Check the guide out here!

Ruby – Marketing Officer (Press)

  1. Swimmers
  2. Thirteen Lives – visceral, intense and beautifully (perhaps not quite the right word) shot in the way it induced claustrophobia and anxiety! I had no idea about the lengths they’d gone to to rescue the boys, so much wasn’t covered by the media.
  3. The Banshees of Inisherin – I was crying laughing, then I was crying. Beautifully shot, beautifully written, beautifully acted. Stand out performance from Barry Keoghan who deserves an award for one particular scene.

Mike – Bar & Restaurant 

  1. The Batman
  2. Jackass Forever
  3. Top Gun: Maverick

Ingrid – Customer Sales Supervisor

  1. Master Cheng
  2. Cyrano
  3. Mr. Malcolm’s List

Three still images from films. 1. The Batman stands in a red lit space with rain falling around him. 2. Master Cheng, a man and woman shake hands in a kitchen. 3. The Banshees of Inisherin, Colin Farrell walks across a field with a donkey.

Jamie – Education Officer

  1. The Banshees of Inisherin
  2. The Northman
  3. Brian & Charles

Matthew – Customer Sales Supervisor

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once
  • Fire of Love

Ethan – Film Programming & Marketing Assistant 

  1. Everything Everywhere All at Once – Funny, beautifully shot and a scene of just rocks that will make you laugh, cry and then laugh some more!
  2. After Yang – One of the kindest films I’ve ever watched, for those who like to sit with a beautiful view and contemplate life for a while.
  3. The Banshees of Inisherin – Hilarious and yet deeply unnerving, potentially Martin McDonagh’s best film to date!
  4. Pinocchio (del Toro) – What a perfect way to retell such a classic tale. Forget the world of Disney, welcome to a world of Facism, grief, death and after all… love.

Three still images from films. 1. Everything Everywhere All at Once, a woman with a googley eye stuck to her forehead pulls a mans hair. 2. The Northman, A viking stands topless covered in blood in the middle of a battle. 3. Pinocchio, a small wooden ball stands in a wooded area with a happy expression.
