Guillermo del Toro’s beautiful, romantic fairy tale centres on mute Elisa (the superb Sally Hawkins), who, although she has close friendships with neighbour Giles (a reliably excellent Richard Jenkins) and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer), suffers from loneliness. When the mysterious corporation for which she works acquires an ‘asset’ in the form of an amphibian humanoid, guarded by the sadistic Strickland (an especially bug-eyed Michael Shannon), she is drawn to the creature, gaining its trust as the two ultimately fall in love and search for a way to be together.

There will be Open Captioned (OC) screenings at 13.00 on Tuesday 20th and 20.30 on Monday 26th.

Don’t forget we now schedule weekly.
