Inside Llewyn Davis, Arts Picturehouse (times vary, released Friday 24th January)
The latest film from the talented and prolific Coen brothers tells the story of fictional folk singer-songwriter Llewyn Davis in the customary Coen style. Watch it in order to be justified in getting irate over its various ‘snubs’ from the Academy last week.
The World’s End, Sat 25th, 7pm & 10pm, Christ’s Films
Everybody loves a bit of Simon Pegg, and if you’re a fan of Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz you should definitely watch this apocalyptic comedy for just £4 at Christ’s College.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Sunday 26th January at 7pm & 10pm, St. John’s Picturehouse
Sit back, relax, and let your mind stop intellectualising for a bit with this latest instalment of the Hunger Games franchise. It’s only £3.50 for a ticket, so if you missed out the first time the film was released, go for it now. (Everyone’s said it’s better than the first one, too.)
