Frost/Nixon (15) (117 mins)- Monday 11th April, 8pm
It’s not always that a stage play translates particularly well to the medium of movies. But for anyone considering such a challenge in the future, Frost/Nixon is surely a fine template to follow. In the capable hands of director Ron Howard, the extraordinary story of how a then-fairly low profile television interviewer managed to bring the disgraced former President of the United States to account is, at best, absolutely riveting.
Much Ado About Nothing (PG) Saturday 23rd April, 8pm
The first of our Shakespeare celebration trio of films. Star studded rendition of the classic Shakespeare romantic comedy which sees two princes, Claudio and Benedict, battling to win the hearts of those they love.
Macbeth (Verdi) (E) (133 mins) Sun 24th April, 7pm
The second in our trio of films celebrating 400 years since Shakespeare’s death. Starring Leo Nucci in the title role this 1987 version is a classic not to be missed.
Henry V (PG) (137 mins) Monday 25th April, 8pm
Olivier’s masterful, sweeping rendition of Shakespeare, filmed in rich colour and ingeniously including a typical performance at the Globe Theatre as it might have been seen 400 years ago. The film earned Olivier a special Oscar for outstanding achievement as actor, producer and director.
