Jarman's career is the subject of Derek, a new documentary by the artist Isaac Julien, which centres around an interview with the film-maker, interspersed with clips of his films and a narration by his muse, Tilda Swinton (she appeared in seven of his movies). The movie was the centrepiece of an exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, curated by Julien last year. A homage to Jarman's vision, the show included rarely seen Super-8 shorts, paintings and Jarman's 1993 film Blue.

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.
