Matt Damon and Christian Bale drive the historic racing battle between Ford and Ferrari, a war of fiercely powerful cars and equally fierce egos.

Despite dominating the market for ordinary cars, Ford struggled in the world of endurance racing, facing humiliation from the much smaller but more glamorous Ferrari. Unable to buy them out, it instead recruited a brilliant but unstable creative team to beat them at their own game. This was spearheaded by Carroll Shelby (Damon), a racer forced from the track by poor health and channelling his energy into creative work, and Ken Miles (Bale), a British driver and former tank-commander with an uncanny instinct for cars, and no patience with suits.

With just 90 days to build an unbeatable car for the 24-hour race in Le Mans, the team faced fierce opposition from abroad, its company, and within. Helmed by action and biopic master James Mangold and co-written by feted playwright Jez Butterworth, the film excels in depicting both the riveting spectacle of motorsports and the internal dynamics of the minds behind it. Though a prestigious biopic and a classic underdog sports story, it transcends cliché.


We are thrilled to welcome Robin Donovan, local St Albans resident to introduce our screening on Friday 13th at 7.30pm.

Robin is one of only a few Brit's to have competed in this legendary race an incredible 14 times and will share his experience and knowledge about all things 'Le Mans'.

It’s that time of year again! The Odyssey brings our annual screening of the much beloved Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Li… wait no… It’s Die Hard!

Heavily armed terrorists have seized the Nakatomi tower building in LA, taken hostages and declared war but they haven’t counted on one thing, an off-duty cop who has been caught in the building. He’s alone, he’s tired and he’s the only chance anyone has.

Bruce Willis plays New York City detective John McClane, who has arrived in LA to spend the holiday with his estranged wife. But as her office Christmas party is overrun with terrorists and hostages are taken, he slips away unnoticed. Armed with only his wits and a service revolver, he wages a one man war and proves that he is harder to kill than they expected. Directed by John McTiernan and featuring a career defining performance by the late, great Alan Rickman as the terrorist Hans Gruber.

Die Hard is one of the greatest action films ever made and the ideal Christmas adventure to stuff your stocking with.

Merry Christmas, and a Yippee-Ki-Yay…

There’s good reason that Elf tops so many people’s favourite Christmas film lists. The Will Ferrell-starring caper is still a hoot, 16 years later.

Ferrell is Buddy, a human who has been raised as an elf in Santa’s Grotto. Being so enormous next to his elven colleagues, he struggles to keep up with the toy-making pace, and eventually decides to leave the North Pole, and seek out his real family.

Things get hairy when he discovers his biological father in New York, a city that spectacularly fails at robbing Buddy of his childlike innocence. He falls for toy-store employee Jovie (Zooey Deschanel), a staunch lover of elf culture.

Transitioning to Big Apple life aside, our hero must also solve a seasonal crisis, when Santa is unable to deliver presents due to a huge lack of the Christmas cheer that he needs to power his sleigh.

Get down to The Odyssey for this yuletide remedy and discover your inner elf.

Now 65 years old, Irving Berlin's perennially amiable festive musical returns to The Odyssey this December.

After one saves the life of the other in the last days of WWII, army friends Bob (Bing Crosby) and Phil (Danny Kaye) combine their talents to become famous musical performers, before eventually flagging from demand and repetition.

Before long, two meetings en-route to a wintry inn in Vermont revive their interest: first with the Haynes Sisters, two musically talented siblings (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen), and then a reunion with their beloved former general (Dean Jagger); now the inn's owner, who is losing business due to a lack of snow.

Eager to save their old overseer and each becoming further entangled with the Haynes Sisters, the pair pool their theatrical resources to put on a musical spectacular at the inn, hoping to reunite the general with his other faithful subordinates and save his business.

The film's sentimental and undemanding story does not detract from Berlin's excellent musical numbers (including the famous title song) and the vivid Technicolor cinematography.

White Christmas provides warmth and cosiness in no small measure.

This Christmas, we have a special surprise package for you! It’s cute and friendly, so long as you make sure you keep it away from bright lights, water … and whatever you do, don’t feed it after midnight!

Inventor Randall Peltzer is searching for a Christmas present for his teenage son Billy and he finally finds what he’s looking for in an old curiosity shop in Chinatown. It’s a new pet Mogwai named Gizmo. Billy is told the rules about looking after his new companion, but rules are unfortunately made to be broken.

