National Theatre Live: Hangmen

From 14 May, 2016

★★★★★
‘The best new play of the year.’ – Daily Telegraph

★★★★★
‘Deliriously funny.’ – Sunday Times

Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they’ve abolished hanging?

Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.



Exhibition on Screen – Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse

From the Royal Academy of Arts, London. In cinemas 28 May 2016.

Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art but he was not alone. Artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative exhibition from The Royal Academy, London.

Exhibition on Screen- Renoir: Revered and Reviled

From the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia. In cinemas 16 April 2016.

He is one of the most fiercely debated artists and yet one of the most influential. Picasso collected more Renoirs than any other artist. Matisse revered him. Monet too. He was an artist that was instrumental in creating the Impressionist movement and then totally rejected it and went in a completely new direction – with extraordinary results. The Barnes Collection in Philadelphia has more Renoirs than any other gallery in the world and it’s there that the search begins to tell the remarkable story of this remarkable artist.


Exhibition on Screen – Goya: Visions of Flesh and Blood

From the National Gallery, London. In cinemas 26 March 2016.

Francisco Goya is Spain’s most celebrated artist and considered the father of modern art. Not only a brilliant observer of everyday life and Spain’s troubled past, he is a gifted portrait painter and social commentator par excellence. Goya takes the genre of portraiture to new heights and his genius is reappraised in a landmark exhibition at The National Gallery, London. Through a great collection of unique works and Goya’s letters, we reflect upon the man himself and the world he painted. Goya is an artist whose powerful vision and technical prowess makes him one of the most admired icons of the artistic world.

Sherlock – The Abominable Bride

Sherlock – The Abominable Bride

In cinemas 2 January 2016

Choose your cinema!


“Dr John Watson, meet Mr Sherlock Holmes.”

We’ve been here before  - but what if this wasn’t the modern day but the late Victorian period? What if the world’s most famous consulting detective and his best friend lived in a Baker Street of steam trains, hansom cabs, top hats and frock-coats?

Welcome to ‘Sherlock’ in 1895!

Some things, though, remain reassuringly the same. Friendship, adventure and especially, MURDER…

Why is Thomas Ricoletti a little surprised to see his wife dressed in her old wedding gown?  Because, just a few hours before, she took her own life…

Mrs Ricoletti’s ghost now appears to be prowling the streets with an unslakeable thirst for revenge. From fog-shrouded Limehouse to the bowels of a ruined church, Holmes, Watson and their friends must use all their cunning to combat an enemy seemingly from beyond the grave and the final, shocking truth about…the Abominable Bride!

Sherlock, starring Academy Award Nominee Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Emmy Award Winner Martin Freeman as John Watson, is a global phenomenon. The show has been sold to over 240 territories across the world, won 12 BAFTAs, seven Emmys and a prestigious Peabody Award as well as accolades at the Edinburgh TV Festival and the Television Critics Association in the US.

Sherlock – The Abominable Bride will see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprise their roles as Holmes and Watson in a one-off episode set in Victorian London in 1895.  The episode has been co-written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and will also see series regulars Rupert Graves, Una Stubbs, Louise Brealey and Amanda Abbington join the cast.  It is directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Doctor Who, Line of Duty).

National Theatre Live: Les Liaisons Dangereuses

From 9 April 2016

★★★★★
‘Theatre at its most seductive. Dominic West proves superb, Janet McTeer makes a triumphant return to the West End.’ – Evening Standard

★★★★
‘Heady and intoxicating. A brilliantly revived adaptation‘ – Daily Telegraph

★★★★
‘An evening to richly savour’ – The Guardian

Following the hugely successful broadcasts of Coriolanus and King Lear, National Theatre Live brings the Donmar Warehouse’s highly anticipated new production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses to cinemas – broadcast live from the Donmar’s London home.

Directed by Josie Rourke (Coriolanus), the cast includes Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Janet McTeer (The White Queen) and Dominic West (The Wire).

In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton’s irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Josie Rourke’s revival now marks the play’s thirty year anniversary.

Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and beautiful Madame de Tourvel. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.



Florence and the Uffizi Gallery

In cinemas 21 November!

Participating Cinemas

‘Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D/4K: a journey into the heart of the Renaissance’ is much more than a classic Art documentary: it’s a multi-dimensional, multi-sensory journey into the Italian Renaissance through the most beautiful, representative works of art of the period.

For the first time in cinema theaters worldwide comes an art film on the veritable open-air museum that is the city of Florence in which 3D technology ensures a totally immersive, unprecedented viewing experience: works of art speak for themselves with all the power of their extraordinary beauty enhanced by 3D vision.

A stimulating “emotional” commentary is given by a major, leading Renaissance figure, our guide Lorenzo the Magnificent, played by Simon Merrells.  From a timeless limbo, he takes us through a tour of “his” Florence, the cradle of Renaissance culture, all to the splendid accompaniment of carefully selected music. Also featured are valuable artistic contributions made by experts such as Antonio Natali, the Director of the Uffizi Gallery for almost 10 years; Marco Ciatti, Superintendent of the ‘Opificio delle Pietre Dure’ and Arturo Galansino, Director of Palazzo Strozzi.

Not only does this Art Film promise a unique 3D/4K viewing experience but it also offers an emotionally moving and engaging narrative.
