We have a superb Spring programme of films for April and May at Stamford Arts Centre. There are thoughtful movies such as Oscar winning Belfast – Kenneth Brannagh’s semi-autobiographical film about his childhood in Ireland, as well as comic-book-crowd-pleasers such as The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz.



Comedy movies are packed into the schedule with The Phantom of the Open, a gentle comedy based on antics of Maurice Flitcroft who entered the 1976 British Golf Open and shot the worse round ever in Open history. Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren star in The Duke and are in all sorts of trouble over the theft of a famous piece of artwork. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a chance for Nicolas Cage fans to see him in his craziest role yet… playing a fictionalised version of himself.


There’s also plenty to keep children entertained over the Easter holidays with Rabbit Academy, that sees a big city rabbit Leo try to abolish Easter. Videogame-favourite-turned-big-screen-hit Sonic the Hedgehog 2 zooms into Stamford starring Jim Carrey and Idris Elba. Whilst young adults will enjoy more Harry Potter inspired hijinks with Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. For the romantics out there, period drama Cyrano starring Peter Dinklage will be one to watch with scintillating swordplay and dazzling dialogue.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent


Bill Murray fans will delight at a satellite screening of Bill Murray’s New Worlds which sees the star of Ghostbusters and Lost in Translation discuss everything from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story in a wildly entertaining, humorous, and deeply touching offering. Finally, Nosferatu offers movie lovers the opportunity to take a step back in time to the Golden age of cinema with Max Schreck starring the vampire Count Orlok in this silent German horror movie from 1922.
