THE FIFTH ELEMENT - 4K REMASTER

One of the most superbly stylised Sci Fi movies of all time, with it's costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier and soundtrack by Eric Serra, this new 4K remaster brings to life the wildly inventive off-kilter technicolor world created by Leon director Luc Besson for his 1997 cult classic. Cab driver Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis subverting his Die Hard role) accidentally crosses paths with Leeloo (Milla Jojovich) a mysterious orange haired Alien only to become embroiled in a race to save the world from a comet hurtling towards earth aided by Cornelius the monk (played by the late great Ian Holm) but hindered by shady Earth industrialist Zorg (Gary Oldman is one his most delicously fun and evil roles). A defining pop art statement of the 90s.

7.40PM SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 27TH

THE LAST DETAIL

Director Hal Ashby (Harold & Maude, Shampoo) directs the one and only Jack Nicholson in this pre Cuckoo's Nest classic about two Navy Shore Patrol officers who are given the job of escorting a military prisoner (played by a young Randy Quaid) who has just been court-martialled and sentenced to eight years for a trivial crime. Knowing that the young sailor is about head into an extended lock-up the two Shore Patrolmen decide to give him one last hurrah on the way to the brig, resulting in much mischief and mayhem from Nicholson and co. A subtle anti-military film and a delicately balanced bittersweet comedy, The Last Detail is one of Nicholson's great roles and one of Ashby's best.

6.30PM SATURDAY OCTOBER 10TH

 SPECIAL DOUBLE BILL  

THE ROOM + THE DISASTER ARTIST

Maybe the greatest double bill ever devised, it's quite simply the best/worst film ever made in Tommy Wiseau's The Room, followed straight after by James Franco's Golden Globe winning tribute to the production of this astonishingly awful film in The Disaster Artist. The legendarily bad The Room (the film that launched a million memes) is actor Tommy Wiseau's misguided passion project and is so bizarrely entertaining it will make you will make you question the very nature of entertainment itself. Followed by The Disaster Artist a film which hilariously dramatises the production of Tommy Wiseau's true cult classic. A hilarious double bill that is an unforgettable experience with an audience.

7.30PM SUNDAY OCTOBER 11TH

SHOPLIFTERS

 This exquisitely crafted and unusual family drama was the deserved winner of the Palme D'or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018, and is one of the most thought provoking and powerful films of recent years. The story follows an unconventional Japanese family struggling on the poverty line who have both an exceptionally powerful familial bond, and a finely developed talent for shoplifting. One day after a session of supermarket stealing they discover an abandoned young girl and decide to take her into their care. Their unofficial adoption of the child creates a chain of events that unearths a series of complex dark family secrets in this exceptionally rich, sometimes thrilling, frequently mysterious and ultimately deeply tender portrait of life on the margins of society.
