BABY FACE (1933) + DISCUSSION at The Cinema Museum (22 JAN 19:30):

  • Women & Cocaine Presents (a new film night celebrating the fierce & liberated women of Pre-Code cinema): Barbara Stanwyck plays Lily Powers, brought up by her sleazy single father in an even sleazier bar somewhere in the sticks. When he dies and she is left alone, her mentor advises her to use her feminine powers and go to the big city.

THE CALLER + INTRO at The Castle Cinema (22 JAN 21:00):

  • Science Fiction Theatre presents: Under the guise of using her phone to call a repair truck, a mysterious stranger (Malcolm McDowell) convinces a lone woman (Madolyn Smith) to let him in to her isolated cabin in the woods. But all is not what it seems, and when his cover story begins to fall apart, the pair engage in an increasingly tense and bizarre series of mind games…

CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? + SCREENTALK with Richard E Grant at Barbican (22 JAN 20:15):

  • An endlessly entertaining character study with an Oscar®-worthy performance from Melissa McCarthy as celebrity biographer-turned-forger Lee Israel.