Before long Kingston Falls is overrun by a horde of mischievous, malevolent Gremlins bringing their own brand of festive mayhem to the quiet sleepy town and only Billy and Gizmo can stop them.

Directed by Joe Dante (The Howling, InnerSpace, The ‘Burbs) and written by Chris Columbus (The Goonies, Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone).

Gremlins is the perfect alternative Christmas treat that’ll make you laugh as often as you’ll be hiding behind the cushions.

Film run time: 1h 42 mins


Beautiful, feral, confounding, hallucinatory, unsettling, enticing – all these and more, Monos, from director Alejandro Landes, proves to be a film that deftly eludes categorisation.

High on a mountain in remote part of South America a prisoner of war is being guarded by a group of child soldiers. They play games, train, dance, flirt with each other and fight boredom as they await further instructions. However, they are mostly excited by the arrival of a cow called Shakira, which they are to care for and milk.

As a society operating without the influence of the outside world, the children of Monos have started to develop their own rituals and traditions, and divisions within the group are evident even before an attack forces the kids to flee into the jungle.

Influenced by Apocalypse Now but tonally somewhere between Aguirre, Wrath of God and Lord of The Flies, Monos manages to stand as its own unique beast. The title has a double meaning, referring both to the Spanish word for monkey and the Greek word for alone.

An immersive percussive score by Mica Levi (who also did the music for Under the Skin and Jackie) adds to the claustrophobia.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne have joined forces again, after their electrifying on-screen chemistry in the biopic, The Theory of Everything. While Redmayne previously took centre stage as Professor Stephen Hawking, The Aeronauts allows Felicity to shine at her absolute best as daredevil Pilot Amelia Wren.

They are joined by Himesh Patel (Yesterday) and Tom Courtenay (Doctor Zhivago, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner) in this breathless adventure story.

Inspired by real events, the film is based on an amalgam of the flights detailed in Richard Holmes' 2013 book Falling Upwards: How We Took to the Air.

In 1862 headstrong scientist James Glaisher and wealthy young widow Amelia Wren mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. As their perilous ascent reduces their chances of survival, the unlikely duo soon discover things about themselves — and each other — that help both of them find their place in the world.

Directed by Tom Harper, best known for his work on Wild Rose, Peaky Blinders and the TV mini-series War & Peace.

Christmas candy confection rarely comes sweeter than Richard Curtis’ festive chocolate box assortment, collectively known as Love Actually.

Love, as Andy Williams once sang, is a many splendored thing, and in the ten occasionally interlocking stories that make up this warm hug of a film we get to see many different forms of love, be it work place romances (Martin Freeman and Joanna Page), the love of a parent for their child (Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster), holiday romances (Colin Firth and Lucia Moniz) or merely old friendships (Bill Nighy and Gregor Fisher).

Set in a London so beautifully shot that it’s almost a character in its own right, Curtis’ directorial debut plays-out over the five-week run up to Christmas. However, like all the best desserts, a little bit of sharp is needed to balance out the sweet. So in between the warm and fuzzy moments there are some genuinely heart-breaking scenes too, which all just add to the richness of the concoction.

A modern-day Christmas staple.

Warning - no babies for 15 Cert.


Directed by Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Mr Holmes) this Hitchcockian tale of double-crossings and duplicity has more twists than a snake with an itch.

It is a well-known fact that people are never 100% honest about themselves in online dating profiles, be it a slightly more flattering photo from a few years ago, a bolstered resumé, or a feigned interest in physical activity. However, roguish old charmer Roy Courtnay (Ian Mckellen) has more to hide than most with his courtship of millionaire widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren).

“You bloody bet I’m going to take it all.” Confesses Roy to his partner in crime Vincent (Jim Carter, Downton Abbey) as they plan Roy’s attempt to worm his way into her affections. But all is not necessarily what it seems and perhaps Betty is not the only one being deceived.

Delightfully over the top, with more than a hint of the Patricia Highsmith, the two leads are clearly having the time of their lives sparking off each other in this delicious contemporary thriller that will leave you guessing until the last reel.

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.


Based on Carlo Goldoni’s classic 18th century play The Servant of Two Masters, Richard Bean has transformed this comedy into a delirious English carry-on set in Brighton in 1963. Chaotic scenes and dialogue will leave you helpless with hilarity, the cast enjoying themselves as much as the audience with a script full of wisecracks, sight gags, and fiendish moments of audience participation.


