New Releases

The Equalizer

Based on the TV series aired in the ‘80s of the same name, “The Equalizer” stars Denzel Washington as a retired intelligence officer. His plans of leading a quiet life are hindered when he meets Teri (played by Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl being held under the control of vicious Russian gangsters, forcing him out of retirement. A must-see for action and thriller fans alike!

What We Did On Our Holiday

David Tennant and Rosamund Pike play a couple on the brink of divorce who haven’t quite been able to tell their three children yet. Taking the kids to celebrate their Grandad’s birthday (played wonderfully by Billy Connolly), the film is humorous in a subtle yet charming way; from the creators of TV show “Outnumbered” who know how to do that extremely well. Set in the Scottish Highlands with some notable Scots in the cast, this film is both cheerful and likeable, largely thanks to Connolly.

Catch A Classic
