Tully (15)

Tully

DIRECTOR: Jason Reitman

WRITER: Diablo Cody

STARS: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Ron Livingston, Mark Duplass, Emily Haine, Crystal Lonneberg


Marlo is a New York suburbanite who's about to give birth to her third child. Her husband, Ron, is loving and works hard, but remains clueless about the demands that motherhood puts on his wife. When the baby is born, Marlo's wealthy brother hires a nighttime nanny named Tully to help his sister handle the workload. Hesitant at first, Marlo soon learns to appreciate all that Tully does -- forming a special bond with her new, lifesaving friend.


Sharply observed but tenderly realised, Tully brings back the Reitman we knew and loved, represents Cody’s finest work since Juno, and reminds us why Theron deserved that 2004 Oscar. Dan Jolin, Empire

The Bookshop

Director/Screenplay: Isabel Coixet

Stars: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson


Goya award for best film, best director, best original score. Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee.


Florence Green (Emily Mortimer), a free-spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop – the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself. Her activities bring her a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy) who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere.


But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart (Patricia Clarkson), Harborough's vengeful, embittered alpha female who is a wannabe doyenne of the local arts scene.


Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's novel of the same name, this is a rallying call for the power of knowledge to overcome closed-minded existence.

Apparently not, as this four-legged friend proceeds to cause chaos in all aspects of Sarah’s life.

The Breadwinner (12A)

The Breadwinner

Director: Nora Twomey

Writers: Anita Doron (screenplay), Deborah Ellis (screen story)

Stars: Saara Chaudry, Soma Chhaya, Noorin Gulamgaus

Produced in association with Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie


Academy Award Nominee for best animated feature film.


The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive. Equal parts thrilling and spellbinding, The Breadwinner is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.


This gorgeously animated but unflinching tale of a young girl's courage under Taliban rule is a poignant, important reminder about the violence that girls and women face in extreme patriarchies.

King Lear

By William Shakespeare

Director: Ian McKellen


★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ (Daily Telegraph)


Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.


Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.  Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.


Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Royal Ballet Live: Mayerling

Dangerous desires, family secrets and political intrigues twist through every moment of daring choreography in Kenneth Macmillan’s ballet inspired by true events.


Choreography: Kenneth Macmillan

Music: Franz Liszt

Arranged and orchestrated by: John Lanchbery


A celebrated classic of the Royal Ballet repertory at cinemas for the first time, Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf.


From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide. The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballet's many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.

Natalia  Makarova’s  production  of  this  19th-century classic ballet  brings  an exotic  world  of  temple  dancers  and  noble warriors  to  life.


Choreography: Natalia  Makarova  after  Marius  Petipa

Music:  Ludwig  Minkus 

Orchestrated by:  John  Lanchbery


Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’  – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.

National Theatre Live Delayed Cinema Screening

The Madness of George III

by Alan Bennett

Director: Mark Gatiss


Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.


Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.


The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).


It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.


Tickets: Adult £15.30, Student £12.30 (includes a booking charge of 30p)

Accessible seating available by calling the box office

I’m Not Running

by David Hare


I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare, premiering at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

Pauline Gibson has spent her life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a local health campaign. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, a stalwart loyalist in Labour Party politics, she’s faced with an agonising decision.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your piece of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English’. His other work includes Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.
