Aladdin (2019) (PG)

A kind-hearted street urchin Aladdin vies for the love of the beautiful princess Jasmine, the princess of Agrabah. When he finds a magic lamp, he uses a genie's magic power to make himself a prince in order to marry her.

Animals (15)

Australian director Sophie Hyde, known for her awardwinning debut 52 Tuesdays, returns with this vibrant study of female friendship based on Emma Jane Unsworth’s 2014 novel of the same name. Laura, an aspiring, self-doubting writer and her anarchic best friend Tyler share a flat in Dublin. They live to party, with drink, drugs and general debauchery infusing their days and their careers and personal lives otherwise largely on hold. But when Laura falls in love, her new romance highlights flaws in their friendship that force them to re-consider their shared and separate futures. Consistently unconventional, unruly and rich, Animals capably conjures up an entire world. It boasts excellent performances by and chemistry between Grainger and Shawkat, a sharp, insightful and witty script, and Hyde’s distinctive direction.

Bienvenue Chez Les Ch'Tis (12a)

A French public servant from Provence is banished to the far North. Strongly prejudiced against this cold and inhospitable place, he leaves his family behind to relocate temporarily there, with the firm intent to quickly come back.

Cats (U)

Based on T.S. Eliot’s quirky poetry volume, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the musical follows a gang of cats known as the Jellicles – Eliot’s nonsense term for “dear little cats” – who are preparing for an annual ball. This is more than just your average get together, however. During the festivities, the group must choose someone to go to what’s known as the Heaviside layer, a sort of cat heaven. He or she can then be reborn, beginning the next of his or her nine lives.

Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance (PG)

This is a terrifically enjoyable true story about a group of friends from a workingmen's club in the Valleys who decide to breed themselves a racehorse. Amazingly the horse they raised on the allotments in Cefn Forest takes them on a roller coaster journey to the top of the racing world. Following their dream the bar maid, ex-miners and pensioners mix with Countesses and Sheikhs in the owners enclosure at Aintree. They’re a hugely likeable crew who tell their story with broad smiles on their faces, still barely able to believe how a horse gave hope to their whole village. "Funny, inspiring - with a round of applause at the end." Flicks Promoter

Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs. Hobbs, on Santa's naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter's relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities.

Emma (2020) (U)

Jane Austen's beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this.

Little Women (2019) (U)

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on their own terms – is both timeless and timely.

Military Wives (12a)

At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
