Black Sea (15). Sacked from his last command, submariner Captain Robinson (Jude Law) takes on a risky assignment to recover a hoard of Hitler’s gold from a sunken Second World War submarine in the Black Sea. He assembles a misfit crew of desperadoes to hunt for the treasure. With the crew’s stress levels heightened by their claustrophobic submarine and the inherent dangers of the mission, Robinson is soon confronted with the violent consequences of the greed and distrust among them. Directed by Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald (The Last King Of Scotland), this suspenseful thriller follows in the noble wake of Das Boot and The Hunt For Red October, delivering many a tense twist. Friday at 6pm, Sunday at 7.30pm, Monday at 8.30pm, Tuesday at 2.30pm.

The Imitation Game. Benedict Cumberbatch masterfully portrays Alan Turing, the mathematical genius who broke Germany’s Enigma code during the Second World War. Flashbacks following Turing’s arrest for homosexuality chronicle his battles with the commander of the Bletchley Park codebreakers (Charles Dance) and his fight to build the huge electro-mechanical computer which would help him decipher the code. Gripping and profoundly moving. Friday at 8.30pm, Sunday at 5pm, Monday at 6pm, Tuesday at 5pm and 7.30pm, Wednesday at 6pm and 8.30pm.

Paddington (PG). Arriving in London from his native Peru with a ‘Please Look After This Bear’ label around his neck, our bewildered ursine hero Paddington (voiced by Ben Whishaw) is fortunately befriended by kindly Mr and Mrs Brown (Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins) and embarks on a series of delightful adventures. This charming amalgam of CGI, animatronics and live action will enchant fans old and new. Saturday at 11am, 1.15pm and 3.30pm, Sunday at 12.30pm and 2.45pm.

Met Opera Live: The Merry Widow. Saturday at 5.55pm.
