42nd Street - The Musical (PG)

42nd Street - The Musical

42nd Street, the legendary Broadway musical theatre classic, is a ‘glorious’ (Express) and ‘utterly moreish extravaganza of glitz’ (Times). Telling the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway, this is the largest ever staging of the Tony® Award-winning musical and it was filmed live at the magnificent Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in the heart of London’s West End. Fresh off the bus from small-town America Peggy is just another face in the chorus line on Broadway’s newest show. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she’s always dreamed of… Directed by the show author, Mark Bramble, this ‘achingly beautiful revival of an American classic’ (Telegraph) stars national treasure Bonnie Langford as Dorothy Brock, Tom Lister as Julian Marsh, Clare Halse as Peggy Sawyer and Philip Bertioli as Billy Lawlor, performing with a dazzling tap-dancing and show-stopping ensemble cast. Featuring iconic songs 42nd Street, We’re In The Money, Lullaby Of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo, Dames and I Only Have Eyes For You, this is pure musical magic on the big screen – entertainment doesn’t get bigger than this!

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

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!"
