The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (15)

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Loft Movie Theatre is very proud to present a screening of Sergio Leone's 1966 epic Spaghetti Western, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach as our three eponymous anti-heroes, this is the third movie in Sergio Leone's "Dollars" trilogy, and simply the most famous Spaghetti Western of all time.

While the American Civil War rages on, 'Blondie', 'Angel Eyes' and 'Tuco' are embroiled in an underground world of bounty hunting and gold-grabbing. Their paths cross in diabolical ways - culminating with an iconic Mexican stand-off in one of the most emulated movie climaxes in cinema history.

With Ennio Morricone's legendary score driving the tone and emotion of every scene, and Leone's stunning signature cinematography, mixing sweeping long shots with extreme close-ups, this is the European stylised cinema of the Wild West;  romanticised, violent, complex and colourful.

‘Amore, My Tribute to Love’, is the renowned violinists tribute to his love for music, and his love for both of his families; his wife and children, and of course for his Johann Strauss Orchestra, who he has performed with for over 30 years.

The Happy Prince (15)

The Happy Prince

The last days of Oscar Wilde -- and the ghosts that haunted them -- are vividly evoked in Rupert Everett's directorial debut. Everett gives a career defining performance as Wilde, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius as he lives out his last days in exile in Europe. His body ailing and heavy, his mind spinning, he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him. As the film travels through Wilde's final act and journeys through England, France and Italy, desire and loyalty face off, the transience of lust is laid bare, and the true riches of love are revealed.

The Graduate (12A)

The Graduate

The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present a screening of Mike Nichols' 1967 classic coming-of-age comedy-drama, The Graduate. Starring Dustin Hoffman in his first lead acting role, Anne Bancroft as the infamous seductress Mrs Robinson, and Katharine Ross as her daughter Elaine, The Graduate follows Benjamin Braddock, a recent college graduate whose sense of alienation from his wealthy family has become tangible since he returned from school.

Uninspired by his parents' expectations, Ben becomes distracted by a romantic invitation from an older woman, and instead of carefully planning his future, he soon finds himself navigating through a most complicated love triangle on his way to adulthood.

Filmed on location along the California coast in 1967, The Graduate is beautifully shot, and perfectly captures the disaffected spirit of middle-class suburban youth in the year when the hippy movement claimed the summer of love as their own.

With a soundtrack featuring evocative music from Simon and Garfunkel, powerful use of cinematography leading the audience through Ben's personal journey, and an emotional rollercoaster culminating in one of the most parodied scenes in cinema history, it is no wonder The Graduate was nominated for 7 Academy Awards in 1968 - winning Nichols the Oscar for Best Director and Hoffman the Oscar for Best Actor.

National Theatre: King Lear (2018)

‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ (Daily Telegraph)

Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.  Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Exhibition on Screen Season Six: Degas: Passion for Perfection (12A TBC)

Exhibition on Screen Season Six: Degas: Passion for Perfection

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters.

Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eye sight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’ artistic mind.

“Art is not a matter of what you see, but what you make other people see.” Edgar Degas

Royal Shakespeare Company: Troilus and Cressida (12A LIVE)

Royal Shakespeare Company: Troilus and Cressida

"Lechery, lechery, still wars and lechery: nothing else holds fashion"

Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy their innocence is tested, and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war, with tragic consequences.

Virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie collaborates with RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran to create a satirical futuristic vision of a world resounding with the rhythm of battle, broadcast live to cinemas from Shakespeare's home town.

The Greek army is encamped under the walls of Troy and, at the point at which the play begins, the war has reached stalemate. The Greeks are quarrelling amongst themselves. Achilles, their greatest champion, refuses to fight and has withdrawn to his tent with his lover, Patroclus. Equally at odds with themselves, the Trojans are debating the value of continuing the war merely for the sake of keeping Helen.

Troilus is much distracted from these military concerns by his love for Cressida, the daughter of a Trojan who has defected to the Greek camp. The young lovers are eagerly assisted by Cressida's uncle Pandarus, who acts as their go-between. However, after only one night together they are parted when Cressida is sent to join her father in the Greek camp. Almost immediately she betrays Troilus with the Greek Diomedes and, discovering this, Troilus is plunged into despair.

Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona - L’italiana in Algeri

L’italiana in Algeri espouses the cause of women's rights through the resourceful way its protagonist, Isabella, deals with the coarse Mustafà. Rossini was only 21 when he triumphed with this two-act farce, which consolidated his personal style and his status as the rightful heir of 18th-century opera buffa. Great arias and dazzling ensembles – like the one punctuated by onomatopoeia at the end of the first act – are just a few of the gourmet dishes on this hilarious Rossini menu. It has been 36 years since L’italiana in Algeri was last seen at the Liceu. Riccardo Frizza will be back in the orchestra pit with an entire cast of specialists in this style of opera on the stage. The bright colours of director Vittorio Borrelli's mise-en-scène are very much in keeping with the imaginative spirit of Rossini's sparkling music.

I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare, premiering at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

Pauline Gibson has spent her life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a local health campaign. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, a stalwart loyalist in Labour Party politics, she’s faced with an agonising decision.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your piece of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

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.

Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona - La Gioconda (12A LIVE)

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.
