In 2011, amidst competition from Little Mix and Lou Monte’s ‘Dominick the Donkey’, an unexpected contender took the coveted Christmas number one: a poem of letters sent between soldiers and their loved ones, sung by a choir of servicemen’s wives and partners.

Taking inspiration from their rise to fame, Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty) brings a story of quiet endurance and liberation to cinemas, showing how a simple escape from military life could capture the hearts of millions.

Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour) and Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) star as the uptight Kate and the laid-back Lisa, two dramatically-different women both living in fear for their husbands and sons in Afghanistan. The two’s attitudes inevitably clash after forming a choir for their fellow wives and partners, but will they be able to put their disagreements aside when the invitation of a lifetime arrives: a chance to perform at the Royal Albert Hall.

Though familiar to most, Cattaneo’s take on the Military Wives’ Choir story has a touching blend of humour, tears and soul-stirring achievement. Fans of Calendar Girls and Kinky Boots will especially not want to miss this wonderful tale of finding joy amidst incredible hardship.

Mention the TV programme Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood to nearly any American over 20 and you’ll likely get the same joyful response. Across 912 episodes, Mr. Rogers and his cast of friends taught generations of children to be confident in themselves and to face the world’s challenges with a smile.

Now, director Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) welcomes the world into the Neighborhood with a heart-warming story of acceptance and forgiveness certain to bring a smile to any face, featuring a sensational Oscar-nominated performance by Tom Hanks.

Based on an article published by Esquire in 1998, Matthew Rhys (The Americans, The Post) stars as cynical journalist Lloyd Vogel tackling his latest assignment: who is the ‘real’ Fred Rogers, and can he really be as good-natured as he seems? As a friendship with Mr. Rogers blossoms, however, Lloyd is forced to confront his gloomy view of the world — especially as he looks back on his own difficult past.

Expertly written and directed, Heller’s latest is a beautiful and timely story of how kindness can always overcome cynicism. So why not join us on a visit to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe this month? Bring your comfiest cardigan.

Winning the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay AND Best International Feature at this years’ Oscars, director Bong Joon Ho’s masterful genre-hopping thriller is a definite big screen must-see.

In the South Korean capital of Seoul, the wealthy Park family and the down on their luck Kim family are brought together; the Kim’s youngest son seizes the opportunity to bluff his way into becoming a tutor for the Park’s young daughter in their luxurious mansion home.

This soon becomes a symbiotic bond between the two families as more of the Kim’s become indispensable employees of the wealthy family who in turn provide financial stability to the Kim’s.

That is until an interloper threatens to disrupt the relationship between the two clans. Using the theme of class division that Joon Ho expertly explored in his previous film Snowpiercer, Parasite is an expertly woven thriller utilizing hypnotic performances from a sterling cast (including Joon Ho’s frequent collaborator Song Kang-ho as the patriarch of the Kim family), subtle tonal shifts and deliciously black humour to both entertain and disorientate as the film shifts and shimmies it’s way to a startling climax.

A perfectly-timed legal thriller that sees Avengers star Mark Ruffalo learn a secret regarding an all-powerful company. The pursuit of which could destroy his career, his family, and his life.

Based on the 2016 article "The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare", Todd Haynes directs this true story after brilliant work on films such as Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There and the 2015’s Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara-starring Carol. His lead, Mark Ruffalo, has become most famous for on-screen anger as Bruce Banner / The Hulk. But in Dark Waters, it is the chemical conglomerate DuPont who won’t like him when he’s angry. Not known for keeping quiet about politics in his personal life, and regularly championing environmental causes, in particular campaigning against fracking, Ruffalo is a deft bit of casting for the role of Robert Bilott.

When attorney Robert Bilott is approached with the information that chemical company DuPont is secretly culpable in a string of unexplained deaths, he decides to take on the lawsuit that begins to put his career, his wife (Anne Hathaway) and his safety at grave risk.

‘Why should a woman have to earn her place in the world by looking a particular way?’

