Max is a spoiled terrier who enjoys a comfortable life in a New York building until his owner adopts Duke, a giant and unruly canine. During their walk outside, they encounter a group of ferocious alley cats and wind up in a truck that’s bound for the pound. Luckily, a rebellious bunny named Snowball swoops in to save the doggy duo from captivity. In exchange, Snowball demands that Max and Duke join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who’ve done them wrong.

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Jeannie Berlin, Steve Carell, Parker Posey & Kristen Stewart.

Set in the 1930s, Woody Allen’s bittersweet romance café society follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman to Hollywood, where he falls in love, and back to New York, where he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life. Centering on events in the lives of Bobby’s colourful Bronx family, the film is a glittering valentine to the movie stars, socialites, playboys, debutantes, politicians, and gangsters who epitomised the excitement and glamour of the age.

Saturday 28th January 7.15pm

Starring: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Sharron Percy & Harriet Ghost.

Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with a single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.

PG 556mins

Sunday 29th January 10am

 

 

 

Please be aware that there will be no set intervals during this screening. Due to the length of this title doors will remain open throughout the duration so audience members can arrive at later times. 

The creators of the brilliant French documentary Shoah courageously assume that their audience is willing to sit through 570 minutes’ worth of interviews and little else… rest assured that you will sit and listen. Relentless “inquisitor” Claude Lanzmann probes the memories of several survivors of the Holocaust–as well as several ex-Nazis who helped perpetrate the horrors. Gradually, one becomes aware that what happened in Germany and occupied Europe in the years 1933 through 1945 was not as “unthinkable” as it may seem to modern viewers; the recollections of those directly involved demonstrate all too well that it can happen anywhere at any time. One review of Shoah has carped that “it really could have been a bit shorter.” No, it couldn’t.
