What’s on > Cinema

New releases this week include the eerie mother-daughter drama Gwen, starring Maxine Peake; Varda by Agnès, the late, great director’s documentary, shedding light on her experience as a director; and Never Look Away, inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history.

Our big summer film season Sound and Vision: Pop Stars On Film is finally here! Get your dancing shoes ready and come along to opening night film Purple Rain followed by a DJ set in the bar, and check out the other films and special events coming up this week.

This week we’ve also got small retrospective of work by the provocative and controversial Italian director Lina Wertmüller, the first woman to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar; and of course our David Lynch film season continues.
