Union Films: What’s Coming Up This Week (04/03/13)


This week is fairly dominated by the goings-on in Middle Earth. So, if you fancy something different be sure to pop down on Tuesday for Rust and Bone, or Wednesday for The Source. Otherwise, you know where to come this weekend for your fix of all things Hobbit.

Tuesday 5th March at 7pm: Rust and Bone:

When given the responsibility of looking after his son, Ali heads to live with his sister and her husband in Antibes. There he meets Stephanie (Marion Cotillard), a killer whale trainer, where their bond grows deeper after she suffers an accident. Directed by Jacques Audjard, who previously directed critically acclaimed A Prophet, and starring Marion Cotillard, this is an intense display of story-telling with a hard-hitting visceral impact that will keep the story in your mind long after the credits roll.  If you needed any more reason to watch it, check out The Edge’s review here.

Wednesday 6th March at 7.30pm: The Source:

Living in a small village, Leila, a young new bride, urges all the other women in the village to go on a love strike. With the ultimatum of ‘no sex until the men fetch the water from the mountain top’, how long will the men survive? This French comedy is as much about love and sex as it is about equality, so wherever your passions lie, come along Wednesday to our film in association with The Phoenix.

Saturday 9th March at 7pm: The Lord of the Rings All-Nighter:

Now we love a good all-nighter, and couldn’t resist redoing this one for you with the release of The Hobbit this year as well. With extended editions all ready to show you, you can finally see what all the fuss is about or sit back and enjoy your three most favourite, epic movies of all time. We’re providing plush entertainment in our VIP section as well as intervals between each of the three films for you to stretch your legs. As if you didn’t know already, the line up follows in this order:

The Fellowship of the Ring
The Two Towers
The Return of the King

For more of a breakdown of each film, keep an eye out later in the week for our special preview article! Tickets are £10 or £8 for passholders and with VIP completely sold out (and let me tell you, if you managed to get one of those tickets, you’re in for an even more special treat), this is looking to be BIG. For more information, you can check out our dedicated website page here.

Sunday 10th March at 5pm and 9pm: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey:

If you’re likely to be attending our Lord of the Rings All-Nighter the day before, you’re not going to need much convincing to see this as well! But for those of you on the fence, The Hobbit follows a younger Bilbo Baggins as he journeys to the Lonely Mountain with dwarves in tow to reclaim the treasure stolen by Smaug. Check out The Edge’s review here if I haven’t convinced you enough. And, if you’re coming to our later showing, remember that its at 9pm instead of the usual 8pm slot this Sunday!

As our last full week, we’re really pulling out all the stops, especially with our final movie marathon of the term. Be sure to get a ticket and witness the excitement for yourselves this week at Union Films!
