The BFG | Saturday 17th Sept  | 6pm

Steven Spielberg’s vision of The BFG could not have come at a more opportune time: this year we celebrate 100 years of Roald Dahl. At the centre of the tale is Sophie, a characterful and curious young girl living in a London orphanage. One night, Sophie is let into an amazing secret: giants exist, and they deliver dreams into children’s bedrooms. Sophie discovers this when she is whisked off to a land of giants, where the BFG teaches her about dreams and protects her from his rather less friendly brothers, including the Bloodbottler and the Fleshlumpeater.

Romeo and Juliet (12A) | Friday 16th September  | 7pm

The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live cinema season continues with a new vision of Shakespeare’s heartbreaking tale of forbidden love. Branagh and his creative team present a modern passionate version of the classic tragedy.

A longstanding feud between Verona’s Montague and Capulet families brings about devastating consequences for two young lovers caught in the conflict.

Reuniting the stars of his celebrated film of Cinderella, Kenneth Branagh directs Richard Madden and Lily James as Romeo and Juliet and Sir Derek Jacobi as Mercutio.

Akira (15) |  Thursday 22 September | 7pm

We are proud to bring you one of the most celebrated animated movies of all time which was voted by Empire readers as one of the top 100 best films ever. AKIRA kick-started the anime business all over the world, opening the doors for everything from Pokémon to Princess Mononoke. Beyond its stunning visuals and kinetic action, its sci-fi plotting and spy-flick style, it’s also an intricate political thriller, with reluctant underclass heroes taking on a corrupt and cynical establishment. Military experiments, government conspiracies and drugged-up bikers dressed as clowns drag the viewer on a thrill ride from here to infinity.
