Clapham Picturehouse

The jewel in the Picturehouse crown opened in 1992 and has been screening a mix of mainstream releases and independent films from its handy location beside Clapham Common ever since. Like all Picturehouses it’s a super-popular local cinema with a devoted following who come for the snug, anti-multiplex atmosphere and comfy reclining seats. Take your pick from the gut-expanding array of posh snacks and grab a drink at the bar, which has become a destination in itself – and is perfect for a post-film debrief. Plus you can buy a glass of wine to take into the movie.

    Comedy seldom travels well from one culture to another, but from the first, pre-credits episode of this engaging if uneven satire highlighting humanity's more basic instincts, it's clear the young Argentine writer-director Damián Szifron has a kna...

    Hey, girl – go with what you know. Actor-turned-auteur Ryan Gosling’s nutty (and not in a good way) adult fairy tale is like some unholy mix of Nicolas Winding Refn’s black-light fantasias and Terrence Malick’s soul-searching allegories. It goes o...

    Released in the wake of star Paul Walker’s untimely death in a car wreck, ‘Fast & Furious 7’ was always going to lay it on thick with the nostalgic montages and slap on the back, hug-it-out, ‘I’m gonna miss you, dog’ macho bonding. But for all tha...

    A silver fox for a silver crowd: Richard Gere is the magic card up the filmmakers’ sleeve for this warm if rambling sequel to the 2011 hit ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’. Novelist Deborah Moggach only ever wrote one book about a ramshackle India...

    A smart concept is thoroughly wasted in this cute but grating Dreamworks animated comedy. It opens with an alien invasion – but not one of those messy, bloodthirsty ones. Our new extraterrestrial overlords, the cheerful, squashy Boov, merely want ...

    Enough with the feminism. Disney has clearly had enough of these uppity princesses getting all empowered and messing with their fairytales. After ‘Frozen’, and ‘Into the Woods’, it’s back to the basics of being a princess in director Kenneth Brana...

    Alzheimer’s disease is a Greek tragedy: preordained by genetics, the neurodegenerative disorder is an unfathomably cruel death march down a tunnel that disappears behind you and gets darker with every step. 'Still Alice', adapted by married couple...

    This is a handsome and intelligent adaptation of the writings of Irène Némirovsky – the Russian-born French writer who died in Auschwitz and whose two unpublished novellas emerged in 2004 as one book, ‘Suite Française’. In her late thirties at the...
