The first quarter of the year is always a fantastic time for cinema, with huge blockbusters opening hand in hand with prestige awards season favourites. The City is the place to be for cinephiles this March, with Everyman Broadgate, Barbican Cinema and Curzon Aldgate all offering a wonderfully varied slate of titles.
See The Phantom of the Open at Everyman Broadgate. Starring Academy Award winner Mark Rylance (above), the film tells the true to life story of Maurice Flitcroft, the first amateur golfer to gain entry to the British Open. A heart-warming British tale, this movie is one for fans of Pride or Eddie the Eagle. Plus, it’s directed by Craig Roberts, who you may know as shy Oliver Tate from Submarine.
Like impressing your friends by ticking off all the awards season films? Check out Oscar Week at Barbican Cinema. Starting on 25 March, the Barbican will be screening all of this year’s biggest nominees. Missed being dazzled by Steven Spielberg’s masterful update of West Side Story (above)? How about Benedict Cumberbatch’s career-best turn in BAFTA Best Film winner The Power of the Dog? The Barbican has you sorted.
If you’re more a fan of caped crusaders, Curzon Aldgate is the place for you. R-Patz himself has put on the cowl to become Gotham’s vengeance in The Batman (above), a star-studded take on the world’s greatest detective. For those of you on the other side of the DC v Marvel debate, Jared Leto brings living vampire Michael Morbius to the big screen for the first time in Morbius, screening at Curzon Aldgate from 31 March.
Whatever you’re looking for from the silver screen, there’s something for all film fans in the City this March. See you in the foyer.
