August 11, 2021

Director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel) stops by to talk about his latest film, Free Guy. Playing at Picturehouse cinemas this August. 

Guy (Ryan Reynolds) is an ordinary guy in an extraordinary world: he’s an NPC (non-playable character) in Free City, an expansive and brutal open world video game, only he doesn’t know it. His days are spent working as a bank teller, standing by and letting the game’s heroes do their jobs, until one day something changes. Outside of the game, a pair of programmers (Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer and Stranger Things' Joe Keery) insert a new code that allows Guy to gain a deeper awareness of his surroundings – and before he knows it, he joins forces with the programmers’ in-game counterparts to save his video game home before it gets deleted forever.

The Last Letter From Your Lover with Jojo Moyes | Picturehouse

August 10, 2021

Best-selling author Jojo Moyes stops by to talk about the film adaptation of her novel, The Last Letter From Your Lover. 

Adapted from Jojo Moyes’ best-selling novel, THE LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER is a passionate, dual-narrative love story set in the French Riviera and London during the 1960s and present day. It tells the tale of elegant Jennifer Stirling (Shailene Woodley) and how her life becomes inextricably interwoven with that of Ellie Haworth (Felicity Jones) in life-changing events which connect them across almost half a century.

Jennifer lives a luxurious life with her wealthy and powerful husband Laurence (Joe Alwyn). When an unfortunate event wipes her memory, she struggles to find her identity until she stumbles upon wistful love letters hidden in her home. The passionate notes unravel a star-crossed love affair she had with foreign correspondent Anthony O’Hare (Callum Turner) and ultimately lead her to discover her true self. Jennifer’s story becomes intertwined with that of Ellie, a whip-smart journalist in contemporary London, who discovers and becomes enthralled by these love letters from a bygone era. As she begins to piece them together with the help of archivist Rory (Nabhaan Rizwan), she sets off on a journey that will entangle the two women’s lives forever.
