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.

Beauty and the Beast

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad
  • UK release: 17 March 2017

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Birth of a Nation

  • 4 stars

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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.
