Book Now
A Japanese couple stuck with part-time jobs and hence inadequate incomes avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour. The younger and the older of the household are in on the act. The unusual routine is about to change from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic, however, as the couple open their doors to a beleaguered teenager. The reasons for the family and friends' habit and their motivations come under the microscope.

In this rich and impressive drama based on Naomi Alderman’s novel, bohemian photographer Ronit (Rachel Weisz) returns home to north London when her rabbi father dies. She is now an outsider from the Orthodox Jewish community but is welcomed by her old friends Esti and Dovid (Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola). As Ronit and Esti’s passionate feelings start to resurface, so do the suspicions of their conservative community. A powerful love story, beautifully played.

Book Now
Half a century after Julie Andrews glided onto our screens as the magical nanny, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) returns to bring some joy to Michael Banks’ family after they suffer a personal loss. The film is set in 1935, 25 years after the original, and includes a number of nods to the classic – from flying kites to animated penguins – and, of course, Dick Van Dyke. A visually dazzling treat with great performances and glorious new songs.

Another chance to see this barnstorming celebration of the extraordinary music of Queen and the incredible life and talent of their lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek, Mr Robot). The meteoric rise of the band is followed by Mercury’s attempt at a solo career as his lifestyle spirals out of control and he faces a diagnosis of AIDS.
