Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley

Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously moustachioed Poirot.

Sleeping Beauty

Vienna Festival Ballet returns to Swanage with their traditional, enchanting production of The Sleeping Beauty, a classic fairy tale set to Tchaikovsky's magnificent score, stunning choreography, beautiful costumes, all combine to portray the struggle between good and evil.

Incensed at being snubbed at the christening of Princess Aurora, the wicked fairy Carabosse lays a curse on the child, proclaiming that she will one day pierce her finger - and die. But the Lilac Fairy intervenes, and when the fateful day arrives, the princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep. A century later, Prince Florimund is guided to the castle by the Lilac Fairy, overcoming the obstacles created by Carabosse, and awakening the sleeping princess with a kiss. It is love at first sight, the palace awakes and a parade of fairytale characters attends the royal wedding. A gorgeous Tchaikovsky score, classic Petipa choreography, an enchanting fairytale.

Following the traditional tale of Sleeping Beauty, this ballet is sure to enchant audiences of all ages.

Founded in 1980 by the vastly experienced Austrian dancer and artistic director, Peter Mallek, Vienna Festival Ballet uses talented international dancers, giving a vitality, energy and freshness to every performance.

'An excellent company of talented young dancers. Their energy and enthusiasm is breathtaking'. Ents24.com

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarök
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins

Thor (Hemsworth) reunites with his duplicitous brother Loki (Hiddleston) to battle Hela, Goddess of Death (Blanchett). Director Taika Waititi averts narrative pomposity in favour of charm, comedy and gargantuan spectacle, while Hemsworth sends himself up with skill and confidence. An askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic addition to the MCU.
