Based on his own 2013 short and featuring some of the same cast, writer-director Damien Chazelle’s second theatrical feature centres on the relationship between Andrew (Teller, DIVERGENT), an aspiring jazz drummer, and Fletcher, his ultra-demanding teacher (J. K. Simmons, SPIDER-MAN, Oz).
Driven almost to nervous and physical breakdown by Fletcher’s bullying, Andrew sacrifices everything, including his budding relationship with fellow student Nicole (Benoist), for his chance of greatness.

BYOB screenings give parents and carers the opportunity to enjoy the latest releases in a baby-friendly environment. We welcome babies up to 12 months. Screenings are £4.60 and baby goes free, plus a free tea or coffee for the grown-ups. Due to limited space, we prefer babies to be brought, where possible, in slings or car seats.
We open the doors half an hour early if you want to come earlier to catch up with friends, and the film will normally start around 15 minutes after the advertised time. Advance purchase is advisable for certain titles - please speak with a member of staff if you are unsure.
