26 June - meet at 12.50 for the 13.00 showing

Our June film (at the UGC) is Isle of Dogs, directed by Wes Anderson (who also made The Grand Budapest Hotel). 
Unusually for us, it’s a cartoon, or to be precise a stop-motion animated film*, set in a futuristic Japan where dogs have been banished to an offshore island. A twelve year old boy sets off in search of his lost pet with the help of other canine exiles.
The dogs are voiced by an array of distinguished actors: Bryan Cranston plays Chief, the leader of the main gang, with Edward Norton as Rex, Bill Murray as Boss and Jeff Goldblum as Duke.
Other famous voices include Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Yoko Ono and Greta Gerwig.

 Running time: 1h42

Happy summer holidays to all!

N.B. Possible outing in July.  We don't usually meet in the summer break, but Mamma Mia II is due out around the middle of the month, so if you're interested watch this space!  

Unfortunately we find we can’t organise a cinema trip on 24 July.  Apologies to anyone who had put the date in their diary.
