    This scrappy, intense doc is a compendium of voices-off musing on the meaning of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, ‘The Shining’ (which will be re-released at Halloween). Have you ever thought the entire film was an apology for Kubrick’s faking ...

    According to Hollywood legend, the Oscars banned animals from being eligible for Best Actor after German shepherd Rin Tin Tin won most votes in 1929. That won’t sound so ridiculous if you watch this powerful Hungarian drama featuring the Al Pacino...

My favourite cinema in London, hands-down. Tucked-away in a railway arch on a very unassuming street near Loughborough Junction, this place is a cosy haven from the outside world, showing a brilliant selection of films. Don't expect blockbusters, do expect carefully chosen gems. There's also a bar, which is kind of essential in a cinema these days, don't you think? It's an independent, membership cinema, but membership is well worth purchasing and you get to bring guests along for next-to-nothing. And you can order from nearby Firezze Ppizza, which gets delivered to the cinema. Pizza delivery, in a cinema. And a bar. And great films. It's the dream, surely?
