CINEMA | TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: BLADE RUNNER | TUESDAY 12 MARCH

Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford: a blade runner must pursue and terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth.

This is the first of our new regular event, Tuesday Night at the Movies, showing iconic feature films from the past which you may have missed first time round or are dying to see again on a big screen.

In the 21st century, a corporation develops human clones to be used as slaves in colonies outside the Earth, identified as replicants. In 2019, a former police officer is hired to hunt down a fugitive group of clones living undercover in Los Angeles.

Shown in the Scott-approved Final Cut version, it’s a visually remarkable and achingly human sci-fi masterpiece, set in a dystopian Los Angeles of 2019 – note the year.

CINEMA | TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS | TUESDAY 26 MARCH

The second outing for our new regular film night — which presents iconic films from the past — features a 1940s satire about a Hollywood film director who longs to make socially relevant dramas.

He sets out on a journey of self-discovery, only to learn the value of creating laughter. Sullivan is a successful, spoiled, and naive director of fluff films, with a heart-o-gold, who decides he wants to make a film about the troubles of the downtrodden poor. Much to the chagrin of his producers, he sets off in tramp’s clothing with a single dime in his pocket to experience poverty first-hand, and gets some reality shock.

Written and directed by Preston Sturges and starring Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake.

Duration: 90 mins

CINEMA | THE FAVOURITE | THURSDAY 4 APRIL

Emma Stone, Olivia Colman, and Rachel Weisz star in this Oscar-nominated film about Queen Anne

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper.

When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

CINEMA | TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: SOME LIKE IT HOT | TUESDAY 9 APRIL

Our regular night of iconic movies continues with the Marilyn Monroe masterpiece

SOME LIKE IT HOT, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, 1959

1929. Two unemployed musicians have the misfortune to witness the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Their instant escape plan, involving a change of clothes and an all-girl band, should work – but lead singer Sugar Kane (Monroe) is quite the distraction. An all-time comedy classic (although the awards went to Ben-Hur) that ends with the greatest last line in film history.

Director: Billy Wilder
With Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, George Raft

CINEMA | STAN & OLLIE | THURSDAY 18 APRIL

Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly, Laurel and Hardy, the world’s most famous comedy duo, attempt to reignite their film careers as they embark on what becomes their swan song – a gruelling theatre tour of post-war Britain.

 

The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
