From the team behind Spitfire comes Lancaster, the story of the iconic WW2 bomber told through the words of the last surviving crew members, re-mastered archive material, and extraordinary aerial footage of the RAF’s last airworthy Lancaster. Responsible for some of the most famous and infamous missions in WW2 history, from the Dambuster raids to the controversial bombing of Dresden, the Lancaster would help turn the tide of war. But there was a deadly price to be paid. 55,000 young men - half of all Bomber Command’s aircrew - died over Nazi-occupied Europe. Their average age was just 22. Narrated by Charles Dance, Lancaster is an epic and poignant story of courage, fear, friendship, and the moral complexities of war.

From acclaimed filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (Eden, Things to Come), Bergman Island is a dazzling and bittersweet romantic drama set on the breathtaking island of Fårö, where revered filmmaker Ingmar Bergman lived and worked for over forty years. Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth) are filmmakers, hoping to find inspiration for their next films as they retreat to the Swedish island for rest, recreation and creative inspiration. As the summer passes by and the couple attempt to pursue their own work surrounded by details of Bergman’s creative output and complicated personal life, Chris becomes fascinated by the island and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Reminders of Bergman’s legacy playfully influences both stories, and the lines between reality and fiction progressively blur as Hanson-Løve explores how the creative process, and the couple’s relationship, is affected by everyday life in this evocative landscape.

In anticipation of the release of The Railway Children Return, we are screening the original film for a one-day special on Sunday 3rd July. When Father is mysteriously taken away by the police one night, Bobbie, Phyllis, and Peter move to the country with Mother to start a new, more modest life. The children while away the summer days playing on the local railway, where they make the acquaintance of station porter Mr. Perks and the Old Gentleman, who waves to them from his 1st Class carriage every morning. In awe of the great steam locomotives that thunder down the track, the children’s resourcefulness is put to great use: one day preventing a derailment, the next saving an injured cross-country runner; all whilst they await the return of their beloved Father. Featured in the BFI Top 100 British Films of all time, The Railway Children has been an inspiration to old and young audiences alike since its initial release in 1970.
