Big Screen drama The Father coming to Vue Thurrock

A GRIPPING selection of newly released films are landing at Vue Thurrock and Newbury this month to be experienced on the Big Screen as they were meant to be seen.

Showing from 11 June, The Father sees Anthony Hopkins play the Oscar-winning role of a mischievous and highly independent man suffering with dementia. As he ages, he refuses all help from his daughter Anne, played by Olivia Colman, yet such help has become essential. Set against the backdrop of a warped perspective, Anne’s father tries to make sense of his changing circumstances.

As his surroundings, and even time itself become distorted, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality. Co-written and directed by Florian Zeller, this film was one of the stand-out films of the awards season and is finally available to watch on the big screen.

Action film Nobody follows a seemingly ordinary man who helps a young woman being harassed by thugs become the target of a vengeful drug lord. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and written by Derek Kolstad, the newly-released thriller stars Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated father.

The thriller sequel, A Quiet Place II is also showing at Vue. Following the dramatic events at home, the Abbott family are forced to face the terrors of the outside world as they venture into the unknown. As they continue to fight for their survival in silence so as not to draw the attention of the extra-terrestrial predators, they head out with only a shotgun and sparse supplies. A Quiet Place II stars Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt with Cillian Murphy and Dijmon Hounsou joining the cast.

Owain Evans, General Manager of Vue Thurrock, said: “We’re thrilled be showing a great selection of highly acclaimed films this month, leading with The Father this weekend.

“It’s great to bring long awaited content to the big screen and it’s experiences like these that our customers have been waiting for. We hope they will be as excited as we are and look forward to returning to the cinema.

“Film-goers can rest assured that they can still sit back, relax and Get Lost in great stories as safely as possible, with physically distanced seating aided by improved online booking, enhanced cleaning, reduced touchpoints throughout all venues, as well as enhanced ventilation systems.”
