IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE FROM 03-16 DEC
23 OPEN ADMISSION/21 DEC SILVER SCREEN
Director: Tom McGrath. Voices: Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, David Cross, Ben Stiller. USA 2010. 96 mins.
Director: Frank Capra. Starring: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers. USA 1946. 129 mins.
It’s not easy being mean. Just ask Megamind (Ferrell). After graduating from the Prison for the Criminally Gifted with a thirst for destruction and a lowly sidekick, aptly named Minion (Cross), in tow, Megamind embraces his inner supervillain to face-off against his archrival, chiseled man-of-the-people, Metro Man (Pitt). Using a news reporter named Roxanne Ritchi (Fey, DATE NIGHT) as bait, Megamind lures his nemesis into the city observatory, where he hopes to thwart Metro Man once and for all. Without a hero to fight, however, how will Megamind cope with living a purposeless existence? Following up from his success with the MADAGASCAR series, director McGrath takes the animated superhero comedy into a new dimension.
One of the most popular and enduring films ever made; Frank Capra’s IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE is a gloriously sentimental testament to homely small-town moral values. Masterfully crafted, the film opens with angels discussing George Bailey (James Stewart), a man so beset with problems that he contemplates a Christmas-time suicide. As George prepares to jump from a bridge his guardian angel Clarence Oddbody intervenes and shows him how badly Bedford Falls would have turned out without his good deeds. Filled with a renewed joy of life George returns to his family for Christmas. James Stewart gives one of his finest, most affecting performances and the film looks better than ever in its new restoration.

Director: Joseph Kosinski. Starring: Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, Garrett Hedlund, Beau Garrett. USA 2010. tbc mins.

Lewis’ beloved children’s series, VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER sees Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to the magical world of Narnia where they embark on the royal ship with Prince Caspian and voyage to the end of the world. Acclaimed British filmmaker Apted (AMAZING GRACE) takes the story to enchanting new worlds, making VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER the perfect family adventure this Christmas.
A CHRISTMAS TALE (FILM CLUB) (15)
16 DEC ONLY
Director: Arnaud Desplechin. Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Devos, Chiara Mastroianni. FRANCE 2008. 152 mins. French with English subtitles A Christmas Tale is much more than a good ensemble piece by an outstanding cast. In this midwinter night’s dream, unrequited love collides with bitter resentment, nostalgic longing crosses paths with abject fear, and hatred gives way to vivacious affection. Scala Film Club is general admission and open to all. Standard ticket prices apply.
FROM 17-30 DEC
Back in 1982 TRON became an overnight cult classic; its place in pop culture was instantly cemented. Almost 20 years on, the game has changed. As the year’s most anticipated sci-fi action movie, TRON: LEGACY is bigger, faster, in 3D and visually spectacular. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) plugs himself into the ENCOM mainframe in a bid to find his missing father (Jeff Bridges). Soundtrack and score by French techno pioneers ‘Daft Punk’.With the score syncronised with the light cycles frequency!
GULLIVER'S TRAVELS (CERT TBC)

Director: Rob Letterman. Starring: Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Jason Segal, Billy Connolly, Catherine Tate. USA 2010. Cert tbc mins. In this modern-day update of Jonathan Swift’s cherished 18thcentury novel, Jack Black plays the eponymous travel writer Lemuel Gulliver, who washes up on a tropical island inhabited by diminutive locals. With SHARK TALE and MONSTERS VS. ALIENS to his name, director Rob Letterman’s live-action comedy promises to be a real family favourite this winter.
127 HOURS (15)
FROM 31 DEC-06 JAN
FROM 07-20 JAN
Director: Steve Antin. Starring: Cher, Christina Aguilera, Eric Dane. USA 2010. Cert tbc mins.
Director: Danny Boyle. Starring: James Franco, Kate Mara, Amber Tamblyn, Sean Bott, Clémence Poésy USA/UK 2010. 94 mins.
Ali is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress. Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, although not before a charismatic entrepreneur arrives with an enticing proposal.
127 HOURS tells the incredible true story of American adrenaline junkie Aron Ralston, who in May 2003 was forced to cut off his own arm after becoming trapped by a loose boulder in a deep crevice in canyon country, Utah. Danny Boyle’s (SLUMDOG MILLIOANIRE) film is at once sincere, faithful and unapologetically authentic in its visceral recreation of events. James Franco (MILK) gives a career-best turn as Ralston, capturing the desperation of the situation while tenderly conveying his intensifying existential crisis. This is a film with moments of great pain and anguish, but shot in Boyle’s trademark idiosyncratic style, it is also a triumphant, never-say-die morality tale with bags of energy and inspiration. Actor and director have both never been better.
THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST (18)
THE AMERICAN (15)
05 & 06 JAN ONLY
11 & 12 JAN
Director: Daniel Alfredson. Starring: Michael Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace, Lena Endre, Micke Spreitz, Anders Ahlbom, Jacob Ericksson. USA 2010. Cert tbc mins.
Director: Anton Corbijn. Starring: George Clooney, Violante Placido, Thekla Reuten, Paolo Bonacelli, Filippo Timi. USA 2010. 105 mins. English and Italian with English subtitles.
Lisbeth is recovering in a hospital and awaiting trial for three murders when she is released. Mikael must prove her innocence, but Lisbeth must be willing to share the details of her sordid experiences with the court.
Stunningly composed, oozing atmosphere and evoking the forensic cool of great European cinema, THE AMERICAN is an impressive second outing by Anton Corbijn (CONTROL). George Clooney, eschewing his usual charm for something more raw and affecting, plays Jack, an assassin hiding out in Italy and trying to piece his life back together.
LITTLE FOCKERS (CERT TBC)
FROM 07-13 JAN
Director: Paul Weitz. Starring: Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Teri Polo, Jessica Alba, Blythe Danner, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand. USA 2010. Cert tbc mins. The third instalment in the MEET THE PARENTS franchise, LITTLE FOCKERS is a hilarious family comedy that takes a lighthearted approach at the trials of parenthood and the concerns that come with growing old. Ben Stiller and Terri Polo reprise their roles as married couple Greg and Pam Focker, who are now proud parents of five-year-old twins Henry and Samantha. Once again it’s off to the in-laws’ as the Focker flock join Jack (De Niro) and Dina (Danner) for a holiday season reunion. As well as familiar faces from the first two films, Jessica Alba, Harvey Keitel and Laura Dern contribute to pun-laughs and cringingly funny situation-comedy with gusto.
