Big-name blockbusters include WidowsBohemian Rhapsody and The Old Man & the Gun, which features a career-best turn from Robert Redford. Fans of le cinéma français have plenty to look forward to with a wide range of films from this year's French Film Festival, and horror fans will love our special John Carpenter retrospective alongside new releases Suspiria and Anna and the Apocalypse. Young audiences have plenty to choose from, including Smallfoot and Ralph Breaks the Internet, and we've got Christmas covered with It's a Wonderful Life, Home Alone, and Die Hard

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

"What struck me as I put together the new films in this November – December cinema guide was how many of them tell stories about unconventional bonds, the deep connections we all look for despite the circumstances of our lives. In Steve McQueen’s Widows a group of strangers must learn to trust each other with their lives to survive; Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Shoplifters shows us a non-traditional family living off the grid; and The Old Man & The Gun is about romance late in life. But probably the most astonishing example has to be Three Identical Strangers, the true-life story of triplets separated at birth and reunited as adults, whose lives were changed forever by the adoption agency who controlled their fates.

Relationships are key to our work here at DCA too and this season we’re working in partnership with two organisations to bring special events to Dundee for this guide. The Royal Scottish Geographical Society will be joining us to host the Scottish premiere of Alex Bescoby’s documentary about Burma’s lost royal family We Were Kings, and the University of Dundee presents an examination of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as part of its Being Human Festival of the Humanities.

As we face uncertain times ahead while our nation grapples with the changes Brexit will bring, our commitment to show wonderful European cinema on our screens remains a constant. This year’s French Film Festival brings a range of titles showcasing the very best in new releases as well as well loved classics. There are films which will tickle your funny bones, others that will break your heart, and some that will simply delight you with their joie de vivre.

And for those of you planning your holiday activity well in advance (it can never be too early to start thinking about Christmas) we’ve included advance details of our seasonal film screenings in this guide: festive jumpers at the ready!"

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!
