Poly Parents // Sorry To Bother You

POLY PARENTS: We believe that mums and dads shouldn't have to miss out on great cinema, which is why we are now offering special daytime screenings just for them. Bring your under 3 for free and we'll create a friendly, half-lit and low sound atmosphere to keep them calm while you enjoy the film.

Dir. Boots Riley | USA 2018| 112 min | 15
 
Musician and activist Boots Riley makes an incredible debut with this breathlessly inventive and funny fantastical satire about a black telemarketer who uses his 'white voice' to get a promotion in a horrible corporation.
 
In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius 'Cash' Green (Lakeith Stanfield - Get Out, Atlanta) only excels when he uses his 'white voice' (the super-nasal "yes-indeedy" tones come from comedian David Cross). Soon he's rising through the ranks, but he's essentially selling slavery (re-branded to look like a trendy co-working space) while his friends (including girlfriend Detroit, played by Tessa Thompson, whose supersized earrings deserve their own award) begin to organise and fight for proper working conditions. Then when Cash enters the inner circle of a coke-snorting entrepreneur (Armie Hammer), he discovers a wild and disturbing secret...
 
Filled with colour, arresting visuals, and an unforgettable soundtrack (from Riley's own band The Coup), Sorry To Bother You is a pro-Union rallying cry, an attack on capitalism and greed. Have a nice day at work!
 
Tickets: £7.75 (inc. Poly Fund)

Please note: the screening at 10:30 is the PARENT & BABY showing. There are no concessions available for this screening.
