Now Showing: Friday 20 May – Thursday 26 May 2011

Park Circus supplies films for public screening around the world, with titles for the next four weeks listed on our Now Showing page. Each week we highlight a selection coming up in the next seven days.

  • Vienna’s Filmarchiv Austria is the place to be this coming week for fans of offbeat Westerns and spy dramas. First up on Saturday 21 and Wednesday 25 May is Sam Peckinpah’s Major Dundee, starring Richard Harris and Charlton Heston in the story of a Union officer in charge of a jail in the Southwest where the prisoners become part of the Union troops against renegade Apaches. Then on Monday 23 and Thursday 26 May there’s Michael Anderson’s 1966 Cold War Thriller, The Quiller Memorandum, in which Quiller (George Segal) is sent to Berlin on the trail of a new generation of Nazis
  • In Italy, the Museo Nazionale del Cinema screens Peter Bogdanovich’s recently restored director’s cut of The Last Picture Show on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 May. This US coming-of-age drama starring Jeff Bridges and Cybil Shepherd, received rave reviews on its recent UK release and deserves to be seen on the big screen
  • Filmoteca Espanola in Spain will show to classics from 1976 between Wednesday 25 May and Wednesday 1 June (check website for screening times): Martin Scorsese’s newly restored Taxi Driver and Brian De Palma’s Obsession. Robert De Niro gives a memorable performance as a man being driven to violence by modern society in Taxi Driver, while De Palma’s psychological thriller sees Cliff Robertson star as a husband who believes he has killed his wife and daughter, only to meet a woman who looks uncannily like his wife in Italy
  • In the UK, three very different Park Circus-licensed titles come to the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle on Sunday 22 May: Francis Ford Coppola’s classic mob drama, The Godfather, Stephen Frear’s comedy-drama, My Beautiful Laundrette and Pixar’s latest entry into the Toy Story franchise, 2010’s Toy Story 3
