The Beatles: Eight Days A Week (Cert TBC) Today at 6pm.
Café Society (12A) Nebbishy Bobby (Eisenberg) goes to 1930s Hollywood, where his powerful agent uncle (Carell) finds him a lowly job. Somewhat disillusioned, Bobby eventually leaves his West Coast sweetheart (Stewart) and returns home to New York to work for his gangster brother, a man given to disposing of rivals in cement overcoats. Woody Allen’s latest film echoes Bullets Over Broadway and Midnight In Paris in both its period evocation and its emotional entanglements. Friday, Saturday and Monday at 6pm, Sunday at 8pm, Tuesday at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm and Wednesday at 8.30pm.
Lights Out (15) David F. Sandberg’s Lights Out is a chilling thriller centred on 20-something Rebecca (Palmer) and her 10-year-old brother Martin (Bateman). They find themselves suffering from horrific hallucinations whenever the lights are switched off. Rebecca discovers that her mother is communicating with a malign supernatural force called Diana (Alicia Vela-Bailey), and that’s when things get really nasty in this superior, sharply honed psycho-horror exercise. Friday and Monday at 8.15pm.
Swallows and Amazons (PG) In this new adaptation of Arthur Ransome’s influential children’s book, siblings Tatty, John, Roger and Susan Walker are on holiday in the Lake District, and quickly jump aboard the eponymous Swallow to set sail for an island that’s long held their imagination. There they encounter the Blackett sisters, who have already claimed the island as their own. Saturday at 1.30pm and 3.45pm and Sunday at 2.30pm.
Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates (15) Self-consciously bad-boy brothers Mike (Devine) and Dave (Efron) need respectable dates to accompany them to their sister’s nuptials. A pair of arguably even more vulgar gals, Alice (Kendrick) and Tatiana (Plaza), somehow convince the brothers and their prim family that they’re the women for the job. The consequences as the two pairs try to prove their straitlaced worth whilst simultaneously out-grossing each other are cause for much merriment in this riotous comedy. Saturday at 8.15pm, Tuesday at 8pm and Wednesday at 6pm.