Presiding over the mayhem is Corden as Francis Henshall, a cheeky young lad who finds himself at the mercy of two bosses. Conversing with the audience as if huddled in the local pub, he stumbles clumsily about the stage while catching peanuts in his mouth and at one absurdly amusing bit turns on himself in an identity crisis.


This however, is far from a one-man show. Oliver Chris excels as a demented boarding school toff, while Jemima Rooper is hugely engaging as the heroine - disguised as her nefarious twin brother. Daniel Rigby is superb as a self-aggrandising actor, while Suzie Toase brings a humorous warmth to the stage as Dolly, the woman who falls for Henshall’s curvesome charms.

This January we’ve decided to extend the holiday spirit a little further for this special film with a generous dash of George Michael’s greatest hits.


After being given a second chance at life, Kate (Emilia Clarke) finds herself stumbling through her mid-twenties, as a veteran couch-surfer whose habit of imposing on friends, until their patience runs out is - illustrated by a series of wincingly funny events. Kate has also a true gift of disappointing her unimpressed boss (Michelle Yeoh) at the Christmas shop where she works as the most unexcited and cynical elf ever.

Her bad luck changes when she meets Tom (Henry Golding), the handsome, impossibly wholesome and overtly mysterious man she quickly finds herself falling for. With an impeccable cue for Kate’s imminent disasters, Tom swoops in and shows her an unexpected path with a little bit of “Faith”.

Written by Emma Thompson (who also plays Clarke’s mother in the film), directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and with a cast that is impossible to resist, Last Christmas is the perfect opportunity to grab a cup of mulled wine and get cosy with your loved ones this December.

Despite being less than 20 years old, Ron Howard and Jim Carrey’s take on Dr Seuss’s beloved story has already become a holiday favourite. As the cheerfully inane Whos of Whoville scramble to outdo each other in celebrating Christmas, the brilliantly sour Grinch (Carrey) sulks in his mountain-cave lair, driven well past distraction by the light and noise and with only his hapless dog Max for company.

Pushed to the breaking point after years of exile and humiliation, he vows to pillage Christmas from the town entirely, hijacking Santa’s role and stealing every trace of the celebration. At the same time, however, guileless six-year-old Cindy Lou Who learns the Grinch’s true nature and sets out to show him and Whoville the real value of the holiday. Faithfully replicating both the colourful curving visuals and warm seasonal sentiment of the original story, the film stands out through its take on the title character, an unforgettable mix of uncanny monster makeup and Carrey’s mercurial comic energy. Reportedly, combining the two was such an agonising process that Carrey relied on the soothing tones of the Bee Gees to help him through the filming process.

While it might not be the image Dickens originally had for his novel A Christmas Carol, Jim Henson’s lovable Muppets retelling of the classic tale is one of the most recognised and adored.

Michael Caine plays Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser who couldn’t care less about Christmas and the joy the season brings. As he returns home on Christmas Eve filled with hate and anger, he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future and what he has done, and what he will do is laid out in front of him.

Somehow Michael Caine manages to play Scrooge incredibly straight faced and glum surrounded by everyone’s favourite fuzzy felt puppets, in this funny, heart-warming and musical adaption directed by Jim Henson’s son Brian Henson.

Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and all your favourite Muppets in this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens' classic tale.

Come and see the most beloved Christmas film of all time at The Odyssey.

As the film begins on a cold and snowy Christmas Eve the camera drifts from one household to another as the townsfolk of the small town of Bedford Falls are saying their evening prayers. And almost in unison they pray for one thing: to please keep George Bailey safe. Not that they could know it, but far above, their prayers are being heard.

So begins the story of It’s A Wonderful Life. The tale of an angel called Clarence (Henry Travers) who is sent to save the life of a man who thinks he has run out of options. Clarence’s job will be to show George (James Stewart) that his life had meaning and value even if it wasn’t filled with the successes that George had hoped for.

Frank Capra’s film, above all else, is about decency. That doing the best for others can be its own reward. And what could be a better message for Christmas than that?

The immortal classic, A Christmas Carol is given a modern makeover in this off-beat Christmas classic from director Richard Donner (The Goonies, Superman).

