BalletBoyz: Life

BalletBoyz: Life
  • Written by: Javier de Frutos

Mon 9 May

£23.50 (£22.50; £15)

Eddie the Eagle

Eddie the Eagle
  • 2016
  • UK/US/Germany
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken

Eddie Edwards (Egerton) is determined to be a ski jumper, but his only hope lies through boozy, washed-up former star Bronson (Jackman). Feelgood dramedy more 'inspired by' than 'based on' the real-life story of a plucky loser, with Egerton delightfully innocent as the hapless Eddie, and some thrilling ski jumping scenes.

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 102 min

  • Directed by: Gavin Hood
  • Written by: Guy Hibbert
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman

When a military operation to bring in a radicalised Englishwoman turns into a planned drone strike, commanding officer Katherine Powell (Mirren) and her colleagues have to juggle military necessity with saving civilian lives. Nerve-shredding and thought-provoking against-the-clock thriller which probes the moral grey areas of drone warfare.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

Truth

Truth
  • 2015
  • US
  • 121 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Vanderbilt
  • Cast: Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford, Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, Elizabeth Moss

When CBS producer Mary Mapes (Blanchett) airs a story questioning George W Bush's military service record, she finds herself and anchor Dan Rather (Redford) in trouble when the story seems to be based on questionable evidence. Excellent performances from all, but Blanchett is sublime and the film asks hard questions about the viability of independent journalism.

Zootropolis

  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Byron Howard/Rich Moore/Jared Bush
  • Written by: Jared Bush, Phil Johnston
  • Cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba

Trailblazing rabbit Judy (Goodwin) goes to the city to join the police, and teams up with con artist fox Nick (Bateman) on the trail of a missing otter. Cheerfully feminist but never preachy, with gorgeous animation and a classy cast, it's a model piece of family entertainment.

From its beginnings as an early cinema called the Picturedrome (first opened in 1914), the Connaught Cinema and RitzDigital have undergone some major changes, including time spent as a theatre, tea dance venue and, since 1987, a cinema once again, with fully modernised projection facilities. Now the building has 3D capability, a theatre studio, wheelchair access and some signed performances across the two screens.
