Union Films: What’s Coming Up This Week (16/03/2015 – 22/03/2015)


The past week saw the beautiful cheekbones of Benedict Cumberbatch grace our screen as Alan Turing in the biopic The Imitation Game. Not to mention the second showing of Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was a sellout once again. That’s not surprising considering that Colin Firth spent most of the film in a gloriously crisp suit. The Phoenix screened Lilting, a touching drama with Ben Whishaw. Below, see the films that will arrive at your student cinema this week.
