Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans.

Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, "Mary Poppins Returns" also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep. The film, which introduces three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson, also features Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury.

After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep). The film is produced by Marshall, John DeLuca and Marc Platt. The screenplay is by David Magee based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing all new songs and Shaiman composing an original score.

Rocky IV

The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present a screening of Sylvester Stallone's classic 1985 ‘East meets West’ sequel…


ROCKY IV


When Russian strongman Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) touches down on American soil seeking a boxing opponent, it’s clear his management team are provocatively using his imposing strength to demonstrate the Soviet Union’s superiority over the United States.


Baited by the media attention, patriotic showman Apollo Creed challenges Drago to an exhibition fight, but when the match ends in tragedy - with Creed taking a fatal blow from the Soviet – our hero Rocky Balboa dramatically comes out of retirement, ready to avenge his friend’s death.


As soon as the date and venue are set (Christmas Day in Moscow!) the two fighters set out to prepare themselves for the ultimate battle of strength and will – each representing their nation amidst the growing cold war tension of the time.


But who will win the fight this time??...


With a very 80s soundtrack, some spurious technology, hilariously quotable dialogue, and many, many montages, Rocky IV is the “so bad it’s good” sequel we can’t wait to see on the big screen!

ROH: Royal Opera 2018-2019 Season - La Traviata

Richard Eyre’s beautiful production provides the perfect setting for Verdi’s opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.


From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life

Exhibition on Screen Season Six: Young Picasso (12A TBC)

Exhibition on Screen Season Six: Young Picasso

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time - and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years - the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place?  Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements.  

Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years. The film thus explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key early periods - the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period - the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art - Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.  It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old.  Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to great heights.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut (15)

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present Ridley Scott's 1982 futuristic film noir, BLADE RUNNER.


Los Angeles, 2019: A dystopian city of 106 million people; a sprawling metropolis peppered with neon and fire, where the shadows of industrial skyscrapers loom up through the glittering rain.


Former police officer Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is summoned by his old boss to resume his job as a Blade Runner in order to urgently hunt down and "retire" a group of highly sophisticated and dangerous Replicants (manufactured androids marketed as 'more human than human') who have just escaped from an off-world colony and are hidden amongst the general population.


Deckard is reluctant in his assignment, but when introduced to Rachael (Sean Young) a unique and beautiful Replicant who believes she is human, her pursuance of the truth draws their worlds together, and he finds himself falling in love.


With Vangelis' atmospheric soundtrack mixing the classical and the synthesised (mirroring the central theme of man's relationship with machines), impeccable practical effects evoking a dark yet magical world, and inspired costume design combining 1940s style with the fashion of the future, Blade Runner is a film that deserves to be seen on the big screen.


Based on Philip K. Dick's 1968 novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Ridley Scott's 'future noir' has been seen as seven different versions to date. The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present "The Final Cut" - the version of the film which best represents Scott's original vision.

Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona - La Gioconda

In 17th-century Venice, Enzo Grimaldo has abandoned the unfortunate Gioconda – whose mother, La Cieca, is accused of witchcraft – and is now in love with Laura, the wife of Alvise. This emblematic work, from the period between Verdi's heyday and the dawn of Verismo, is the best known of Amilcare Ponchielli's operas. In addition to the famous “Dance of the Hours” and Gioconda's suicide aria, La Gioconda contains many other superbly lyrical examples of post-Romantic sensibility. The masterful orchestration and the vocal writing of roles such as Laura, La Cieca, Enzo Grimaldo and Barnaba, are other key facets. The distinguished cast will be headed by Iréne Theorin, hailed as one of the best dramatic sopranos of our times, who has earned long ovations at the Liceu for her performances in Wagnerian roles. Now she appears in Barcelona once more to give us her long-awaited Gioconda.

Exhibition on Screen Season Six: Van Gogh & Japan (12A TBC)

Exhibition on Screen Season Six: Van Gogh & Japan

"I envy the Japanese" Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo.  In the exhibition on which this film is based - VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see why.  Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh.  

Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan – through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists – Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction. After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.
