  • UPDATE: Another great response for our Autism friendly screening.  Thank you all again for supporting it. 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. The Plaza have been sensitive to such facts and together we have modified this screening to be suitable for those on the autism spectrum. It’s set to be a great day and hopefully enjoyed by all!’
    Just purchase your tickets as normal and on the day bring your paperwork regarding diagnosis along & a carer will be refunded.

    Il Trovatore – Royal Opera House Live

    Tuesday 31st January 2017 7:15pm

    sidebarInternational superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic. Il trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder. New in the 2015/16 Season, this atmospheric and poetic staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman. The famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi’s exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.

    Madama Butterfly – Royal Opera House Live

    Thursday 30th March 2017 7:15pm

    img66560606_mbuttPuccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists’ romanticized views of Japan. Puccini’s music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clingsvainly to her dreams.Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice

    Jewels – Royal Ballet Live

    Tuesday 11th April 2017 7:15pm

    img75445852_jewelsGeorge Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauréprovides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinskyand the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsk y in ‘Diamonds’. Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company
