We’ve got some fantastic films in April to close out our Spring Season of Monday Night Cinema…

First, Oscar-nominated German comedy Toni Erdmann (Mon 3 Apr). The follow week it’s Elle (Mon 10 Apr), an unflinching, uncompromising French psychological thriller. Hunt for the Wilderpeople follows on Mon 17 Apr. It’s a charming and funny coming-of-age caper from New Zealand director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). And finally, we end the season with Manchester By the Sea – winner of the Best Actor (Casey Affleck) and Best Original Screenplay awards at the 2017 Oscars, along with a Best Picture Nomination.

As well as our usual Monday Night Cinema screenings, there are three Special Screenings at Pavilion you won’t want to miss…

What better way to kick off the rainiest month on Sat 1 Apr than with Singin’ in the Rain? Packed with memorable songs, movie magic and a stunning performance by Gene Kelly, this is one April shower you won’t want to avoid.

In the Heat of the Night (Fri 14 Apr) from 1967 is the thrilling story of Detective Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) who is forced to work with the Mississippi sheriff who falsely arrested him for murder.

Beloved by kids of all ages, Peter Pan is flying into Pavilion on Easter Monday 17 Apr. This Disney classic is widely considered one of the finest animated films ever made and remains popular generations after its initial release.
