    The only Yuletide favourite to pivot around an attempted suicide, Capra’s post-war fable is a fascinating melange of social and personal impulses and the questionable charms of home. James Stewart is impeccable as George Bailey, the Bedford Falls ...

    Chile’s Sebastián Lelio pays attention to overlooked female stories – as in his recent Oscar-winning ‘A Fantastic Woman’ and its resilient transgender heroine. The director’s forte is on display in his daring but distancing latest, a drama that er...

    The afterlife has rarely been quiet for Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who died young in 1991 after a flurry of late-life creativity. First came ‘Wayne’s World’, with Mike Myers head-banging along to Queen’s 1975 hit ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Then cam...

    The Grinch is back, free of the grip of Jim Carrey, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch and, in Grinch terms, a bit less grinchy (ungrinchy?) than you might expect. Unlike the 2000 live-action Carrey movie, this new spin on the Dr. Seuss tale is comput...

Independent cinema - the kind you want to go to and support!


Probably one of the few truly independent cinemas left in London. Shortwave is nestled in the newly gentrified bosom of Bermondsey Square and is a tiny cinema (booking your tickets online is strongly recommended: the capacity of Shortwave's only screen is 52). The programme is mainly geared towards new releases and shows a good mix of commercial and indie films. The attached cafe/bar also serves a range of locally-brewed beers and snacks.
