Save it

This vast multiplex has all the atmosphere of the near-empty mall that surrounds it. But what it lacks in charm, it makes up for in choice, with 15 screens offering blockbusters plus mainstream foreign and Spanish releases. Weekends are seat-specific, so queues tend to be slow-moving; it's worth booking your seat online before you go.

    The title is perfect: 'Distant Voices, Still Lives' writer-director Terence Davies's adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbons's 1932 novel of life in the Scottish countryside is like an old familiar tune, a lusty ballad of love and heartbreak sung with...

    Though this film mostly takes place in Fenyang, the city where Jia Zhangke grew up and which featured in films like 'Xiao Wu', 'Platform' and 'Unknown Pleasures', the Chinese writer-director is clearly trying to do something new here. It’s in thre...

      With dynamite timing and outrageous threads, Ryan Gosling is a blast in this action-comedy from genre veteran Shane Black (‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’, ‘Iron Man 3’). Sharply crafted but still laid back – and hilarious from the off – Black’s buddy-buddy...

        Here’s definitive proof that a single performance can make an entire film. The premise of ‘Central Intelligence’ is simplistic and underwhelming: a former high school star turned jobsworth accountant teams up with former bullying victim turned CIA...

        While 'Finding Dory' is crammed with the kind of visual pleasures we’ve come to expect from Pixar, the story doesn’t always reach the heights of invention upon which the animation giant has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological pr...

        A little orphan girl is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted vegetarian giant and whisked off to an unwelcoming land of over-sized cannibals in Roald Dahl's much-cherished 1982 book 'The BFG'. For this movie version, aimed squarely...

        This high-energy, big-budget new spin on the old Tarzan story is fun to watch if you take it as throwaway kitsch. It imagines Viscount Greystoke (Alexander Skarsgård), best known as chest-beater Tarzan, all grown-up and civilised after a childhood...

        It’s hard to imagine a more Tom Hanks-y setup than prizewinning author Dave Eggers’s 2012 novel ‘A Hologram for the King’. American businessman – and all-round everyman – Alan Clay travels to Saudi Arabia to present a new IT system to the country’...

        Even louder and more rambling than the original, ‘Now You See Me 2’ once again follows rogue band of magicians The Four Horsemen through a series of ostentatious escapades. Forget the old line that you have to see it to believe it – you’re probabl...
