New in Cinema


Into The Woods (PG)

Have you ever wondered what happens after happily ever after?

In this musical adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s hit Broadway musical, we find out more of the stories of fairy-tale favourites Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood. Their stories are all intertwined with that of the Baker and his wife, who long for a child, but a witch has put a curse on the family!

The only way to get the curse reversed is to find four magical items, “the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold”. With an all-star cast, and an array of incredible songs, Into The Woods is bound to change the way you see fairy-tales forever!

The Theory of Everything (12A)

Based on a book written by his wife, this moving drama tells the story of renowned British scientist Stephen Hawking.

Following his life from his days as a dazzling young Cambridge student to his present status as a global icon, the film takes in some of his startling early theories as well as his devastating diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease aged 21.

Perhaps less familiar, the film also focuses a lot on Hawking’s private life, in particular his long, and at times challenging, marriage to Jane. Remarkable performances from Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones bring a moving sense of realism to an exceptional and inspirational story.
