This Week At Union Films


If you missed us last week, it was a pretty busy period. First we kicked off the season with  Pitch Perfect 2, then kicked off the Phoenix season with Samba on Wednesday, and finally we showed the latest Avengers adventure on Thursday after we got to meet all of those interested in joining Union Films for the coming year at our get involved event. If you’re still interested in helping run your student cinema, just visit our Facebook Group, say you’re interested and we’ll have you up and running in no time!

If you didn’t catch the news on Thursday night, we will be showing the epic conclusion to the Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 before any other cinema in the region, starting on the 19th November!

Anyway onto this week.

Inside Out, Tuesday 6th October at 19:00

inside-out-short-riley-first-date-image-emotionsInside out kicks off the week on Tuesday, and Pixar’s 15th film is a gem, just as good as the classics of years prior such as Toy Story, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo and Up.

It tells the story of Riley, an eleven year old girl who loves life in Minnesota, has a talent for ice hockey and has an amazing group of friends. But when she is uprooted to the unfamiliar city of San Francisco her inner emotions Joy, Disgust, Fear, Anger and Sadness have to deal with the consequences.

Brace yourselves for some laughs, and some tears when you come along on Tuesday. Tickets will be the usual bargain of £3

Charlie’s Country, Wednesday 7th October at 19:30

Having watched Samba, the Phoenix’s offering last week, I have really come to appreciate films from around the world a lot more than I used to.

This week’s offering is Charlie’s Country which tells the story of an Aboriginal man who feels out of place in post Aboriginal Australia, and sets out from his community to live the way he wants to. Phoenix offerings are always an excellent way to relax half way through a stressful week of lectures.

Jurassic World, Sunday 11th October at 17:00

Loved the original Jurassic Park? You are in for a treat here as Chrijurassic-world-chris-pratt-bryce-dallas-howard-nick-robinsons Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard star in Jurassic World, a brilliant new entry to a franchise that people thought had run dry after 2001’s Jurassic Park III.

In a world where executives think the dinosaurs at the theme park Jurassic World are no longer a sufficient attraction to bring in customers (because dinosaurs are uncool right?), they begin experimenting with genetically modified dinosaurs. When the newly created dinosaur causes fear and destruction on an unprecedented scale, its up to Owen Grady (also known as Star Lord to Guardians of the Galaxy fans) to save Jurassic World from the same fate as previous parks.

It’s a beautiful movie that you should not miss. Better be quick on tickets though and visit the box office – people like dinosaurs after all.

San Andreas, Sunday 11th October at 20:00

Dwayne Johnson stars in our headliner at 8pm on Sunday, also starring earthquakes, and helicopters. It is a Dwayne Johnson film after all.

When a devastating earthquake hits the state of California, Ray (Dwayne Johnson) must make the perilous trip across the aftermath to save his daughter from a terrible fate.

Make sure you join us for a fantastic week of films!
