Paddington (PG). Paddington Bear finally reaches the silver screen in a charming mix of CGI, animatronics and live action. Arriving in London from his native Peru, our bewildered friend is taken in by kindly Mr and Mrs Brown (Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins). Voiced by Ben Whishaw, Paddington embarks on a series of adventures as he searches for his Aunt Lucy’s (Imelda Staunton) friend, and has to dodge a malicious taxidermist (Nicole Kidman). Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2.45pm, Monday at 3.15pm.

Interstellar (12A). When scientists discover a wormhole which shrinks the space/time continuum, a group of explorers elect to journey through it and push the boundaries of space travel, while aiming to save humanity from its destructive excesses. The film features a stellar cast including Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain, and director Christopher Nolan’s stunning experimental cinematography. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday at 5pm, Monday at 8.30pm, Wednesday at 5.15pm, next Thursday at 8.30pm.

Horrible Bosses 2 (15). Fed up with their bosses, Dale, Kurt and Nick start their own business.

Returning co-stars from the original film include Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx alongside new adversaries Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8.30pm.

Get On Up (12A). Long-awaited Godfather of Soul biopic magnificently evokes James Brown’s roller-coaster life story, thanks to Chadwick Boseman’s extraordinary performance as Brown and director Tate Taylor’s no-holds-barred narrative. Produced by Mick Jagger, the film follows Brown’s relentlessly determined rise to becoming a global soul legend. Monday at 5.30pm, Tuesday at 2pm, Wednesday at 8.45pm.

Nightcrawler (15). Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) survives by scavenging and petty theft until he stumbles into a new career as a cameraman.

When he catches the eye of news director (Rene Russo), Louis goes to increasingly greater lengths to catch the money shot. Tuesday at 8.30pm, next Thursday at 6pm.
