WITH THE start of what will be a fantastic summer season in cinemas, we have sequels to some much-loved films on their way such as The Incredibles 2, Hotel Transylvania 3 and Mamma Mia 2.

But we start with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (12a) which is released on Friday June 8.

It is set three years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that’s about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of gigantic dinosaurs, all the while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet.

Our next live broadcast is the Royal Ballet performance of the new production of Tchaikovsky’s classical ballet Swan Lake (12a). Broadcast from the Royal Opera House on June 12 and with choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane, this one should be magnificent!

I know how many of you like to book in advance so tickets are available from our website. The broadcast starts at 7.15pm and will be in our accessible Screen 1.

Edie, which was released at the end of May, tells the story of an 83-year-old woman who believes that it is never too late. She decides to pack an old camping bag and leaves her life behind to embark on an adventure she never got to have.

Edie sets off to rekindle fond memories of childhood by climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland. As the story progresses the relationship between the two main characters, who are from vastly different generations, grows and tugs at your heart and mind.

So, if you love a drama which has a range of emotions then this one is definitely worth coming down to the Picture House to watch.

Now it’s time for something a little lighter – Book Club (12a) which was released on the big screens on June 1, an American romantic comedy film directed by Bill Holderman, in his directorial debut, from a screenplay by Holderman and Erin Simms.

It follows the journey of four friends in their 60s: Diane (Diane Keaton) who is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, Vivian (Jane Fonda) who enjoys her men with no strings attached, Sharon (Candice Bergen) who is still working through her decades-old divorce, and Carol (Mary Steenburgen), whose marriage is in a slump after 35 years.

The lives of these four lifelong friends are turned upside down after reading the infamous “50 Shades of Grey”, catapulting them into a series of outrageous life choices. Personally I haven’t read the book myself but what could possible go wrong?

If you’re up for some fun and giggles then I’m sure this one will be right down your street, and they do say laughter is the best medicine!
