"★★★★★ – A seductive piece of myth-making" – Guardian

Set during the tumult of late-1960s Northern Ireland, the film follows Buddy (Jude Hill), a young boy on the cusp of adolescence, as he navigates a landscape of working-class struggle, sweeping cultural changes, and increasing sectarian violence. Buddy dreams of a glamorous future that will whisk him far from the Troubles, but, in the meantime, he finds consolation in his charismatic Pa (Jamie Dornan) and Ma (Caitríona Balfe), and his spry, tale-spinning grandparents (Ciarán Hinds and Judi Dench).


Beautifully shot in lustrous black and white and with a wonderfully talented ensemble cast, Belfast is a tender and poignant coming-of-age tale that will win your heart with an equal measure of hearty laughs and tears.

The 400 Blows (4K) (PG)

★★★★★ – Guardian. Francois Truffaut’s masterpiece follows the difficult life of Antoine Doinel, a 13-year-old Parisian boy who spending his days with his best friend, Rene, in a world full of cruel teachers, careless parents and selfish adults.


"★★★★★ – François Truffaut’s coming-of-age masterwork" – Guardian


"A landmark in modern cinema" – BBC


"★★★★★ – one of the greatest movies about childhood, from anywhere, ever" – Independent


"★★★★★ – Vibrant, visually exciting and emotionally resonant" – Empire


★★★★★ – Time Out


Restored in stunning 4K, The 400 Blows returns to the big screen.


An outstanding piece of cinema from the French New Wave movement, the film was director Francois Truffaut’s directorial debut and his response to what he felt was wrong with the film industry in France at that time.


Achingly poetic and founded mostly on elements from Truffaut’s own childhood, the film is – at its core – a simple character study of a 13-year-old boy, and is strengthened by a highly naturalistic performance from Jean-Pierre Léaud in the role of Antoine Doinel.

Leopoldstadt (12A)

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

LGBTQ+ Filmmakers Showcase: Tales of Inter- and Intra-Actions (18)

In partnership with De Montfort University, as part of #DMUpride to mark LGBTQ+ History Month, we present a specially selected programme of short films from LGBTQ+ filmmakers, followed by a Q&A and panel discussion.


In partnership with De Montfort University, as part of #DMUpride to mark LGBTQ+ History Month, we present a specially selected programme of five short films from LGBTQ+ filmmakers, followed by a Q&A and panel discussion.


We’ll be discussing with the filmmakers what queer living looks like to them. The focal point of discussion will be inter-actions in the heteronormative world and intra-actions in the queer world, to understand and celebrate the construction of LGBTQ+ identities. We’ll be exploring moments of queer joy, hardship and triumph, along with what authenticity means to them.



Film Programme:


Everyman (Dir: Jake Goessen)

A personal, visual essay about gender transition – focusing on the social context and implications and exploring how the world is different living as female compared to being perceived as male.


Cindy (Dir: Rosanagh Griffiths)

Cindy’s first drag performance isn’t exactly a success; when a filmed wardrobe malfunction unexpectedly goes viral, she is forced to face the reactions of her families – the one she’s born into, and the one she’s chosen.


Finger Prick (Dir: Edward Buxton)

Alone in the bathroom, 26-year-old Alexi continues to deal with feelings of shame and guilt after one night of discreet pleasure, while he takes a home HIV test.


Sweet Mother (Dir: Zane Igbe)

Set in Sheffield, this short drama tells the story of a British-Nigerian man who is forced to confront cultural rejection when his mother discovers his sexuality.


The Cost of Living (Dir: Alice Trueman)

When Lily, a disconnected, neurotic, wellness-freak, has a brush with death, she comes face-to- face with her greatest fear. But ‘Death’ appears to Lily as a femme fatale and Lily unexpectedly finds herself giddy with desire. A surreal, comedy-noir about waking up to life.



Post-screening discussion:


The post-screening Q&A and panel discussion will be hosted by Astra Sword. She will be joined by Edward Buxton (writer and director of Finger Prick), Rosanagh Griffiths (writer, director, and co-producer of Cindy), Zane Igbe (writer and director of Sweet Mother) and Alice Trueman (editor, writer, and director of The Cost of Living).

On a glorious Greek evening, screen legend Bill Murray and world renowned cellist Jan Vogler rock the Acropolis with a timeless mix of music, literature and poetry. Captured on film by director Andrew Muscato, Murray and Vogler are joined by the dazzling Mira Wang (violin) and dynamic Vanessa Perez (piano).

Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the wildly entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is infused with the one-of-a-kind charm of Bill Murray.


The ‘New Worlds’ project emerged from a chance encounter between Murray and Vogler, who met on a flight from Berlin to New York in 2013, with Murray amused that Vogler’s cello was taking up the window seat.

The Pharaoh's Daughter (TBC)

Rescued from obscurity by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte, this spectacular ballet from Marius Petipa is a gem that demands to be discovered by a wider audience.

While traveling in Egypt, Lord Wilson is caught in a sandstorm and finds refuge in the nearest pyramid where Aspicia, the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs, lies entombed. When he falls asleep, lulled by the haze of opium, Aspicia comes to life and his passion for her will take him on a fantastic journey.


French choreographer Pierre Lacotte brilliantly resurrected a forgotten masterpiece exclusively for the Bolshoi Ballet nearly twenty years ago - Marius Petipa’s The Pharaoh’s Daughter.  With its exotic setting, spectacular dancing and scenes choreographed for nearly the entire Bolshoi troupe, this stunning Egyptian fresco is one of the most remarkable productions in the company’s repertoire.
