Gone GirlGone Girl, Tuesday 18th November at 7:00pm

The story of an out of work writer who becomes a suspect in the disappearance of his wife, this critically-acclaimed stylish thriller should probably be on everyone’s watch lists. Be sure to take advantage!


A Farewell to Arms, Wednesday 19th November at 7:30pmA Farewell To Arms

This week’s film in association with the Phoenix is 1932’s A Farewell to Arms, an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s book of the same name.

The semi-autobiographical work tells the story of an American army officer serving with the Italian army during the First World War. This tragic romance has received acclaim for its portrayal of both the love story between its protagonists and the horrors of the war itself.

It’s finally here, the third instalment in the epic Hunger Games series. Our run of 16 showings begins this week at midnight on its day of premiere release giving you every opportunity to enjoy what is sure to be one of this year’s biggest films.

Katniss has destroyed the Hunger Games from the inside becoming the symbol of the 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? Make sure to be a part of what could be our biggest event of the year!

Dracula Untold, Sunday 23rd November at 5:00pmDracula Untold

Dracula Untold is a reimagining of Bram Stoker’s classic work. Starring Luke Evans (Bard, The Hobbit) we revisit the Count’s beginnings as Vlad the Impaler. Taking heavy inspiration from historical events, this alternative take on the lore should be an interesting watch for fans of the genre.
