Greenwich Picturehouse

Hydar Dewachi

Instantly recognisable by its striking glass and brick exterior (which throws buckets of natural light on to the box office and slender upstairs bar), the Greenwich Picturehouse is the number one destination for film lovers in south-east London to watch a movie. There’s everything you'd expect from a Picturehouse cinema here – plump seats, a decent range of drinks and snacks, a programme mixing top-end mainstream releases with artier films – plus a downstairs bar that doubles as a venue for comedy and music gigs. And if you’re feeling peckish, there’s a little Spanish restaurant attached to the foyer.

    'Can’t you be a girl for a moment or two longer?’ That’s kindly, avuncular Mark (Timothy Spall) talking to his deadly-serious teenage goddaughter, Ginger (Elle Fanning), in Sally Potter’s intimate, intense coming-of-age drama. It’s set during ...

    Looking at it one way, ‘Boyhood’ is a spectacularly cheap way of saving on actors’ salaries. To capture his rambling yet absorbing Texas family drama, director Richard Linklater (‘Before Midnight’) agreed with several actors – including his eight-...

    ‘Most of the successful people in Hollywood are failures as human beings.’ So said Marlon Brando. But what happens when their 15 minutes are up? It’s not like failure suddenly transforms former mega-celebs into humble human beings who can pick up ...

    The first film ended with Winter, the dolphin with a prosthetic fin, being rehomed in a Florida aquarium. You’d be forgiven for thinking the story had already peaked. However, this sequel is an unexpectedly worthwhile follow-up. Depressed after th...

    Pastiching James Bond is hardly a new idea (see Woody Allen in the 1967 ‘Casino Royale’, not to mention the entire ‘Austin Powers’ franchise), but that hasn’t stopped writer-director Matthew Vaughn from trying his hand at a little counter-espionag...

    ‘Do you like roller coasters?’ The grown-up asking that question has kidnapped a 14-year-old boy and put a sack over his head. Seconds later, he’s driving like a maniac with the kid in the boot, doing handbrake turns until his face looks more stea...

    Anyone with fond memories of the books or a dusty Paddington Bear sitting on a shelf in their childhood bedroom can rest easy: this first-ever movie take on Peru’s furriest export is a cuddly, thoughtful triumph. But not too cuddly. The beauty of...

    Props to the filmmakers behind this uneven yet affecting US indie for giving comics Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig a pair of roles that allow them to stretch into unexplored dramatic territory (and, you know, be funny once in a while). Hader and Wiig...
