The Big Short - Watch the Trailer
An A-list cast star in a dark true-life satire about four outsiders who profit from the financial crash. In 2005, eccentric yet brilliant hedge fund manager Michael Burry (Christian Bale) spots signs of instability in the US housing market and works out how to make a fortune when the bubble bursts. This attracts the attention of amoral banker Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), who joins forces with self-loathing money manager Mark Baum (Steve Carell) to make a killing. Elsewhere, two rookie investors lure retired trader Ben Rickert (Brad Pitt) back into the game to guide them to untold riches. Adapted from Michael Lewis's non-fiction bestseller The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, Anchorman director Adam McKay's scabrous black comedy reveals the astonishing true story of the cynical analysts who betted against the American economy. Brilliantly played and slickly edited, it tells a complex, potentially rather dry story in a hugely entertaining way.

Welcome to the Lynton Cinema website

There has been cinematograph entertainment in Lynton and Lynmouth since the time of the great war. The Picturedrome opened in 1916, this not being suitable for sound films, was superceded by the BB Cinema in 1930. This closed in 1961 owing to the death of the owner and the films transferred for the next 38 years on a part-time basis to the Lynton Town Hall; after the retirement of the operator it was decided to return a full-time cinema back to Lynton when the grade II listed former Methodist Chapel became available.

An intimate modern picture palace was created in this building, opening in the spring of 2001, seating only 68 persons, comfortable seats with plenty of leg room has been provided, Dolby SR sound, full air conditioning in the summer months and full central heating in the winter, running as near release films as possible and special presentations throughout the year. Full disabled access and toilet is provided.

Lynton with its population of 2,000 people is as far as we know, the smallest town in the country to have a full time cinema.
