TESTAMENT OF YOUTH (M) 130min
pAmidst the dark realities of World War 1, Vera falls deeply in love with Roland, who is serving on the front. To feel closer to Roland, Vera chooses to postpone her studies at Oxford University to serve as a nurse, and witnesses first-hand the annihilation of a generation of men. Bringing to life the celebrated memoirs of Vera Brittain, a daring British writer who documented the harsh experiences of being a woman during the war, this is a searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of oblivion and back again. Dir James Kent, UK. May 22, 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31

 

A ROYAL NIGHT OUT (M) 100min
pOn VE Day, May 8 1945, across the world people celebrated the official end of World War II in Europe. London was overflowing with celebration and excess. It is known that on that night, two real-life princesses; Elizabeth and Margaret Windsor, aged 19 and 14; slipped out of the palace to join the communal euphoria and went dancing at the Ritz. They apparently returned to Buckingham Palace just after midnight. This is a delightful and romantic ‘what-if’ story about the adventures the pair might have had on that perfect, joyous night that brought the whole of London together. Dir Julian Jarrold , UK. May 29, 31, June 1, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13

 

CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA (MA) 115min
pAt the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to return to the play that made her career. This time taking on the role of an older woman driven to suicide – rather than the young starlet – the performance is reflective of her own life, with a new young starlet moving into the role she once possessed. Chloe Grace Moretz plays the precocious young actress that acts as a mirror into Enders’ own youth, with Kristen Stewart impressing as Enders’ assistant, her relationship with whom is slightly ambiguous. A beautiful and emotionally engaging drama set to the backdrop of Sils Maria, Switzerland. Dir Olivier Assayas, France. English language. June 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, 15

 
DIRECT FROM THE 2015 SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL

SLOW WEST (M) 84min
pSet at the end of the 19th Century, this is an American western filtered through the eyes of European filmmaking. 17 year old Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) has travelled from Scotland to Colorado to be reunited with the woman with whom he is infatuated. He is quickly confronted by the dangers of the frontier and so teams up with a mysterious traveller named Silas (Michael Fassbender), who agrees to protect him for cash. Jay comes to realise that America is not easy on the innocent. Direct from its Australian premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, it features great performances, is extremely humorous and drenched in unforgettable imagery. Dir John Maclean, UK / New Zealand. June 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14

 

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (2D) (MA) 120min
pIn this fourth outing in the Mad Max film series, it’s been 45 years since the collapse of civilization, and resources such as water, food and oil are scarce. Survivors cling to life at the Citadel, a fortress controlled by the tyrannical Immortan Joe. When Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads a band of rebels on a daring escape through the Wasteland, she forges an alliance with haunted loner Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy). Together, they embark on a high-speed race through the desert, pursued relentlessly by the gangs of the apocalypse. Wild, unrelenting, but also laced with poetry and hints of humour. Brace yourself. Dir George Miller, Australia / USA. June 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 21, 22

 

WOMAN IN GOLD (M) 109 min
pThe incredible true story of Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), a Jewish refugee who is forced to flee Vienna during World War II. Decades later, determined to salvage some dignity from her past, Maria has taken on a mission to reclaim a painting the Nazis stole from her family: the famous Lady In Gold, a portrait of her beloved Aunt Adele painted by Gustav Klimt. The only problem is the portrait in now the crown jewel in one of Vienna’s most respected galleries and is considered an Austrian national treasure. Partnering with an inexperienced but determined young lawyer, Maria embarks on an epic journey for justice 60 years in the making. Dir Simon Curtis, USA/UK. June 19, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29

 
DIRECT FROM THE 2015 SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL

STRANGERLAND (CTC) 112min
pNew to the remote Australian desert town of Nathgari, the Parker family is thrown into crisis when Catherine (Nicole Kidman in one of her strongest performances) and Matthew (Joseph Fiennes) discover that their two teenage kids, Tommy and Lily, have mysteriously disappeared just before a massive dust storm hits the town. The locals join the search led by local cop David Rae (Hugo Weaving). With temperatures rising, and hope plummeting with each passing day, Catherine and Matthew find themselves pushed to the brink. Part thriller, part psychological drama, Strangerland erupts with talent and confident storytelling. Dir Kim Farrant, Australia. June 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28

 
SCHOOL HOLIDAY FAMILY FILM!

SHAUN THE SHEEP (G) 85min
pSWhen Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home. Smart, funny, big-hearted, endlessly inventive and quintessentially British, this timeless, stop-motion adventure is a shear delight for the whole family, from start to finish. Dirs Mark Burton & Richard Starzak, UK. June 20, 28, 29

 
Screening the last weekend of the school holidays... (times TBC)

INSIDE OUT (CTC) 102min
pAs young Riley and her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – struggle to navigate a new city, house and school, turmoil ensues in Headquarters; the control centre inside Riley’s mind, where her emotions reside and help advise her through everyday life. Arguably one of Pixar’s best features, this utterly magical coming-of-age story has a beautiful message for everyone. Dirs Pete Docte & Ronalda Del Carmen, USA. Screening July 9 – 12 (times TBC)
