Union Films: What’s Coming Up This Week (02/12/2014 – 07/12/2014)


November was a pretty incredible month at Union Films, a midnight screening and 13 other showings of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I, and we are not ready to let you down in December either. We have a great lineup of films coming you way this week.

Joe, Tuesday 2nd December at 7:00pmjoe

David Gordon Green, the man behind laugh out loud comedy Pineapple Express, helps us kick off December with something different, the critically acclaimed drama Joe.

Played by Nicholas Cage, Joe goes from ex convict to an unlikely role model when a 15 year old boy, played by Tye Sheridan, faces an impossible decision between redemption and ruin.

We brought you seven showings last week but we still aren’t done! We bring you three final showings of the worldwide phenomenon The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday! 

Katniss has destroyed the Hunger Games from the inside, becoming a symbol of resistance – the Mockingjay. However, the Capitol is desperate to crush this rebellion completely and to end those inciting it. Can Katniss and the survivors of District 12 succeed where so many have failed?

Get your tickets while you still have the chance to see it at your student cinema, £4 tickets, an amazing selection of cheap refreshments, what’s your excuse?

Goodbye Hunger Games, until next year!

As always, the Phoenix continue the week of brilliant films on Wednesday night, with French Language christmas drama Joyeux Noel, conveniently translated into English as Merry Christmas.

From the eyes of six different soldiers fighting for three different countries in the bitter trenches, Joyeux Noel depicts the true beauty of the truce between belligerent forces at Christmas time during World War 1. Did you like the Sainsbury’s christmas advertisement? You’ll like this more.

On Thursday night we are throwing you back to the days where a Harry Potter movie was all you waited for to come out at the cinema. What’s best is we are showing Harry’s final chapters back to back, and best of all? They are both FREE!

With all odds against him, Harry, along with Ron and Hermione set out on their final quest to destroy the horcruxes and rid the muggle and wizarding worlds of Voldemort once and for all.
