A 50th anniversary re-release of one of Dustin Hoffman’s most iconic roles will be shown at the Curzon cinema this week.

In The Graduate (15) the young and innocent Ben Braddock (Hoffman) is seduced and exploited by an older woman after returning to his family home in California.

The Graduate will be shown at the Curzon on Saturday and will run until Tuesday.

New comedy is also on offer this week in the outrageously funny Girls Trip (15) which sees four former college friends reunite to embark on a trip to the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

As we enter the final few weeks of the summer holidays, the Curzon is continuing to run two of the latest animations – Despicable Me 3 (PG) and The Emoji Movie (U) for the whole family to enjoy.

The Curzon’s BAFTA Debuts season, which celebrates BAFTA-winning directors’ first films, continues with Red Road (18).

Directed by Andrea Arnold, the film follows a CCTV operator who spends day after day viewing a rough Glasgow neighbourhood through cameras.

She becomes fascinated by Clyde (Tony Curran), a former convict, but when she dreams up a scheme to seduce him the reason for her desire becomes crystal clear.

The Curzon and the Times have teamed up once again to offer one lucky reader two tickets to see The Graduate.
