Apocalypse Now

Apocalypse Now
  • 1980

  • 2h 33min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
  • Cast: Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Laurence Fishburne, Dennis Hopper, Harrison Ford, Frederic Forrest, Sam Bottoms, Albert Hall

Vietnam as 'the ultimate trip'. We follow US Army assassin Sheen downriver and deeper into the Heart of Darkness ruled over by Brando's mad Colonel Kurtz. Alternately pretentious and visually overpowering (the Valkyries helicopter attack, for example), the film's grandiloquent folly pierces right to the bone of the conflict.

National Theatre Live: A Midsummer Night's Dream

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

"The course of true love never did run smooth."

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of *A Midsummer Night’s Dream *will build on the success of his immersive staging of *Julius Caesar *(NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

Please note that this production is not a live broadcast, it is instead filmed live in front of an audience for cinema screenings.

National Theatre Live: Hansard

Hansard; noun The official report of all parliamentary debates.

See two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.

"…the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport."

It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.

Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra, Twelfth Night) and part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season.

National Theatre Live: Present Laughter

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy Present Laughter, filmed live in front of an audience.

"A giddy and surprisingly modern reflection…"

As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

Please note that this production is not a live broadcast, it is instead filmed live in front of an audience for cinema screenings.

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

Young J.R.R. Tolkien (Gilby, then Hoult) romances Edith Bratt (Keene, then Collins), forms friendships and then fights in the trenches of WWI. Hoult is charismatic as the lead and Collins is charming as Edith, and it’s a convincing enough portrait, but it’s a bit too cosy and traditional, especially the family-friendly combat sequences.

Wise Children

Wise Children

Based on the novel by Angela Carter

Adapted and Directed for the stage by Emma Rice

Filmed live at York Theatre Royal in March 2019

Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production. A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief, taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.  

In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance - twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father - and greatest actor of his generation - Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all… Performed by a talented ensemble cast, this entertaining, all-singing and dancing show opened to a raft of 4 and 5-star reviews at London’s Old Vic in 2018. Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the former Artistic Director of Kneehigh and Shakespeare’s Globe, it was filmed for the cinema screen at York Theatre Royal and is ‘pure, unadulterated theatre.’ (★★★★★ Broadway World)

★★★★★

‘Fantastic. Life-enhancing, brilliantly uninhibited, all-singing and dancing… Stars? I’m not sure why you would stop at five.’ The Observer

★★★★★

‘It's pure, unadulterated theatre with an airtight company, subject, direction, and production. Rice not only blind-casts the whole piece, but single-handedly gives a masterclass on how to play with gender.’ Broadway World

★★★★

‘An explosion of theatrical glee’ The Times

★★★★

‘It is a spectacular show, distilling the carnivalesque spirit of the book… Rice’s relaunch is a splashy one, celebrating the sheer razzle-dazzle of a life in theatre.’ The Guardian

★★★★

‘One huge love letter to theatre’ The Stage

Gateshead's Metrocentre is the largest shopping centre in the UK, with a mind-bending two million square feet of retail floor area, so no wonder its Odeon is correspondingly giant-sized, with 17 screens including an IMAX. Each screen has wheelchair spaces and an infrared sound system is in place for customers with hearing difficulties. All screens also offer audio description and subtitling.

The cinema offers over 18s the Gallery, a licensed bar with unlimited snacks and soft drinks, and it's big enough to have its own cafe and Ambar bar and lounge; drinks purchased in Ambar can be taken into the auditorium. There are regular film quiz nights on Thursday evenings from 8pm, and both the cafe and bar have free wi-fi.

Metrocentre itself is big enough to have its own chapel, but with over 340 stores and food and drink outlets ranging from Pizza Hut to a cocktail bar, there are plenty of places to relax. As far as getting there is concerned, the centre has not only its own bus station (with a shuttle bus service taking 15 minutes from the centre of Newcastle) but its own train station. There is ample parking.
