Evil Dead II (15)

Evil Dead II

The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present a one-night special screening of Sam Raimi's 1987 cult comedy horror, Evil Dead II.


When Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) and his girlfriend Linda take a trip to a remote cabin in the woods, the romantic weekend they'd hoped for is derailed when Ash accidentally unleashes a malevolent force, hell-bent on death and destruction.


The demon wreaks havoc, killing Linda and driving Ash to the brink of insanity through possession of Linda's body and fever-dream hallucinations. But our hero is not defeated, and when new visitors arrive at the cabin, Ash is ready to battle with the "deadites".


Created as both a sequel to and a parody of the 1981 original film 'The Evil Dead', with signature practical gore effects from Greg Nicotero, and the performance of a lifetime from Bruce Campbell, Evil Dead II is the demented, delirious nightmare not to be missed on the big screen!


"Groovy!"

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt (12A TBC)

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt

A new play by Tom Stoppard, directed by Patrick Marber.


Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.


We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.

Exhibition on Screen Season Seven: Frida Kahlo (12A)

Exhibition on Screen Season Seven: Frida Kahlo

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.


Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.


Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.


We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?


“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality” Frida Kahlo
