It's May 1940. Germany has advanced into France and Allied troops are trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk.

Gripping from beginning to end, the journey these men face is one you'll never forget.
This inspiring true story will pull at your heart strings and grip you to the end. Five-year-old Saroo gets lost in a train and ends up thousands of miles across India, alone. Taken into an orphanage, he is eventually adopted by a couple in Australia. Twenty-five years later, he sets out to find his lost family and return to his first home.
The original cast is back together for this long-anticipated sequel. After 20 years on the run abroad with £16k of stolen drug money, Mark Renton find himself back home in Edinburgh. He might be long clean of drugs, but his conscience isn't quite clear, and returning to Scotland means facing up to the friends he betrayed.
Have the time of your life when we screen this classic romance. On holiday with her parents at a sleepy resort, teenager Baby isn't having the best summer.

Join us for this very special Anster Cinema screening of By the Law with a live guitar score by R M Hubbert.
Multi-award-winning, post-rock, Scottish composer and song-writer RM Hubbert (aka Hubby) performs his brand new guitar score, commissioned by HippFest, for this pared-back Soviet Western.
Legendary director Lev Kuleshov adapted a short story by Jack London, fashioning a tense, existential study of moral pressure… Three gold prospectors are holed up in a cabin – one driven to murder by greed, the other two wrestling with whether to wait for the snow and ice to thaw and go for the authorities or to take the Law into their own hands.
The stage is set for a claustrophobic drama of raw power, combining naturalism and the grotesque, realism and melodrama… An exhilarating match for the candid and genre-defying music of one of Scotland’s best-loved artists.
