Inspiration from the Marina


This week’s recommendations:


Cruella (12A) showing Wed 4 & Thu 5 Aug

134 minutes | USA, UK | Dir: Craig Gillespie | Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Joel Fry

Estella is a young and clever grifter who’s determined to make a name for herself in the fashion world. She soon meets a pair of thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they build a life for themselves on the streets of London. However, when Estella befriends fashion legend Baroness von Hellman, she embraces her wicked side to become the raucous and revenge-bent Cruella.

In the Heights (PG) showing Fri 6 & Sat 7 Aug (also showing Wed 11 & Thu 12 Aug)

143 minutes | USA | Dir: Jon M Chu | Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Corey Hawkins

In Washington Heights, N.Y., the scent of warm coffee hangs in the air just outside of the 181st St. subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies a vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is a likable and magnetic bodega owner who hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
