Synopsis:

Following his award-winning Le Havre, Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki returns with comedy/drama The Other Side of Hope, winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the recent Berlinale. Kaurismäki regular Kuosmanen stars as Wikstrom, a poker-playing restaurateur who befriends Khaled (Haji), a Syrian refugee newly arrived in Finland seeking asylum. Beautifully shot and full of the director's delightfully lugubrious comedy, this is the second instalment in Kaurismäki’s planned trilogy focusing on port cities, this time informed by the ongoing European migrant crisis and the plight of the refugee.

BYOBaby screenings are a chance for the parents and carers of babies up to 12 months old, to get to the cinema without leaving the little one at home. With raised lighting levels, reduced volume and baby changing/bottle warming facilities, we aim to make these screenings as comfortable for you as possible.

Tickets are £5.50, which includes a free tea or coffee. If you want to come down early and catch up with friends, doors open at 10.30am and the film starts around 11.15am.

Due to limited space, we advise people to bring babies in slings or car-seats where possible. Numbers are limited for BYOB showings, so it is advisable to book in advance, particularly for the more well known films.
