We're delighted to unveil our unmissable line-up for the month of July, including a Christopher Nolan season, a classic Dr Who double bill and a season devoted to the work of celebrated German director Wim Wenders.

Fans of the mind-bending storylines of Christopher Nolan will have the chance to see some of the director’s biggest hits back on the big screen with our Cinemasters: Christopher Nolan season. The programme will include screenings of Interstellar on 70mm, Inception and The Prestige on 35mm and a triple bill of Nolan’s critically acclaimed Batman films. One special screening of The Prestige will be accompanied by a discussion with Christopher Priest, author of the best-selling novel on which the film is based.

We will also devote a Cinemasters season to the prolific German filmmaker Wim Wenders, known as one of the key figures in the 1970s New German Cinema movement and widely considered to be one of the most important figures in contemporary European film. Screenings will include Wings of Desire, Alice in the Cities, Kings of the Road in 4K, The American Friend in 4K and Wenders’ best-known film Paris, Texas, which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1984.

Following on from Pride Month, we will also play host to Queerious, a curated season from Birds’ Eye View, which invites audiences to get curious and explore a multitude of desires on screen in ways all too rarely seen in cinema. Films will include a rare chance to see The Gold Diggers by Sally Potter, I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing by Patricia Rozema, and Fire by Deepa Mehta, all on the big screen, and a first chance to catch previews of Passion by Maja Borg.

Q&A screenings will include a visit from Julian Assange’s father, John Shipton, who will attend our special screening of the new documentary Ithaka on Friday 8 June, which follows his tireless campaign across Europe to save his son. Director Charlie Shackleton will participate in a Q&A session after a screening of his new film The Afterlight, in which fragments of hundreds of films from around the world bring together an ensemble cast of actors with one thing in common: each is no longer alive, their existence preserved solely through these traces of their work. The Afterlight itself exists as a single 35mm film print which will erode every time it screens, eventually disappearing entirely.

Additional special screenings will include a double bill of Dr Who classics Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. Released initially in 1965 and 1966 and directed by Gordon Flemyng, these two films, shot in glorious Technicolor and regenerated in out-of-this-world 4K, are to date the only big-screen outings for the Doctor. Hard Eight, Paul Thomas Anderson’s debut feature will screen in memory of its star Philip Baker Hall, who died in June. Continuing our popular Sound and Vision strand, we will host a special screening of Laurent Garnier: Off the Record, presented by Doc n’Roll Film Festival, and July’s Late Night screening will be 1980s cult classic Purple Rain. Our new Scorsese of the Month programme will continue with a special screening of Raging Bull, introduced by Film Programmer and Researcher Lauren Clarke.

New releases showing on our big screens in July will include Elvis, The Princess, Nitram, Tigers, Futura, Brian and Charles, The Good Boss, McEnroe, A Chiara, Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time, Robust and a re-release of Satyajit Ray's The Big City (Mahanagar). The July programme also provides a second chance for film fans to catch some of our favourite films of the year so far, including Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Quiet Girl, Licorice Pizza and The Worst Person in the World.
