Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald (12A) 134 mins.
At the end of the first film, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

Starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers.
They Shall Not Grow Old 3D (15) 120mins
On the centenary of the end of the First World War, Peter Jackson (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy) presents an extraordinary new work, revealing the Great War as you’ve never seen it. Using cutting-edge technology to transform images and audio captured a hundred years ago, Jackson’s passion project brings to life the people who can best tell the story: those who were there. Using only the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate, slept and formed friendships, and what their lives were like away from the trenches. Reaching through the fog of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans who survived to tell their stories, and detail the humility and humanity of those who represented a generation changed forever by a global war.
