The Children Act

Thu 27 Sep | 4.30pm

Written by Ian McEwan, based on his own novel of the same name, The Children Act tells the story of a High Court judge, faced with a uniquely challenging case, in the midst of a marital crisis.

Studio 54

Thu 27 Sep | 7.00pm

Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism – a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolise an entire era. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.



Sat 29 Sep | 2.00pm

From the team behind the Academy Award-winning Get Out, comes BlackKklansman, directed by visionary filmmaker Spike Lee, back on top form.

Set in the early 1970s, it tackles the true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department who, determined to make a name for himself, bravely sets out on a dangerous mission to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.


Leaning into the Wind

Sat 29 Sep | 4.30pm

Sixteen years after the release of the groundbreaking film Rivers and Tides – Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time director Thomas Riedelsheimer has returned to work with the artist. Leaning into the Wind – Andy Goldsworthy follows Goldsworthy on his exploration of the layers of his world and the impact of the years on himself and his art. As Goldsworthy introduces his own body into the work it becomes at the same time even more fragile and personal and also sterner and tougher, incorporating massive machinery and crews on his bigger projects. Riedelsheimer’s exquisite film illuminates Goldsworthy’s mind as it reveals his art.
