Annie (Wallis) leads a group of multi-racial foster kids in Harlem; when grumpy magnate Will Stacks (Foxx) saves her from being run over, he's persuaded to become her guardian. Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) has real screen presence, but it's largely forgettable.

Maxine Peake As Hamlet

  • 12A

From its sell-out run at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre comes this unique and critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare's tragic Hamlet. In this stripped-back, fresh and fast-paced version, BAFTA nominee Maxine Peake creates a Hamlet for now, giving a performance hailed as "delicately ferocious" by The…

  • Cast: Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith, Kristin Scott-Thomas
  • UK release: 21 November 2014

Mathias (Kline), a penniless New Yorker, travels to Paris to claim the apartment bequeathed to him by his father, except that 92-year-old Mathilde (Smith) and her daughter Chloe (Scott Thomas) already live there.

The Penguins of Madagascar

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare
  • UK release: 5 December 2014

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of…

  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton

Vera (Vikander) is a wilful and intelligent English girl; when her friend Victor (Morgan), fiancé Roland (Harington) and brother Edward (Egerton) go off to fight in WW I, she follows them to be a nurse. Sparing and respectful adaptation of Brittain's 1933 memoir; tasteful rather than innovative, it still packs a punch.

  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 123 min
  • 12A

  • UK release: 1 January 2015

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.

1. Wilf James16 Jan 2013, 2:03am Report

I wish to obtain information about an event that took place some years ago at the Wyllyotts Centre.
There was a concert organised by the Rotary Club with the Mid Herts Jazz Ochestra on Wednesday 20th November. (The year isn't specified on the programme I have.)
I think that it was 1985 but it could have been 1974 or 1991. These three years all have the 20th November as a Wednesday.
My reason for asking is that I have just taken over the job of publicity officer for the Mid Herts Jazz Orchestra and I am try to gather what information I can about the history of the orchestra. It was founded by the jazz musician Eddie Harvey in 1963. The orchestra is still going strong and gives concerts on the second Monday each month (except in August) at the sports pavilion in Sandridge.
If you have a copy of the same programme you will note that the telephone numbers are missing the 1 after the 0.
The main heading on the programme is:
THE EXCITING SOUNDS OF THE BIG BANDS
There is a useful bit of the history of the orchestra in the programme
I would be obliged if you can tell me anything about this concert or any other concerts given by the orchestra in the Wyllyotts Centre.
Thank you for taking the time to read this request.
