Minions: The Rise Of Gru (U)

Minions: The Rise Of Gru

In the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru (Oscar® nominee Steve Carell) is growing up in the suburbs. A fanboy of a supervillain supergroup known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets some mayhem-making backup from his loyal followers, the Minions. Together, Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto--a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please--deploy their skills as they and Gru build their first lair, experiment with their first weapons and pull off their first missions. When the Vicious 6 oust their leader, legendary fighter Wild Knuckles (Oscar® winner Alan Arkin), Gru interviews to become their newest member. It doesn't go well (to say the least), and only gets worse after Gru outsmarts them and suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. On the run, Gru will turn to an unlikely source for guidance, Wild Knuckles himself, and discover that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

The Bad Guys

In the new action comedy from DreamWorks Animation, based on the New York Times best-selling book series, a crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet--becoming model citizens. Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys--dashing pickpocket Mr. Wolf (Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), seen-it-all safecracker Mr. Snake (Marc Maron, GLOW), chill master-of-disguise Mr. Shark (Craig Robinson, Hot Tub Time Machine franchise), short-fused "muscle" Mr. Piranha (Anthony Ramos, In the Heights) and sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms. Tarantula (Awkwafina, Crazy Rich Asians), aka "Webs." But when, after years of countless heists and being the world's most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr. Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good. Under the tutelage of their mentor Professor Marmalade (Richard Ayoade, Paddington 2), an arrogant (but adorable!) guinea pig, The Bad Guys set out to fool the world that they've been transformed. Along the way, though, Mr. Wolf begins to suspect that doing good for real may give him what he’s always secretly longed for: acceptance. So when a new villain threatens the city, can Mr. Wolf persuade the rest of the gang to become... The Good Guys?

MANIFESTO + live Q&A with Labour MP Nadia Whittome (15)

MANIFESTO + live Q&A with Labour MP Nadia Whittome

Labour MP Nadia Whittome will be doing a live Q&A after the film.


MANIFESTO follows ac-tivists in the safest Labour seat in the country in Liverpool as they campaign for change. The film is directed, written, and produced by acclaimed documentary maker Daniel Draper (Nature of the Beast, The Big Meeting, Almost Liverpool 8). Since receiving a nomination for Best Film and Special Jury Prize at Sheffield Intl Documentary Festival 2021 for Almost Liverpool 8, Draper has continued his exploration of his working-class identity and the constituency he once called home with MANI-FESTO.


The film features a cross section of politicians and activists in its study of the push for social change – including Dan Carden MP, Ian Byrne MP, and Alan Gibbons. The film is produced and edited by Christie Allanson, a Grierson Trust DocLab: Editing alumni.


MANIFESTO is a feature-length documentary about Walton Constituency Labour Party; the safest Labour seat in the country. Filmed over the course of three years by filmmakers who hail from the city, MANIFESTO captures the peaks and troughs of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party from the coalface and gives a vital voice to a working-class community, in both politics and film. Education, the NHS, Brexit, economics, the environment, workers’ rights and more are on the agenda as Walton CLP passionately campaign for change through Labour’s ‘For The Many’ manifesto.  


Produced by Shut Out The Light Films, MANIFESTO is described as the final instalment of the Hope Trilogy (along with Nature of the Beast and The Big Meeting) in a series of films depicting the Labour movement over the last six years. It is a hopeful film about community activists who believe in collective action, effecting society from the bottom up. Shadowing the CLP members to meetings and protests, the hand-held approach to the film paints an unwavering picture of the hard work of the activists as they campaign on streets and picket lines.


MANIFESTO captures the under-represented facet of party politics at a vital time in British political history. The documentary gives a first-hand account of grassroots community activism, depicting the work and effort that goes into party politics away from Westminster.

So what will become of Marion Crane... and what secrets is Norman hiding?


With iconic performances, one of the most famous scenes in horror history, and an unforgettable Bernard Herrmann score, Psycho is the murder-mystery masterpiece not to be missed on the big screen.

The Sleeping Beauty ROH 22-23 Season (12A LIVE)

The Sleeping Beauty ROH 22-23 Season

The Sleeping Beauty holds a very special place in The Royal Ballet’s heart and history. It was the first performance given by the Company when the Royal Opera House reopened at Covent Garden in 1946 after World War II. In 2006, this original staging was revived and has been delighting audiences ever since. Frederick Ashton famously cited the pure classicism of Marius Petipa’s 19th-century ballet as a private lesson in the atmospheric art and craft of choreography. Be swept away by Tchaikovsky’s ravishing music and Oliver Messel’s sumptuous fairytale designs with this true gem from the classical ballet repertory.
