Parent & Baby screening: Pain and Glory (Dolor y Gloria)

PARENT & BABY SCREENINGS: 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 - now every Tuesday. Please note that this week's film is at 10:30 instead of 12:30. 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. Pedro Almodóvar | Spain 2019 | 113 mins | 15 | Subtitles

Pedro Almodóvar returns with a soulful semi-autobiographical story about an ageing film director reflecting on his personal and professional past.

Antonio Banderas (who picked up the Best Actor prize at Cannes for his brilliant work) stars as Salvador Mallo, a film director with a fading career and growing list of aches, pains and ailments. A planned retrospective causes him to remember his past (his childhood with his mother, played by Penelope Cruz, his first love affair in 80s Madrid, his discovery of cinema and career success) and reunite with a former leading man - with unexpected consequences...

A film about connecting with the past (and all the pain and glory that entails), Almodóvar reflects on desire, creativity, addiction and cinema itself - and it's a joy to behold.

All tickets £6.00 (inc. a free tea or coffee from our bar)
