  • Written by: Woody Allen
  • Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell
  • UK release: 2 September 2016

The 1930s: Bobby (Eisenberg), a wide-eyed Jewish New Yorker, goes to Hollywood to work for uncle Phil (Carell), where he falls for Phil's spiky secretary Vonnie (Stewart). Storaro's beautiful cinematography and some fine work from Eisenberg can't conceal that this is just one more ho-hum late Woody movie.

With reference to my 3 March comments, although I did not specify the bar and waiting area I am sure that this was understood.

1. Rick Conway3 Mar 2015, 4:26pm5 stars Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre Report

My wife and two friends have been coming to LB Theatre for many years and, in fact, were leaders in the group that saved the cinema when there was a threat to close it. We have always enjoyed the ambience and the staff have all been really great.
But what have you done? Completely changed that ambience into an area that is cold, bare, exceedingly noisy - everybody has to raise their voice several decibels to be heard - and for some almost impossible to have a decent conversation. I have yet to hear a positive comment, only negative.

The great majority of your cinema clientele are middle aged and over and have been the financial mainstay. It appears that this important group were not kept in mind. You may not have the finances, nor the wish to change the décor, but please do something to soften it. At the very least industrial carpeting would be a great help. I look forward to your comments.
