We the Animals

This fluid, dream-like adaptation of Justin Torres’ autobiographical novel about a mixed-race family with three inseparable young sons in upstate New York, is a lyrical, impressionistic, arrestingly beautiful and strongly performed work of cinema. A heartbreaking film – part coming of age story, part sexual exploration, part magical realism – explores the animalism of young children alongside that of violent, warring adults.

Sorry We Missed You

At this time of year it’s important to be thinking of others, and especially those worse off than ourselves. So we’ve come up with an idea to help share some festive good will around, and lend a helping hand to our community.


Sorry We Missed You is the latest offering from politically charged filmmaker Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake).


Ricky and his family, have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self employed delivery driver. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.


A startling and confrontational look at the gig economy, and a film that highlights the cost of on demand culture. Something we can all be more mindful of as we approach Christmas.

We'd like to ask all customers who attend to bring a donation for the Jigsaw Food Bank in Matlock. Suggestions of items can be found here.

Exhibition on Screen: Lucien Freud - A Self Portrait

This exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.


Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation.

Royal Opera House: Fidelio

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him.


Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope.

Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, Exhibition on Screen uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.


Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, we explore the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.