In 1970, the Miss World beauty pageant drew audiences of over 25 million UK viewers. Jennifer Hosten (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), is the first contestant ever from Grenada being one of only two black contestants in fifty-eight in an event already surrounded by controversy. A group from the Women’s Liberation movement led by Sally Alexander and Jo Robinson (Keira Knightly and Jessie Buckley) band together, frustrated in this time of structured sexism in the media. This group of passionate individuals birth a plan to disrupt the most public beauty pageant in the world. Cuttingly brutal and in the same way comedic, Greg Kinnear as Bob Hope is a delight to despise, the opposition to the feminist view as we see behind the scenes of the pageant.

With a killer soundtrack featuring Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Joan Armatrading, Philippa Lowthorpe (Call The Midwife) directs the cast of fiery females with a delightfully beautiful edge. Chemistry and sorority shines through in this story of triumph.

Drugs, guns and geezers — that’s right, it’s the next film from Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director, Guy Ritchie.

Fresh from helming Disney’s live adaptation of Aladdin last year, rumours proved true that Ritchie was working on another gangster flick in the Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels mould. And as usual, he’s bolstered by an ensemble cast, with the main A-list weight coming from Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Pearson, an American who moved to London and subsequently built an underground marijuana empire.

Then there is Hugh Grant, reincarnated from his previously posh and charming cad persona into a seedy and sleazy cockney - and he revels in it.

Not to forget, swearing legend, Colin Farrell as a boxing coach with criminal inclinations, joined by Henry Golding, Charlie Hunnam and Michelle Dockery.

As news spreads that Mickey Pearson, the American head of a huge marijuana business in London, is looking to cash out of his empire, an intricate web of plots and schemes are set in motion by London’s criminal underbelly, looking to make Mickey’s fortune their own. Ritchie has made an entertaining and dazzling return to his mockney roots.

This perennially popular musical returns to the big screen to raise the roof and your spirits too!

P. T Barnum (Hugh Jackman) strives to find an outlet for his ferocious imagination, pursuing a string of ill-fated ventures before finally setting up a circus show with never-before-seen acts to amaze his audience.

His show proves controversial, but, after teaming up with playwright Philip Carlyle (Zac Efron) and acrobat Anne Wheeler (Zendaya), his popularity skyrockets. Soon, the father of the modern circus is rubbing shoulders with big names abroad, including Queen Victoria and opera singer Jenny Lind (Rebecca Ferguson). But as Barnum vaults from triumph to triumph, Charity (Michelle Williams), his wife, grows increasingly distant and he struggles to strike a balance between reality and spectacle.

Catchy musical numbers and dazzlingly choreographed sequences - replete with tumblers, dancers and elephants - are impossible to forget. While showcasing his boundless gifts as singer, actor and all-round entertainer, Jackman effortlessly steers this epic extravaganza with a performance that unsurprisingly earned him a Golden Globe nomination.

Heroic earthling Flash Gordon must save the world from the nefarious Ming the Merciless in this lavish, campy adaptation of the famous sci-fi comic strip.

Previously the basis for a more straight-faced 1930s adventure serial, Flash's story is mined here for exaggerated, cartoon humour by screenwriter Lorenzo Semple Jr., a central figure in the similarly campy '60s Batman television series.

Riding on the back of the science fiction craze started by Star Wars. American football hero Flash (Sam Jones) is dragged from Earth to the outer reaches of the Universe where he must battle the evil dictatorship of Ming the Merciless (Max von Sydow). He is helped by fellow adventurer Dale Arden (Melody Anderson), technical wizard Dr Hans Zarkov (Topol), the winged Prince Vultan (Brian Blessed) and the brooding Prince Barin (a pre-Bond Timothy Dalton).

The simple plot mainly serves as an excuse for spectacular sets and action sequences, all set to an appropriately over-the-top rock score by Queen.

For this, its 40th Anniversary 4k restoration, scans of the original 35mm negative were made to produce 4K files. Over 500 hours of manual restoration repaired damage that included image instability, scratches and intermittent flicker.

