Thank you to everyone who has visited us recently, it's been so good to welcome you back! We thought you might like to hear about some new, exciting films and events coming up...
Tomorrow, join us for a free, family-friendly, outdoor performance by the curiously quirky Kitsch & Sync.
Next Tuesday - we're hosting, live on Zoom, a tender autobiographical performance of Unfamiliar at Home.
Screening in our Cinemas this weekend is thrilling drama Shirley, moving documentary The Painter and the Thief and dark comedy Patrick. From next Friday, we're bringing you #MadeinWales Concrete Plans, David Fincher's black and white feature Mank, and magical animation Wolfwalkers.
We're extending the run of both of our current exhibitions until January, so there's plenty of time to catch Mel Brimfield's multi-media works in the Gallery or paintings by Chilean artist Francisco Rodriguez in the Caffi Bar.
If you'd like to eat or drink with us, we encourage you to book a table in advance. For the latest information on Food & Drink, please click here.
