New Season

We really hope that you like the look of the films on the programme, and that we'll see you at the Alhambra as often as your busy lives permit. Starting with The Squid and the Whale on Sunday, preceded by a short which was equally successful at Sundance: Family Portrait, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Short Film.

So please join us for a glass of wine or juice at 4.15 on Sunday if you can, and we'll look forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces and a few new ones, no doubt.

Extreme Film: Research Needs Your Help

A team at Aberystwyth University is researching audience responses to some of the most explicit and controversial depictions of sexual violence ever to reach British screens - and they need your help. The study, which is being funded by the BBFC, aims to get beyond the press debates, and find out what real viewers think and feel about five films: À Ma Soeur, Baise-Moi, Irreversible, Ichi the Killer, and House on the Edge of the Park.

Visit to find out more, and to take part in the online questionnaire.

Autumn 2006 Programme

The new programme is now available. There are too many films to talk in detail about them all - you'll have heard about Ken Loach's The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Almodovar's Volver and Gavin Hood's Tsotsi already, but we're sure that you'll find the quality of the rest just as impressive, whether from Eastern Europe, the USA or Japan. What a fine collection to look forward to!
