Ritz Cinema, Thirsk, Fri 10 Jan to Thu 16 Jan

– The Runaways (12A) Fri 10 Jan, Sat 11 Jan & Sun 12 Jan only at 7.30pm.

The Ritz was privileged to be able to screen a preview of 'The Runaways' last year, but now offer an extended opportunity to see this home grown story of three children who have to flee across the backbone of England, escaping their topsy turvy home life, and accompanied by the family donkey!

There is the added bonus of a personal appearance of the director of the film, Richard Heap, who will take part in a live questions and answers session after the Saturday screening.

– Knives Out (12A) Mon13 Jan to Thu 16 Jan at 7.30pm with a matinée screening at 2.30pm on Wed 15 Jan.

This is a very glossy homage to the golden age detective thriller (think Agatha Christie!) set in a spooky mansion in New England.

The patriarch of the family is found dead, and suicide is presumed, but the investigating detectives are not so certain.

Starring Daniel Craig (as a mysterious and taciturn consulting detective) who sits silently observing the antics of the disfunctional family, and interjecting occasional remarks in a perfect Louisiana drawl. Also starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Chris Evans and Christopher Plummer. A very stylish and compelling film.

– £6, and £5 for Monday, matinées & concessions (cash only, no cards).
