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.

    Pioneers of ‘reality rap’ (we now call it gangsta) NWA deserve their own movie. No doubt. But is the often sentimental, occasionally dull ‘Straight Outta Compton’ the best version of that movie? Only partly. There’s enjoyable humour (and beautiful...
