What’s On

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.

28 Jun–29 Jun: Wed & Thu 3.50pm, 6.30pm & 9.10pm

US soldier Nick Morton (Cruise) is collecting artefacts in the Middle East when he accidentally releases the murderous, mummified Ahmanet (Boutella). Boutella’s much the best thing in this first of Universal’s monster movie revamp series, Dark Universe. Based on this turgid and not at all scary effort, more like Dull Universe.

26 Jun–29 Jun: Mon & Tue 3.30pm, 6.10pm & 8.50pm; Wed 2pm & 4.30pm; Thu 6.10pm & 8.50pm

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it manages to stay afloat.

World-famous tenor Jonas Kaufmann makes his role debut as Otello in Verdi's passionate retelling of Shakespeare's great tragedy of jealousy, deception and murder.

It turns out that the Transformers shape human history, as Oxford lecturer Viviane (Haddock), butch inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and an English Earl (Hopkins) charge about from action sequence to action sequence. Wahlberg and Haddock have zero chemistry and it’s a deadening pile-up of CGI carnage, grating quips and joyless pummelling.

26 Jun–29 Jun: Mon–Thu 1.50pm, 4.10pm & 7.30pm

26 Jun–29 Jun: (3D) Mon–Thu 5.10pm & 8.30pm

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.

26 Jun–29 Jun: Mon–Thu 2.10pm, 5.15pm & 8.20pm