Gene Kelly’s classic musical, Singin’ in the Rain continues to mesmerise audiences. Follow us on this whimsical journey into the dazzling spectacle of Hollywood’s Golden Age, almost 70 years since its release.

Centring on a trio of actors Don, Kathy and Cosmo (Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor) attempting to save a disastrous period drama by turning it into a musical, whilst also demonstrating to us the changeover from silent pictures to talkies which occurred in the 1920s. Of course it's about romance - as most musicals are! - but it's also about the film industry going through its bumpy transition.

The film still pulses with life; in a movie about making movies, you can really sense the joy they had making it.

How better to describe it than with Gene Kelly’s famous reply on how he was going to approach the song and dance centrepiece of Singin’ In The Rain: “It’s going to be raining and I’m going to be singing. I’m going to have a glorious feeling and I’m going to be happy again.”

This powerful drama is based on shocking real-life events, as told by the women who bravely bought down Fox News CEO Roger Ailes on sexual harassment charges.

Hollywood titan Nicole Kidman, portrays Gretchen Carlson, senior anchor at Fox News, whom after years of tolerating the openly misogynistic workplace atmosphere, becomes the first to come forward against Ailes in this legal saga.

Charlize Theron depicts famous news anchor, Megyn Kelly with John Lithgow portraying the aforementioned Roger Ailes - both of whom look barely recognisable in heavy prosthetics.

Margot Robbie is the young and ambitious producer Kaya Pospisil, a fictional character created to represent Ailes’ younger victims, also coerced and propositioned.

Director Jay Roach (Trumbo) intercuts real-life footage throughout and uses Kelly’s character to break the fourth wall as a reminder this is still an uncomfortable reality for many women in the workplace.

Written by Charles Randolph (The Big Short) the film sets aside politics but highlights the continued importance of the Me Too movement and is a trailblazer in reiterating Hollywood and the mainstream media’s responsibility to bring light to these realities and question its own complicity.

A much-needed and relatable bit of Pixar magic, in which Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Chris Pratt) are two elf brothers living in a mythical realm where the magic has been replaced by modern technological devices.

This is Pixar’s first original movie since 2017’s Coco. After leaning heavily on sequels like Toy Story 4 and Incredibles 2, Onward will be welcomed as some new magic from the animation giants. The focal voice talents come from the winning charm of Tom Holland (Spiderman: Far From Home) and Chris Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy) as the questing brothers. And that’s before mentioning Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld, Veep) and Octavia Spencer (The Shape Of Water).

The story is inspired by director Dan Scanlon’s father’s death when he and his brother were younger. He was particularly inspired after hearing an audio clip of his father speaking.

Upon receiving a magical staff passed down by their father, Ian and Barley Lightfoot discover the staff has the powers to bring their old man back for one day. They undertake a quest to conjure the spell before time runs out.

From Céline Sciamma, the acclaimed director of Girlhood and Water Lilies, comes a Palme D’or nominated tale of forbidden love.

Set in 1770s France, young artist Marianne (Noémie Merlant) is employed to travel to a remote island off the coast of Brittany and paint a portrait of headstrong ingenue Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), who is to be married off to a Milanese nobleman, assuming her depiction meets his approval. Héloïse, fierce in her independence, refuses to sit for the painting, so Marianne poses as a companion hired to join Héloïse in her daily walks wherein she might memorise her subject’s features. However, Héloïse starts to notice the young woman’s intense scrutiny.

In creating this elegiac tale of fleeting passions, director Sciamma took inspiration from the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, in which Orpheus must lead his wife back out of the underworld without ever looking behind him to see if she is following.

Incredible cinematography from Claire Mathon captures the wild, rugged beauty of the Brittany island setting (actually filmed on the Peninsula of Saint-Pierre-Quiberon) whilst maintaining Sciamma’s minimalist aesthetic and mirroring the slow-burn storytelling.

