Jake and Elwood Blues are a pair of petty criminals – but they’ve got good hearts. When they learn the orphanage they grew up in is in trouble, they decide to raise the money to save it. They plan to get their old band back together, and set about tracking down the members. So begins a bizarre and eventful journey, which culminates in one of the most extreme car chases of all time. And the brothers think they just can’t fail because they’re “on a mission from God”. With a fantastic soundtrack and star appearances from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and James Brown, this is one funky road movie. CAST includes Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, James Brown, Cab Calloway & Ray Charles.



Dir John Hughes | 1985 | 92 mins | 15 | Coming of Age, Drama
You might not have thought that detention could lead to a powerful and often hilarious story of lives being changed in the space of an afternoon – but that’s exactly what happens in 80s classic The Breakfast Club. When a bunch of high school kids who would normally have nothing to do with each other are forced to spend their Saturday in detention, will conflicts arise between them? Or will the students realise that while they may seem very different, deep down inside they have plenty in common? Staring Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheey.



This year we are running a groundbreaking ‘sliding scale’ ticket pricing system with the aim of making the festival more affordable to more people. Credit for this idea must go to the folks at the amazing Leeds Queer Film Festival! Here’s how it works: if you want to see Foxtrot on Friday, On a Knife Edge on Saturday or Shoplifters on Sunday (and you definitely should!) you can either buy a standard price ticket through The Poly website or visit the box office in-person on the day and tell us how much you want to pay, based on what you can afford. The price tiers are £2, £4, £6 or £8 and the graphic below gives some basic guidelines about which tier might be right for you, but the choice is entirely yours! So why not come on over and bag yourself an affordable ticket to one, two, or all three of these incredible films?

Did you know that if you are a caregiver you can apply for a CEA Card The Card enables a disabled cinema guest to receive a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them when they visit a participating cinema?  LEARN MORE HERE
