BlacKkKlansman (15)
Jan 22 @ 7:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Spike Lee won the coveted Grand Prix from Cannes for BlacKkKlansman, which tells the astonishing true story of one of the riskiest undercover investigations in American history. It’s an improbable early ‘70s case in which African-American police detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) applied for and was ultimately granted membership to the Ku Klux Klan. Posing as a racist extremist over the telephone, Stallworth infiltrates the KKK’s inner circle, but has his colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), pretend to be him for face-to-face meetings. Whilst remaining an unflinching examination of race relations in 1970s America that still feels bracingly relevant. BlacKkKlansman is also gripping entertaining and funny.

“A blistering return to form for Spike Lee.” The Guardian.

A Hundred Different Words for Love – Foxlowe THEATRE –
Jan 24 @ 7:30 pm

After the huge success here of last year’s “Team Viking”, James Rowland returns with this hilarious, heart-lifting story of romance, despair and friendship. This new show features live music, original songs (and unoriginal emotions) and is set to break hearts and put them back together across the country.

Looking back on a devastating breakup, master storyteller James Rowland shares his quest to survive in a way that every member of the audience can understand.  It has been said that the Eskimo language has some improbably large number of words for ‘snow’; how is it then that we struggle to find the right words to make sense of love?

Both hilarious and heart-lifting, this very personal story of romance, despair and friendship is told with great charm and wit, live music, original songs (and unoriginal emotions) and above all, heartfelt honesty.

‘Bittersweet and carefully crafted storytelling theatre about love, loss and friendship.’ The Stage

‘Utterly engaging.’ Reviews Hub

Feb 12 @ 7:45 pm – 9:30 pm

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own novel, The Children Act is a moving drama following an eminent High Court judge, for whom professional and personal crises collide as she approaches a critical ruling.  Emma Thompson plays Fiona Maye, who is presiding over the family court ruling on the case of a 17-year-old Jehovah’s Witness who is refusing a life-saving blood transfusion.  Richard Eyre directs this nuanced and intriguing drama, immeasurably aided by a stylish and emotionally literate performance from Thompson.

“Emma Thompson’s portrait of a family court judge who lets the world in at the cost of losing her own judgement is acting of the highest order.” Rolling Stone.

Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach (12A)
Feb 13 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

Ken Loach, who has been making socially aware dramas and documentaries for over 50 years, reflects on his often controversial career, with comments from colleagues, friends and family. Successes like Cathy Come Home, Kes and Palm d’Or winning The Wind that Shakes the Barley are matched by tales of projects shelved or pilloried, a stage play cancelled during rehearsals, and a personal tragedy.

“The making of I, Daniel Blake, which brought the 79-year-old Loach out of retirement to rail against punitive Tory austerity policies and their ramifications, forms a central component of this documentary. But the real treats here for fans are the well-chosen clips from his incendiary early work for the BBC: a glimpse of the earthy, sexy energy of Up the Junction; the heartrending rawness of Cathy Come Home.” The Guardian.
