Four women (Keaton, Fonda, Bergen and Steenburgen) form a book club to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and in so doing reassess their lives. Irresistibly cheeky and shamelessly cheesy ensemble drama in which older women are placed in the centre of the action, with a torrent of innuendo delivered with relish by a superior cast.

Zany gal Hepburn causes timid zoology professor Grant to lose a valuable dinosaur bone and mislay a pet leopard within the course of one screwball evening. Archetypal 30s crazy comedy with one outlandishly hilarious scene following another within the progression of an unerringly logical narrative. Both stars at their charismatic best.

He’s been called ‘The Austrian Oak’, ‘The Governator’ and more, but to RAD Screenings, he’ll always be known as ARNIE! On July 22nd, RAD celebrate the greatest action movie star in history, Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a suitably epic, explosive and eclectic movie marathon at one of their favourite cinemas in the UK: The Plaza in Stockport!
The day begins with Arnie at his most full-on ‘you’ve got my daughter and I’ll blow up everything (and everyone) until I get her back’ in the action packed classic COMMANDO. With the second film of the day, Arnie urges us to get to the chopper whilst his platoon face an otherworldly, super-deadly threat in the quintessential 80’s classic PREDATOR.
The penultimate movie of the day features Arnie in a perfect balance of his comedic and action acting talents, as a renowned international spy, trying to keep his career of international espionage separate from his very normal domestic life in TRUE LIES. Rounding out the day is arguably Arnold Schwarzenegger’s finest hour, as the titular, deadly android T-800 in James Cameron’s action sci-fi opus TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY.
Join us for a day of explosions, fist pumping moments, laughs and a ton of superb one liners from the king of action!
