Last year over 600 films were released in the UK. (That’s a lot, right?) Some of these films are fantastically bombastic, with equally bombastic marketing campaigns to boot. However not all new releases can afford to appear on the side of double-decker buses, and as a result many can pass by unnoticed.
That’s why we have Tuesday Wonders! This is our way of highlighting those hidden gems, films that are exciting, important, sometimes a little bit different, but definitely worth seeing. So keep an eye out for what’s showing here every Tuesday, and don’t forget to pick up a loyalty card too, which gets you in for free for every four that you see.
From Friday 10th April

From modern cinema's wunderkind Xavier Dolan (TOM AT THE FARM, LAURENCE ANYWAYS) comes this heartbreakingly honest story of a single mother raising her tearaway teenage son. Equal parts funny, brutal and uplifting, this is an astounding cinematic experience filled with electrifying performances from its central characters.
DIOR AND I
From Saurday 11th April
FR, 2014, 90mins, 12A
Dior and I brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection as its new artistic director—a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Melding the everyday, pressure- filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand’s past, the film is also a colourful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons’ vision.
From Friday 17th April
SE/FR/NO, 2014, 119mins, 15
This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family—handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children—on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. During a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

Young Lydia, emotionally abandoned by her agoraphobic mum (Peake), becomes fixated on her best friend Abbie. When Lydia’s white magik-obsessed brother and Abbie sleep together, her fragile world begins to unravel and a mysterious delirium takes over the girl’s school that she attends. Carol Morley (DREAMS OF A LIFE) returns to themes of identity, female experience and human connection with this distinctive new film.

DARK HORSE tells the larger than life true story of how a barmaid in a former mining village in South Wales bred a racehorse on her allotment that went on to become a champion.
Jan had successfully bred dogs and birds and believed she could do the same with a different animal – though she knew nothing about racing and had never been on a horse. Convincing a handful of locals to part with ten pound a week she found a thoroughbred mare with a terrible racing record for £300, a stallion past his best, put them together and – against all the odds – bred a winner.
KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK
From Saturday 25th April
US, 2015, 132mins, 15
Experience Kurt Cobain like never before in the first fully authorised portrait of the famed rock music icon. Director Brett Morgen expertly blends Cobain's personal archive of art, music, and never-before-seen home movies with animation and revelatory interviews with his family and closest confidants. Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, Washington, through the height of his fame, a visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist at odds with his surroundings emerges.
FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
From Friday 1st May
US/UK, 2015, 119mins, 12A
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
X + Y
From Saturday 2nd May
UK, 2014, 111mins, 15
Nathan is a shy schoolboy on the autistic spectrum, gifted at maths but socially awkward. Both Nathan and his mother are still reeling from the sudden death of his father. When Nathan gets the opportunity to travel to Taiwan and compete in a junior maths contest, he must confront two new scenarios: mixing with other kids far from home, and not always being the smartest person in the room.
X+Y is a simple, subtle and quietly uplifting watch, celebrating diversity and encouraging tolerance – whether for different cultures or for different minds.

BYOBaby screenings are a chance for the parents and carers of babies up to 12 months old, to get to the cinema without leaving the little one at home. With raised lighting levels, reduced volume and baby changing/bottle warming facilities, we aim to make these screenings as comfortable for you as possible.
Tickets are £5.50, which includes a free tea or coffee. If you want to come down early and catch up with friends, doors open at 10.30am and the film starts around 11.15am.
Due to limited space, we advise people to bring babies in slings or car-seats where possible. Numbers are limited for BYOB showings, so it is advisable to book in advance, particularly for the more well known films.
To join the BYOB mailing list, please email: email@example.com or call 0113 275 2045 to speak to a member of staff.
