Ian McKellen’s extraordinarily moving portrayal is directed by Jonathan Munby.

The Globe Theatre WINTER’S TALE

7.15pm Thursday 4th October

Shakespeare’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable: a universe full of monsters, gods and natural disasters with a colossal sweep that takes audiences from the stifling atmosphere of the Sicilian court to the unbuttoned joy of a Bohemian festival. Directed by Blanche McIntyre and staring Will Keen (The Crown, Wolf Hall) Priyanga Burford (W1A, Marcella) and Annette Badland (EastEnders, Father Brown) as Old Shepherd


7.15pm Tuesday 9th October

A new production of one of the funniest plays in English, broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. Wilde’s much-loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays. Jack, Algy, Gwendolyn and Cecily discover how unsmooth runs the course of true love, while Lady Bracknell keeps a baleful eye on the mayhem of manners

The Royal Ballet MAYERLING

7.15pm Monday 15th October

Mayerling, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, features emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer.

Kenneth MacMillan

choreographs a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf. The glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide.

THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD Plus Live Q&A with Peter Jackson 6.00pm Tuesday 16th October

On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) presents the World Premiere of an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it. This unique film brings into high definition the human face of the First World War as part of a special London Film Festival event alongside a live Q&A with director Peter Jackson hosted by Mark Kermode. Using state-of-the-art technology to restore and colourise original archival footage, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. The film explores the reality of the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate, slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches, showing us the humility and humanity of a generation changed forever by a global war.

FUNNY GIRL The Musical

7.30pm Wednesday 24th October

Following its record-breaking, sell-out run in London’s West End and national tour, the critically-acclaimed musical Funny Girl comes to the cinema, featuring Sheridan Smith.
