In Cinemas Now


Bill (PG, 2015)

Director: Richard Bracewell

Cast: Ben Willbond, Laurence Rickards, Martha Howe-Douglas, Mat Baynton, Damien Lewis

Leaving behind his wife and children to find his way in London, happy-go-lucky Bill Shakespeare quickly finds that writing plays for a living isn’t as simple as he thought- especially when all the theatres are closed due to the plague!

He and his new friend Kit Marlowe are forced to take other, less glamorous work. Bill’s long-suffering wife Anne, who suspects he isn’t doing as well in London as he claims, manages to get a pompous lord to commission Bill to write a play to impress the visiting Spanish guests at the court of Elizabeth I.

However, things aren’t that friendly between England and Spain, and Bill’s play might just be setting the stage for an explosive showdown…

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (12A, 2015)

Director: Wes Ball

Cast: Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Broadie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Patricia Clarkson

In this, the second instalment in the Maze Runner saga, the Gladers have escaped the confines of the maze itself, but now face a whole series of new challenges, as they search for clues relating to the mysterious WCKD organisation.

Teaming up with a band of resistance fighters, their journey will take them to a barren landscape called the Scorch, a space full of terrifying and extraordinary obstacles.

Picking right up from where the first film ended, this sequel builds on the rich characterisation that helped make its relatively modest predecessor a success, adding an intriguing new mythology to the richly-populated world of the young adult adaptation.
