THE DUKE (12) – FRIDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2022

In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history.

The film is an amusing take on the convoluted tale of amateur theft.

Directed by: Roger Michell 2022 UK, 96 minutes

Directed by: Terence Davies 2021 UK, 137 minutes

WEST SIDE  STORY (12A) – FRIDAY 11 NOVEMBER 2022

Spielberg’s take on the classic 1961 film breathes new life into the romantic musical drama loosely based on Romeo and Juliet.

THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD (PG) – FRIDAY 16 DECEMBER 2022