Bill Murray plays Frank Cross, the ruthless, callous president of the IBC television network who is planning a big budget live retelling of the classic tale of “Scrooge”. But on Christmas Eve, he is thrown into a supernatural time warp as he is visited by a gruff, cigar-chomping Ghost of Christmas Past, an angelic but hilariously violent Ghost of Christmas Present and finally the towering, hooded Ghost of Christmas Future to scare the Dickens out of him in an attempt to make him change his ways.

Co-starring Karen Allen, David Johansen, Bobcat Goldthwait, Robert Mitchum, a scene stealing Carol Kane and a host of celebrity camoes.

Scrooged is a hilarious supernatural comedy which boasts an amazing soundtrack by Danny Elfman and will be sure to warm the hearts of even the coldest Christmas cynic.

Three years after the events of the first film, Elsa starts to hear a strange sound from the north calling her.

Together with her sister Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven, they embark on a new journey beyond their homeland of Arendelle in order to discover the origin of Elsa's magical powers and save their kingdom.

Veteran voice cast Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad reprise their greatly loved roles from 2013’s Frozen, with new recruits including Sterling K. Brown, Evan Rachel Wood and Rachel Matthews.

Those who loved the original will be delighted to hear the Academy Award-winning team Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee are back at the director’s helm. Alongside them are Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez back with more catchy songs for you to belt out.

It’s grown into a more emotionally mature story, continuing everything you love about the first movie and upping the ante while maintaining the intimacy of the original. Gorgeous animation, wonderful new characters and (FINALLY) a Kristoff song!

Gene Kelly’s classic musical, Singin’ in the Rain continues to mesmerise audiences. Follow us on this whimsical journey into the dazzling spectacle of Hollywood’s Golden Age, almost 70 years since its release.

Centring on a trio of actors Don, Kathy and Cosmo (Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor) attempting to save a disastrous period drama by turning it into a musical, whilst also demonstrating to us the changeover from silent pictures to talkies which occurred in the 1920s. Of course it's about romance - as most musicals are! - but it's also about the film industry going through its bumpy transition.

The film still pulses with life; in a movie about making movies, you can really sense the joy they had making it.

How better to describe it than with Gene Kelly’s famous reply on how he was going to approach the song and dance centrepiece of Singin’ In The Rain: “It’s going to be raining and I’m going to be singing. I’m going to have a glorious feeling and I’m going to be happy again.”

Before the arrival of its Spielberg-directed successor next year, revisit the first, Oscar-winning film of the game-changing 60s musical.

Shifting the timeless tragedy of Romeo and Juliet to the racially tense neighbourhoods of Manhattan, the story follows star-crossed lovers Tony (Richard Beymer), valued member of the white American Jet gang, and Maria (Natalie Wood), connected by blood to the Puerto-Rican Shark gang. Both long to escape their violent, suffocating surroundings together, but this is made harder by the increasingly vicious power-struggles between their families, who in turn face the aggression of the police.

Already a huge success on Broadway, the film shows how the musical electrified its form in every department: Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim combine a classic love story with a witty, still-modern treatment of social issues, animated by Leonard Bernstein’s thrillingly inventive score. Most amazingly, Jerome Robbins transferred his own choreography to the actual streets of New York, creating a style that seamlessly fused raw urban aggression with artful balletic precision. The result is a film musical unlike any other, charged with palpable danger and energy offset by a tender and melodious romance.

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci make up the Hollywood holy trinity in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of WWII veteran Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.

Brilliantly scripted by Steven Zaillian, this is a faithful adaptation of an amazing book, originally published as I Heard You Paint Houses, by Charles Brandt - based on five years of conversations with the real Frank Sheeran, towards the end of his life, in which he spoke about his involvement in decades of organised crime, both with the Mafia and with the Teamsters union, led by Jimmy Hoffa (played by a relentlessly captivating Al Pacino).

In this, Scorsese’s first ever collaboration with Al Pacino, the film has been heralded as a late-career masterpiece. Over the course of three-and-a-half hours, it creates a rich, troubling, transfixing tableau of America at a time when the Mafia’s influence reached high and low. At 76, Scorsese proves he’s still got enough in the tank for one last love letter to mob life.

Part of the ‘A Cinematic Odyssey: Postcards from Europe’ strand.

Over half a century after its initial release, Jacques Demy’s transcendentally gorgeous musical remains timeless.