They’ve had many misfires trying to revive their line-up of classic monsters, but Universal have finally struck gold in this modern re-imagining of H.G. Wells classic tale.

The remarkable and long overdue true story of Harriet Tubman, who fled her slave plantation in 1849, walking over 100 miles North to freedom.

Hailing from Stockwell, London, Cynthia Erivo (Widows, Bad Times at the El Royale) shines as the inspiring Tubman. Harriet’s long walk to freedom is just the start of her extraordinary story.

Helping Harriet on her harrowing journey are Marie Buchanon (played by the multi-talented singer and actress, Janelle Monáe) and William Still (Leslie Odom Jr., the Tony award-winning actor in Broadway’s Hamilton).

Director and co-writer Kasi Lemmons redefines the previously told ‘slave story’ narrative to reflect the truly unbelievable nature of Harriet’s bravery, determination and relentless vision of an America free of slavery.

With epic, action-packed drama, you will be left on edge as Harriet faces terrifying obstacles and a nationwide bounty hunt led by her slave owner Gideon Brodess (Joe Alwyn – The Favourite). Taking almost three decades to reach the screen, Harriet is the heroic biopic Harriet Tubman deserves.

A new adaptation of the great Jane Austen novel revels in visual and verbal invention without ever forsaking the letter.

At the rarefied estate of Hartfield, the wealthy and precocious Emma Woodhouse (Anya Taylor-Joy) discovers that she has a talent for matchmaking. She vows to wield it for the sake of her friends and neighbours — regardless of their own desires. While attending to her anxious father (Bill Nighy), she seeks the most pleasing union for her hapless acquaintances, to the dismay of her sagacious neighbour Mr Knightley (Johnny Flynn).

Thanks to an inspired choice of writer and director — rock photographer Autumn de Wilde and award-winning novelist Eleanor Catton — the film triumphantly has its cake and eats it. The film faithfully adheres to Austen’s diamond wit and absorbing character while slathering it in a sumptuous, sugary, yet suitable visual style.

Instead of the pale porcelain of typical Austen adaptations, the film imagines the Regency as an absurdly serious, colourfully self-contained wonderland, a style that intensifies Austen’s own.

The stunning English landscapes and supporting actors ground the theatrics, leaving a truly novel adaptation that is neither staid nor indulgent.

Australia in the 1870s: as the spoils of the gold rush roll-on, wealthy travellers through the bush are ambushed and robbed by gangs of fearsome ‘bushrangers’. Chief among them was a young man and his band of loyal followers – the infamous Ned Kelly, whose robberies and raids made him a nation-wide legend. In the dying days of the Australian frontier, it was the Kelly Gang that raged against modernity.

But this is far from your standard outlaw movie. With George MacKay (1917) following in the footsteps of Heath Ledger and Mick Jagger in playing the legendary criminal.

Director Justin Kurzel (Macbeth, Snowtown) pries into the moments that shaped Kelly – his time as an accomplice to the grizzled bushranger Harry Power (Russell Crowe), his family’s brushes with British colonial authority, and his strange relationship with the villainously-charming Constable Fitzpatrick (Nicholas Hoult). Kelly is determined to write his own heroic life story… but ultimately, all is not quite as he tells it.

Boasting an impressive cast, beautiful cinematography and pulsing punk energy throughout, Kurzel’s latest is a brutal and fresh retelling of the Kelly legend that’s sure to stay with you long after the credits roll.

Though Louisa May Alcott’s 151-year-old novel has seen many great adaptations already, Greta Gerwig’s new take never feels redundant or old-fashioned.

During the Civil War in New England, four sisters face adolescence, poverty, and fatherly absence together, each with different gifts and longings: vain Amy (Florence Pugh) paints and wants to enter high society, gentle Beth (Eliza Scanlen) plays the piano and wants to keep the family together, organised Meg (Emma Watson) wants security and tradition, and tomboy Jo (Saoirse Ronan) wants to write at any cost, while their charming neighbour Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) is caught in between.

