Tivoli Theatre

Built in 1936 as a cinema and theatre, by the late 70s the Tivoli was under threat of demolition but following a long campaign to save the building it reopened in 1993. Today it continues its tradition of showing a mixture of cinema and live performance and sometimes both, with a good deal of events being event cinema screenings. It receives no Lottery or government funding and relies for its revenue entirely on its customers and supporters.

The nearest train station to Wimborne Minster is Poole, nearly eight miles away. The No 3 bus runs a regular service from Poole station to the centre of the town.

  • 4 stars

Charlotte Field (Theron) is US Secretary of State and soon-to-be presidential candidate, Fled Flarsky (Rogen) is a journalist who she used to babysit; romance ensues. The gags are great and Raphael is hilarious as Charlotte’s chief of staff; the romance is less compelling, but it’s nice to see a hero happy to support a…

Fri 11 Oct

£19 / 01202 885566


  • 3 stars
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard
  • UK release: 24 May 2019

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.
