Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler takes us back to the late ‘80s, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later and way past his prime, he gets by performing for wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers. In the cold reality of being a has-been, Randy faces coming to terms with working in a store, building a relationship with the daughter he abandoned, and taking a romantic relationship with Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) to a deeper level. Both O'Rourke and Tomei were Oscar nominees for best lead actor and supporting actress, and O'Rourke won a BAFTA for his performance.

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. We follow the weekly film program so you don't loose out on the latest blockbusters, foreign language films and classic favourites. The Cube provides an area for prams, baby changing facilities, lowered movie volume and extra lighting in the auditorium.

There will always be a friendly Front of House on hand to help.
