What’s On

  • Ad Astra

    In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

  • Downton Abbey

    21 Sep–26 Sep: Mon–Thu noon, 2pm, 5pm & 8pm; Sat & Sun 11am, 2pm, 5pm & 8pm

  • Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans

    A story of Celtic tribes, led by queen Boudicca (Nash), uniting against their Roman overlords. The trademark puerile humour and comedy songs are all there, and it’s jam-packed with appearances from much-loved comedians; if its overriding silliness doesn’t measure up to Life of Brian or Blackadder, it has ramshackle charm.

    21 Sep–22 Sep: (Kids) Sat & Sun 10am

  • Hustlers

    Destiny (Wu) and Ramona (Lopez) are strippers who, with their friends, devise a way of getting more cash out of their clients. Wu gives a sophisticated performance and her dynamic with Lopez pops with convincing intensity, making for a raucous crime story that’s by turns gorgeous, funny and surprisingly moving.

    21 Sep–26 Sep: Mon–Wed 3pm, 5.45pm & 8.20pm; Thu 2.40pm & 5.15pm; Sat & Sun 12.20pm, 3pm, 5.45pm & 8.20pm

  • It Chapter Two

    Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

    21 Sep–26 Sep: Mon–Wed 12.30pm, 4pm & 7.45pm; Thu noon, 3.20pm & 7.45pm; Sat & Sun 12.30pm, 4pm & 7.45pm

  • The Lion King

    The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

    21 Sep–22 Sep: Sat & Sun 10.45am

  • NT Live: One Man, Two Guvnors

    English version of Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy.

    26 Sep: Thu 7pm

  • Rambo: Last Blood

    Rambo (Stallone) heads to Mexico to rescue his teenage niece (Monreal) from the cartels. Stallone is even more mumbly incoherent than he was in previous movies. Grunberg delivers a deluge of brutal death and torture scenes, the film’s depiction of Mexicans is frankly Trumpian, and Rambo himself unwittingly comes across as the worst monster of all.

    21 Sep–26 Sep: Mon–Thu, Sat & Sun 1.30pm, 3.45pm, 6.15pm & 8.30pm

  • Toy Story 4

    Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

    21 Sep–22 Sep: (Kids) Sat & Sun 10am
