A Walk in the Woods (15)

Robert Redford, Nick Nolte and Emma Thompson star in Ken Kwapis' (The US Office and Parks and Recreation) delightfully funny adaptation of Bill Bryson's international bestseller. Deciding to hike the notoriously tough Appalachian trail, Bryson (Redford) invites old pal Katz (Nolte), who turns up wheezing and overweight for a trip involving high altitudes, hardy terrain and... bears. Using their journey as a metaphor for the uncertainty of old age, with majestic footage of rural America, it's a hilarious, touching film with very enjoyable comic turns from Redford, Nolte, Emma Thompson (as Bryson’s wife), Nick Offerman and Kristen Schaal.

Cold Comfort Farm (PG)

When sensible, sophisticated Flora Poste is orphaned at nineteen, she decides her only choice is to descend upon relatives in deepest Sussex, the Starkadders at Cold Comfort Farm. Far from the refinement of 1930s London, the decidedly odd family are in need of organising, so who better than Flora to do it!

Grease (PG)

A musical about teens in love in the 50's! It's California 1959 and Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson are enjoying a summer romance. When the holidays end and they go back to school, what neither of them knows is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny's the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black leather jacket-wearing greasers while good-girl Sandy falls in with the Pink Ladies. When they clash at Rydell's first pep rally, Danny isn't the same Danny from the beach. But, hopelessly devoted, they both try to be like each other so they can be together!

Knives Out (12a)

When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death.

Mr. Turner (12a)

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Mrs Lowry & Son (PG)

Beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her. By turns hilarious, brutal and tender, and featuring yet another tremendous performance from Timothy Spall, this has an appealing old-school charm. Often sad and unsettling, this is also livelier and less oppressive than it may sound thanks to the fine writing, deft direction, and the superb, if painful interplay between Redgrave and Spall. “An entertaining showcase for two first-class performers.” Guardia

Snow Falling on Cedars (15)

A murder trial has upset the quiet community of San Piedro, and now this tranquil village has become the centre of controversy. For Ishmail Chambers, a local reporter, the trial strikes a deep emotional chord when he finds his ex-lover is linked to the case. As he investigates the killing, he uncovers some startling clues that lead him to a shocking discovery.

Summerland (12)

While World War II rages across the channel, reclusive writer Alice lives a solitary life on the seaside cliffs of Southern England. Her life’s work is using science to discredit myths and magic. One day, she opens her front door to find she has been assigned a young London evacuee named Frank to look after. Initially resistant, Alice is gradually won over by Frank’s innocent curiosity and the two realise they have more in common than she had assumed. As the painful past opens up a brighter future, this tells an intensely emotional story of love's endurance in trying times.

The Goonies (12a)

Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner and Chris Columbus collaborate to create an epic children's adventure of subterranean caverns, sunken galleons and a fortune in lost pirate treasure waiting to be found by a group of friends known as the Goonies. With brothers Mikey and Brand's house slated for demolition by greedy land developers, the boys decide their only hope lies in finding a long-lost treasure. They uncover a treasure map and with their friends descend to a subterranean sea and an abandoned galleon in this fun-filled, fast-paced adventure.

The Navigator (U)

Rollo decides to marry his sweetheart Betsy and sail to Honolulu. When she rejects him he decides to go alone but boards the wrong ship, the "Navigator" owned by Betsy's father. Unaware of this, Betsy boards the ship to look for her father, whom spies capture before cutting the ship loose. It drifts out to sea with the two socialites each unaware of there being anyone else on board.
