NORTH BY NORTHWEST (PG, 136 mins)

Of all the masterful works of suspense created over the course of the director’s career, NORTH BY NORTHWEST is truly the quintessential Hitchcock movie. More than just a thriller, it’s a national treasure. If you’ve already seen this sensational Cary Grant/Alfred Hitchcock collaboration 100 times, it’s probably time to see it again. And if this is your first time... don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (U, 103 mins)

There are two types of people in the world: those who love this classic musical extravaganza, and those who haven’t got around to seeing it yet. Hollywood’s last great masterpiece of entertainment, SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN is a heartwarming love story, a fabulous comedy, and an affectionate tribute to Hollywood history. With unforgettable songs and iconic dance routines, this promises to be a cinematic event like no other. (Deck chair tickets also available for £12 / £10 Members.)

JURASSIC PARK (PG, 126 mins)

Dinosaurs are invading Greenwich — well, sort of. The early ’90s was a simpler time, when cerebral character actors like Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum could play action heroes, bad motherfathers like Samuel L. Jackson could play nerdy computer geeks, and CGI special effects were the hottest new sensation in cinema. This is quite simply the 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY of dinosaur movies!

Sunday 5 August, 7.00

LABYRINTH (U, 101 mins)

Dance, magic dance! What do you get when you combine the talents of Jim Henson, George Lucas, Terry Jones and David Bowie? Something pretty dang great, of course. And LABYRINTH, the classic ’80s musical, is as close to perfect as you get.

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (U, 150 mins)

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is heralded by critics as perhaps the best science-fiction film ever made. A mind-bending symphony, this landmark 1968 epic pushed the limits of narrative and special effects towards a meditation on technology and humanity. Prepare to have your socks knocked off! (Deck chair tickets also available for £12 / £10 Members.)

THE GOONIES (PG, 114 mins)

Break out your best Truffle Shuffle!  One of the most treasured family films of the ’80s, THE GOONIES teaches us that adventure lurks around every corner if we just open our hearts to it. With performances from the young Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Martha Plimpton and Corey Feldman, THE GOONIES hasn’t aged a day – and when you watch it, you’ll feel like you haven’t either.

Saturday 12 August, 3.00

THE ARTIST (PG, 100 mins)

One of the most celebrated films of recent years, THE ARTIST is the story of the last days of the silent movie in the golden era of Hollywood. Funny, witty and romantic, this film took the world by storm in 2011, and will undoubtedly go down as a modern classic. Not to be missed!
