OSCAR season may have come and gone but movie-lovers in Bexhill will be treated to a trio of Oscar-winning and nominated films at the De La Warr Pavilion.

Gravity (12A) landed Alfonso Cuarón a Best Director statue alongside a raft of other prizes including best Best Visual Effects and Best Film Editing.

It tells the story of medical engineer Dr Ryan Stone (played by Sandra Bullock) on her first shuttle mission, alongside veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight. A seemingly routine spacewalk ends in disaster as the shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone and spiraling out into the blackness. It is being shown at the DLWP on Wednesday May 7 at 7.30pm, with tickets costing £5.

On Friday May 12, the winner of the prestigious Best Picture prize, 12 Years A Slave (15) will be on the Bexhill big screen.

Starting at 7.30pm and costing £5, the critically acclaimed film is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.

The Wolf of Wall Street (18) might not have won any Oscars, but it was short-listed for both Best Film and Best Director, while star man Leonard DiCaprio narrowly missed out on the Best Actor award.

Coming to Bexhill on Tuesday May 27 at 7.30pm (tickets £5) the stylish film is set in the early 1990s and follows the rise of crooked broker Jordan Belfort from small-time schemer to the cover of Forbes Magazine,

But with the FBI watching him like a hawk, how long will Belfort and Azoff be able to maintain their elaborate wealth and luxurious lifestyles? Head to the DLPW to find out.
