If Beale Street Could Talk
Barry Jenkins | USA | 2018 | 119m | 15

Beautiful BoyDirector Jenkins follows up his award winning ‘Moonlight’ with a truly superb love story based on the novel by James Baldwin. In early 1970s Harlem, wife-to-be Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Fonny. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together, but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.

How this wasn't nominated in the Best Film category at this year's BAFTA Awards we just don't know. In our view, a far, far better film than 'Moonlight'.

Screening as part of the Monday Night Film Club. The film will be preceded by a short intro and all are welcome to stay on for the post-film discussion, complimentary tea and coffee will be made available.

Bohemian Rhapsody SING-ALONG VERSION
Bryan Singer | UK/USA | 2018 | 134m | 12A

Beautiful Boy

Come and see the hit sensation of 2018 in its Sing-Along version with lyrics of Queen's legendary songs flashed on screen.

Our projectionist Alex Murray (who's worked at the cinema since 1987) said he never experienced an evening like the previous Sing-Along in January of this year. The majority of customers were up dancing, waving their arms for the live scenes, stomping their feet and clapping their hands to 'We Will Rock You', and, of course, singing along! All in all it was a great night. One we thought couldn't be repeated...until now!
Bohemian Rhapsody is an enthralling celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (a superb Rami Malek), who defied stereotypes and convention to become one of history’s most beloved entertainers. 

Contains moderate sex references, drug references, infrequent strong language.

A Private War
Matthew Heineman | USA/UK | 2018 | 110m | 15

Beautiful Boy

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she has witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her - along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) - to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

"A portrait of a deeply complex, flawed, but brilliant and forceful woman.", Vulture

The Vanishing
Kristoffer Nyholm | UK | 2018 | 101m | 15

Beautiful Boy

Gerard Butler and Peter Mullan star in this tense, action-packed thriller based on true events of the Flannan Isles mystery of 1900. After three lighthouse keepers arrive for work on a remote Scottish isle, they make a fateful discovery: a wrecked rowboat—with a chest full of gold. As a mysterious boat heads toward the island, the three men make a choice that will change their lives forever, ensnaring them in a web of greed, paranoia, and murder. 

 

'The Vanishing' (formerly known as 'Keepers') was partly filmed in Dumfries & Galloway in 2017. Filming took place at three lighthouses - Killantringan, Mull of Galloway and Corsewall - as well as Port Logan.
