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.

The cinema on Portobello Road has survived two world wars, including a bombing, and a narrow escape from being turned into a bingo hall. Now over 100 years old, the beautiful arch surrounding the screen is protected by English Heritage, and a specially-designed expanding monitor ensures that the viewing experience is enhanced rather than compromised by the preserved architecture. There's spacious leather armchair seating with footstools and two-seater sofas available in the back row, and a cocktail bar open for 30 minutes before screenings. The discerning programme is a combination of art house, classic and mainstream films that have received critical acclaim.
