A solid mix of independent and foreign releases alongside selected mainstream blockbusters and special events

Supposedly one of Quentin Tarantino's favourite cinemas, this century-old picture house favours indie and foreign language releases alongside a handful of the bigger mainstream releases. Also home to the odd special event and a cracking little bar.

      The ring of truth sounds quietly, and sometimes not at all, in Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth', the Italian auteur's occasionally dazzling but low-key and rambling follow-up to 2013's 'The Great Beauty'. It's his second English-language film after 2009...

      Here’s the latest in the Exhibition on Screen series of documentary tours around blockbuster art exhibits. Along with some knowledgeable experts and an iffy recreation of the artist by an actor wearing stick-on sideburns, we take a nose around the...
