    12 Dec: Sun 11.40am

    7 Dec–9 Dec: Tue–Thu 4.30pm & 8pm

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

    The seventh installment of the wildly popular wizard franchise is an atmospheric but emotionally hollow and rather rushed take on Rowling’s original, with a strong performance from ever-dependable Grint but little else to recommend it other than as an appetiser for next summer’s grand finale.

    12 Dec: Sun 3pm

  • Clifford The Big Red Dog

    A young girl’s love for a tiny puppy makes it grow to an enormous size.

    10 Dec–16 Dec: Fri 1pm, 3.30pm & 6pm; Sat & Sun 10.30am, 1pm, 3.30pm & 6pm; Mon & Tue 1pm, 3.30pm & 6pm; Wed & Thu 12.30pm & 4.30pm

  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    While the sixth installment in the Harry Potter franchise does venture into darker, more adult areas than its predecessors it also injects more humour and character development than previous encounters, which doesn’t always make for a satisfying concoction. Yates picks up in the aftermath of a spectacular attack on London by Death Eaters and builds towards the death of a key character that will pre-empt the final confrontation between Harry and Lord Voldemort in two-part finale, The Deathly Hallows.

    11 Dec: Sat 2.50pm

  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    With Harry’s fifth return to Hogwarts comes the realisation that Voldemort’s return to power is not the only factor that will trouble him and he is forced to confront a different force that matches his growing pains. Rowling’s most complex and uneven book has proven to be the most difficult to adapt. Missing the talents of a big name director this still contains some enjoyable moments courtesy of newcomer Imelda Staunton, playing the latest Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Sadly exposition over action is this film’s real undoing.

    11 Dec: Sat 11.40am

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Another instalment for the ever popular Ghostbusters franchise. This is a sequel to the first two films and is directed by Jason Reitman, son of their director, Ivan Reitman.

    10 Dec–14 Dec: Mon, Tue & Fri 3.45pm; Sat & Sun 10.15am, noon & 2.40pm

  • Elf

    Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

    14 Dec: Tue 7.30pm
