The watching-with-baby screenings are for parents/carers with young babies (up to 1 year) to enjoy a movie in the company of other parents and their offspring. The screenings are also open to folks without babies!
The Cube provides an area for prams, baby changing facilities, lowered movie volume and extra lighting in the auditorium. Our bar/cafe sells yummy homemade cakes and a wide range of beverages and soft drinks at reasonable prices. There will always be a friendly Front of House on hand to help.
When a young woman (Juliette Binoche) loses her famous composer husband and daughter in a car accident, she subsequently enters a strange, rarefied zone of loss and liberty where she reexamines every aspect of their lives together. Shot in sapphire tones by longtime collaborator Sławomir Idziak, and set to an operatic score by Zbigniew Preisner, Blue is one of the director’s most visually elegant, intensely moving works.
Krzysztof Kieślowski's award-winning trilogy explores the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood, and their relevance to the contemporary world. It is a snapshot of European life at a time of reconstruction after the Cold War, reflected through the filmmaker's moralist view of human nature and illuminated by each title's palette colour.
