T2: Trainspotting (Cert TBC)
Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words (15)
First there was an opportunity… then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home, and they are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction, and mortal danger…
Frank Zappa – self-taught composer, musician, bandleader, producer and independent thinker – first transcribed his avant-garde compositions onto paper at fourteen. He began to write lyrics in his early twenties. And upon the 1966 release of his debut album, Freak Out! (with the Mothers of Invention), he swiftly became the most quotable voice of dissent in popular music. A subtle, skillful montage constructed solely from historic footage, Eat That Question is an energetic celebration of this outspoken maestro.
Hacksaw Ridge (12A)
Tom Hanks stars as a modern American hero in this riveting true life drama. On 15 January 2009, Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger became a national hero when the world witnessed him pilot his disabled plane onto the waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being championed for his bravery and skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy both his reputation and his career.
Mel Gibson’s first film as director since 2006, Hacksaw Ridge is a gripping and moving drama based on the story of Desmond Doss, who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, single-handedly evacuated casualties from behind enemy lines, saving 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. Doss was the first conscientious objector to earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.
The Dolly Parton Story
SAT 21 & SUN 22 JANUARY, 7.30pm & 2pm
This Country and Western tribute act is paying homage to Dolly Parton and all the fantastic music she has written and performed over the years.
No need to read music, come along & enjoy a fun evening of song with a chat and cup of tea afterwards.

NO MAN'S LAND
SUNDAY 5 FEBRUARY - Mareel £12/£10 Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s No Man's Land, filmed live for cinemas at Wyndham’s Theatre, London. One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the appearance of two sinister younger men. Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don’t miss this glorious revival of Pinter’s comic classic.
The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive filmed Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias.
> Valentine's Films
Fifty Shades Darker (Cert TBC)
Romeo + Juliet (12A)
Daunted by his singular tastes and dark secrets, Anastasia has broken off her relationship with handsome, troubled entrepreneur Christian Grey to pursue a new career in a Seattle publishing house. But her desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sexual affair, and Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her.
Director Baz Luhrmann transfers Verona, Italy to Verona Beach, Florida, in this iconoclastic, sexy rendering of the bard's classic tale of love and tragedy. Here the Montagues and Capulets act like modern gangs with vendettas and blood feuds, and the swords have become guns, but the language remains the same and the tragedy of the star-crossed lovers Juliet (Claire Danes) and Romeo (Leonardo DiCaprio) is as poignant as ever.

The Great Wall (12A)
Three schoolgirls are kidnapped and locked in a windowless room by a stalker named Kevin. The captor’s appointments with his psychiatrist reveal that he has dissociative identity disorder – what used to be called multiple personality disorder – and is hosting 23 distinct personalities, from a mischievous nine-year-old boy to a flamboyant fashion designer. But there's also a 24th personality, ominously referred to The Beast, battling to gain control...
When a mercenary warrior is imprisoned within the Great Wall of China, he discovers the mystery behind one of the greatest wonders of the world. As wave after wave of marauding creatures besiege the massive structure, his quest for fortune turns into a journey toward heroism, as he joins a huge army of elite warriors to confront the seemingly unstoppable force.

Batman is the toast of Gotham City, but each night he returns to the Batcave alone. His faithful manservant Alfred suggests that the crime-fighter's greatest fear is of being part of a family once more, and that the solution is to raise the orphan he adopted, training him to become his superhero sidekick. But the over-excited boy wonder proves quite a handful, and Batman’s greatest foe is about to rear his cackling head.

Manchester by the Sea (15)
The assassination of John F Kennedy in 1963 was one of those moments that defined a generation. That this handsome, charismatic leader with a beautiful wife and two young children could have his life ended so brutally defied comprehension. With Jackie, Pablo LarraĂn makes a brave choice by retelling this story solely through the eyes of Jacqueline Kennedy, casting Natalie Portman in a lead performance that is deeply intelligent and carefully measured.
Rude, withdrawn and temperamental, Boston handyman Lee Chandler is clearly a troubled man. When he receives news of the sudden death of his beloved brother, Lee sets off for his Massachusetts home town of Manchester-by-the Sea. Here he learns that he has become guardian of his 16-year-old nephew, and is forced to confront his troubled past and the tragic events that forced him to leave.
Hidden Figures (PG)
20th Century Women (15)
Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of three brilliant African-American women working at NASA in the early 1960s, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. Their stunning achievement restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and crossed gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
During the summer of 1979, a Santa Barbara single mother and boarding house landlady decides the best way she can parent her teenage son is to enlist her young tenants â€“ a quirky punk photographer, a mellow handyman and her son's shrewd best friend â€“ to serve as role models in a changing world. Annette Bening leads a stellar cast in this beautifully observed charmer.

The Birth of a Nation (15) Set against the antebellum South, this powerful drama follows Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner accepts an offer to use Nat's preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hope of leading his people to freedom.
Toni Erdmann (15) At last year’s Cannes Film Festival, Toni Erdmann took everyone by surprise and became the unexpected hit of the festival, with sold out screenings and queues around the block. The story follows an ambitious young businesswoman and her relationship with her eccentric, practical joke loving father. Saying much more would be a spoiler: it’s full of surprises, very warm and touching and frequently hilarious.
Paterson (15) Every day is much the same for bus driver and secret poet Paterson. Once his shift has finished, he goes home and has dinner with his wife Laura, before taking their dog down to the local bar and enjoying one beer. Jim Jarmusch’s charming and quietly profound character study astutely observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
Christine (15) Christine, always the smartest person in the room at her local Florida news station, feels like she is destined for bigger things, but is constantly butting heads with her boss, who pushes for juicier stories that will drive up ratings. As Christine’s mental state declines, and she is increasingly plagued by self-doubt and feelings of unrequited love for a colleague, events take a dark and shocking turn.
My Feral Heart (12A) Luke, an independent young man with Down’s syndrome, is grieving the loss of his elderly mother when he is forced to move into a care home. Initially despondent about his new situation, his spirits are raised when he finds a way to sneak out and explore the local countryside. And when he meets a girl in need of his help, his desire to connect and protect another person gives him a new lease of life.
