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.
- France / Canada
- 89 min
- Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin

- 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.
- Written by: Javier de Frutos
The company of all-male dancers present two new works inspired by life and death, by choreographers Pontus Lidberg and Javier de Frutos.

The Eagle Huntress
- UK / Mongolia / US
- 87 min
- 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 popular folk pop chanteuse, known for her work with Fairground Attraction and often called upon to add her voice to other people's records tours her latest album Vagabond.
The Edge of Heaven
- 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.

- 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). In the future day-to-day life is merely a scam, a matrix camouflaging reality - a…

- US / Taiwan / Mexico
- 161 min
- Directed by: Martin Scorsese
- Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano
- UK release: 1 January 2016
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). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and…
Sat 21 Jan

- 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.
Train to Busan

- 118 min
- Directed by: Yeon Sang-Ho
- Cast: Yoo Gong, Soo-an Kim, Yu-mi Jeong