In a French port town during the late 50s, umbrella salesgirl Geneviève (Catherine Deneuve) and auto-mechanic Guy (Nino Castelnuovo) are deeply in love, and inseparable. Military service for Guy and struggling business for Geneviève test this, and each one vows to wait for the other - but life has many ways of interfering.

On paper, the story may seem insubstantial, but Demy and composer Michel Legrand quite literally make it sing: every word of the film is sung without the least hint of awkwardness, giving even the most mundane situation a lyrical magic. At the same time, the film does not neglect realism, showing an unusually great emotional maturity in its plot and characters and grounding every song in a recognisably human world. Likewise, the photography captures tangible urban locations in a vividly colourful but not prettified light. Demy’s film does not deny the uplifting fantasy of the movie musical or the crushing reality of real life, but blends both together in a captivating way, creating a masterpiece unlike any other.

The film will be introduced by Dr Paul Sutton, who will stay for the end of the film for a post- screening discussion in the auditorium.

So make sure you flock to The Odyssey for the latest adventure on Mossy Bottom Farm with Shaun & his friends, as they attempt to avoid Farmageddon.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream builds on the explosive success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar in 2018.

A feuding forest King and Queen chance upon four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors rehearsing a play. As a quarrel between them intensifies, the enchanted royal couple meddle with mortals, administering their magic with dark but hilarious consequences. The Bridge Theatre transforms into a hazy delusion of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlit revellers, enveloped by the meandering audience pursuing the amusements on foot.

The abundance of creativity exhibited in the fabrication of the show uses music, dance and stagecraft to create a vision of transgressive passion, realised with technical wizardry.  Bunny Christie’s set boasts airborne beds and soaring silk swings, while Arlene Phillips and Lennin Nelson-McClure create eye-catching gymnastics and ear-nibbling, high-wire antics as Movement Director and Circus Captain.

This irreverent interpretation has the atmosphere of a party, creating a sense of mischief that spreads like a giant smile. Poking fun at the vogue for immersive theatre, the genre’s potential for delirious disarray is embraced to provoke a playful charm - perfect for the festive season!

The Odyssey ends the year with Ken Russell and The Who’s visionary rock fantasia.

Based on their landmark album, the story follows a child traumatised by seeing the death of his father and who completely retreats inside himself, shutting down all sense of the outside world. After years of neglect, he eventually finds an outlet in pinball, showing an uncanny brilliance for it and becoming a national celebrity. After clashing with his mother, Tommy eventually awakens to an enlightened status, and vows to convert the world to his obscure beliefs. Never stopping to question the bizarre story, Russell and The Who electrify every moment of it with a pulsating, evocative soundtrack, and overlay it with magnetically surreal imagery. Despite largely being filmed in Portsmouth, there is no trace of British realism or restraint: highlights include a television erupting baked beans and a neon-lit pinball battle with Elton John in giant boots.

On its original release, a special sound system was devised to make it even more powerful, but the film is so relentlessly rousing in every aspect that it hardly requires it.

The classic, old dark house whodunit is given a modern upgrade in Rian Johnson’s wickedly fun murder mystery.


Crime novelist Harlan Thrombey has gathered a number of his close relatives to the family estate on his 85th birthday, unfortunately he is found dead after delivering some potentially bad news and every one of these so-called “self-made over achievers” is a suspect.


Can the gentleman sleuth Benoit Blanc solve the case? Combining classic Agatha Christie stylings with delicious black humour, Knives Out features a tightly woven script and stand-out performances from an all-star cast, including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ana de Armas, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer and the long overdue return of Don Johnson (who is enjoying a career renaissance at the moment with his role in HBO’s Watchmen).


Budding detectives will have the time of their lives negotiating the labyrinth of clues and red herrings, exploring the “real-life Cluedo board” setting and battling their way through the blackly comic social satire of a family at war with itself to uncover the mystery.

So dust off your magnifying glass and don’t lose the plot. This one’s to die for!

Warning - no babies for 15 Cert.


A captivating intimate portrayal of a couple’s navigation through divorce. Critics have called it 'thought provoking' and 'realistic', an indie with all the rom-com energy.


Nicole, played by Scarlett Johannsson, and Charlie, played by Adam Driver, are a married couple that work together and are regarded by their peers as the perfect power couple. So how did their relationship turn sour?

