What’s on > Cinema

We’ve got two new releases to bring you this week – Martin Scorsese’s epic saga of organised crime in postwar America The Irishman and riveting political thriller The Report.

We were delighted to announce that we’ll be holding a Q&A with director Ken Loach following our Pay-What-You-Can screening of Sorry We Missed You. Booking is only available by phone or at the box office, so speak to one of our team to find out more. Our celebration of the gentle genius of Yasmin Ahmed continues with Mukhsin, a captivating account of childhood friendships.

Coming up next week is the release of Judy and Punch, Mirrah Foulkes’ fierce, darkly comic and epic female-driven revenge story, as well as Permission, a story about a futsal team trying to change women’s rights in Iran, based on true events.

Continuing this week we have Meeting Gorbachev, Luce, A Dog Called Money, Monos, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, and  Sorry We Missed You.
