DOME CINEMA

Girl: A transgender girl pursues a career as a ballerina. Inspired by Nora Monsecour, a Belgian trans female dancer that director Lukas Dhont met when he was 18 and she was 15. Stars Victor Polster, in his acting debut. Among the 500 actors — male, female and transgender — who auditioned, the filmmakers could not find one who could both dance and act to their satisfaction. They found Polster in casting for other dance roles.

Lost and Found: Seven linked stories are set in and around the lost-and-found office of an Irish train station. True stories inspired writer/director Liam O Mochain.

Little Woods: Sisters Ollie and Deb slip into the Canada-US, cross-border, drug trade after they fall on hard times following the death of their mother. Stars Tessa Thompson and Lily James.

The Ideal Palace: Film based on the true story of how a French postman, Ferdinand Cheval (1836-1924), built for his daughter the Ideal Palace over a period of 33 years, from stones he picked up on his rounds. It is now classified as a historical monument.

ODEON MULTIPLEX

Toy Story 4: Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) tries to show craft-project-turned-toy (Tony Hale) why he should embrace being a toy. Then on a road trip, Woody makes a detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior.

Yesterday: Jack Malik, a singer-songwriter in an English seaside town, has fast-fading dreams of fame. But after a freak accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to find The Beatles never existed, and he has a catalogue of “new” songs. Stars Himesh Patel, Lily James and, as themselves, Ed Sheeran and James Corden.

Spider-Man: Far From Home: Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a changed world. Stars Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Secret Life of Pets 2: Terrier Max must cope when his owner gets married and has a baby. Voice cast includes Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Dana Carvey and Harrison Ford.

Anna: Beneath Anna’s beauty lies a secret that unleashes strength and skill enabling her to become a feared assassin. Stars Cillian Murphy, Sasha Luss and Helen Mirren. Luc Besson wrote and directed.

Men in Black: International: London gets a branch of Men in Black (MIB), headed by High T (Liam Neeson), who pairs new recruit Agent M (Tessa Thompson) with Agent H (Chris Hemsworth). These agents travel the world dealing with alien attacks, but the organisation may have a mole.

Pavarotti: Documentary directed by Ron Howard about Luciano Pavarotti, produced with the co-operation of the operatic tenor’s estate, and using family archives, interviews and live music footage.

Rocketman: Taron Egerton (Kingsman) stars in the story of how shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight becomes superstar Elton John.
