There are new venues for you to explore in Manchester this month. Cultureplex’s Mini Cini continues to impress with a cutting edge programme of classics, art house and documentaries, while the luxurious new three-screen Everyman St. John’s caters to cinemagoers looking to unwind in style.
At HOME, audiences should rush to catch Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman on the big screen while they can. The legendary filmmaker has caused a recent ruckus with his comments about superhero flicks, but there is no doubt that this slow-burn, moving meditation on mortality is one of the cinema events of the year.
Here are our picks
