Public Service Broadcasting, Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Tuesday, Ironworks, Inverness, Thursday

BFI London Film Festival, Glasgow Film Theater and Edinburgh Filmhouse, from Wednesday
No need to travel to London for this year’s London Film Festival. Highlights from this year’s program will be screened at both the GFT and the Edinburgh Filmhouse. Beginning with Matthew Warcus’ big-screen version of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical (GFT, Wednesday; Filmhouse, Thursday), the two theaters will offer a preview of cinematic delights such as Park Chan-wook’s new thriller Decision to Leave, Martin McDonagh’s latest The Banshees of Inisherin, starring Colin Farrell and Brendon Gleeson, and Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion, its sequel to his glorious Knives Out murder mystery. But given the threat hanging over the Roe v Wade decision, Phyllis Nagy’s abortion drama Call Jane, starring Sigourney Weaver and Elizabeth Banks, may, sadly, be the most timely film at this year’s festival.
Craig Hill, Joan Knight Theatre, Perth, Friday
