WE are already working on our schedule for the summer holidays and we are considering Hotel Transylvania 3 and Incredibles 2 for families. Ant-Man and The Wasp in 3D, Mission Impossible: Fallout for the more grown-up. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is booked in already from its release on July 20 (some shows already on the website to book).

We made time to watch Ocean’s 8, which was released on Monday (why?) and wanted to review it.

I have to say that the story is really clever, never drags and is well played by all. These mis-fits who come together to pull off this heist are all interesting as the parts of the puzzle.

We are kept guessing throughout with the twists and turns and the ways that the plan has to adapt in small ways are believable. Does it match the credibility test within the parameters it sets up?

Yes, I think it does – there are some breadcrumbs throughout which I forgot about and are cleverly introduced so that we are not waiting for them.

Are there some holes which you can drive a train through? Yes! Does it matter? No! Well explained and directed I really enjoyed it.

Films we are showing from Friday, June 22:

Show Dogs (PG and number nine in the top 10) – a bit of escapism with dogs sorting out and behaving like their owners.

Book Club (12A and number six in the top 10) – funny take on the 50 Shades trilogy of books and the freeing effect they are supposed to have felt by these ladies in their very late “thirties” following

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (12A and number one in the top 10) – a great film with plenty of credible action.

Ocean’s 8 (12A) – really engaging story and a great cast. I couldn’t take my attention away from Sandra Bullock’s nose when she was on screen.

Hereditary (15 and number two in the top 10) – a horror film which seems to have garnered a great deal of respect for being a clever story.

Horror has never been one of my preferred genres of film but I may have a look at it (from behind the sofa!) A grieving family is haunted by “occurrences”!

Coming soon

Zoo (PG) - set in 1941 this is the story of the saving of a baby elephant from the German bombings in Belfast.

Directed by Colin McIvor with a cast including Toby Jones, Penelope Wilton and Art Parkinson as Tom who steals Buster from the Zoo so he can’t be destroyed as a dangerous wild animal. Zoo is with us from July 6.

Swimming with Men (12A) - the story of men who take up Olympic synchronised swimming.

It looks as though it is in the style of Finding Your Feet and The Full Monty.

Stage shows

Due to popular demand we have another encore screening of An American in Paris on Monday, August 20. This has gone down extremely well.
