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.

    This bleak, brutal debut from Northern Irish writer-director Stephen Fingleton is set in an alternate present, where food is scarce and survival means hunkering down in the woods, growing a shaggy beard and farming the land. When a gentle-looking ...

    ‘Zoolander’ fans can breathe a flamboyant sigh of relief: 15 years on, this sequel to the fashion-world satire is as funny, silly and lovingly teasing as anyone could have hoped. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return as dopey male models Derek Zoolan...

    Taking the ‘Cabin in the Woods’ approach of chucking in all the monsters and seeing what sticks, this kid-friendly spooker based on the crazy-huge-selling stories by RL Stine is more goofy fun than such a blatant cash-in ought to be. It all begins...

    Ralph Fiennes follows his devilishly comic performance in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' with an equally hilarious turn in this Italian set, mostly English-language playful and highly strung melodrama from Luca Guadagnino ('I Am Love'). The film is a ...

    The ring of truth sounds quietly, and sometimes not at all, in Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth', the Italian auteur's occasionally dazzling but low-key and rambling follow-up to 2013's 'The Great Beauty'. It's his second English-language film after 2009...
