CITY Screen Picturehouse’s Summer Sizzler season ends on September 2, climaxing with a packed final week.
The York cinema, in Coney Street, is offering tickets at a specially reduced price of £7.99 or £4.99 for members.
The week ahead’s new main features include: Emma Holly Jones’ adaptation of Suzanne Allain’s novel Mr Malcolm’s List and Scottish actor Alan Cumming in My Old School, Jono McLeod’s cleverly executed documentary about the grown man who passed himself off as a pupil at a Glasgow high school.
On top of that come more chances to catch the sing-song ding-dong Fisherman’s Friends: One And All; Jordan Peele’s spooked sci-fi thriller blend of horses and aliens, Hollywood and horror, Nope, Brad Pitt in David Leitch’s delirious, even goofball action-thriller Bullet Train; Panah Panahi’s extraordinary Iranian comic drama Hit The Road and Daisy Edgar-Jones in Where The Crawdads Sing, Olivia Newman’s adaptation of Delia Owens’s mystery thriller.
For supersonic value, tickets for this evening’s Tom Cruise double bill of Top Gun & Top Gun: Maverick at 6pm cost £4.99.
At midday on Sunday, the same price applies for the Re-Discover screening of Wim Wenders’ 1984 road movie, Paris, Texas, starring Harry Dean Stanton, Dean Stockwell and Nastassja Kinski, with a screenplay by L. M. Kit Carson and playwright Sam Shepard and a musical score by Ry Cooder.
Make a day and night of it for £4.99 at City Screen with Sunday’s Re-Discover European Summer triple bill of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke’s Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight trilogy.
Monday night, 8.30pm, is the screen time for Culture Shock – Kids In America: But I’m A Cheerleader, Jamie Babbit’s 1999 teen movie, wherein naive Megan (Natasha Lyonne), football team cheerleader at her all-American high school, is sent to rehab camp when her straitlaced parents and friends suspect her of being a lesbian.
The Discover slot’s new film on Tuesday at 11am and 8pm is Queen Of Glory, starring writer-director Nana Mensah in a dark comedy about a maladjusted PhD student who becomes sole proprietor of a Christian bookstore.
The concluding screening in the Aesthetica Film Club series will be Foresight: An Urgent Anthology, exploring alternate realities through the lens of five Black British directors on Thursday at 6.30pm.
“This time capsule collection contributes to a perspective and point of view continuously missing from our screens: a future where people of colour exist,” says Aesthetica Short Film Festival director Cherie Federico. “Written, directed and produced by culturally diverse filmmakers who call the UK home.”
Exclusively for parents and carers with babies aged under one, every Wednesday at 11am City Screen presents a Big Scream screening of a new film; this coming week’s choice is Mr Malcolm’s List.
Cheapest of all will be the £3 ticket for Saturday morning’s Kids’ Club screening of Wallace & Gromit: Curse Of The Were-Rabbit at 11.15am; the Kids Club Summer Matinees of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Monday to Wednesday at 10.45am, and the Autism Friendly Summer Matinee of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 on Thursday at 10.45am.
Tickets will be £4 for Monday afternoon’s Dementia Friendly Screening of Funny Face, Stanley Donen’s beautiful and bubbly 1957 American musical romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire , with free entry for accompanying carers plus a complimentary cuppa and biscuit before the 1.15pm show.
