The Phantom of the Open

***This film starts at an earlier time of 7.30pm***

The Phantom of the Open (12a)

The film is based on the strange, but true story of Maurice Flitcroft (played by Mark Rylance), a Barrow-in-Furness shipyard worker and amateur golfer who took up the sport in middle-age.

Flitcroft practised on the beach, and became known for cheekily entering the British Open golf championship in 1976 as a self-declared professional, thus circumventing the handicap requirement for amateurs.

He found himself competing with the likes of Seve Ballesteros, but chaotically chalked up the worst score in the tournament’s history, to the spluttering rage of the puce-faced gentlemen in charge.

They tried to ban him but he kept on gate-crashing competitions with wacky disguises and fake names!

Sally Hawkins plays his long-suffering and affectionate wife; and Rhys Ifans plays the pop-eyed, pompous club secretary.

This film is uplifting, but grounded by sensible messaging about being aware of your limitations while pursuing your dreams!

Running time is 1 hour 46 minutes

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

***This film starts at an earlier time of 7.30pm***

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (12a)

The extraordinary true story of eccentric British artist Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose playful, sometimes even psychedelic pictures helped to transform the public's perception of cats forever.

Narrated by Olivia Colman, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain tells the story of the Victorian-era artist whose widely published drawings of anthropomorphised cats transformed them from mysterious to irresistible and in turn supports his widowed mother and five younger sisters.

His skilled and speedy portraiture impresses, but his often stormy view of the world, and those in, it keeps him from engaging much with society. That is, until he hires a kind, curious governess for his youngest sisters, Emily Richardson (Claire Foy), who illuminates his life in a way even he’d never imagined.

Love blooms across the class divide — albeit to the chagrin of Louis’s stern sister Caroline (Andrea Riseborough), second oldest and second in command.

Running time is 1 hour 51 minutes

Parallel Mothers

Parallel Mothers (15)

Two women, a generation apart, find themselves inextricably linked by their brief time together in a maternity ward.

The circumstances that brought them to the Madrid hospital are quite different—one accidental, the other traumatic—and a secret, hiding the truth of the bond that connects these two, is a powerful story that tackles a deep trauma in Spanish history. 

Penélope Cruz's Janis is a uniquely complex, flawed, but ultimately alluring lead character, who finds herself in a morally and emotionally treacherous situation.

She's viewed in contrast with Ana, radiantly portrayed by newcomer Milena Smit, a discovery who brings a palpable innocence, pain, and longing to this interwoven portrait of women and motherhood.

Film shown in Spanish with English subtitles

Top Gun Maverick

Top Gun Maverick

***This film starts at an earlier time of 7.30pm***

Top Gun : Maverick (12a)

This is the long-awaited ‘follow-up’ to the original Top Gun film. Tom Cruise returns as Maverick, with the jacket, the bike(s), the aviator shades and (most importantly) the “need for speed” that made him a hit in 1986.

He also still has the rebellious streak that has prevented him rising above the level of captain! At the start of the film, Maverick is recalled to his old ‘Top Gun stomping ground’ to train a new generation of aviators (including the son of his friend Goose, who died in the first film), who have assembled for a deadly mission: to neutralise a uranium enrichment plant.

This is adrenaline-pumping, edge of your seat action, and the dog fights were real not computer-generated imagery (CGI), as the actors had to train to fly the jets! It also stars Ed Harris as a forward-looking rear admiral, nicknamed the ‘Drone Ranger’.

Running time is 2 hours 11 minutes
