Showroom Cinema rounds out the year with Highlights of 2023

In that strange time between Christmas and New Year we take stock of the past year. For Showroom, that’s all the amazing films we’ve screened!

To round out 2023, we are selecting just a few of the best - the ones that made us laugh, cry and everything in between – so you can catch them before the ball drops.

BARBENHEIMER was the cinema event of the year (if not the decade). People poured back into screens across the country, and we had a great time hosting this summer’s weirdest crossover. So, we’re doing it again! Catch Barbie and Oppenheimer, back-to-back on Sat 30th December.

Greta Gerwig’s cultural phenomenon Barbie finds Barbie and Ken having the time of their lives in the seemingly perfect Barbie Land. However, when they take a trip to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans. 

Oppenheimer is a thrilling epic, following physicist J Robert Oppenheimer, and his development of the atomic bomb during the Manhattan Project. Christopher Nolan thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of an enigmatic man, who must risk destroying the world if he wants to save it. 

Both are likely to be huge Oscar contenders, so catch them on the big screen while you’ve got a chance. 

Returning to screens from 26th Dec is future-classic Rye Lane. It’s a modern, British, rom com about two young people falling in love and finding themselves in the process. Dom (David Jonsson) and Yas (Vivian Oparah) meet in an unlikely situation, before embarking on a day of non-stop serendipity around South London.  

We bring back Wes Anderson’s latest smash hit, Asteroid City, from 27th December. Wes uses a warm, pastel pallete to paint the vacant1950s town. An enormous cast of characters descend for the Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention, only for it to be spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events. 

Enchanting our screens once more, from 28th Dec, is Celine Song’s spectacular, debut-feature Past Lives. In this wistful romantic drama, two deeply-connected friends reconnect for a week in New York, many years after their childhood in Korea. 

Finally, the greatest concert film of all-time, Stop Making Sense, returns on Boxing Day. Back in September, theatregoers were dancing in the aisles to the infectious pop of Talking Heads. Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs) captures the band at their most electric. Also screening New Year’s Eve, it’ll be a groovy send-off to 2023.

Tickets are available now.