In this film, Johannsson and Driver are bastions of authentic acting as they engage in an agonising cross-country separation which begs the question: Can a divorce really be amicable? Nicole and Charlie soon learn that, once lawyers are involved, pure intentions transform into a 'win at all costs' mentality where the repercussions are felt by their eight year old son Henry, who is at the heart of this conflict.

Directed by Noah Baumbach (who is married to actor/director Greta Gerwig – see Little Women) the film can be seen as an unofficial counter narrative to his previous film ‘The Squid and The Whale’, which focused on the child’s perspective of separation and trauma. Marriage Story, however challenges the notion of ‘conscious uncoupling’ whilst remaining a story of love, in its later stages.

The dream team of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton & James Cameron reunite with Tim-Deadpool-Miller at the helm for the latest instalment of the explosive Terminator series.


The year is 2022 and Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a quiet life in Mexico City when a new and improved Rev-9 Terminator is sent back through time to hunt her down and kill her. The only way Dani can survive is to join forces with Sarah Connor and Grace (Mackenzie Davis) a technologically enhanced super soldier who has been assigned to protect her. As they battle this new threat from the future, the three warriors track down their only hope for salvation, the original T-800 Terminator… after all, he said he’d be back.


Tim Miller uses all the tropes he honed making Deadpool, to bring the non-stop action to life as the shape-shifting and seemingly invincible Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) relentlessly hunts down the three heroes in his mission to alter the future.

So strap yourselves in for writer James Cameron’s true follow-up to Terminator 2 and say ‘Hasta La Vista’ to 2019 in explosive Arnie style.

Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson anchor a small but universal story of enduring companionship.


Years after having lost their daughter, Tom (Neeson) and Joan (Manville) live quietly but comfortably together in Belfast, content with each other’s company and settled into shared routines. This is threatened when Joan discovers a small lump which turns out to be cancerous, rendering the future uncertain and forcing them to examine the present.


Even in the best-case scenario, the pair are left in very uncomfortable positions, and require all of each other’s strength to move on. Despite superficial soap opera resemblances in its small scale and mundane setting, the film gains a great emotional power by avoiding melodrama and obvious effects, instead quietly stepping back to observe a simple, deep vein of feeling. This is brought life by empathetic writing and performances, which similarly eschew grandstanding: neither Neeson nor Manville are afraid to look like typical, vulnerable people, and create a relationship with a nuanced history and deep affection.


By its very refusal to seem epic or extraordinary, the film gains a pervasive emotional richness.

Part of the ‘A Cinematic Odyssey: Postcards from Europe’ strand.

Federico Fellini’s epic satire on the high life in post-war Rome celebrates its 60th birthday.


Marcello (Mastroianni), a smooth, ambitious journalist with literary aspirations, drifts through a series of late nights and early mornings, absorbing the immortal city’s most decadent, trashy spectacles. Through him, Fellini charts a map of brilliant, vapid glamour: Reporting on a frenzied media circus for a fake miracle, following an ethereal escaped starlet (Anita Ekberg) into the Trevi Fountain, sitting in on a portentous literary salon and orchestrating a desperate orgy are only a few of their varied activities.

Constantly soaking in hollow highs and never sustaining real intimacy, Marcello vaguely longs for something finer in a world where nothing is sacred, and beauty is always at a distance. Long enshrined as a classic, Fellini’s vision remains absorbing, presciently skewing a vulgar, self-indulgent modern culture while luxuriating in its delights. Even as it captures the fall of the great antiquities and the spiritual bankruptcy of modern city life, its grand structure and awesome imagery find a new, lasting beauty, one that endures 60 years on.


*The film will be introduced by Dr Paul Sutton, who will stay for the end of the film for a post- screening discussion in the auditorium.

Mia Wasikowska wreaks vengeance on a skewed, sexist medieval culture in Mirrah Foulkes’ carnivalesque black comedy.


As wife and performing partner to the vain, trashy puppeteer Punch (Damon Herriman), Judy (Wasikowska) is reduced to a punching bag on and off-stage, stymied as an artist by her town’s insecure superstitions and stressed as a mother by her husband’s feckless indulgences. Before long, life imitates art when Punch’s ego gets the better of him, and Judy is given up for dead by the town -but Judy finds that she is not the only outcast in town, and plots revenge on both her odious husband and the blinkered, cowardly community that supports him.


