Adapted from JG Ballard’s visionary novel, directed by Ben Wheatley and starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons and Sienna Miller.

Marguerite [15] 129 mins Subtitled  1921: not far from Paris, a party is being held at the famous Marguerite Dumont’s mansion. Nobody knows much about the mysterious Marguerite except that she has devoted her whole life to her passion: music. As she takes centre stage, she sings enthusiastically but terribly out of tune. When a provocative young journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance it gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream – to perform in front of a crowd of complete strangers. Featuring a powerhouse performance from Catherine Frot, Marguerite is a touching and light-hearted feast for the ears. A runaway success in its native France, and featuring music from Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi, Marguerite will live in your heart long after the credits roll. Directed by Xavier Giannoli and starring Catherine Frot, André Marcon, Michel Fau, Christa Théret and Denis Mpunga.

Special events at Rye Kino to look forward to include:

Lucia di Lammermoor  LIVE OPERA: Monday April 25 at 7:15pm  Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th-century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers. It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera’s most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti’s finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. Conducted by Daniel Oren and starring Diana Damrau and Charles Castronovo.

BFI presents: Richard III Thursday April 28 at 7:30pm  Marking 400 years since the death of Shakespeare, Richard III (1995) returns to cinemas across the UK on April 28 as a one-day event cinema release. The new 2K restoration of the classic adaptation starring Sir Ian McKellen with Annette Bening, Maggie Smith, Nigel Hawthorne, Jim Broadbent, Kristen Scott Thomas, Robert Downey Jr. and Dominic West is preceded by an exclusive documentary and followed by a post-film discussion with its screenwriter and star, Sir Ian McKellen, and its director, Richard Loncraine, broadcast live from BFI Southbank.

Measure for Measure  Monday May 9 at 7:45pm   After a history of quirky adaptations, this lesser known work is now restored to its classic glory. In this story of secret identities and manipulation, the audience are invited to unravel the layers of intrigue skillfully crafted by a superb cast and the directorial prowess of Dominic Dromgoole in his final production for the Globe Theatre. Starring Mariah Gale as Isabella, Dominic Rowan as Duke Vincentio and Kurt Egyiawan as Angelo. Booking at the Kino from 11am, Friday April 8.
