THE LEOPARD (187 minutes) M

Set shortly before the unification of Italy, Luchino Visconti’s​ lavish 1963 adaptation of the novel by Giuseppe de Lampedusa​ is one of the greatest of costume dramas. Burt Lancaster plays a disillusioned Sicilian aristocrat forced to accept social change and his own mortality as he helps arrange a marriage for his ambitious nephew (Alain Delon). Digitally projected. Astor, tomorrow, 2pm.

IN THE SHADOW OF WOMEN (73 minutes) M

This small-scale story about a pair of married documentary makers (Stanislas Merhar and Clotilde Courau) is faster and lighter than most films by Philippe Garrel, the great melancholic of French cinema. But it has his knack of making everything feel immediate yet timeless, and his conviction that love and betrayal are the central facts of life. Screens as part of the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival. Palace Westgarth, today, 6.30pm.

THE FUTURE (91 minutes) M

Narrated by a crippled cat named Paw Paw, Miranda July’s 2011 cautionary tale for hipsters is couched in her usual faux-naif idiom, but proves at least as poignant and unsettling as it is fey. Hamish Linklater an d July herself play a couple in their mid-thirties counting down the last moments before they’re forced to grow up. 35-millimetre print. ACMI, today, 5pm. Screens with July’s 2001 short Getting Stronger Every Day.

HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE (95 minutes) PG

A glamorous production in CinemaScope and Technicolour, Jean Negulesco’s 1953 romantic comedy now looks like a forerunner to Sex and the City. Betty Grable, Lauren Bacall and, most memorably, Marilyn Monroe star as a trio of gal pals who rent a luxury Manhattan penthouse and set about reeling in wealthy men. Digitally projected. Astor, tomorrow, 7pm. Double feature with Niagara.

THEEB (96 minutes) M

This engrossing adventure story from Jordanian writer-director Naji Abu Nowar takes place in the remote Wadi Rum desert during World War I, and is seen through the eyes of a Bedouin boy (non-professional Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat) who, like the viewer, is partly in the dark about the meaning of what occurs. Selected.
