An eclectic program of fine films for mature tastes, Matinees feature well-crafted, character-driven stories, period dramas, amusing comedies, fascinating documentaries and internationally acclaimed digital restorations. Generous discounts apply for Members and Seniors Card holders.
Our Autumn 2018 Matinee program is rich with visual pleasures and reflective themes. Step back with Francois Ozon’s sublime Frantz and Sam Garbarski’s tragicomic Bye Bye Germany, set in the aftermath of World War I and II respectively. Gain an insight into the post-war literary fortunes of Hans and Margret Rey, co-creators of Curious George. Bask in the digitally restored glory of The Merchant Ivory Collection with Maurice and Howards End – both acclaimed E.M. Forster adaptations – and the luxurious Heat and Dust, Autobiography of a Princess and Shakespeare Wallah in July. Dame Judi Dench gives a regal performance as Queen Victoria in Victoria & Abdul and César-winning actress Sara Forestier is irresistible in the French drama, Elementary.
