Before Salvador Dali became one of the most famous artists of all time, there was a young man desperate to make something of himself, an extraordinary talent and a friendship that would define his art and those around him.

Paul Morrison’s latest feature since 2003’s Wondrous Oblivion, provides us with the extraordinary story of the relationship between of three of the leading artists of their time; Salvador Dali, Luis Bunuel and Garcia Lorca. Little Ashes follows a young Salvador Dali from his beginnings living in the Residencia de Estudiantes, leading to his dynamic relationship with poet Federico Lorca. It is a moving story of friendship, love and betrayal, and a tale of the complexities of young love and sexual identity.

The shots of the picturesque landscapes of Spain alone makes Little Ashes an unmissable spectacle and Robert Pattinson of 'Twilight' fame brings Dalí to the screen with precisely the irreverent and eccentric personality you would expect from one of the creators of Spain’s avant-garde movement.

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.
