MOONLIGHT AT CINEMA FOR ALL

Exquisite, stunning, euphoric. Dazzling. Timeless. Beautiful. These are just some of the words used to describe Moonlight.

Moonlight is the second feature film by director Barry Jenkins and has won over critics, audiences and most recently the Academy who gave it the Oscar for Best Picture.

The film follows the life of Chiron, a young black man who struggles through adolescence as he navigates his sexuality, his relationship with his loving but neglectful mother and frequent abuse from his peers. Not only does Moonlight offer a little-seen perspective in film, it is completely unique in its construction, ebbing away from expectation and exhaling like a cool breeze.

From its first public screening in the mountains at Telluride Film Festival and ascending its way to red carpets and critical acclaim, this film has been on quite a journey. Now Moonlight has arrived here with us on the Cinema For All Booking Scheme, courtesy of Altitude, a distribution partner that we enjoy working with to help bring vibrant and unique films for community cinemas to screen.

Moonlight is not released on DVD and Blu Ray until June and we are thrilled to make it available for community cinemas to screen from 10 March on an early release window.  We are ecstatic to have Moonlight here with us for many reasons but we look forward to you sharing it with your audiences most of all.

Love is Strange Early Window!

The acclaimed romantic drama Love is Strange, starring Alfred Molina, John Lithgow and Marisa Tomei, hits UK cinemas on the 13 February and we are excited to be able to make the film available to community cinema exhibitors as early as 1 March; thanks to new Booking Scheme Partners Altitude Film Distribution.

Ben (Lithgow) and George (Molina) have been together for nearly 40 years and have finally decided to tie the knot. But when George loses his job soon after the wedding Ben and George are forced to sell their flat and move in with their friends of family. George stays on the sofa of some friends downstairs while Ben finds himself in Brooklyn staying with his nephew’s family and sharing a bunk bed with their teenage son. While struggling with the pain of separation Ben and George are further challenged by the inter-generational tensions and difficult living arrangements.

Love is Strange has been warmly received by critics and was recently nominated for four awards at the Independent Spirit Awards including Best Feature, Best Lead Actor and Best Supporting Actor.

Cinema For All members can book the film for DVD or Blu-ray screenings from 1st March here.
