Summer Autumn 2017
Back On The Big Screen
This summer you can see some classic movies as the filmmakers intended, sat amongst the audience watching them on a cinema screen.
Prick Up Your Ears (Park Circus)
Joe Orton was a true English eccentric: a controversial playwright and provocateur who rose from working class Leicester lad to the toast of swinging 60s London - not forgetting a brief pitstop in prison - before his promising future was cut short at the hands of his long-term partner, Kenneth Halliwell. In Prick Up Your Ears, Gary Oldman oozes charm as Orton; delivering catty one-liners and scandalous sexual barbs with a cheshire cat grin whilst capturing the tragedy of an artist lost in their prime. More than capable support comes from an all-star British cast that includes Alfred Molina, Vanessa Redgrave and Julie Walters.

Lawrence of Arabia (Park Circus)
One of the screen's grandest epics, director David Lean’s monumental story recounts the true life experiences of T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia. A young, idealistic British officer in WWI, Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) is assigned to the camp of Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness), an Arab tribal chieftain and leader in a revolt against the Turks. With Oscar winning cinematography, magnificent locations, Maurice Jarre's famed score and a screenplay based on Lawrence's own writings, David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia is a masterpiece. Over the years the film was heavily cut, but in 1988 a reconstruction of the film was undertaken and David Lean and original editor Anne V. Coates then created Lean's Director's Cut. It is this version that has now been digitally restored, ensuring that the film will be seen as it was meant to be, for the first time since its initial release.
