PREVIEW WEEKEND & SENIOR WEDNESDAY PREVIEWS

THE GREAT ESCAPER   

PREVIEW WEEKEND 01 - 03 MARCH | ALL SITES

WEDNESDAY 06 MARCH | ALL SITES

In the summer of 2014, Bernard Jordan (Sir Michael Caine) made global headlines. He had staged a “great escape” from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades at the D-Day Landings 70th anniversary.

It was a story that captured the imagination of the world as Bernie embodied the defiant, “can-do” spirit of a generation that was fast disappearing. But of course, it wasn’t the whole story. It was an inspirational but sanitised retelling of one man’s need to come to terms with the lasting trauma of war.

Bernie’s adventure, spanning a mere 48 hours, also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene (Glenda Jackson) – The Great Escaper celebrates their enduring love but always with an eye to the lessons we might learn from the Greatest Generation.

WICKED LITTLE LETTERS

WEDNESDAY 20 MARCH | ALL SITES

When hundreds of obscene letters mysteriously blight the picturesque British seaside town of Littlehampton, it is up to some foul-mouthed ladies to exonerate the innocent suspect and catch the real culprit. This is a hysterical and honest account of the women who get imprisoned because of their nonconforming behaviour, but still keep fighting for justice in the legal system that completely excludes them: They are demanding to be themselves in a society that advocates a specific kind of female behaviour.

Starring Olivia Colman, Timothy Spall, Eileen Atkins, Gemma Jones, Anjana Vasan, Jessie Buckley, Joanna Scanlan, Malachi Kirby and Lolly Adefope.

Sir Noël Coward grew up in poverty and left school when he was only nine years old. He was queer in a very straight world. And yet by the age of 30, he was the highest paid writer in the world, and a star on the Broadway stage. He wrote, directed and acted in some of the finest plays and movies of all time, including Private Lives, Blithe Spirit, Brief Encounter and In Which We Serve. The film features Sir Laurence Olivier, Dame Maggie Smith, Harold Pinter, Frank Sinatra, Lauren Bacall, Sir Michael Caine and Lucille Ball. It is narrated by Alan Cumming, with Rupert Everett as the voice of Sir Noël Coward.
