Lets go to the movies!


Movies showing at the Rye Kino from Friday May 13 include :

Florence Foster Jenkins [PG] 110 mins  Directed by Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen), this is the delightful true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice Florence heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals her devoted husband and manager, St Clair Bayfield, managed to protect Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give her first public concert, St Clair realised he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew. A sophisticated comedy starring Meryl Streep as the deluded Florence with Hugh Grant giving a superb performance as her attentive husband. Also starring Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Helberg and John Sessions.

Captain America: Civil War (2D) & (3D) [12A] 147 mins   Political pressure mounts to make the Avengers accountable to someone. Tony Stark supports the idea of a governing body for the team. Steve Rogers wants them to be independent and able to help people without interference. Having saved the world together twice, these new rules drive a wedge between them and turn the Avengers against each other. The Marvel Cinematic Universe will never be the same again – it’s time for the Avengers to disassemble. Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Holland, William Hurtand Daniel Brühl.

Son of Saul [15] 107 mins Subtitled   Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and four prizes at the Cannes Film Festival 2015 including the Grand Prix du Jury, Son of Saul is Hungarian director László Nemes’ blistering debut feature, a courageous and unflinching re-imagining of the Holocaust. Saul Ausländer is a member of the Sonderkommando, Jewish prisoners forced to assist in the machinery of the Nazi concentration camps. While at work, he discovers the body of a boy he recognises as his son and vows to carry out an impossible task: to give the boy a proper burial. Visceral, gripping and immensely powerful, it is one of the boldest and most remarkable debuts in recent memory – and is already being heralded as a masterpiece of world cinema.

The Jungle Book (2D) & (3D) [PG] 106 mins  Rudyard Kipling’s beloved story returns to the screen in Disney’s magical remake of this classic film, using a combination of live action and astounding computer-generated imagery. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera and the free-spirited bear Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa, a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotises the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie, who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. Directed by Jon Favreau and starring Neel Sethi with the voices of Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken, Idris Elba and Lupita Nyong’o.

Exhibition on Screen: Painting the Modern Garden – from Monet to Matisse + q&a [U]

Kino Rye: Thursday  May 19 at 8pm


Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. From the recent exhibition at The Royal Academy of Arts to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the audience is taken on a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract colour, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable film will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring fascination with gardens today.

Please note that Kino member free tickets cannot be used for Live, NT, RSC, opera, ballet or special events.
