Nae Pasaran! (12A)                   
Nov 13 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out vital repairs on engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew at the time what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity. With unprecedented access, The film Nae Pasaran! now tells the tale and also ventures much further to detail the horrors of the Pinochet years, meeting survivors of the period and hearing the Chilean side of the story.

“The world is full of light and this film is one shining example.” Emma Thompson

Sometimes Always Never (12A)  – tbc   
Nov 19 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

Alan (Bill Nighy) is a stylish tailor with moves as sharp as his suits.  He has spent years searching tirelessly for his missing son Michael who stormed out over a game of Scrabble. Sometimes Always Never is a drama about words and loss. It tells the story of a family with an exceptional Scrabble vocabulary who cannot put their words to use and communicate with each other, and their journey to reconnect. Bill Nighy, Sam Riley, Tim McInnery and Jenny Agutter star in an off-beat comedy written by Frank Cottrell Boyce. “A joy of a script, which seeds its themes as elegantly as Nighy’s character, Alan . . .wears his suits”. The Observer

Only You (15)                       
Dec 3 @ 7:45 pm – 9:45 pm

As Glasgow celebrates New Year’s Eve, a chance encounter brings Jake (Josh O’Connor) and Elena (Laia Costa) together and the attraction is instant. Sexy and smitten, they’re totally swept up in each other and the relationship develops at speed. Sure, there’s an age gap, but not one that matters to them, especially when everything feels this good. But this bliss is tested when the couple consider starting a family and hit a brick wall of biology. For her feature debut, Harry Wootliff has crafted an authentic romantic drama that is fearless in its look at modern love, particularly the emotions and practicalities surrounding fertility. It’s a rarely explored topic, brought vividly to life by O’Connor and Costa, two of the most charismatic onscreen presences in contemporary cinema.

Only You is a perfectly realised story of love and longing.” Mark Kermode, The Guardian.

XY Chelsea (15)               
Dec 11 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

After causing the largest leak of secrets in US history, when she disclosed 750,000 documents to Wikileaks, ex-soldier and trans woman Chelsea Manning was supposed to spend 35 years in an all-male military prison. But in 2017 President Obama commuted her sentence, in an unprecedented move that divided the US and the world. The film follows her as she leaves prison, after seven years inside, and begins a new life, whilst at the same time having to deal with the far-reaching consequences of her past; the historic leaks that lead to her prison sentences, the unintended celebrity status that is thrust on her as one of the world’s most notorious whistleblowers, and transitioning to become the woman she has always known herself to be.

“Manning is a tremendous example of personal bravery and integrity, and of the power of directing one’s own unhappiness (whatever the source) into positive action. Comfortable people have little motivation to take on the world.” Flick Filosopher

started as a project about prisoners that were unfilmable…”  Mark Kermode, BBC Five Live

Rocketman (15) – Second Screening           
Dec 17 @ 7:45 pm – 9:45 pm

Dexter Fletcher (Bohemian Rhapsody) brings the much anticipated biopic of Elton John’s life to the screen in a suitably extravagant musical, taking us through his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music, to his enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin and the struggles encountered in his personal life. Taron Egerton gives a barnstorming performance as Elton with support from Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard and Gemma Jones.

“Dexter Fletcher’s fabulous Elton John musical is a heart-racing, toe-tapping, all-glitter-cannons-blazing triumph” ***** Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
