We also have the inimitable Emma Thompson in a sex-positive tale of empowerment and self-discovery, and for fans of classic children’s literature there are modern versions of Peter Pan and The Railway Children.

“There’s also the latest titles from our World Cinema tier, and a hilarious, big-hearted sci-fi action adventure. Plus our usual dementia-adapted classic film, the latest from NT Live, and a special screening from the 100th anniversary of Nosferatu, with live scores from Sound of Scarborough. Something to ‘bite our teeth into’!”
