Summer blockbuster season is upon us, bringing some of the most anticipated films of the year! We're thrilled to be showing Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood exclusively on 35mm - if you've never seen a film on film, now is your chance. Alongside Tarantino's latest we have Jim Jarmusch's deadpan horror-comedy The Dead Don't Die, Ari Aster's terrifying Midsommar, and the semi-autobiographical drama Pain and Glory from master fimmaker Pedro Almodóvar.

Our summer family film is Disney's wonderful reimagining of The Lion King, with Subtitled, Relaxed and Bring a Baby screenings all on offer. Vintage film fans are in luck with a wealth of modern and cult classics on offer: return to Vietnam with Apocalypse Now: Final Cut, take the red pill and go down the rabbit hole in The Matrix, scare yourself silly with Jaws, delve into spycraft and manipulation with Notorious, and feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when watching Don't Look Now.

 The Guide is introduced by Head of Cinema, Alice Black:

"One of the most anticipated films of the summer, Quentin Tarantino’s latest offering is a perfect summer movie. Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood is full of energy, laughs, buddies and baddies, and the kind of bravado filmmaking we’ve come to love from this director. It is also, without a shadow of a doubt, the kind of film that begs to be seen in a cinema, on the big screen, with an audience, something that we know Quentin feels as passionately about as we do. It is a real thrill to be able to say Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood will be shown at DCA exclusively on 35mm. We can’t wait to fire up our Centurys, hear the whirr of the projectors in the booth and experience the magic of celluloid again. If you’ve never seen a film on film, now is your chance!

Another master of cinema, Pedro Almodóvar, also returns to our screens with an introspective, tender look at the life of an artist facing up to his regrets and the past loves who shaped him. A semi-autobiographical tale, Pain and Glory is told with warmth, a lush soundtrack and the most amazing Spanish colour palette that has the warmth of Pedro’s cinematic embrace woven all the way through it.

Alongside these two greats of the cinema world, we say goodbye to another one – Agnès Varda – with her last film, a documentary about her life’s work. For those of you who know her already, you will be reminded of her genius and for those of you who don’t, this is a great introduction to one of the best. A true trailblazer, she is also insightful and charming. Spending time in her presence one last time is an absolute privilege.

Whatever you select out of this feast of great movies we’ve put together for you – be it a family trip to see The Lion King, a mates outing to re-watch The Matrix, a quiet afternoon with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman sizzling on the screen in Notorious, or cheering on Robert The Bruce – we are ready and waiting to welcome you! Celebrate summer cinema going in the best possible way at DCA."

We look forward to seeing you at the cinema soon. Don't forget to tell us which films you're enjoying using the hashtag #helloDCA - you could win free cinema tickets!
