Eye in the Sky (15)


Daily at 7.45pm except Tuesday 2.15pm only
Also Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May at 5.00pm



Dir. Gavin Hood, USA, 102 mins

Starring Helen Mirren, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Akbi and Aaron Paul

Eye in the Sky stars Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman (sadly in his final screen role) as UK military top brass trying to convince their political masters in London and Washington to allow them to activate a UK-led top secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya. Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel (supplied in fearsomely tense scenes by Captain Philips Barkhad Akbi), Powell discovers her targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from "capture" to "kill." Just as the drone pilot (Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, at the highest levels of government, over the moral, political, and personal implications of modern warfare. Eye in the Sky brilliantly captures the personal cost of the War on Terror for civilians, politicians and military alike while delivering a razor sharp edge-of-your-seat thriller.

Florence Foster Jenkins (PG)

Friday 6th to Thursday 19th May

Daily at 5.15pm & 8.15pm
Except Tuesdays 2.15pm & 5.15pm


 
Directed by Stephen Frears, UK, 110 mins

Starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg

British director Stephen Frears (The Queen and Philomena) delivers another pitch perfect joyous piece of escapism based on an amazing true story.  This biopic of 1940s New York heiress Florence Foster Jenkins, played here with touching vim and immaculate comic timing by the inimitable Meryl Streep, is at once heartwarming, hilarious and moving.

In the utterly deluded belief that she is one of the world’s great opera singers, Florence decides to hire out Carnegie Hall to display her talent. Much to the alarm of St Clair, her Mr. Fix-it husband played brilliantly by Hugh Grant, whose comfortable life rests on his rich wife’s happy equilibrium being maintained, Florence decides to give away hundreds of tickets to the American forces who are just entering WWII. Desperate to save her from public humiliation, Hugh Grant pulls every trick in the book to line the capacious world famous Carnegie Hall with friendly faces. But best laid plans rarely work out just as intended either in the movies or real life. No-one quite has the courage, or heart, to tell Florence the truth about her awful voice, but maybe, just maybe, things will find a way to work out for everyone…
