New Releases

Have a Nice Day

Arriving at Belmont is welcoming The Islands and the Whales, a stunning documentary which provides an insight into the Faroese community and their controversial whale-hunting traditions, and how the polluted seas are now threatening this vital food source. After receiving it's European premiere at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016, it went on to win the Emerging International Filmmaker Award at HotDocs 2016. 

Also beginning from today is Have a Nice Day, an animated Tarantino-esque black comedy from Liu Jian which follows a young delivery driver who steals a bag containing 1 million yuan from his boss. Word travels fast and soon everyone from ageing hitmen to gangster bosses are trying to get their hands on the life-changing money. 

Next week sees the beginning of Mark Felt: The Man who Brought Down the White House, a thriller starring Liam Neeson as Mark Felt, otherwise known as the notorious Watergate whistle-blower 'Deep Throat'.  This unbelievable true story chronicles the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything in the name of justice. 

Continuing this week is Wes Anderson's beautiful new stop-motion film Isle of Dogs, which follows a young boy who travels to Trash Island, where all dogs have been quarantined after an outbreak of canine flu, in search of his lost dog Spots. We'll also be showing Anderson's first stop-motion animated feature Fantastic Mr Fox on Saturday 7 April at 11.00am and 8.25pm - tickets £4.50 for all. We're also giving you another chance to catch some of the big winners at this year's Oscars©, by bringing back The PostSteven Spielberg's thriller starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks which earned nominations for Best Picture and Best Actress for Meryl Streep.
