Bad Moms  101 mins In this new comedy from the writers of The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed mums on a wild, un-mum-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect mums. Starring Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Julieta  99 mins subtitled Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antía. They both suffer in silence over the loss of Xoan, Antía’s father and Julieta’s husband. But at times grief doesn’t bring people closer, it drives them apart, and when Antía turns eighteen she abandons her mother without a word of explanation. Julieta is about a mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty and that unfathomable mystery that leads us to abandon the people we love, erasing them from our lives as if they had never existed. Nominated for a Palme d’Or at Cannes 2016, directed by Pedro Almodóvar and starring Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte.
Valley of Love  92 mins subtitled Two of French cinema’s most prolific performers, Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu reunite to play an estranged couple meeting for the first time in years. Their photographer son Michael has requested that they visit a series of remote locations outlined in a note prior to his suicide six months earlier. Respecting their son’s wishes, they put their personal grievances to one side and proceed to confront the wounds of the past. Valley of Love reignites the chemistry between Depardieu and Huppert, both giving tender and deeply felt performances.
Born to be Blue  98 mins In the 1950s, Chet Baker was one of the most famous trumpeters in the world, renowned as both a pioneer of the West Coast jazz scene and an icon of cool. By the 1960s, he was all but washed up, his career and personal life in shambles due to years of addiction. Creatively blending fact with fiction and driven by Ethan Hawke’s virtuoso performance, Born to Be Blue unfolds at a key moment in the 1960s, just as Baker attempts to stage a hard-fought comeback, spurred in part by a passionate romance with a new flame.
Swallows & Amazons [PG] 97 mins An enchanting new take on the beloved novel by Arthur Ransome, Swallows & Amazons tells the story of the Walker children, whose summer holiday in the Lake District sees them sailing out on their own to a local island, only to find themselves in competition with a rival group of children who call themselves the Amazons and ultimately an adventure far bigger than they could have imagined. Combining a great British cast with stunning locations and a classic story, Swallows & Amazons is an exciting and heart-warming adventure that will be a must-see for family audiences this summer. Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe and starring Kelly Macdonald, Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott, Jessica Hynes, Richard Bremmer and Harry Enfield.
Pete’s Dragon (2D) & (3PGD) 103 mins For years, old wood carver Mr Meacham has delighted children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods. To his daughter, Grace, who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tales until she meets Pete, a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott, who seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr Meacham’s stories. Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs and the truth. Starring Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard and Oakes Fegley.

Alone in the wilderness he is left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point. Starring Antony Sher, Paapa Essiedou, Nia Gwynne, Natalie Simpson and Graham Turner.
