Bolshoi Ballet: Nutcracker

On Christmas Eve, Marie receives a nutcracker doll as a gift. In her dreams, the toy turns into a courageous and charming prince, who takes the girl on an unforgettable adventure.

This eternal holiday classic is the Bolshoi’s ode to wonder and imagination. Audiences of all ages will be carried away on an enchanting journey of their dreams with young Marie and her Prince through a whirlwind of snowflakes, an intense battle against a Mouse King, and finally, a kingdom of delights on the Bolshoi’s majestic stage.

*We have a new seating plan that automatically allocates your seats to ensure social distancing while making the best possible use of our limited capacity. You don't need to do anything to make this happen: just select the number of tickets you need and they'll be automatically assigned. This should provide more flexibility when booking, but if you have any problems our box office team will be very happy to help, and can be reached on 01382 432 444. *

*If you are visiting the cinema with another household we kindly ask that you book separately so that social distancing can be maintained: alternatively, you can book two bubbles in a single booking by calling box office on 01382 432 444. *

If you need to book one of our wheelchair seats please contact our box office team on 01382 432 444, or email dca@dca.org.uk.

Breathless

The epitome of cinematic cool which inspired a generation of filmmakers from Quentin Tarantino and Tony Scott to Lars Von Trier and Terence Malick, Breathless (À Bout De Souffle) features iconic performances from Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg as the central, most delightful and insolent couple in cinema history – young, effortlessly stylish, and in love in Paris.

“…inspired a generation of filmmakers”

Based on a story by Francois Truffaut and photographed by New Wave legend Raoul Coutard, Jean-Luc Godard’s film debut is a jazzy riff on Film Noir. With its non-stop pace, Breathless reinvented the grammar of movies and spearheaded the French New Wave of filmmaking.

This freshly-restored version of the film is screening to celebrate its 60th anniversary.

When you’re booking your cinema ticket you’ll notice the cinema has been divided into ‘bubbles’ of one or two in order to maintain social distancing. You won’t be able to book part of a bubble, but you can book more than one: for instance a group of four can book two bubbles of two. 

If you can’t find a combination of seats that suits your group please get in touch and we’ll try to help, although capacity is very limited in all screenings.

If you need to book one of our wheelchair seats please contact our box office team on 01382 432 444, or email dca@dca.org.uk.

Metropolitan Opera: The Magic Flute

The Met made history in December 2006 when it presented its first Live in HD transmission to cinemas worldwide—the abridged English-language version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Now a beloved holiday tradition, Julie Taymor’s enchanting production of this delightful fairy tale returns to the big screen in a special encore presentation with its eye-popping puppetry and stunning visuals.

Dundee Contemporary Arts

Dundee Contemporary Arts is a major arts hub in Dundee city centre. Located in a much-converted garage, it opened in 1999 and offers multiple facilities: an art gallery with a thriving visual arts programme; a two-screen cinema specialising in classic and arthouse cinema (but not averse to the odd blockbuster); a print studio and a visual research centre run in cooperation with the University of Dundee. The Jute Cafe Bar offers lunch, evening and kids' menus.

The DCA is situated at the heart of Dundee's cultural and social life, located a short walk from the railway station and the main shopping centre, and close to Dundee University's campus. There is a multi-storey car park next door, with cycle lockers available at the rear.
