What’s On

  • André Rieu: Shall We Dance?

    Screening of André Rieu’s 2019 hometown concert in Maastricht.

    27 Jul: Sat 7pm; Sun 3pm

  • André Rieu's Maastricht Concert

    Legendary annual Maastricht concert which features the maestro in his element, along with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests.

    27 Jul: Sat 7pm; Sun 3pm

  • Annabelle Comes Home

    Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Wilson and Farmiga) find themselves once again menaced by devil doll Annabelle. Dauberman knows how to build tension and makes a few efficient jump-scares, but there’s no depth to the story and apart from excellent performances it’s a straightforward terrorise-the-teens picture.

    20 Jul–24 Jul: Mon, Wed & Sat 9pm

  • The Lion King

    Live action remake of the beloved Disney animation.

    21 Jul–25 Jul: Mon 11.10am, 12.10pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4.50pm, 7.40pm & 8.40pm; Tue–Thu 11.10am, 12.10pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4.50pm, 5.50pm, 7.40pm & 8.40pm; Sun 11.10am, 12.10pm, 2pm, 4.50pm, 5.50pm, 7.40pm & 8.40pm

    21 Jul–25 Jul: (3D) Mon–Wed 10.10am, 1pm, 3.50pm & 6.40pm; Thu 10.10am, 1pm & 3.50pm; Sun 10.10am, 1pm, 3.50pm & 6.40pm

  • National Theatre Live: The Lehman Trilogy

    Live broadcast of National Theatre’s play about the rise and fall of the Lehman Brothers and their role in the 2008 financial crisis, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles.

    25 Jul: Thu 7pm

  • Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups

    A meteor lands in Adventure Bay and gives the pups superpowers, but also gives superpowers to nasty Harold of neighbouring Foggy Bottom. Basically a 70-minute extended episode of the series, enjoyably innocuous and easy to follow, although parents won’t be pleased when the toy requests come in after the end credits roll.

    20 Jul–25 Jul: (Kids) Mon–Thu, Sat & Sun 10am

  • Rocketman

    This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

    26 Jul: (Subtitled) Fri 7.30pm

  • Spider-Man: Far From Home

    After the events of Endgame, Peter Parker (Holland) is dealing with the loss of his mentor when he and his schoolmates find themselves fighting the Elementals. An enjoyable mix of storming special effects and road trip silliness which manages to work in the believable development in the relationship between Peter and MJ (Zendaya). It returns the fun to the Marvel canon.

    21 Jul–25 Jul: Mon–Thu & Sun 11.20am, 2.15pm, 5.15pm & 8.15pm

  • Toy Story 4

    Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

    21 Jul–25 Jul: Mon 11am, 1.30pm, 4pm & 6.30pm; Tue 10.20am, 12.50pm, 3.30pm & 6pm; Wed 11am, 1.30pm, 4pm & 6.30pm; Thu & Sun 10.20am, 12.50pm, 3.30pm & 6pm

  • Yesterday

    Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.

    21 Jul–25 Jul: Tue, Thu & Sun 8.30pm
