BY NOW you’ll probably have read that Cineworld has temporarily mothballed its UK cinemas following the postponement of the latest James Bond film.

Odeon are set to switch many of their cinemas to weekend only opening; I’ve been to both chains and our local cinema, Kinokulture, lately, and have been impressed at the precautions and safety measures in place. So if you’ve held off going to the flicks lately I’d urge you to give it a try, I think you’ll be impressed.

This weekend at Kinokulture sees arthouse hit, The Roads not Taken, starring Javier Bardem and Elle Fanning, screening on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s an unusual looking film with what’s often called a ‘nonlinear’ narrative, which just means that not everything is presented in chronological order.

Bardem plays a man suffering from an unnamed mental illness with Fanning as his despairing daughter.

This won’t be for everyone, but if you’re up for something a little different I’d recommend trying it. Tickets from

Next Tuesday, The Runaways starring Mark Addy (The Full Monty) and Tara Fitzgerald (Brassed Off). This is a contemporary small scale Yorkshire set family drama about three children crossing Yorkshire to find their mother.

We’re used to ‘road movies’ being set in America, but The Runaways wears its roots proudly, and it may feature more moors than roads, but at heart still concerns people making a journey that’s both physical and emotional.

Two donkeys get caught up in the shenanigans leading to an unusual train journey, there’s music from Sheffield’s wonderful Richard Hawley, and I predict a warm glow by the end. Bafta winning actor Molly Windsor plays the eldest daughter. Tickets from
