Monday 6th August 7.30pmThe Dambusters (PG)A brand-new 75th anniversary restoration of a much-loved British classic with local connections (it was filmed on Derwent reservoir). Michael Anderson’s 1955 drama captures the tension and bravery of an audacious raid on the centre of Nazi Germany’s industrial complex and the quintessentially English combination of inventiveness and dogged determination.

Sweet Country (15)A tense, powerful and beautifully shot Australian western set on the Northern Territory frontier in the 1920s. Indigenous actor Hamilton Morris plays Sam who works at a cattle station run by Fred Smith (Sam Neill) - a Christian pioneer.

Monday 20th August 7.30pmLean on Pete (15)British director Andrew Haigh makes the most of vast American landscapes in this moving film. 15 year-old Charley (brilliantly played by Charlie Plummer) - abandoned by his broken family - gets a summer job working for a dodgy horse-trainer (Steve Buscemi) and falls for fading racehorse Pete. When Pete is destined for the knackers’ yard, Charley has a different idea.
Monday 3rd September 7.30pmIn the Fade (18)This year’s German entry for the Oscars is the most thrilling and edge-of-the-seat film we’ve seen for a long time.

With outstanding acting (Best Actress prize for Kruger at Cannes) and brilliant cinematography you will not want to miss this film.
