Captivating Polish oddity with a labyrinthine plot involving the discovery of a book which reveals all manner of beguiling tales-within-tales. This cult-classic had a significant influence on Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, who funded it's long overdue restoration.

Cary Grant stars in this delightful screwball comedy about a divorced couple who, through misadventure, decide they are best for each other.

Feat. Anthony Newley
An unpredictable, wildly inventive comedy where an actor (Anthony Newley) walks off the set of a banal sit-com and into an absurd fantasy world of his own imagination. Hugely influential in its time, this lives up to its reputation as a surrealist classic.

Dir. Orson Welles
Feat. Orson Welles, Keith Baxter, John Gielgud
Orson Welles' late-career masterpiece in which one of the Bard's great supporting characters Falstaff is given his due through a series of picaresque adventures.
