This is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, the music and the band’s extraordinary lead singer, the late Freddie Mercury.

from the trenches.

Dogman  103 mins, Friday November 2, 8;15pm; Sunday November 4, 8pm.
Matteo Garrone, the master filmmaker behind Gomorrah returns to the crime thriller genre with the tension-filled and relentlessly captivating Dogman. Featuring a Cannes award-winning performance from Marcello Fonte as the gentle dog groomer who finds himself in a dangerous relationship with a violent former boxer.
The Big Bad Fox And Other Tales (U) 81mins
From the creators of the Oscar-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic.
The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieities of modern life.
This runs for the first film at weekends and at various other times (see quick-view listings page).
