15 (1968 Lindsay Anderson) 111 mins
Fifty years on since May ’68, we look at the spirit of student revolution on this side of the Channel. A major figure in British film-making despite directing only six feature films, Lindsay Anderson brings wit and emotion to his take on events at a public school. Malcolm McDowell leads the rebellion in this iconic film’s challenge to the Establishment. Make sure you take advantage of this rare chance to see If… on the big screen. We can’t wait!

Wuthering Heights
PG (1992 Peter Kosminsky) 105 mins
As we approach 200 hundred years since Emily Brontë’s birth, we turn to the passions of her famous novel. Marking the feature film debut for both director, Peter Kosminsky, and Ralph Fiennes as Heathcliff, it also features Juliette Binoche as Cathy. Filmed in Yorkshire although, controversially, not at Haworth, this most tempestuous of love stories and rolling moors demands the big screen treatment.
