Eden Court Theatre and Cinema

Hosting everything from opera to film to theatre to live music, Eden Court also has a rich life as a space for performing arts classes (more than 60 run each week), offering lessons for dancers, actors and performers of all ages and abilities. The multi-arts venue was built in the mid 70s, making it the largest scale venue in the region, with additional performance space – another theatre, two cinema screens, two dance and drama studios and three floors of dressing rooms – completed during a renovation in 2007. The building also houses the Eden Court Restaurant, which offers a lunch, dinner and bar menu.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Nate Parker
  • Cast: Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Jackie Earle Haley, Penelope Ann Miller, Gabrielle Union
  • UK release: 20 January 2017

Nat Turner (Parker) is a slave in early 19th century Virginia, used by his owners to encourage other slaves to submit, but who is plotting an uprising of his own. Despite the controversy surrounding Parker, the film deserves to be seen: angry, dramatic and bittersweet, it's a story that needs telling.

  • 1h 58min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Todd Haynes
  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler

Manhattan, 1952: young department store clerk and aspiring photographer Therese (Mara) meets sophisticated older woman Carol (Blanchett), and feels inexplicably giddy. Achingly beautiful, slow-burning study of lesbian romance and female strength in the face of adversity, with outstanding performances from Blanchett and…

Dunkirk

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity…

  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Thomas Lilti

Jean-Pierre Werner (Cluzet) is a country doctor devoted to the people and the area he serves; when he's diagnosed with an inoperable tumour he reluctantly accepts the help of recently graduated doctor Nathalie (Denicourt).

  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Collinson
  • Written by: Troy Kennedy Martin
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Noël Coward, Benny Hill, Raf Vallone, Tony Beckley, Rossano Brazzi

Seminal 60s caper heist movie. Jailbird Caine takes his self-preservation society of criminals to Rome to rob the place silly. Altogether now: 'You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!' Great action, great tunes, a classic (kind of).

  • 15
  • Directed by: Hannes Holm
  • Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün, Tobias Almborg
  • UK release: 30 June 2017

Ove (Lassgård) is an ageing, widowed grump who’s the self-appointed prefect of a small community; his attempts at suicide are continually frustrated by his new neighbours, mouthy Iranian immigrant Parvaneh (Pars) and her family. Shamelessly feelgood, with a welcome streak of black comedy, it’s predictable but heartwarming.

  • Cast: Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons

Bodi (Wilson) is a guard dog who takes up rock music, inspired by British pop star Angus Scattergood (Izzard). Weird and not very wonderful kids’ animation with weak jokes and few recognisable songs; it has a professional sheen but the script is a dog’s dinner.

Storks used to deliver babies, but now they run an Amazon-style delivery service; then ambitious stork Junior (Samberg) and colleague Tulip (Crown) have to deliver an actual baby. Colourful animation and some amusing voice work can't fix the gigantic plot holes, which will leave both parents and kids scratching their heads.
