Gala

The Gala can be found in the middle of Durham, a purpose-built theatre to reflect the area's cultural scene. Inside, there's a modern theatre, a cafe/bar, two cinema screens and some conference facilities. The theatre boasts a large mix of theatre, comedy, music, dance and a cinema programme.

Car parking can be found less than a minute away at the Walkergate multistorey, which is cheap after 6pm. The theatre is just ten minutes from Durham train station, and a number of bus routes stop nearby.

The King of Thieves

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

The Little Stranger

  • 3 stars
  • 2018
  • Ireland/UK/France
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lenny Abrahamson
  • Cast: Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter
  • UK release: 21 September 2018

Dr Faraday (Gleeson) returns to Hundreds Hall, which he knew as a boy, to help care for the war-wounded family son (Poulter), but there seems to be a supernatural presence. Gleeson gives a career-best turn as the haunted Faraday but while it’s laudably subtle it’s also narratively inert.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.
