3 p.m. – Mr. Holmes (United Kingdom / 104 minutes / Rated: PG)
Academy Award® nominees Ian McKellen and Laura Linney star in this new twist on the world’s most famous detective. It’s 1947 – and an aging Sherlock Holmes returns from a journey to Japan, where he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days tending to his bees, with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely on the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it’s too late.
“A delightful twist on the world’s most famous detective.” – Screen International
5.15 p.m. – Amy (United Kingdom / 128 minutes / Rated: R)
From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.
