PARENT AND BABY SCREENING FOR CHILDREN UNDER ONE YEAR OLD ONLY. NO BABY? NO ENTRY.

LIGHT AND SOUND LEVELS ARE OPTIMISED FOR THE BENEFIT OF PARENT AND BABY AND, WHERE POSSIBLE, THE FILM WILL BE SCREENED WITH SUBTITLES SO THE PLOT CAN BE FOLLOWED REGARDLESS OF THE WEE BAIRNS’ GURGLING!

"The Big Sick finds plots by losing them. That’s its genius. One moment we are in an ethnic satire; the next a romcom; the next a hospital comedy-drama. But that’s existence."
★★★★★
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

"Actor Kumail Nanjiani breaks out with an autobiographical girlfriend-in-a-coma comedy that signals his arrival to the top."
★★★★★
- Joshua Rothkopf , Time Out

"A comedy with heart and soul to spare."
★★★★
- Mark Kermode, Observer

"Edgy and hilarious, Nanjiani and Gordon’s true story of cross-cultural love is a Trump-baiting marvel that’s worth the hype."
★★★★
- Jimi Famurewa, Empire

" One of the glories of the film is its ability to find comic details in the most bleak and oppressive situations."
★★★★
- Geoffrey Macnab, Independent

"The film is a hoot. It’s a hit. It’s a smash."
★★★★
- Kevin Maher, Times

"A hugely enjoyable, lovable comedy."
★★★★
- Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"The funniest film of the year."
- Variety

- "Easily the best rom-com of the decade."
- Nerdist
