Friday 16 Sep 7.30pm
The King's Speech
2010 UK 119mins (PG) Period drama
The shy, stammering Duke of York suddenly becomes King on the abdication of his brother David. His wife enlists the help of unconventional Australian speech therapist, Lionel Logue, to help him overcome his stammer. A lifelong friendship is forged between the two men.

Strangers on a Train
1951 USA 101 mins (PG) Thriller
Tennis pro Guy and mysterious admirer Bruno meet and decide to trade murders. Bruno is to kill Guy's unfaithful wife and Guy is to murder Bruno's spiteful father. Needless to say in a Hitchcock thriller, nothing goes quite to plan. The suspense is ratcheted up to a white-knuckle finale.

2006 USA 121 mins (15) Comedy drama
When two middle-aged friends go on a road trip round the vineyards of California, they have different agendas. Divorced, neurotic, slightly depressed Miles is a wine snob and budding author, while Jack is a fading Casanova looking for one last fling before his wedding. Witty fun with American men behaving badly.


Friday 13 Jan 7.30pm
Another Year
2010 UK 129 mins (15)
A Mike Leigh film which depicts solid couple Tom and counsellor Gerri and their various friends and family through the course of a year. Will their son find a steady girlfriend? Will Gerri's needy friend get her life sorted out? Will Tom's overweight, workaholic pal mend his ways? This is a keenly observed slice of family life with all its ups and downs.
Saturday Feb 18 + supper 6.30pm
Kind Hearts and Coronets
1949 UK 102 mins (U) Comedy drama
Classic Ealing black comedy about a resourceful serial killer, Dennis Price, who decides to remove all those blocking his way to a Dukedom. Alec Guinness plays all 8 members of the D'Ascoyne family to be assassinated.
Friday 23 Mar 7.30pm
The Illusionist
2010 Fr 80 mins (PG) Animation
A Sylvain Chomet film from a script by Jacques Tati. A traditional magician with a fading career meets young Alice, who follows him to Edinburgh, hoping for a more exciting life. The magician supports Alice as an adopted daughter with occasional gigs and jobs. It is a wistful story with minimal dialogue and Edinburgh is beautifully depicted.
Fri 20 Apr 20 7.30pm
How I Ended This Summer
2010 Russia 124mins (12A) Thriller
On an Arctic island in NE Russia, Sergei, a veteran scientist, is joined at the rundown weather station by young student Pavel. The student's frivolous ways ensure a clash of personalities. Pavel fails to pass on an important radio message to Sergei about his family and as the weather deteriorates, so does the atmosphere between them.

The programme may be changed at short notice, if there are circumstances beyond our control.
