Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

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.

Sometimes Always Never

Sometimes Always Never
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Carl Hunter
  • Cast: Bill Nighy, Jenny Agutter, Alice Lowe

Alan (Nighy) is a fastidious widower who joins his son Peter (Riley) at the seaside on family business. Fine performances, including an ever-excellent one from Nighy, can’t quite breathe life into Hunter’s Wes Anderson-ish mannerisms, in this gently melancholic but too studied comedy drama.

Tommy Tiernan: Alive

Tommy Tiernan: Alive

The edgy Irish stand-up proffers whimsical and occasionally dark thoughts and observations.

Familiar face from the telly – and familiar voice from the radio – throughout his career, Tiernan has appeared on The Tommy and Hector Show (alongside Hector Ó hEochagáin). Eagle-eyed among you will remember him as Father Kevin in Graham Linehan's Father Ted. Since then, he's been all over the place: The Lee Mack Show, Micahel McIntyre's Comedy Road Show and Dave's One Night Stand.

Award-wise, he's been just as prolific, having won Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny? award in 1996, the Perrier in 1998 and the Best Stand Up at the British Comedy Awards in that same year.
In 2003, he won the Nokia Best of the Fest Award and the Orange People Choice Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2006, he won Ireland's Funniest Living Person Award at the People of the Year Awards. If that doesn't convince you, we don't know what will.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon

Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.

Tivoli Theatre

Built in 1936 as a cinema and theatre, by the late 70s the Tivoli was under threat of demolition but following a long campaign to save the building it reopened in 1993. Today it continues its tradition of showing a mixture of cinema and live performance and sometimes both, with a good deal of events being event cinema screenings. It receives no Lottery or government funding and relies for its revenue entirely on its customers and supporters.

The nearest train station to Wimborne Minster is Poole, nearly eight miles away. The No 3 bus runs a regular service from Poole station to the centre of the town.
