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.

We The Kings (15)

We The Kings

Power can be ruthless, absolute, and at times invisible. Jack, a fostered boy on the run for attempted murder, seeks refuge in the house of an old deaf man who he can easily threaten to keep quiet. The more Jack’s past is revealed, through a series of flashbacks, the more apparent it becomes that he is just a boy hiding behind a facade that can crack all too easily. Meanwhile a more malicious side to the old man begins to show. Perhaps he too, is not all that he appears to be. Shot in striking blue-greens in the setting of a murky house, WE THE KINGS is a portrait of two tortured souls - played by Elliot James Langridge and Timothy West with electrifying intensity. It is a study of what it means to tear down human dignity, to cover up in hiding, and to preserve and lose power.

Robocop (1987) (18)

Robocop (1987)

The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present a special one-night screening of Paul Verhoeven's 1987 Sci Fi Action film, RoboCop.


When mild-mannered Detroit cop Alex Murphy is brutally murdered by a gang of criminals in the line of duty, corporate technology giant Omni Consumer Products deem him a prime candidate to test out their latest advances in the future of law enforcement.


Replacing much of his mutilated body with cybernetics, but leaving his brain in place, OCP turn Alex into the grisly prototype cyborg RoboCop, and assign him three main directives: serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law.


But as quickly as RoboCop starts to act on his duties and clean up the crime-ridden city, he starts to recall echoes of his former human self, and when RoboCop learns about the truth about OCP, he turns on his makers.


A dystopian future movie depicting the nature of humananity, with graphic violence, satirical humour, iconic costume design by special effects artist Rob Bottin, and stop-motion effects by veteran animator Phil Tippett, RoboCop is a 1980s classic not to be missed on the big screen!

The Merry Wives of Windsor: Live from Shakespeare’s Globe

Double-meanings, disguises and dirty laundry abound as Sir John Falstaff sets about improving his financial situation by wooing Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. But the ‘Merry Wives’ quickly cotton on to his tricks and decide to have a bit of fun of their own at Falstaff’s expense…


The story goes that Elizabeth I was so taken with the character of Falstaff in Henry IV that she asked Shakespeare to write a comedy about the disreputable knight falling in love. The resultant play is the only comedy that Shakespeare set in his native land, and with its dexterous mingling of verbal and physical humour, The Merry Wives of Windsor inaugurated a tradition that reaches right down to the contemporary English sitcom.

The Cold Blue (PG)

The Cold Blue

THE COLD BLUE is a tribute to the men who fought and risked their lives to help achieve victory - 75 years ago. Extraordinary, never before seen colour footage shot by one of the greatest directors, William Wyler, puts you 30,000 feet over Nazi Germany, battling killer flak, enemy fighters and minus 60 degree temperatures. All the odds were stacked against returning home alive - whilst men died to bring this harrowing footage into cinemas today. Now, you can fly alongside the last surviving heroes who flew, who fought and who risked their lives.


Multiple Academy Award® winning director William Wyler went to Europe in 1943 to document the Air War in progress. Wyler flew actual combat missions with B-17's - and one of his three cinematographers was killed during filming. Incredibly, all of the raw colour footage Wyler shot for THE MEMPHIS BELLE was recently discovered deep in the vaults of the National Archives, and a new film has been constructed out of the material.


This event will be paired with an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of The Cold Blue. Including a compelling and evocative look at WW2 via a range of unique perspectives, how the UK viewed the support of the allied troops, poignant and difficult moments brought to life via incredible colour footage, interviews of the 8th Airforce veterans and interviews with director Eric Nelson & Wyler’s daughter Catherine, telling the remarkable story behind the “found footage” and how The Cold Blue was created.

Pavarotti + Satellite Q&A

From the team behind the worldwide success The Beatles: Eight Days a Week comes two-time Academy Award® winning director Ron Howard's documentary celebrating the life of the beloved opera star Luciano Pavarotti, who sold over 100 million records in his lifetime. The 1990 World Cup in Italy was the moment opera left the elite and hit the masses. Opera star Pavarotti joined fellow tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras onstage in Rome watched by 1.4 billion worldwide. Their powerful rendition of 'Nessun Dorma' lives on as one of the most popular and famous pieces of music the world has ever heard, and Pavarotti realised his long-held dream of bringing opera into the mainstream. Ron Howard takes an intimate approach in telling Pavarotti’s story, going beyond the iconic public figure to reveal the man himself.


Thanks to a partnership with Decca Records and unique access to the Pavarotti family archives, home videos, behind the scenes and extensive live music footage, we see Pavarotti’s personal story emerge: from his humble beginnings in Northern Italy through to global superstardom. We travel the world with Pavarotti. We get to know the great tenor as a husband and a father, a committed philanthropist, as well as a fragile artist who had a complex relationship with his own unique talents and unprecedented success.
