"This animated adventure is sweet and entertaining while educating audiences about Chinese culture and underlining the importance of family, friendship, and teamwork." - Common Sense Media
Synopsis: Abominable takes audiences on an epic 3,000-mile journey from the streets of Shanghai to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes. When a mischievous group of friends encounter a young Yeti, they embark upon an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.
When Downton Abbey wrapped up its six seasons on TV, it gave everyone a happy ending. What will you you think about the return of your favourite aristocrats?
"Gentle drama for people who already know they like it, this is a nostalgic and rosy depiction of an England" - Empire
Synopsis: The continuing saga of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them in the English countryside in the early 20th century.
Joker stars Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role (and our tip to win Best Actor), alongside Robert De Niro, and is directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips. This is a powerful & compelling film and in our opinion, deserved winner of Venice's Golden Lion.
"Bold, devastating and utterly beautiful." -Empire
"Joker is raw, unsettling, and experimental, anchored by an absolutely mesmerizing central performance" Zaki Hasan
SYNOPSIS: JOKER centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.
Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, this 67 minute play is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.
Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to a cinema near you.

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time.. in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
"It’s shocking, gripping, dazzlingly shot in the celluloid-primary colours of sky blue and sunset gold: colours with the warmth that Mama Cass sang about. The Los Angeles of 1969 is recovered with all Tarantino’s habitual intensity and delirious, hysterical connoisseurship of pop culture detail.... It’s entirely outrageous, disorientating, irresponsible, and also brilliant."

Ride Like A Girl is the incredible true story of Michelle Payne and deserves to be celebrated on the big screen.

The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy. She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream.

To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken.
