Sat 27th May
US comedian Jordan Peele’s (Key & Peele) wildly acclaimed solo directorial debut is a superb achievement. Part horror comedy, part smart social satire, it illuminatingly exploits the intimate horror of racial tensions by adding actual horror to the mix, as African-American Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) goes with his white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) to visit her parents and a series of increasingly disturbing events unfold.

Sat 27th, Mon 29th & Thurs 1st June
The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barratt stars in the cultish, off-the-wall Mindhorn, recalling classic comedy creations from Alan Partridge to David Brent. Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (star of 1980s detective show Mindhorn) must return to the Isle of Man, site of his former glories when a deranged criminal demands his presence. A loving send-up of British detective shows with terrific support from Steve Coogan and Andrea Riseborough.

Sun 28th May & Thurs 1st June (Thurs Elevenses)
David Tennant gives a masterful, mercurial performance in Robert Mullan’s (Letters to Sofija, Gitel) absorbing portrayal of radical psychiatrist and writer R. D. Laing, who became a ‘60s counterculture hero for his revolutionary ‘anti-psychiatry’ experiments. With excellent support from Elisabeth Moss, Gabriel Byrne and Michael Gambon, the film mirrors Laing’s departure from convention, exploring scenes from a life in freewheeling fashion.

Thurs 13th April and Mon 29th, Tues 30th May

Emma Watson (Harry Potter series) is brilliantly cast as Belle in Bill Condon’s gorgeous, sweeping live action remake of Disney’s classic. A young prince (Dan Stevens), imprisoned in the form of a terrifying beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when Belle arrives in his enchanted castle… An all star cast includes Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson.

Tues 30th May
Jack Nicholson gives an unforgettable performance in Miloš Forman’s searing, multi-Oscar winning tragicomic 1975 adaptation of Ken Kesey’s novel, often hailed one of the best films ever made. He plays recidivist criminal Randle McMurphy, who mimics mental illness to get himself moved from prison to psychiatric hospital – but hasn’t bargained on the rigid structure imposed by Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher).