Eventually, the girls grow up and set these longings against the world, and each other. In depicting a beloved, much-seen world, Gerwig enriches the book without ever distorting it: the cosy nostalgia of family gathering is here, but so is the trenchant exploration of female prospects and limited opportunities. Skilled writing, immersive performances, and fine period detail all make the familiar story seem like a fully realised world, in a way that seems to flow from the novel rather than against it.

Part of the ‘A Cinematic Odyssey: Postcards from Europe’ strand.

The middle, least-seen entry of Sergio Leone’s and Clint Eastwood’s great trilogy still casts an imposing shadow on the history of the Western, inciting excitement that is still palpable today.

Two bounty hunters, Van Cleef’s formal, sardonic Colonel Mortimer and Eastwood’s icy, impenetrable “Man With no Name” (here known as “Manco”) are set on the trail of El Indio, a sadistic, ever-smoking bank robber (Volonté). Matters soon become personal as Manco infiltrates Indio’s gang, and Mortimer reveals a deep, painful connection between their quarry and himself. Ranking between A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in both scale and length, the film has all the virtues of both: tense, machoistic standoffs in raw Spanish landscapes, bridged by Leone’s muscular direction, Eastwood’s grizzled, statuesque grandeur, and Ennio Morricone’s lyrical, melodramatic music, which was played during filming to guide the mood.

After missing the chance to screen this film in March, we can’t think of a better time than now to celebrate the late, great Ennio Morricone as part of grand re-re-opening.

This film will have a short video introduction from Dr Paul Sutton.

Come join us on a great escape to the Western Isles in Bill Forsyth’s total charmer, Local Hero. It might just be the greatest Scottish film ever made.

Oil exec MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) travels from his box-like office in Texas to Scotland with an electric briefcase and millions of dollars in an attempt to buy a village, bulldoze it and turn the land into an oil refinery. Along the way there are great comic turns from Peter Capaldi, Fulton Mackay, Denis Lawson and the great Burt Lancaster as oil baron Felix Happer, a man who has slumped into a technological numbness. It’s not until they reach the idyllic coastal village of Ferness that things quietly unravel, as they are seduced by the beauty of the Western Isles and the charm of their inhabitants.

Its themes on the value of the natural world and Scotland and its people are as relevant today as they were in 1983.

In a nice flip to the tweeness that can be found in similar films, the locals turn out to be not so homespun as you’d expect. Forsyth’s writing and direction is at its best, and in these uncertain times of lockdowns and isolation, this is the ideal escape film.

Amelie is both the story of its heroine’s eccentric quest for love and an affectionate, shamelessly old-fashioned portrait of Paris, particularly the picturesque area around Montmartre and the eccentric characters living there. Visually brilliant, fast-moving and full of cinephile in-references, Amelie is also instantly accessible and entertaining.

As Jeunet and the brilliant cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel spin the camera around Paris, from Montmartre to Notre Dame, and Yann Tiersen’s unmistakable piano and accordion soundtrack swells, it’s hard not to fall under the spell of this moonstruck romance.

Director Rob Reiner's The Princess Bride is a gently amusing, affectionate pastiche of a medieval fairy tale adventure, offering a similar blend of warm, literate humour as his Stand By Me (1985) and When Harry Met Sally (1989).

Adapted from his own novel, William Goldman's script plays with the conventions of such 1980s fantasies as Ladyhawke and Legend (both 1985), and with the budget never allowing for spectacle, sensibly concentrates on creating a gallery of memorable characters.

Robin Wright makes a delightful Princess Buttercup, Cary Elwes is splendid as Westley and "Dread Pirate Roberts", while Mandy Patinkin makes fine Spanish avenger. With winning support from Mel Smith, Peter Cook, Billy Crystal and Carol Kane there is sometimes a Terry Gilliam/Monty Python feel to the proceedings, and the whole film is beautifully shot, with a memorably romantic main theme by Mark Knopfler.

