Starring: Vanessa Redgrave, Eric Bana, Rooney Mara
Running time: 109minutes

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, The Secret Scripture stars Vanessa Redgrave as the last patient remaining in a psychiatric hospital, who is firmly refusing to transfer to another facility.
Dr. William Grene (Eric Bana) is called in, and his sympathetic approach leads Rose to recount the story of how, as a young woman (Rooney Mara) in Sligo, she met and fell in love with Michael McNulty (Jack Reynor), arousing the jealousy of the local priest (Theo James), whose obsessive love for her led to her ruination.

Directed by Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot/In The Name of The Father).

RSC Live: Titus Andronicus (12A)

Encore Screening

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 to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).

Meet Me In St Louis is a delightful, classic, musical film - and one of the greatest musicals ever made, starring Judy Garland. It tells the story of a turn-of-the-century family in suburban, midwestern St. Louis of 1903, who live in a stylish Edwardian home at 5135 Kensington Avenue.

The city, and the well-to-do Smith family (with four beautiful daughters), is on the verge of hosting (and celebrating) the arrival of the spectacular 1904 World’s Fair. However, the family’s head of the house is beckoned to New York due to a job promotion - an uprooting move that threatens to indelibly change the lives of the family members forever. This charming musical features the songs ‘Meet Me In St Louis, Louis’, ‘The Trolley Song’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’.
The dementia friendly screenings are programmed in partnership with the ‘A Life More Ordinary’ Project at The Dukes Theatre, Lancaster. This is a screening for people with dementia, memory loss and their family, friends and carers but is open to the general public. Please note that pastoral care is not provided at these events.  A friend, family member or carer must also attend.
The screenings have a relaxed atmosphere so that people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please. Each screening includes an interval with live entertainment, provided by and in partnership with Welsh National Opera and supported by Canu Conwy, the Conwy County Borough Council staff choir.

***Please contact us in advance if you are a wheelchair user and wish to attend as there is limited availability of wheelchair spaces.
