Live Satellite Event with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon preceded by The Trip to Italy

Wednesday 21 May 2014 8:15pm

Tickets £10
Doors open 7.15

Reprising the formula of director Michael Winterbottom’s hit BBC TV series The Trip, comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel the length of Italy reviewing toothsome restaurants for The Observer. While this nominally offers us endless high-end food porn, The Trip To Italy is of course a chance for its two stars to engage in constant, gently argumentative and inevitably hilarious banter. While taking in the restaurants of Liguria, Tuscany, Rome, Amalfi and Capri, they talk about life, love, work, exile, Byron and Shelley in this leftfield comedy gem.

This special event, exclusive to cinemas, reunites the two stars to bring their inimitable banter live, as they discuss the popular series and take questions from the audience. The Trip To Italy is a feature length edit of the TV series, it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah earlier this year.

Marc Allenby, Director of Distribution at Picturehouse said “we are excited to be bringing this popular TV series to the big screen and with it, two comedy institutions. Adding the live dynamic to the hugely popular show will make for a wonderfully unpredictable night of hilarious entertainment.”

Following its smash-hit live broadcast in 2012, the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to cinemas.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’. Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play.

Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information.

Ghosts (Screening)

Thursday 26 June 2014 7:00pm

Tickets £10

The West End Theatre Series is delighted to present Richard Eyre’s "spell-binding" adaptation (Independent) of GHOSTS by Henrik Ibsen.
Helene Alving (Lesley Manville) has spent her life suspended in an emotional void after the death of her cruel but outwardly charming husband. She is determined to escape the ghosts of her past by telling her son, Oswald (Jack Lowden), the truth about his father. But on his return from his life as a painter in France, Oswald reveals how he has already inherited the legacy of Alving’s dissolute life.
Nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best Revival, GHOSTS transferred to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios following a sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.
Giving a "magnificent performance" (Guardian), Lesley Manville (Grief, Another Year) leads the cast in Richard Eyre’s "compellingly vibrant" (Evening Standard) adaptation of Ibsen’s masterpiece.
The West End Theatre Series is captured in High Definition by Digital Theatre and distributed by CinemaLive.
