Films showing from Friday, June 14 to Thursday, June 20.


NEW! Behind The Candelabra (15)

(1h 58m) Fri-Thu: 18:00, 20:50.

Affectionate biopic of flamboyant entertainer Liberace directed by Steven Soderberg and starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, n ot to forget some gloriously over-the-top 60s and 70s costumes and sets.

Critics have hailed both main performances.

NEW! Man of Steel 3D (12A)

(2h 23m) Fri-Thu: 12:20, 13:20, 15:40, 16:40, 19:00, 20:00.

Good grief! How many times can they make a movie of the same story about the same superhero in tight pants? This spectacular new adaptation certainly has a great pedigree, to wit Christopher Nolan and David S Goyer, the team behind The Dark Knight series.

Superman himself is played by a Brit - Henry Cavill with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Michael Shannon as the nefarious General Zod.

The Big Wedding (15)

(1h 29m) Fri-Thu: 19:30.

Desribed as an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco, the cast is certainly good - Diane Keaton, Robert de Niro, Amanda Seyfried, Ben Barnes , Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams.


Star Trek Into Darkness (12A)

(2h 12m) Fri-Thu: 19:30.

Sci-Fi adventure. When the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organisation, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) leads a manhunt to capture a new enemy (Benedict Cumberbatch).