Combining a richly textured Elizabethan-pantomime atmosphere with an incisive, modern wit, the film fearlessly bends and breaks fictional tropes, confronting a whole history and culture of exclusion and disadvantage with gleefully destructive invention. Empathetic performances and an observant script ground the riotous action, tempering the often surreal, violent tone with weight and humanity. Foulkes creates an anarchic antique fantasy, tackling timely issues with both insight and humour.

The saga ends… Episode IX brings to a close the legendary Skywalker story. But with a title that is such an open-ended question, how will things conclude for Rey, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, and the rest of the galaxy?


The trailers have offered no answers, instead ramping up the speculatory hype. Palpatine’s voice is heard in them — is he alive? A force ghost? How Carrie Fisher is due to posthumously appear leaves a huge question mark. And Princess Leia’s brother Luke appeared to become one with the force in The Last Jedi — will he play a role here? Billy Dee Williams also reprises the greatly loved Lando Calrissian — joining Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac.


Episode IX will be composer John Williams’ final Star Wars film, a man who has played such a huge part in the magic of this saga.


A year after the events of The Last Jedi, the remnants of The Resistance regroup to face the dark might of The First Order. Meanwhile, the millenia-old conflict between the Jedi and the Sith, now centring around Kylo Ren and Rey, reaches its explosive end.

Will Smith is back as “the world’s most awesome spy”, that is until he’s transformed into a pigeon by Tom Holland, voicing a teenage genius/uber-nerd. How are they to stop the evil tech-terrorist Killian now?


Indeed, the super-suave Will Smith stars as the even suaver Lance Sterling, a celebrity spy who protects the world from grave threats. That is until he becomes a stout-bodied bird. Tom Holland, meanwhile, is no stranger to an American accent after starring as Spiderman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Said American accent is lent to Walter Beckett, a socially anxious boy genius who graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at 15. Much of Sterling’s spy-success is thanks to Beckett’s gadget inventions, although his ‘biodynamic concealment’/pigeon incident throws a feathery spanner into the works.


The cast is rounded out by Rashida Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, and DJ Khaled.

Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, Captain Marvel) voices Killian, Lance Sterling’s arch enemy. He’s a powerful threat whose left arm is bionic and home to a vast array of lethal weaponry.

An animated caper that is sure to appeal to spies of any age.

Warning - no babies for 15 Cert.


An innocent school friendship between Timmy (Stephen Odubola) and Marco (Top Boy’s Michael Ward) is put to the test in an opposing postcode war between Deptford’s SE8 and Peckham’s SE15.


What might appear a stereotypical tale of London’s loss of life from youth violence, the film conveys a deeper message. Intersected with CCTV footage and iPhone documentary style clips, the film drew standing ovations from audiences at Peckham Plex Cinema, many of whom experience the content of this film as their reality.


Impressively his first feature, writer-director Andrew Onwubolu (AKA the south London MC Rapman who recently signed to Jay- Z’s label Roc Nation) has turned his YouTube web series ‘Shiro’s Story’ into the sixth best opening in British Cinema this year. Careful to reject any glamorisation of the subject, Rapman interjects the narrative acting as a commentator throughout “you are fighting for a post code you don’t even own.”


Depicted by the rising British talent in front and behind the camera, Blue Story asks the audience to understand how austerity and inequality motivate youth violence, whilst highlighting the heart-breaking trauma on the communities affected.

“Music has always been like a curse with me. It’s the first thing in my life. Go to bed thinking about it, and wake up thinking about it. That’s all I live for.”


So spoke the man who went on to redefine the world of jazz music as we know it.

Both preternaturally gifted and an absolute grafter who soaked up the lessons of his tutors with an insatiable hunger, Miles Davis was a visionary who took the cool austerity of ‘Bebop’ and tweaked it into the louche and sexy ‘Cool Jazz’ with which he is synonymous.


Director Stanley Nelson has created a documentary that will appeal to jazz aficionados and newcomers alike by focusing not just on the incredible talent of a restlessly visionary performer, but also on the demons that plagued a flawed man with all too human frailties. His addictive personality acting as both a driving force and often as his undoing.


An encyclopaedic archive of often never-before-seen footage and an enviable roster of contemporaries and musical devotees have been assembled to piece together the history of the great man, including Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Cobb and Carlos Santana.

