Our July program starts with Evolution, a fascinating sci-fi / horror / mystery filmed on the otherworldly terrain of Lanzarote. Strong audience demand (thank you, as always!) for Florence Foster Jenkins mean that we’re providing two extra screenings – one in the afternoon, and another for our Babes in Arms audience. Some popular actors are on their summer travels – Tom Hanks to Saudi Arabia in A Hologram for the King, Juliet Stephenson to rural France for Departure, and Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris to Marrakech for the John Le Carré adaptation Our Kind of Traitor. For our own summer holiday season – although with considerable appeal to adult audiences too – When Marnie Was There is a gently moving animation that may be the final ever release from the beloved Studio Ghibli. Travelling back in time, Jane Austen’s early novella Lady Susan is the basis for the acclaimed and hilarious Love and Friendship, while a more recent period comedy is the joyous 1980s musical Sing Street. This month’s program also celebrates two contemporary mavericks: a world champion cyclist and inventor is the subject of our annual Tour de France rest-day screening, Battle Mountain: Graeme Obree’s Story, while director Terrence Malick edits together mighty performances from an A-list cast (Bale, Blanchett, Portman) and breathtaking shots of the California landscape to form the fragmented yet beautiful dream that is Knight of Cups.
