The Danish Girl (15)Films1024_131637k

Monday 29 February 4.30pm & 7.30pm

Alicia Vikander, Eddie Redmayne, Tusse Silberg, Adrian Schiller

The Danish Girl is a tale of identity and love, inspired by the real-life love story of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe and her wife Gerda Wegener, whilst taking a poignant look at a marriage between two like-minded souls who had to let each other go.

Limited availability

Please note the 7.30pm screening is sold out.

In the Heart of the Sea 3D (12A)

Tuesday 1 March 7.30pm

Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. The film reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

Shown in 3D

Carol (15)

Wednesday 2 March 4.30pm & 7.30pm

Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Kyle Chandler, Sarah Paulson

Based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt, Carol follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change.

Limited availability

Smash It Up!

Thursday 3 March 7.30pm
Smash It Up is an exhibition, a performance lecture, a dance theatre show with documentary and short film. Smash It Up has become a campaign, a series of public performances, a residency in waiting. Smash It Up is a labour of love. A destructive plea for some cultural conservationism… perhaps an ode to the misunderstood, underrated artist. It is a challenging and uncomfortable demand for equality, for hope and for greater creative freedom and beyond all for an understanding and nurturing of the creative imagination.

Age recommendation 14+

NT Live – Hangmen (15)

Friday 4 March 7pm
In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they’ve abolished hanging?

Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.