Occasionally interrupted by Peter Falk as a grandfather reading the story to his grandson, The Princess Bride is an elegant post-modern family fable about storytelling itself. A modest, small-scale work that manages to be both cynically modern and genuinely romantic all at once. As charming as you wish.

“You don’t know what you’re into down here in Alabama — you’re guilty from the moment you’re born.” Based on the real-life memoir of the same name, Just Mercy sees Michael B. Jordan taking on a deeply racist system, and Jamie Foxx as an innocent man sentenced to die.

Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, Just Mercy is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who joins Brie Larson again after work on Short Term 12 and The Glass Castle.

Jordan, meanwhile, portrays the real-life lawyer and social activist Bryan Stevenson, who sets up the Equal Justice Initiative with Larson’s character. Jamie Foxx is Walter McMillian, the subject of Stevenson’s Just Mercy book. Foxx plays the part with a huge weariness, believing the deeply prejudiced system will not allow him to walk away alive.

Fresh out of Harvard University, Bryan Stevenson decides to work in Alabama to defend innocent inmates on death row, and those who cannot afford representation. He meets McMillian, who has been convicted of murdering an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving the contrary.

Stevenson must battle racism and a powerful system as he fights to save McMillian’s life.

Warning - no babies for 15 Cert.

At the height of the First World War, two young soldiers are tasked with crossing the German lines to deliver a message that, if delivered in time, could prevent a bloody massacre of their British comrades.

Director Sam Medes (American Beauty, Skyfall) has based this film on the fragment of a story he was told by his grandfather, World War I veteran and novelist Alfred Mendes.

To achieve this mammoth task of a contemporary, immersive war film Mendes has enlisted an impressive cast of Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, and Benedict Cumberbatch. The two starring roles, however, are very much the biggest yet for George MacKay (Sunshine on Leith, Captain Fantastic), and Dean-Charles Chapman, best known as King Tommen in Game Of Thrones.

Lance Corporal William Schofield (MacKay) and Lance Corporal Tom Blake (Chapman) must hand-deliver a message to the 2nd Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment. The Regiment is closing in on the German forces, who have feigned a retreat in order to ambush and destroy their British enemies.

Roger Deakins’ Oscar-winning cinematography makes 1917 a simply breath-taking experience.

The late Joel Schumacher, who sadly passed away on June 22, 2020, is being celebrated this summer with his hugely enjoyable and hip horror comedy.

Schumacher’s first big hit came in 1985 with the Brat Pack drama St. Elmo’s Fire, it showcased various stars from Emilio Esteves, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Andie MacDowell and Andrew McCarthy.

This led Schumacher to make The Lost Boys, which became an even bigger hit in the summer of 1987.

When Mike (Jason Patric) and his brother Sam (Corey Haim) move to the beach town of Santa Carla, California, they soon discover that beyond the lights and music of the amusement park and the endless beach parties, the town holds a sinister secret… It’s a haven for a gang of teenage vampires.

As Mike becomes seduced into the lifestyle of the gang, and its leader David (Kiefer Sutherland), it’s up to his younger brother to save him. Enlisting the help of the infamous Frog Brothers (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander), they arm themselves with stakes, garlic and holy water-filled squirt guns to destroy the unholy brood once and for all.

With the sad news of Ennio Morricone’s passing, what better way to celebrate his incredible career than to revisit one of his greatest scores - Giuseppe Tornatore’s richly romantic coming-of-age story on the enduring power of film.

After hearing of an old friend’s death, an aging and isolated filmmaker returns to his bright and dusty Sicilian hometown and comes to remember how he fell in love with the movies.

As a young boy dubbed “Toto” lost in a family fractured by the recent Second World War and bored with the crusty Church which he serves at, the younger director is enraptured by the town’s cinema, and relentlessly badgers Alfredo, its projectionist, until he introduces him to the trade and its secrets.

As Toto grows up and takes over the business, both the fading Alfredo and the evolving cinema help him negotiate life and love, before he is forced to choose between his beloved home and his greater destiny.

