Bleed For This
released Friday December 2nd, 2016

Based on a true story, Vinny “The Pazmanian Devil” Pazienza (Miles Teller), takes the boxing world by storm after winning two world title fights, but then after a near-fatal car accident leaves him with a broken neck, he is told he may never walk again.
Against all odds, Vinny battles to return to the ring just a year after the accident, for what could be the last fight of his life.


The Birth of a Nation

This is the story of Nat Turner, the man who led a slave rebellion in Virginia in 1831.
Nat (Nate Parker) has been made to act as a Baptist preacher to other slaves, but while witnessing the horrific treatment of his fellow man, he knows that he can no longer just stand by and preach.
Upon rising up against his white owners, his quest for freedom and justice leads to a violent and historic rebellion.


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
released Thursday December 15th, 2016

The hugely anticipated Star Wars spin-off hits cinemas this month.
This story follows a group of unlikely heroes and rebel fighters, who come together to steal plans to the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the rule of the Empire.

Donnie Darko
in cinemas from Saturday December 17th, 2016

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of a true cult classic, a special 4K restoration will be released in cinemas this month.

Troubled teenager Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) survives a bizarre accident, while a vision of a large bunny rabbit tells him that the world will be coming to an end.
Donnie’s behaviour and grip on reality become increasingly irrational, as we’re drawn into a mind-bending journey where our title character looks to alter time and destiny.

This will be a rare chance for fans to see this film on the big screen, and a perfect way for those unfamiliar to introduce themselves to this original and imaginative classic.
