With springtime comes an abundance of colour and variety, and that’s precisely what we are offering this season at Chichester Cinema at New Park.

We present fascinating stories from across the continents (‘The Settlers’ – Chile, ‘The New Boy’ – Australia); interesting characters from wide-ranging walks of life (Amy Winehouse – ‘Back to Black', Rose Dugdale ‘Baltimore’); features released over a span of nearly a century (‘It Happened One Night’ 1934, to ‘Drive-Away Dolls’ 2024); animations (‘Robot Dreams,' ‘Migration’) and documentaries (‘Frida’); plus ballet, theatre, opera and an exhibition. All this to complement emerging Spring colours and warming climes around us.

Our Education Team continuously do us proud, with talk after talk that bring in wonderful audiences eager to discover new knowledge on a variety of filmmakers or film topics. This season we give you talks on the works of the stylish and quirky Coen Brothers; Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-Eda; serial award-winner and very influential Frank Capra; plus the writer Henry James’ women characters on screen.

We kick off a new strand this season called ‘Cult of Cinema.’ Not much explanation is needed here, except that on the last Thursday of the month, you will be treated to the weird, wild and wonderfully cultish films that have left an indelible mark on the silver screen. We would have started with the remastered and reedited ‘Caligula', but that has been postponed until Summer. We also include David Cronenberg’s unforgettable ‘Naked Lunch’ – in association with the Oxmarket Gallery’s exhibit on the Beat Poets.

March is Women’s History Month, and we commemorate and celebrate with films about women and by women. Look out for the classic ‘Mrs. Miniver’ which links to our recent talk ‘Housewives on the Homefront', the documentary ‘Copa 71’ about the first women’s football world cup, ‘Cabrini’ which reveals the unbelievable life of Francesca Cabrini, and ‘Showing Up’ by the truly talented Kelly Reichardt.

Due to popular demand, and simply to give everyone another opportunity to see (or re-see) some of the amazing recent releases, we have brought back some of the Award Season winners such as ‘The Zone of Interest', ‘Poor Things’ and ‘Oppenheimer', as well as audience favourites ‘One Life’ and ‘Wicked Little Letters'. Do get in early for these as recent screenings sold out more often than not.