Part of our ongoing series of live recordings of stage shows from the National Theatre, Hansard is a new play by first-time writer Simon Woods starring Olivier Award-winners Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), about a Conservative MP and his wife who have a secret that both connects and divides them.


Taking its name from the official written record of everything said in parliament, Hansard looks behind the spoken words at the reasons that underlie them, and the motivations that drive our actions.

Set in the year 1988, Robin Heskreth (Jennings) has just returned to his estate in the Cotswolds from parliament where the Tory government have just passed into law section 28, banning the promotion of homosexuality in schools. His wife (Duncan) has a stinking hangover and is less than thrilled to see him. Marital bickering soon begins to take on a frostier edge as long buried truths start to be uncovered.

With more than a passing nod to Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Woods’ play is both funny and acerbic as well as touching and revelatory, featuring an incredible double-hander from its charismatic leads.

Though Louisa May Alcott’s 151-year-old novel has seen many great adaptations already, Greta Gerwig’s new take never feels redundant or old-fashioned.


During the Civil War in New England, four sisters face adolescence, poverty, and fatherly absence together, each with different gifts and longings: vain Amy (Florence Pugh) paints and wants to enter high society, gentle Beth (Eliza Scanlen) plays the piano and wants to keep the family together, organised Meg (Emma Watson) wants security and tradition, and tomboy Jo (Saoirse Ronan) wants to write at any cost, while their charming neighbour Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) is caught in between.

Eventually, the girls grow up and set these longings against the world, and each other. In depicting a beloved, much-seen world, Gerwig enriches the book without ever distorting it: the cosy nostalgia of family gathering is here, but so is the trenchant exploration of female prospects and limited opportunities. Skilled writing, immersive performances, and fine period detail all make the familiar story seem like a fully realised world, in a way that seems to flow from the novel rather than against it.

Supplying both a warm, classic familiarity and a sharp, modern touch, Gerwig’s adaptation is ideal holiday fare.

Put you paws together for what will undoubtedly be the most talked about film of the year.


A purrfect cast of professional singers, ballet dancers, film actors and stage stalwarts have been assembled by Tom Hooper, the visionary director of Les Misérables and The King’s Speech, to bring to the screen the Broadway perennial: Cats.


Idris Elba, Jason Derulo, Taylor Swift, Judi Dench, Jennifer Hudson, Rebel Wilson and James Corden are among the clowder.


The film’s an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical, itself based on the 1939 poetry collection Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats by T S Eliot and tells the story of the Jellicle Ball, an annual event where one cat will be chosen by wise Old Deuteronomy to journey to the Heaviside Layer and there be reborn into a new life.


A mixture of vivid lighting, scaled sets, and what has been termed ‘digital fur technology’ give the film a look unlike any other, a dazzling hallucinatory trip into a magical world.

It includes such unforgettable songs as Mr Mistoffelees, Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats and Memory as well as a brand-new song written especially for the film by Webber and Swift.

We are very proud to host this screening to support and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Down’s Syndrome Association.

Zack Gottsagen, a young man with Down’s syndrome leads this wonderfully stunning, Mark Twain-esque adventure.

From the confines of his residential care home, Zak (Gottsagen) dreams of becoming a professional wrestler. With a passion for adventure, he makes his escape and sets sail to meet his idol - The Saltwater Redneck (Thomas Haden Church), and the wrestling school where he started out.  

Along the way, he crosses paths with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a fugitive outlaw who befriends and mentors him on his long and arduous journey.

The unlikely duo cruise along the banks of North Carolina, convincing Zak’s nurse Eleanor (Dakota Johnson) to join in the trail. With an effortlessly human touch, the film explores the back-story of all three characters with insight and compassion whilst maintaining a light-hearted simplicity.

But it’s the stellar performance from newcomer Zack Gottsagen who absolutely steals the show.

Following on from our screenings of My Feral Heart and Sanctuary, this screening celebrates a very special year for the DSA with profits from our ticket sales going to the charity.

Join us after the screening for a panel discussion, which will include members of: St Albans Greenpeace, SustFest, The Green Party, Extinction Rebellion, Friends of the Earth, and our new MP (TBC!).


Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

Many academics believe that people become inactive or paralysed on this topic because it all just feels too overwhelming and alarming.

This is the narrative the next generation needs to see, to aspire to, and to believe is possible.
