Bohemian Rhapsody (12A) – Second Screening Sold Out
Apr 23 @ 7:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Due to the early sell-out of tickets for the initial screening, we are delighted to offer a second for this ‘must see’ film, which has since won BAFTAS for Best Actor and Best Sound.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot stomping biopic celebrating Freddy Mercury and Queen’s career, following the meteoric rise of the band through the creation of iconic songs and their near implosion as Mercury’s excesses spiral out of control. Rami Malek gives a commanding performance as the showman facing the battle for his life after his HIV diagnosis, and leading the band in a performance that cemented their legacy.

UK/USA  2018  134 mins   (Director: Bryan Singer)

 

Cinema located on first floor – regrettably no disabled access.

Licensed bar, hot drinks available from 7 pm.

The Man without a Past
Apr 26 @ 7:30 pm

 

One minute you know who you are, where you are and what you are doing. The next minute your mind’s a blank slate… A Finnish Melancomedy.

A new stage adaptation of the Cannes-Award-winning film by legendary film-maker Aki Kaurismaki, one of Finland’s greatest modern storytellers:  produced by New Perspectives Theatre Company.  “Four decades experience of adapting written works for the stage. What some might consider theatrical difficulties New Perspectives revels in as artistic challenges” Reviews Hub

We meet our anti-hero near a shoreline, abandoned with no memory of his name or past life. Taken in by an eccentric community, with a disused shipping container for a home, he begins an accidental romance whilst adapting to his new way of life. But the past doesn’t leave him alone for long…

Featuring a cracking live soundtrack, this part melancholic love story, part deliciously deadpan comedy takes you on one man’s extraordinary journey from anonymity to unexpected salvation.

A professional theatre show brought to us by Live&Local, supported by Arts Council England and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.

Tickets:   £11.00 in advance  (£13.00 on the night);  £6.00 for students.  Tickets available 19 February.

Disability parking at rear of building.

Licensed bar, soft and hot drinks available from 7pm.

Leek SKA Festival 2019
Apr 27 @ 5:00 pm

Leek SKA Festival 2019 – The Skalinskis, Splitters, The Chalk Outlines, Roots to Nowhere, mummyfunk

Formed in 1999 The Skalinskis play a fusion of upbeat dub and ska with a hint of eastern european folk in the mix. In 2019 the band are currently a 6 piece eclectic combo with a tidy beat and a heavy brass section. With 3 albums and years of touring under their belt, the band has honed a live show full of energy that is sure to get you dancing. Their material features driving lyrics, drunken vignettes and adaptations of classic ska/reggae. Guaranteed to Skank up the Dance!

For over a decade, Leicester’s Splitters has been at the forefront of the UK ska scene, dropping dynamite sub ska scorchers and heavy heavy reggae sounds loaded with realness. By mixing the traditional vibes of 1960s skinhead ska with a contemporary edge that speaks of the grit and grime of modern British Life, Splitters have built a reputation as one of the most scorching live acts on the UK circuit.

A Brass Fuelled Ska/Rock ‘n’ Roll Party riot! The Chalk Outlines are a 18 legged Ska Band from West Wales. Formed in 2015 the band has been whipping audiences into a frenzy across their native Wales, The South West and London with their stomping live shows. They’ve played at numerous festivals combined with prestigious support slots for the likes of Bad Manners and the Dualers.

Roots to Nowhere, a 4-piece ska/punk/reggae band from Crewe, Cheshire established in 2009 after the split of former band Empty Pockets. Roots’ songs depict the struggles of the working class and looking at society as a whole, with hard hitting relatable lyrics and music that makes you want to move.

mummyfunk – Happy tunes to make you smile, brought to you with vinyl style. Classic selection.

 

Dress Code: Suit and tie are optional, but be sure to bring your dancing shoes.

Leave No Trace (PG)

Mark Kermode declared this his favourite film of 2018  “a film which just doesn’t put a single foot wrong”. Authorities force a father and his teenage daughter to rejoin society after they have spent years living off-grid in a nature reserve near Portland. A subtle and profoundly empathic drama about a family’s struggle to adjust to ‘normal life’ by Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone).

“Deeply intelligent, complex, finely tuned and observed … it’s a movie that will live with me for a long time” ***** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

USA/Canada  2018 109 mins   Dir:  Debra Granik

Fairport Convention has been making great music for over fifty years.

Credited with originating British folk-rock music, the band has been through many changes but the current members retain a passion for live performance.

Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim: the band has won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award; Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege & Lief ‘The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time’; and their story has been celebrated with a major documentary on BBC Four television.

Fairport Convention features Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.

Whether you are a long-time fan or a newcomer to their music, an evening with Fairport Convention is sure to surprise and delight you.

“Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue… (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.”

Guardian

“Vigorous and confident…the music leapt around the room.”
