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.

Fifty Shades Darker

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 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.

The Lego Batman Movie

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Garth Davis

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.
