A screening of the critically acclaimed narco-thriller
Built in 1848, Regent Street Cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. With a recent renovation restoring it to its former grandeur, it has added an old school touch to the capital's movie scene, perfect for catching those classic flicks. This time, prepare yourselves Dennis Villeneuve's action-packed drug war thriller, Sicario. Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro both deliver exceptional performances in a film that is sending audiences home with clammy palms and raised heart-rates. Set in the lawless border area between the US and Mexico, an FBI agent (Blunt) and a mysterious consultant (Del Toro) are enlisted to help tackle the escalating war on drugs. What follows will affect them for the rest of their lives. "This is one of the best movies of the year." – Chicago Sun Times "We can thank Villeneuve and rookie screenwriter Taylor Sheridan's tight script, but also Blunt, Brolin and Del Toro, each of whom has never been better." – Globe And Mail Certificate 15. Runtime: 2 hours.
"A beautifully murky, hard-edged thriller. Quite simply, one of the best films of the year."
