Enjoy the Oscar nominated adaptation of explosive exposé at Britain's oldest cinema

Having reopened in May 2015, the staff have been dedicated to engaging with the cinema's groundbreaking legacy, showcasing everything from classic films, internationally acclaimed work and even the odd blockbuster. Now, you can catch a screening of the Oscar nominated Spotlight. Shocking. Gripping. Awe-inspiring. There's no wonder why Spotlight is hotly-tipped to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
