Welcome to our feature What's on at Watermans this week? rounding up the current cinema, theatre and gallery listings on at Brentford's riverside arts centre.

A Bunch of Amateurs

Ageing members of a quintessentially British working-class amateur filmmaking club, 'Bradford Movie Makers' grow old together amid flickering memories and challenging final years.

Clinging to their dreams, and to each other, fuelled by endless cups of tea, this gently comedic, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly speaks to the escapist dreamer in us all and to the enduring power of face-to-face time together, in an increasingly lonely, digital age.

Armageddon Time

From acclaimed filmmaker James Gray, Armageddon Time is a deeply personal story on the strength of family, the complexity of friendship and the generational pursuit of the American Dream. The film features an all-star cast including Anthony Hopkins, Anne Hathaway and Jeremy Strong. 


In the arid Bolivian highlands, Utama follows an elderly Quechua couple who have been living the same daily routine for years. When an uncommonly long drought threatens their entire way of life, Virginio and Sisa must decide whether to stay and maintain their traditional way of life or admit defeat and move in with family members in the city. When their grandson arrives with news it brings their predicament into sharp focus as they confront climate change, the value of tradition, and the meaning of life.

This visually jaw-dropping debut feature by photographer-turned-filmmaker Alejandro Loayza Grisi is shot by award-winning cinematographer Barbara Alvarez.


Living is an adaptation based on Kurosawa's classic film, Ikiru'. It is set in 1953 London, still recovering from WWII. It follows the story of an ordinary man, Williams (Bill Nighy), a veteran civil servant reduced by years of oppressive office routine, to a shadow existence when a medical diagnosis forces him to take stock – and to try and grasp fulfilment in life before it all slips away.

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile

Based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is a live-action/CGI musical comedy that brings this beloved character to life.

When the Primm family moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle - a singing crocodile (Shawn Mendes) who loves baths, caviar and great music, living in the attic of his new home.

Where the Devil Can't go Himself, He Sends a Woman


The real story of Polish biggest fortunes has been given an extraordinary cinematic adaptation. In the '80s Poland was a country ruled by crisis and a sense of hopelessness. Only a few knew how to turn a crisis into a business. It was a golden time for them. How did they know what would bring them money? How did they operate in a country where almost everything was forbidden? Sit comfortably and explore the world of the greatest Polish fortunes. If you wish to have a scale – they made more money than Escobar on cocaine.
