This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.


Mon 30 Oct 2023

Academy Award® nominees Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal star in Foe, a haunting exploration of marriage and identity set in an uncertain world.

Hen (Saoirse Ronan) and Junior (Paul Mescal) farm a secluded piece of land that has been in Junior’s family for generations, but their quiet life is thrown into turmoil when an uninvited stranger (Aaron Pierre) shows up at their door with a startling proposal.

Based on best-selling author Iain Reid’s novel, directed by Garth Davis (Lion, Mary Magdalene) and co-written by Davis and Reid, Foe’s mesmerising imagery and persistent questions about the nature of humanity (and artificial humanity) bring the not-too-distant future to luminous life. 

Foe will be released in cinemas on Thursday 2 November. Join us in the cinema for a very special preview screening.
