<em>FRANK</em> 2014 MA15+

FRANK 2014 MA15+

DCP, COLOUR, MONO, 95 MINUTES, UK/IRELAND/USA, ENGLISH/FRENCH/GERMAN / DIRECTOR: LENNY ABRAHAMSON

Inspired by the character of Frank Sidebottom, the 1980’s alter ego of eccentric English pop star Christopher Sievey, and co-written by ex-bandmate Jon Ronson, Frank is a whimsical comedy about an aspiring musician who finds himself in avant-garde pop band, the Soronprfbs, led by the cryptic Frank (Michael Fassbender) a man who functions only when wearing a large papier-mâché head.

<em>SHALL WE DANCE</em> 1937 G

SHALL WE DANCE 1937 G

Saturday 20 June | 10.30am | Cinema A, GOMA

35MM, BLACK AND WHITE, MONO, 109 MINUTES, USA, ENGLISH/FRENCH / DIRECTOR: MARK SANDRICH / PRINT SOURCE/RIGHTS: CHAPEL FILMS

Free / No bookings required; places are limited; please arrive early to secure your seat

Dancing and singing to the glorious score of George Gershwin, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are reunited in this light-hearted comedy of errors. When master ballet dancer Peter (Astaire) meets tap dancer Linda (Rogers), it is love at first sight – for Peter at least. Things get complicated when Linda’s manager begins to circulate rumours that the two are married. The seventh of Astaire and Rogers’ ten films together, it features the Oscar-nominated classic ‘They can't take that away from me’, and one of their most famous numbers, the roller skating duet, ‘Let’s call the whole thing off’.

<em>THE GREAT BEAUTY</em> 2013 MA15+

THE GREAT BEAUTY 2013 MA15+

Saturday 25 July | 11.00am | Cinema A, GOMA

35MM, COLOUR, DOLBY DIGITAL, 142 MINUTES, ITALY/FRANCE, ITALIAN/JAPENESE/SPANISH/CHINESE (ENGLISH SUBTITLES) / DIRECTOR: PAOLO SORRENTINO / PRINT SOURCE/RIGHTS: PALACE FILMS

Free / No bookings required; places are limited; please arrive early to secure your seat

Winner of the 2014 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, The Great Beauty is an evocative tale of hedonism and lost love. The story follows Jep Gambardella, a wealth socialite and failed novelist who has spent his life ensconced in the extravagant nightlife of Rome’s elite. When a messenger informs him of the death of his first love, the shock leads Jep to explore Rome’s city streets and ruins, reflecting on his life both past and present. Arguably one of the most striking evocations of a city ever filmed, The Great Beauty captures contemporary Rome in all of its splendour and superficiality.