It transcends boundaries of language and country, as this film - and its huge audience’s here-demonstrates.

Join us for this Oscar-winning classic, starring Doris Day as the gun-toting, whip-cracking Wild West whirlwind.

Calamity Jane is a rootin', tootin' shootin' hoyden in the western town of Deadwood. When she isn't tearing up the town, Jane spends her time cussing out Wild Bill Hickok (Howard Keel).

The plot gets under way when Jane promises the citizens of Deadwood that she can persuade classy Chicago stage star Adelaide Adams (Gale Robbins) to perform at the local opry house. Through a case of mistaken identity, Jane brings Adelaide's maid Katie (Allyn Ann McLerie) back to town, but Katie proves to be a success all the same.

There are wide-open Technicolor Western spaces, lots of high-stepping dances and a hummable humdinger of a score by Academy Award-winning songwriters Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster. Taking their first Oscar for the classic ballad Secret Love, the song became a million-selling hit for Doris Day – one of Hollywood's most iconic stars, in this, one of her most beloved roles.

God be praised! For the first time since… well, the last time it was shown in this building, we present the greatest medieval tale since Geoffrey Chaucer first thought “you know, I’ve got a brilliant idea for a story”. How better to celebrate the life of the late Terry Jones than with the Pythons’ unforgettable take on the Arthurian legend – as hilarious, bizarre and incredibly silly now as it was 45 years ago.

England, 932 A.D.: a land of shrubbery arrangers, enchanters called Tim, and anarcho-syndicalist peasants. In these dark times, Arthur, King of the Britons (accompanied by the Knights of the Round Table), is charged by a rather grumpy God to find the sacred Holy Grail. Can the brave knights take on foul beasts, overcome perilous challenges and endure endless taunting by Frenchmen to find the treasure they seek (before the budget runs out)?

Whether you’re new to the Pythons or know their work better than your own ability to breathe, who could resist the chance to see the film that “makes Ben Hur look like an Epic” on the big screen once more?

A cinematic fairy tale of a young boy Elliott and his best friend E.T., remains Spielberg’s most personal and touching film.

You could argue that E.T. is primarily a wish-fulfilment fantasy - who wouldn’t want a best friend who’s not only an alien but has magical telekinetic powers! However, this tear-jerking tale is rooted in Spielberg’s own childhood feelings of isolation and anxiety following his parents’ divorce. Elliott is similarly from a broken home and the symbiotic relationship between him and E.T. grows throughout the film until E.T.’s very survival depends on the boy’s love and empathy.

Spielberg draws incredible naturalistic performances from his child cast, especially Henry Thomas (Elliott) and Drew Barrymore as sister Gertie. A wonderful script by Melissa Mathison and a surging score by John Williams pack a mighty emotional punch, but the unsung hero is Carlo Rambaldi, who created E.T (from Spielberg’s initial concept of Einstein’s eyes on a baby’s face). It’s impossible to keep in mind that the small creature isn’t real. He expresses puzzlement, anxiety, mischief, humour, affection and loneliness with eloquent ease.

As much a buddy movie as a western, William Goldman’s script keeps Paul Newman and Robert Redford well supplied with wry lines and double takes.

“Most of what follows is true,” announces the opening caption, setting the playful tone for this tale of bank-robbing outlaws who find the Old West getting too hot for them, before heading for new pastures in Bolivia.

As that caption suggests, writer William Goldman and director George Roy Hill are less interested in authentic historical atmosphere, than in having fun, with Newman and Redford making a wonderfully relaxed double act.

The laidback 1969 vibe is further enhanced by the hints of ménage à trois with moll Etta Place (Katharine Ross) and music by Burt Bacharach, including the hit song ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head’.

Note-perfect performances, a screenplay steeped in both nostalgia and a timely sense of insight, and anti-heroes you can't help but love: it's no surprise that the always re-watchable Butch And Sundance was once labelled the most likeable film ever made.
