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.

Jason Bourne (Damon) is back with a vengeance, literally this time, as information about the death of his father leads him to go up against CIA Director Dewey (Jones) and new nemesis Heather Lee (Vikander).

- 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.

Stand-up comedy show from the veteran Londoner.
