More great new films to see at Northampton Filmhouse, along with special Shockwaves previews and the new Bond movie

More great films are coming up at Northampton Filmhouse, which continues to show the best of independent cinema along the pick of new mainstream releases. Highlights for the coming weeks include inspirational Irish drama Herself, rock opera Annette and a preview screening of The Bright Side, before the long-awaited new Bond film No Time to Die arrives from Thursday 30 September.

New films screening from Friday 24 September include spectacular rock opera Annette, starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, directed by Leos Carax with screenplay and music from pop legends Ron and Russell Mael (Sparks). Another highlight is Herself, an inspiring and moving story of female strength and community, directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!, The Iron Lady). Cathy Brady’s blazing debut Wildfire (screening from 25 September) tells the tale of two estranged sisters coming together to make sense of their past.

In addition to the exclusive preview of Gagarine on Wednesday 22 September, the Shockwaves season of debut films continues with a very special preview of life-affirming Irish comedy-drama, The Bright Side, on Wednesday 29 September. This emotionally resonant debut from Ruth Meehan is based on comedian Anne Gildea’s memoir I’ve Got Cancer, What’s Your Excuse? Following on from the popular preview screening earlier this month, sharply observed comedy of age tale Sweetheart will return to the Filmhouse in October.

The Filmhouse’s next classic slot on Saturday 25 September features John Huston’s film noir The Maltese Falcon, which sees Humphrey Bogart entangled in a dangerous web of crime and intrigue.

The Encounters Film Festival 2021 Selection will be screened on Sunday 26 September. This programme is a brand new showcase of short films from the 2021 festival, to accompany the online edition of Encounters.

Then, with screenings from Thursday 30 September until Thursday 14 October, Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in Cary Joji Fukunaga’s long-awaited blockbuster, No Time To Die, which sees 007 led on the trail of a mysterious villain who is armed with dangerous new technology.

Tickets for No Time To Die start from £11.50 during the first week of release, with premium tickets and packages available. For most screenings of other titles, tickets are priced at £10.50 with concessions available for over 60s, under 14s, students, receivers of Universal credit and disabled patrons. Monday to Thursday, tickets for 16 to 25 year olds are just £5.50 for standard screenings. Tickets must be booked in advance and will be sent as e-tickets.
