AS lockdown enters its ninth week, it’s probably fair to say that we’re all watching a lot more TV and movies than ever before.

Thankfully, there’s more than enough content across a range of streaming platforms to keep us all occupied - but whether you’ve been delighting in the bizarre world of Tiger King on Netflix, or re-watching Star Wars for the 100th time on Disney Plus, it’s always good to try something new.

With that in mind, we asked Hexham’s Forum Cinema’s manager, David Nixon, to recommend his top choices for lockdown movies available to stream.

Here are some of the suggestions he made.

The Conversation - BBC iPlayer: Created between The Godfather in 1972 and its sequel in 1974, The Conversation is Francis Ford Coppola’s paranoid mystery thriller. The film which is partly a homage to Michelangelo Antonioni’s art-movie classic Blow-Up, sees Gene Hackman star as a surveillance expert who faces a moral dilemma when his sound recordings reveal a potential murder.

Four Lions - All 4: Not for the easily offended, this pitch black comedy from British satirist Chris Morris tells the story of a group of young Muslim men living in Sheffield. The smart satire sees the men decide to wage jihad, and hatch an inept plan to become suicide bombers.

The Wizard of Oz - Netflix: A real case of old but gold here, and not just because of the road. Cited by many as one of the greatest films of all time, this classic sees Judy Garland star as Dorothy Gale, a young Kansas farm girl who dreams of a land “somewhere over the rainbow.” Characterised by its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, musical score, and memorable characters, the film has become an American pop culture icon.

If Beale Street Could Talk - Amazon Prime Video: Following on director Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning success with 2016’s Moonlight, his third film is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple’s unbreakable bond and the African-American family’s empowering embrace. The film honours its source material (James Baldwin’s novel of the same name) with immersive visuals and a lush soundtrack.

NT Live: Barber Shop Chronicles – YouTube: Directed by Olivier award-winning director Bijan Sheibani, this heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new play leaps from a barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra.
