    Our next show is TBC

     

    With this type of showing the lights are left on low, the volume is turned down, future film trailers are removed and people can move around the cinema or make a noise as they feel comfortable. The films are recommended to anyone that would benefit from the subtle alterations made to the cinema auditorium because of their sensory differences and it allows them to attend newly released films with friends and family in an inclusive environment.

    A spokesperson from Spectrum said ‘We are delighted to work in conjunction with the Plaza to host Autism friendly cinema screenings. After receiving request and enquiries from so many of the families that use our services, we are thrilled to be able to offer them a chance to enjoy such an occasion, tailored specifically to their needs.

    img91568561_goodandreHe is known for his energetic and spell-binding live performances, as well as amassing over 40 million album and DVD sales worldwide, and now the world’s leading pop classical artist, André Rieu, has announced his annual Maastricht concert will once again be beamed into cinemas across the UK in celebration of his 30th year in music. André Rieu’s 2017 Maastricht Concert will screen via satellite in over 500 cinemas in the UK on Saturday 22nd July (7pm) and Sunday 23th July (3pm) including major multiplexes and many independent cinemas and arts centres. The Dutch violinist is one of the world’s highest-grossing touring artists, and every year performs a very special concert in his hometown of Maastricht to tens of thousands who travel from all over the globe to experience one of the most emotionally engulfing live music experiences possible, set against the back-drop of the equally as elegant medieval town square. The Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, with his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests. Last year, André Rieu’s Maastricht concert broke his own record for music event cinema – grossing more than £1.4million at the UK box office over one weekend, more than Take That and One Direction. Now, the Maastricht concert in 2017 will hold extra special significance, as it marks 30 years since André formed the Johann Strauss Orchestra, who have come to be as much family to him as some of the most talented musicians anyone could share the stage with. Once again, the cinema show will be hosted by Good Morning Britain Presenter, Charlotte Hawkins.

    Wednesday 9th August

    Titus Andronicus_One_Sheet(1)The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).

    THE MAGIC FLUTE – ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE

    Wednesday 20th September 7:15pm & Encore Screening Sun 24th 2:00pm

    Die Zauberflote by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart at The Royal Opera House Conductor Cornelius Meister Director David McVicar Set designs John Macfarlane Lighting design Paule Constable Movement director Leah Hausman Chorus director Renato Balsadonna Associate Concert Master Ania Safonova Cast: Tamino Toby Spence Pamina Janai Brugger Queen of the Night Anna Siminska Papageno Markus Werba Sarastro Georg Zeppenfeld Monostatos Colin Judson Papagena Rhian Lois Speaker of the Temple Benjamin Bevan First Lady Sinead Mulhern Second Lady Nadezhda Karyazina Third Lady Claudia Huckle First Priest Harry Nicoll Second Priest Donald Maxwell First Man in Armour Samuel Sakker Second Man in Armour James Platt Three boys Michael Clayton-Jolly Matthew Price Alessio D'Andrea

    Mozart’s glorious opera The Magic Flute is brought enchantingly to life in David McVicar’s production with beautiful sets by John Macfarlane. Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his quest, accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno – but all is not as it seems… David McVicar’s classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart’s work. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies. The setting provides a wonderful backdrop for Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score, from the Queen of the Night’s coloratura fireworks to Tamino and Pamina’s lyrical love duets and Papageno’s hearty, folksong-like arias. As well as being a comedy The Magic Flute is an expression of Mozart’s profound spiritual beliefs: Enlightenment concerns with the search for wisdom and virtue are at the heart of this enchanting tale. The Magic Flute was an instant success with audiences and Mozart’s supposed rival Salieri described it as an ‘operone’ – a great opera.

    LA BOHEME – Royal Opera House LIVE

    Tuesday 3rd October 7:15pm & Encore Screening Sun 8th October 2:00pm

    img76807086_la boheme smallWhen Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill. Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov, Il trittico) directs a new production of Puccini’s La bohème. Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the bohemian fringes of Paris, the capital of the 19th century. Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing’s spectacular, stylized 1850s setting. Puccini’s romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world, making La bohème one of the best-loved of all operas. It was first performed in Covent Garden in 1897 and has had more than five hundred performances there since.

    ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND – ROYAL BALLET LIVE

    Monday 23rd October 7:15pm & Encore Screening Sun 29th Oct 2:00pm

    Laura Morera as The Queen of Hearts in The Royal Ballet production of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (2011), choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, to music by Joby Talbot, with set and costume designs by Bob Crowley. Performed at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden on 15 March 2013. ARPDATA ; ALICEíS ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND ; Music by Talbot ; Choreography by Wheeldon ; Laura Morera (as The Queen of Hearts) ; The Royal Ballet ; At the Royal Opera House, London, UK ; 15 March 2013 ; Credit: Johan Persson / Royal Opera House / ArenaPAL

    At a garden party on a sunny afternoon, Alice is surprised to see her parents’ friend Lewis Carroll transform into a white rabbit. When she follows him down a rabbit hole events become curiouser and curiouser… As Alice journeys through Wonderland, she encounters countless strange creatures. She’s swept off her feet by the charming Knave of Hearts, who’s on the run for stealing the tarts. Confusion piles upon confusion. Then Alice wakes with a start. Was it all a daydream? Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography. Joby Talbot’s score combines contemporary soundworlds with sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob Crowley’s wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs draw on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real. Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary and instantly recognizable characters, from the highly strung Queen of Hearts – who performs a hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty’s famous Rose Adage – to a playing-card corps de ballet, a sinuous caterpillar and a tap-dancing Mad Hatter. But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a nightmarish kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here in vivid detail. The delicious result shows The Royal Ballet at its best, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment.

    THE NUTCRACKER – ROYAL BALLET LIVE

    Tuesday 5th December 7.15pm & Sunday 10th December 2:00pm Encore Screening

    nutcrackerThe young Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favourite present – a Nutcracker doll. But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure. After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming – but doesn’t she recognize Drosselmeyer’s nephew? Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores. Loosely based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the ballet opens with a lively Christmas party, its Victorian setting captured in opulent detail by Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs. Wright’s choreography ingeniously incorporates surviving fragments of the ballet’s original material, including the sublime pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince. But in emphasizing the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, the production also gains a touching subtext of first love

    RIGOLETTO – ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE

    Tuesday 16th January 7:15pm & encore Screening Sun 21st Jan 2:00pm

    RIGOLETTO by Verdi ; (Gilda) ; Directed by David McVicar ; Set designed by Michael Vale ; Costume design by Tanya McCallin ; Lighting design by Paule Constable ; The Royal Opera ; At the Royal Opera House, London, UK ; 9 September 2014 ; Credit: Catherine Ashmore / Royal Opera House / ArenaPAL ;

    The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Verdi’s potent tragedy in David McVicar’s production for The Royal Opera. Rigoletto, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter. When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect… David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances. The opera’s many musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite, plangent duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the gorgeous Act III quartet that beautifully weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion. Giuseppe Verdi wrote in 1855 that Rigoletto was his ‘best opera’. He had had to overcome state censorship to stage it – the censors objected to its depiction of an immoral ruler – but he was vindicated by the premiere’s huge success in 1851. Rigoletto was performed 250 times in the next 10 years and has remained one of the most popular of all operas.

    TOSCA – ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE

    Wednesday 7th Feburary 7:15pm & Encore Screening Sun 11th Feb 2:00pm

    img42482972_tosca smallTosca is one of the great evenings of opera, and from its strident opening chords conjures up a world of political instability and menace. Jonathan Kent’s production for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias, including ‘Vissi d’arte’ and ‘E lucevan le stelle’. Giacomo Puccini’s dramatic work was a hit with audiences on its 1900 premiere and it remains one of the most performed of all operas – with its gripping plot and glorious music, it’s easy to see why. A candle-lit church, Scarpia’s gloomy study with its hidden torture chamber and the false optimism of a Roman dawn: this handsome production throws into relief the ruthlessly taut drama, as the tension is wound up towards a fateful conclusion. Puccini’s meticulously researched score is infused with the same authentic detail, from distant cannon fire during the Act I Te Deum to tolling church bells and the sounds of a firing squad.
