Tuesday May 29th FINDING YOUR FEET 12A 115 mins

On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob (Imelda Staunton) discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend.  “Stunned, and needing somewhere to figure things out, she finds refuge with her estranged, bohemian older sister Bif (Celia Imrie), a woman who couldn’t be more different from Sandra if she tried. But could the change in scenery and dynamic be just what Sandra needs? Especially when she joins a community dance class and potential new romance with Charlie (Timothy Spall)? THAT WOULD BE A BIG SPOILER BUT PROBABLY.”    Empire

DARKEST HOUR PG 125 mins

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a sceptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

THE POST 12A 116 mins

Oscar winners Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks team up for the first time in this thrilling film based on a true story. Determined to uphold the nation’s civil liberties, Katharine Graham (Streep), publisher of The Washington Post, and hard-nosed editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) join forces to expose a decades-long cover-up. But the two must risk their careers – and their freedom – to bring truth to light in this powerful film with a celebrated cast.

PHANTOM THREAD 15 130 mins

In 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes, and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.
