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.

Best (George Best: All By Himself)

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • 92 min
  • Directed by: Daniel Gordon
  • Cast: George Best

A documentary about the great footballer, adroitly framing his rise to fame in the context of the 1958 Munich air disaster and Manchester manager Matt Busby’s European Cup ambitions. However, too many talking heads say too little, and Gordon fails to get enough relevant or frank interviews for it to constitute a…

The Birth of a Nation

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 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.

The Bowie Experience

Tribute to the late, great David Bowie.

Carol

  • 5 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 118 min
  • 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…

Fifty Shades Darker

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 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.

Free Fire

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • France, UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ben Wheatley
  • Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer
  • UK release: 31 March 2016

Boston, 1978: Chris (Murphy) is an IRA member looking to buy guns from Vern (Copley), with the help of go-betweens Justine (Larson) and Ord (Hammer): it soon descends into violence. Copley is very funny and there's some terrific dialogue, but Wheatley's latest sees him fumble the ball, with a threadbare plot that's merely…

High Society

  • 1956
  • US
  • 107 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charles Walters
  • Written by: Philip Barry (play), John Patrick
  • Cast: Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Celeste Holm, Louis Armstrong, John Lund

Classic musical entertainment from the MGM studios, in which a rich bitch plays hard to get with a string of suitors. The plot of Philadelphia Story goes out the window, but with stars like these, style is everything.

  • 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).

The true story of the Amazonian expeditions of British army officer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), which inspired Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Despite good work from Hunnam, Miller as Percy’s plucky wife and Pattinson as his loyal sidekick, it’s a languorous and sometimes confusing story which sometimes becomes The Lost City of…

  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland

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.

  • UK release: 24 February 2017

Massimo (Mastandrea) is a successful journalist whose life has been permanently darkened by the loss of his beloved mother when he was nine. Beautiful yet sentimental drama from veteran director, with Mastandrea well cast and warm performances from Devos and especially Bejo, but it never quite becomes the sum of its parts.

  • UK release: 3 March 2017

Chad (Fassbender) is a cocksure criminal from a tight-knit traveller family, trying to get from under the thumb of his ignorant and paranoid father Colby (Gleeson). Fassbender is as magnetic as ever but the gang, supposed to be fearsome, is beyond shambolic, and Kinnear’s incompetent copper isn’t exactly a worthy rival.
