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.

  • UK release: 20 October 2017

  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins
  • UK release: 27 October 2017

Set two years after Age of Ultron, Thor (Helmsworth) joins forces with his duplicitous brother Loki (Hiddleston) to battle Hela, Goddess of Death (Blanchett). Cult Kiwi director Taika Waititi's take on the Marvel universe is askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic, tipping the balance in favour of out-and-out comedy.
