Soul Boys of the Western World & Spandau Ballet Live
Runtime:102mins       Rating:TBC

Soul Boys of the Western World is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world’s view of music and fashion. At the heart of it all was Spandau Ballet, five friends who epitomised the early 80s London scene and became one of the decade's most iconic bands with the world at their feet. The film is not only a fascinating, often hard hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost and ultimately regained. Directed by long-time Julien Temple producer, George Hencken, her archive-only feature documentary combines newsreel footage of the time with unseen video from the band's home movies, along with long lost material newly discovered. The film takes us into the heart of the era and the cultural, political and personal landscape that formed the backdrop to the band's story. A successor to Temple’s The Filth and The Fury and its depiction of punk era Britain, Soul Boys of the Western World is what happened next, the first on screen document of 1980s culture. The film will not only speak to fans of the band but to a whole new audience whom were not even born in the 80s. This is the real story of the time, from the DIY glamour and glitz reaction of The Blitz Club to the daily grime of the constant strikes and hardship the UK faced. Featuring music from throughout the band’s career, from their very first demos to songs recorded after their reformation, as well as music by their peers and influences, Soul Boys of the Western World lets the viewer inside the bubble of what life was really like to be a global pop superstar and what that can do to life-long friendships.

Royal Ballet: Manon (Live)
Runtime:155mins       Rating:LIVE

Manon tells the story of an impulsive young woman who is drawn into a world of male desire. She recklessly chooses luxury over love and, in doing so, pays the ultimate price. Jules Massenet based his 1884 opera on Abbe Prevost's controversial novel L'Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut. Laurent Pelly's charming production sets the action in the Paris of Massenet's day. The staging evokes the colour and elegance - as well as the darker social undercurrents - of the Belle Epoque. Manon is one of the great female roles of opera: she is both innocent ingenue and teasing seductress. Her music is richly varied, ranging from the sweetly hesitant 'Je suis encore tout etourdie to the flamboyant Gavotte, Obeissons quand leur voix appelle, and the heartbreaking duet with Des Grieux 'Tu pleures! The role of Des Grieux, whose music includes the great aria Ah! Fuyez, douce image!, is a popular one with many tenors. Vittorio Grigolo made his Covent Garden debut to great acclaim in 2010 as the passionate and betrayed lover.

Hockney: Live From LA
Runtime:195mins       Rating:TBC

An exclusive gala screening of the highly anticipated new feature HOCKNEY, followed by an in-depth conversation with David Hockney from his Los Angeles studio, broadcast live into cinemas.

Hockney is the definitive exploration of one of the most significant artists of his generation. For the first time, David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life.
The film chronicles Hockney’s vast career, from his early life in working-class Bradford, where his love for pictures was developed through his admiration for cinema, to his relocation to Hollywood where his life long struggle to escape labels ('queer', 'working class', 'figurative artist') was fully realised.
Paradoxically, this escape to live the American Dream did not break the ties to the childhood that formed him. We see his upbringing and life experiences give him the willpower to survive relationship problems, and later the AIDS epidemic, but also allow him to create some of the most renowned works of the past century.
Filmmaker Randall Wright offers a unique view of this unconventional artist who is now reaching new peaks of popularity worldwide, as charismatic as ever, and at seventy seven still working in the studio seven days a week.

RIGOLETTO (Giuseppe Verdi) live from Vienna
Runtime:180mins       Rating:

Considered one of Giuseppe Verdi’s greatest accomplishments, Rigoletto continues to enthrall audiences worldwide with its tragic plot and famous arias. One of the most popular arias of all time, “La donna e’ mobile,” is so catchy that prior to Rigoletto’s premiere in Venice of 1851, Verdi swore the tenor to secrecy, forbidding him to sing, hum, or whistle it anywhere except in his private rehearsals.

A tragedy of social injustice and inequality, Rigoletto explores the self-hate of the titular hunchbacked court jester, a typical Verdian character who oscillates between affection for his daughter and contempt for the nobility. Caught up in the Duke’s lascivious lifestyle, Rigoletto is cursed for his complicity. An intense drama of passion, deceit, filial love, revenge and murder, Rigoletto perfectly combines melodic richness with dramatic power, both being features which characterize Verdi’s opera masterpieces and ensure them a permanent place in the world’s operatic repertoire.

L'Histoire de Manon (Ballet) Live from Opera De Paris

Inspired by L'Abbé Prévost’s legendary heroine, Kenneth MacMillan expresses his fascination for offbeat characters and dramatic subjects. The choreographer faithfully follows the novel’s plot and reconstructs the tragic story of the sensual yet naïve Manon - more victim than architect of her fate. In Regency Paris, bourgeois society gorges itself on luxury and easy pleasures. Carried off in this whirlwind, Manon is unable to resist temptation and devastates the faithful Des Grieux in her fall. The choreographer constructs his ballet on a mosaic of extracts from Massenet, finding in the music all the drama, freshness and romanticism necessary for this grand fresco in dance. From crowded ball scenes to spirited, romantic, spirited pas de deux, Manon’s passionate existence propels inevitably toward the ballet’s sublime, yet tragic conclusion.
