Let's go to the movies!

Films showing from Friday July 27 at the Kino, Rye

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again [12A] 115 mins
Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie, pregnant Sophie returns to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi to learn about her mother’s past. Meryl Streep reprises her role as Donna, Julie Walters as Rosie and Christine Baranski is Tanya, while Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper reunite as Sophie and Sky, with Lily James playing young Donna. As the film goes back and forth in time to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present, Sophie is wondering if she is about to discover which of her three possible fathers (Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Colin Firth) is the real deal, when an uninvited guest arrives in the shape of Cher as Grandma Ruby.
First Reformed [15] 113 mins
From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, American Gigolo) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political and planetary. Reverend Ernst Toller is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church. When a pregnant parishioner asks him to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. Starring Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried.
Whitney [15] 120 mins
Whitney Houston was the voice of a generation. But all her achievements have become a footnote to a story of addiction and self-destruction. With salacious stories filling the columns of tabloid papers and magazines, Whitney had the voice of an angel onstage, but was being torn apart by her demons offstage. Made with full access to her family and collaborators, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald casts her story and her work in a new and revealing light.
Spitfire [PG] 97 mins
An epic and emotional testimony and tribute to the aircraft teams that won the Battle of Britain and ultimately the Second World War, as told by the last serving heroes who built, flew and fought in her. Narrated by Charles Dance, with breathtaking aerial footage from the world’s greatest aviation photographer John Dibbs, and never before seen digitally remastered archive, Spitfire explores how this extraordinary plane became the most famous fighter aircraft ever made.

With the voices of Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Craig T Nelson and Samuel L Jackson.
The Beatles Yellow Submarine [U] 86 mins
