PhilomenaThursday, April 17, 2014 - 8:30pm
Philomena focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock - something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of - and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith, a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
‘A moving and exhilarating film, and the strange chemistry between Dench and Coogan ferments into a 120-degree proof emotional drama.’ – The Guardian

Omid Djalili - Live! (SOLD OUT)Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 9:00pm
He’s back on tour with a splash, following a sell-out four week West-End residency and a sold-out season at the Edinburgh Festival.
A firm favourite with his legendary performances, Omid’s stand-up awards include; ’Time Out Award’ - for Best Stand Up, the ‘EMMA Award’ and was a ‘South Bank Award' nominee as well as being a ‘Perrier Award’ nominee.
Omid was the winner of the "Best Actor" Award for his lead performance in The Infidel at the Turin Film Festival (won the previous year by Bill Murray). The Infidel also picked up a Loaded LAFTA award for "Funniest film" and Omid was short listed for "Peter Sellers Award" at the ‘London Evening Standard British Film Awards’.
"Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around" (Guardian).
"To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person's Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both" (Sunday Times).

Blue Is The Warmest ColourThursday, April 24, 2014 - 8:30pm
Adèle Exarchopoulos is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche's movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation that pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation. It is a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life.
‘Fearless, relatable and beautiful, this is one of the year's best. Holding you so close for so long, you won't want to break free.’ – Total Film
‘Anchored by two of the most natural, committed performances you'll ever see, Blue Is The Warmest Colour is the most moving love story of the year.’ – EmpireVenue:Rhodes Centre
