Forty years after its original release, Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now returns to cinemas looking and sounding better than ever. Restored from the original negative to the highest audio and visual standards by the director himself, Final Cut is Coppola’s preferred and most visceral version of his Oscar-winning Vietnam War epic. This never-before-seen cut features only some of the footage added back into the Redux release, bringing the runtime to just a shade over three hours.
This screening includes a Q&A between Coppola and director Steven Soderbergh, recorded at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, in which they reflect on the film’s legacy in light of its 40th anniversary, and the long journey to creating this new restoration.
Eye-poppingly realistic CGI brings to life Disney’s cherished animation about a lion cub’s brave journey from pride outcast to proud king. Jon Favreau’s immersive vision gathers a majestic cast on the African savannah to honour all the seminal moments and iconic songs of the original film. James Earl Jones reprises his role as the wise and just King Mufasa, while Donald Glover is Simba, the young prince who takes his royal destiny to heart. Chiwetel Ejiofor lends his voice to Scar, the king’s scheming brother, who forms his own plans to take the throne.

The ninth film from writer-director Quentin Tarantino is a sprawling fairy-tale tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. The year is 1969, and fading actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his long-time stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) are struggling to keep up with the changing times. When Rick’s western TV show ‘Bounty Law’ is cancelled, the former teenage heartthrob sees his career and youth slipping away. The changing of the guard seems to have no effect on Cliff, but the same can’t be said for his counterpart. This is until Rick notices he has a very famous new next-door neighbour: Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie). Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a worrying backdrop for ONCE UPON A TIME…IN HOLLYWOOD – one that Los Angeles will never forget.
