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.

    Joss Whedon’s first ‘Avengers’ movie was the epic finale to Marvel’s cinematic Phase One, herding all the franchise’s disparate elements in a rousing, rewarding whole. ‘Age of Ultron’, though, has a definite mid-season feel to it, telling a compel...

    Don’t be fooled by the fancy source material: ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ may be adapted from Thomas Hardy’s nineteenth-century novel, but it’s still a movie that opens with Carey Mulligan on a pony as it gallops toward a rainbow. Set in a patch ...

    A perfect Swedish family’s skiing trip in the French Alps seems to be going just fine in Ruben Ostlund’s remarkably confident and subtle comedy, a film in which domesticity unravels deliciously. Apart from a little whingeing from the kids, everyon...

  •  If you’re planning on taking a gamble this festival, you could do a lot worse than catching Dagur Kári’s follow-up to ‘Noi Albinoi’, a drifting and delightfully funny shaggy-dog story of graffiti artist Daniel (Cedergren) and his utter detachment...
