Finding Dory (U) Following on from 2003’s hit animated aquatic adventure Finding Nemo, the amnesiac regal blue tang Dory (voiced as before by Ellen DeGeneres) unexpectedly recovers some childhood memories, prompting her to set out to find her family. Accompanied by her friends Nemo (Rolence) and Marlin (Brooks), she swims to California’s Monterey Marine Life Institute, where she meets bolshie octopus Hank (Ed O’Neill), beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell) and whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olson), who agree to help her in her quest. Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 1pm and 3.30pm, Saturday at 12.30pm and 3pm, Sunday at 12.30pm and 5.30pm and Thursday at 1pm, 3.30pm and 6pm.

The Legend of Tarzan (12A) Harry Potter director David Yates brings breathtaking digital enrichments to the King Of The Jungle’s adventures, and with his rippling torso and steely determination, Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) adds undeniable magnetism as our eponymous hero. Raised by apes after his parents’ deaths in the African bush, John Clayton eventually returned as the third Viscount of Greystoke to his London home, where he married his Jane (Robbie, The Wolf Of Wall Street). He is unable to resist the call of the jungle when the British government offers him the post of Congolese trade envoy – but he is unaware that a devious Belgian Army captain (Waltz, SPECTRE) is manipulating him as part of a self-serving murderous plot. Friday and Monday at 6pm, Saturday at 8.15pm and Sunday at 3pm.

Star Trek: Beyond (12A) The latest film in the glorious reboot of the Star Trek series, Star Trek Beyond finds the crew of the USS Enterprise jumping ship after a series of increasingly aggressive attacks by unknown aliens. Marooned on a mysterious planet, they face new, viciously hostile foes led by the reptilian Krall (Elba, in malevolent form). But Captain Kirk (Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Saldana) and Scotty (Pegg, who also co-scripted) are determined to overcome the odds and return safely to Earth. However, this means applying some ingenious sci-fi alchemy, which Krall and his villainous henchwoman Jaylah (Sofia Boutella) do their utmost to undermine. Friday at 8.30pm, Saturday at 5.30pm, Sunday at 8pm, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 8.30pm and Wednesday at 6pm.

Adult Life Skills (15) Twenty-nine-year-old Anna (Whittaker, Broadchurch) has a deadend job and lives in a shed in her mother’s garden, an existence she seems to have adopted in response to the death of her twin brother – her grieving process includes making home sci-fi movies featuring her face-painted thumbs. Oblivious of the awkward romantic advances of a co-worker, and threatened with eviction by her increasingly exasperated mother (Ashbourne, Jericho), Anna strikes up an unlikely but mutually supportive friendship with a troubled young neighbour (Myers) whose mother has just been hospitalised. Tuesday at 6pm and Wednesday at 8.45pm.
