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)
- 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
- 120 min
- 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.
- 118 min
- 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…
The pop troubadour who thanked his lucky stars in the 70s is experiencing a revival.
The first lady of the British musical sings songs from the nation's favourite musicals and a smattering of hit pop songs including 'Memory', 'Closest Thing to Crazy', 'Cry Me A River' and 'Je Ne Regrette Rien'.
Fifty Shades Darker
- 118 min
- 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.

Thu 12 Oct
- France, UK
- 90 min
- 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…
- 107 min
- 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.

Sat 8 Jul

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).

- UK release: 24 March 2017
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…
Pop icon, Bond singer and 1969 winner of the Eurovision Song Contest whose singing career spans six decades.

- Written by: Nicholas Stoller
- Cast: Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Danny Trejo, Stephen Kramer Glickman
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.
- 131 min
- Directed by: Marco Bellocchio
- Cast: Bérénice Bejo, Valerio Mastandrea, Emmanuelle Devos,
- 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.
A selection of jazz performed by this classy vocalist and star of the Welsh jazz scene.

- Cast: Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson, Lyndsey Marshal, Rory Kinnear
