Also showing: Chasing Ice, TinkerBell and the Secret of the Wings, and Neil Young Journeys
Sunday 16 December 2012
Chasing Ice (76 mins, 12A)
Even the most perverse and pig-headed of climate-change deniers – such as Charles Saatchi – should be shaken by this apocalyptic documentary, which follows James Balog as he sets up time-lapse cameras in the world's coldest places. His mission is to record how fast the Earth's glaciers are receding – and his stunning pictures show them receding at a terrifying rate.
TinkerBell and the Secret of the Wings (75 mins, U)
JM Barrie purists may flinch at the characterisation of Tinker Bell as a Californian cheerleader, but this nicely animated adventure will thrill five-year-old girls.
Neil Young Journeys (87 mins, PG)
Jonathan Demme directs an ear-meltingly loud concert film. Fair-weather fans beware: it's a one-man show, without a backing band, and most of the songs are from 2010's Le Noise album.
