The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

By TV & Film Editor Graham Chalmers

(2h 50m) Thu: 13:30, 14:30, 16:45, 17:45, 20;00, 21:00.

The second instalment of The Hunger Games sees our heroine of a bleak future, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawence, less than popular with the authorities after her victory in the 74th Hunger games sparks a people’s rebellion. Cue action, satire, romance and, even, a bit of leftwing politics.

Gravity 3D (12A)

(2h) Fri-Thu: 13:45, 16:00, 18:15, 20:30.

A smash box office hit in the States and a critics’ favourite across the board, perhaps it’s this visually spectacular space drama’s very reputation which makes it a slightly disappointing experience. There’s no doubt it’s a good film and both Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are very likable as the two main astronauts in peril and here comes the but. . .they’re so likable it’s hard to believe in their characters. Ultimately, Gravity is a very good small film about a big subject.
