Monday 7 January 2019   The Children Act Drama (12A) 105 minutes

As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maya (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make at work – should she force a teenage boy, Adam (Fionn Whitehead), to have the blood transfusion that will save his life?

Monday 4 February 2019   King of Thieves Crime/Drama (15) 108 minutes

Not to be confused with last season’s The Hatton Garden Job, but covering the same ground, King of Thieves is the incredible true storey of the spectacular Hatton Garden diamond heist, the biggest and most daring in British history, humorously told through career best performances from a stellar cast which includes Sir Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Tom Courtenay and Charlie Cox.

Monday 4 March 2019  The Wife Drama (15) 100 minutes

After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man’s Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed prolific body of work. His literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950’s. The Wife interweaves the story of the couple’s youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later-a lifetime’s shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.
