Distanced screening) Mon 15 Nov 19:45 Tue 16 Nov 13:00 (Subtitled for Hard of Hearing) Wed 17 Nov 16:30 (Socially Distanced screening) Thu 18 Nov 16:15 Evan Hansen, a high school senior with Social Anxiety disorder and his journey of self-discovery and acceptance following the suicide of a fellow classmate.

Deception Tromperie

Fri 12 Nov 19:45 London – 1987. An American novelist living for a time in London converses with his wife, his mistress, and other female characters he may have dreamed up.

Adapted from Philip Roth’s 1980 novel of the same name, Arnaud Desplechin’s latest foray stars Denis Podalydès as a famous American writer living in exile in London. His life is captured through his snatched conversations with the women in his past and present - his English mistress (Léa Seydoux), who visits him regularly in the studio that serves as their refuge; A student he loved in another life (Emmanuelle Devos); A former lover confined to a hospital in New York (Anouk Grinberg). Desplechin delivers a powerful, haunting story of sex and loyalty, love and deceit. (Subtitles) France 2021 Arnaud Desplechin 105m

Another World Un Autre Monde

Mon 15 Nov 17:00 After social dramas ‘At War’ and ‘The Measure of a Man’, Stéphane Brizé explores the world of corporate work.

Vincent Lindon plays Philippe, a workaholic executive, opposite Sandrine Kiberlain as his long-suffering wife, brought to breaking point by the demands of his job. She’s going because the man she loves has slowly allowed himself to be consumed by the pressure of his job. An executive in an American industrial group who’s caught between a rock and a hard place, Philippe no longer knows how to satisfy his superiors’ demands and is running out of steam. Brizé’s story - which premiered at the recent Venice Film Festival to critical acclaim - and the way it is told, are absolutely of the moment. A nervously roaming camera closes in on faces filled with quiet desperation; the talk that reduces people’s lives to numbers is counterpointed by telling silences. When ‘Another World’ reaches a satisfying pay-off in the final scene, you feel that we have all earned it. (Subtitles) France/Belgium 2021 Stéphane Brizé 96m


Focus on the Documentary


Sun 14 Nov 17:00 Tue 16 Nov 20:00 In her directorial debut, Sadie Frost pairs archive footage with dramatized scenes (featuring Camilla Rutherford as Quant) with striking creativity.

One of the most influential artists of the 20th Century worldwide, Mary Quant was at the vanguard of the style revolution of the 60s and 70s, leading the charge away from convention and conservatism through the championing of ground-breaking designs including the miniskirt and hot pants, plus an ingeniously creative partnership with hair stylist, Vidal Sassoon. Quant’s fresh designs and irreverent style shaped a generation and heralded the arrival of the ‘swinging sixties’. Her impact on the business of fashion and contemporary design can still be felt today across the globe. Original interviews with Quant family members and titans of the fashion and beauty industry including Jasper Conran, Kate Moss, Charlotte Tilbury & Vivienne Westwood. UK 2021 Sadie Frost 86m

Sat 13 Nov 17:00 In 1968 the world was exploding – millions of students and workers were on the march in every square of every city the world over – and one piece of shrapnel that rocketed out of those times was Costa Gavras’ ‘Z’.

His political thriller is just as searing hot today as it was then. As revolution was being threatened in Paris, and as Soviet tanks rolled over Prague’s cobblestoned streets, and while students were being massacred in Mexico City, in Greece democracy was being demolished and every sign of dissent there would be squashed beneath the bloody boots of military men. The letter Z was the symbol used by all those people who were attacked during those seven years of junta rule during which Gravas’ film itself was also banned. Screened to mark the 100th anniversary of Yves Montand’s birth. Filmmakers Paul Greengrass and Aki Kaurismäki listed the film in their top 10 films of all time. Cast includes Jean-Louis Trintignant, Yves Montand, Irene Papas and Jacques Perrin. (Subtitles) Algeria/France 1969 Costa-Gavras 127m

The Big Hit Un Triomphe

Wed 17 Nov 19:45

Thu 18 Nov 13:30

Etienne, an often-out-of-work but endearing actor, runs a theatre workshop in a prison, where he brings together an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s classic ‘Waiting for Godot’. When he is allowed to take the colourful band of convicts on a tour outside of prison, Etienne finally has the chance to thrive. Each date is a new success, and a unique relationship grows between this ad hoc group of actors and their director. But soon comes the final performance in Paris. Will their last night together be the biggest hit of them all? An uplifting comedy inspired by true events. “Boulevard comedy that bowls along merrily with a star turn by Kad Merad.” - Eye for Film. Cast Kad Merad, Marina Hands and Laurent Stocker. (Subtitles) France 2020 Emmanuel Courcol 106m 24


Dvorak’s Rusalka Teatro Real Madrid 2020

Sun 14 Nov 13:15 Tickets £17.50 (Friends/Students £15.00) The libretto of the most well known opera by Dvořak, which premiered in Prague in 1901, is inspired by the Czech version of the Central European folktale, one we also know as ‘Undine’ (1811) by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué or ‘The Little Mermaid’ (1837) by Hans Christian Andersen.

The original story is perfectly translated into a musical score full of colour and magic where it is possible to perceive a Wagnerian influence, especially in the river currents of ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’. The composer did not renounce his Bohemian roots for he left a mark on a large part of his creations as an artist committed to Czech music and culture. As of the last decades of the 20th century, its presence on the world stage has consolidated and today ‘Rusalka’ is one of the twenty most performed operas; surprisingly it has never been performed since the re-inauguration of the Teatro Real. Ivor Bolton (Conductor); Asmik Grigorian (Soprano): Rusalka. Sung in Czech with English subtitles. Recorded 25 Nov 2020. 180m approx. including interval Studio Talk

Hold the Front Page! Fri 12 Nov 18:00 (Studio) Tickets £6.50 (Friends/Under 25’s - £5) Former journalist Sandy Guthrie of the Cinema Education Team looks back at the portrayal of journalists in the cinema in this illustrated talk, featuring clips from a range of films from the silent era to the present. When a character appears in a film with a press pass jammed in his hatband, a notebook in his hand, or a microphone poised to be pushed into someone’s face for a quote, it can mean one of several things. Journalists in films can be crusaders or evil manipulators, or just a useful way of explaining the plot to the audience. This illustrated talk will examine different screen newspaper and magazine writers, as well as broadcasters, throughout the history of cinema, looking at fictional hacks and true-life investigative newsmen and women, and the way they have been portrayed. Films are riddled with them, some comic and some dramatic, some dynamic and some sinister. The writers behind some of these characters will be under the spotlight too. Some of the great journalist characters were created by writers and directors who had first-hand experience of the press from the inside as former journalists. 120m 01243 786650
