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.

    From sidekicks to centre-stage superstars, the Minions have busted out of the ‘Despicable Me’ franchise and gone rogue in this berserk slice of semi-silent slapstick silliness. Little, yellow, peachy-keen, and essentially useless, the Minions are ...

    Finland’s adorably huggable Moomins first appeared in a comic strip by the late illustrator and writer Tove Jansson way back in the 1940s. This new movie version, voiced in English by the likes of Russell Tovey, honours the charm of Jansson’s draw...

    The fourth film in the series and the first in 14 years, 'Jurassic World' serves up another theme park and another bunch of knuckleheaded scientists cloned from the same strand of foresight-impaired DNA. It has absolutely no reason for being – exc...

    Bill Cosby, 9/11, Robin Williams, Charlie Hebdo: those are just some of the things that ‘Ted 2’ makes fun of… in a single scene. Needless to say, this sequel is every bit as irreverent as the 2012 original with which ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacF...

    Precision-tooled yet lacking even the smallest glint of red-eyed emotion or coherence, this fifth 'Terminator' film will make your head hurt. But who can blame a studio for trying? The durable premise, perfect for sequels, concerns an unstoppable ...

    Male strippers – those baby-oiled studs the colour of over-brewed tea with buttocks waxed smooth like two Granny Smiths in clingfilm – are so lame that no ’80s revival can give them a comeback. The miracle of Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 film ‘Magic M...
