Damien Chazelle / USA 2016 / 2h8m / 12A – Contains infrequent strong language. Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, J.K. Simmons, Rosemarie DeWitt. A drummer himself, Damien Chazelle (director of last year's brilliantly intense Whiplash) wrote La La Land in tribute to the musicals he loves, while infusing elements of 'city symphony' films and the hard realities of life, love and being an artist. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone - a jobbing musician and aspiring actress respectively - meet and fall for each other, and we are led through the stages of their whirlwind romance as they chase their dreams, find success and meet its challenges. All of the above is expressed through song, dance and big, bold homages to classic movie musicals.
7.30pm, £7.50 (£6.50).
