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.

Al Murray: Let's Go Backwards Together

A brand new show from everyone's favourite bigoted landlord, Al Murray, star of Happy Hour. Please only cheer at the irony and stay in your house if you actually hate the French.

  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler
  • UK release: 19 December 2016

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

  • 87 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Otto Bell
  • Cast: Aisholpan Nurgaiv, Daisy Ridley (voice)
  • UK release: 16 December 2016

Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13 year old girl, trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. Crowd-pleasing documentary which skirts some of the deeper issues, and Ridley's monotonous voice-over doesn't help, but only a cold heart would fail to be stirred by Aisholpan's…

The Edge of Heaven

  • 4 stars
  • 2007
  • Germany/Turkey
  • 121 min

  • Directed by: Fatih Akın
  • Written by: Fatih Akın
  • Cast: Nurgül Yeşilçay, Baki Davrak, Tuncel Kurtiz, Hanna Schygulla, Patrycia Ziolkowska, Nursel Köse

A multi-character tableau that delicately interconnects multiple characters across ill communication and violence, this is comparable with Alejandro González Iñárritu's flawed Babel. Unlike in that film, however, Akin refuses to allow melodramatic contrivance to enter the frame – just ardour and atonement, despair and hope.

  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons
  • UK release: 13 January 2017

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine.

Absolutely gobsmacking science fiction thriller boasting cutting edge special effects, rocking action sequences, a smart story and an immensely entertaining cartoon sensibility (the film was storyboarded by comic artist Geoff Darrow).

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson).

  • Cast: Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Edward Everett Horton, Erik Rhodes, Eric Blore, Helen Broderick

A bout of mistaken identity makes Fred and Ginger's path to true love via London and Venice a little more circuitous than they might have liked, but there are plenty of classic Irving Berlin numbers along the way to help them keep their spirits up. Splendid stuff.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Jacques Demy
  • Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Anne Vernon, Nino Castelnuovo.

Romance between a shopgirl and a garage attendant is rekindled when they meet again after years apart. Delightful screen operetta using only sung dialogue, with deftness of camera movement and delicious production design maintaining the interest when the plot creaks.

Steve Steinman's musical mixes comedy with rock music and, naturally, the undead.
