This Week at Union Films


If you thought last week at Union Films was amazing, you’ll love to see what we have in store this week. Our Back to the Future Trilogy was fantastic, and our volunteers had an absolute blast working and watching the films on the big screen. Ant-Man in 3D proved a hit and Age of Adaline won a place in my heart.

This week we’ve got a a double bill of Marvel, a Halloween All-Nighter and a Tom Cruise Impossible Mission.

Fantastic Four, Tuesday 27th October at 19:00

The reboot to 2005’s Fantastic Four kicks off our lineup on Tuesday at 7pm. With a completely new cast that includes Whiplash‘s Miles Teller and House of Cards‘ Kate Mara as Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman respectively.

When four outsiders teleport to an alternate dimension as part of an experiment, their physical forms are altered completely but after returning to life as we know it, the fantastic four must harness their abilities to fit in with the real world and defeat a new foe.

Make sure you come along on Tuesday night, for the first of a proposed new trilogy involving the Fantastic Four!

Ant-Man, Thursday 29th October at 19:00

3D was awesome but its not for everyone’s taste. Come along to Ant-Man in 2D if you missed it the first time because this time it’ll only cost you £3!

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas star in the final film to Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 2 and we can’t think of a better way to end it.

Halloween All-Nighter, Friday 30th October at 19:00

We’ve gone for a mix of modern and old classics this year hoping to appease those horror fanatics. We think we’ve got the perfect combination after much deliberation.

The Woman in Black, The Shining, The Babadook, Sinister, Oculus and As Above, So Below stand between you and surviving the night of terror at your student cinema. We’ll have a spooky cinema, a themed bar 3 and some suprises through the night.

Join us for a great night of scares. Tickets for the event are only £10 and £8 if you own a pass. For 12 hours of entertainment, its an absolute bargain. Visit now and grab your tickets for our second marathon of the year.

Max, Sunday 1st November at 17:00

Sunday’s usual double bill begins with Max at 5pm!

Bravery on the battlefield is not limited to mankind, man’s best friend can do just the same. Max is a dog used by US Marines in Afghanistan to huge success but is adopted by his handler’s family back home after a tragic event occurs that affects Max to his core.

Make sure you come along for a relaxing Sunday of films!

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Sunday 1st November at 20:00

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol revitalised the M:I franchise for existing fans and gained a lot of new followers when it was released to commercial and critical success in 2011, a whole four years agmission-impossible-rogue-nation-motorcycle-explosion_1920.0o.

Tom Cruise returns in this fifth instalment, along with Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames. If you’re craving
some action then make sure you come along on Sunday night for what is sure to be a busy one. People will want to see Tom Cruise hanging out of a plane (it’s not a big spoiler).

Ethan (Cruise) and his team must tackle “The Syndicate”, a secret organisation that craves the destruction of the IMF. Having seen it myself, I highly suggest coming to watch this movie, the action scenes are incredible and I always like a film with Alec Baldwin in it (anyone else think of Team America just then?).

Tickets for all our films, including our Halloween All-Nighter can be grabbed now from and I suggest you do so because its going to be a busy week.

If we don’t get to see you this week, we wish you a happy Halloween full of scares, sweets, and house parties!
