Thor: Ragnarok (12A)

Thor: Ragnarok

Synopsis

Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.

Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar®-nominee Mark Ruffalo (“Spotlight,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Foxcatcher”), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible."

Thor’s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth (“Rush,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Ghostbusters”) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (“Crimson Peak,” “The Night Manager,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba (“The Dark Tower,” “Luther,” “Beasts of No Nation”) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy Award®-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Nixon,” “Hitchcock”) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.

“Thor: Ragnarok,” the third installment of Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”). Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.

Still trying to come to terms with the death of his own teenage daughter, Cory is forced, most brutally, to confront his own past. When rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) is assigned to the case, she enlists Cory’s help to navigate the unfamiliar terrain and unforgiving conditions as the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away.

Final Portrait (15)

Final Portrait

Synopsis

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.

So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.

Delirium followed by Q&A with Producer / Composer

Synopsis

Monday 11th September 8pm
Tickets £10.00; Movie Deal £26.95

Following the screening there will be a Q&A with the Producer and Composer Fiona Howe.

Amidst the dreaming spires of a British university, an international composer struggles to seal his reputation with a modern Requiem, only to find it raises more ghosts than it lays to rest.

Torn between the conflicting demands of art and academia, he neglects his hypochondriac wife and teenage kids, turning upside down the institution he is meant to rescue. But a time-bomb is ticking in the college kitchens, in the form of an enigmatic young cellist who remembers more about his past than he does.

"Delirium" features an acting tour de force by writer/director Gareth Jones and a specially commissioned Requiem by producer/composer Fiona Howe. Shot at the historic Founder's Building at Royal Holloway, University of London, this is an atmospheric study of the overheated musical life within cloistered walls, a moving story of how music transcends infidelity and attains grandeur.

Mark Richards – Romans and Railways

Synopsis

Saturday 23rd September 5.00pm

Tickets £6.00, unallocated seating
Jazz Bar, Zeffirellis Main Building

Author and illustrator Mark Richards, the man who created the eight-volume ‘Fellranger’ series of Lake District guidebooks to the fells, has just had two new walking books published – the two-volume Hadrian’s High Way and Great Lakes Connection – both with routes that both pass through Ambleside.

The linear journeys have been created to provide new walking holiday perspectives on the area. The 50-mile long Great Lakes Connection is a railway station to station walk from Grange-over-Sands to Penrith, linking Windermere with Ullswater, and therefore has two optional lake-long cruises.

The 100-mile long Hadrian’s High Way follows Roman roads east from Ravenglass, via Ambleside to Brougham, crossing the Pennine watershed to Alston and so to and along the Roman wall concluding at Vindolanda near Hexham in the Tyne Valley.

During Mark’s talk you will be able to find out about these glorious routes and the work that went into creating new guidebooks from scratch.

Zeffirellis Main Building

For more than a year film-maker Terry Abraham has been chronicling the life of one of Britain’s greatest ever mountaineers by accompanying Alan Hinkes OBE to beautiful mountain locations in the UK and the Himalayas that have shaped Alan’s life – including the Lake District.

The result will be a stunning new film about the life of the 63 year-old Yorkshireman – the only Briton to have climbed all 14 of the world’s 8,000-metre peaks – which will premier at Rheged on Saturday 14 October.

Alan and Terry are teaming up for a two-hour talk and presentation about the movie, which will feature stunning photography for which Terry is rightly acclaimed, plus mountain chat and Alan’s famously dry North Yorkshire wit.

It is the second year that Alan Hinkes has been patron of Festival of the Fells, and the presentation will include a welcome message from Alan – who might just be persuaded to unveil the festival’s second-year poem, courtesy of poet John Phoenix Hutchinson.

The talk is one of the undoubted highlights of the festival and tickets are expected to sell quickly!

Synopsis

Monday 31st July 6.00pm

Tickets £8.50; Movie Deals £25.45

Like countless others Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled 'idiots', locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release - the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. Together they created L'Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris and a quiet revolution was born.

Now in his 80s and still at L'Arche, Jean has discovered something that most of us have forgotten - what it is to be human, to be foolish, and to be happy.

SUMMER IN THE FOREST invites us to abandon the rat race and forge new friendships. Amid the ancient trees, Philippe, Patrick, Jean and the others welcome us into their lives. If there are rules to break, they will be broken and if there is a truth to be told, they will tell it. Michel wants to share with us his war torn past, Andre is desperate for a date, and young David will prove himself a hero in the fight against the forces of evil.

The Midwife

Synopsis

Two French acting greats, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot, share the screen for the very first time in The Midwife, a bright and charming drama about old acquaintances and new beginnings from celebrated director Martin Provost (Séraphine, Violette).

Conscientious, inhibited and perhaps a little self-righteous, midwife Claire (Frot) is stuck in a rut. After years of placing other people before herself, she’s worried she might have been left behind. One day, however, an unexpected phone call changes everything. The call is from her father’s former mistress, Béatrice (Deneuve), a capricious free spirit who’s been off-grid since she walked out on them over three decades ago. As circumstances reunite these two polar-opposites, flighty Béatrice is forced to consider her responsibilities, while uptight Claire finally learns to let go of her troubles.

Sparkling with humour, tenderness and mischievous charm, Provost’s film provides a perfect canvas for its tour-de-force lead performances. A bold and buoyant two-hander, The Midwife is a bewitching and unapologetic celebration of life’s loves, losses and endless fresh surprises.

Alone in Berlin

Synopsis

ALONE IN BERLIN sees two-time Academy® Award-winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr Banks), three-time Golden Globe-nominee and Emmy Award winner (Into The Storm) Brendan Gleeson (The Guard), and Golden Globe-nominee Daniel Brühl (Rush) star in a powerfully moving, true-life drama-thriller set in Second World War Berlin, directed by acclaimed actor turned filmmaker Vincent Perez (La Reine Margot), based on the international bestseller by revered German novelist Hans Fallada.

Berlin 1940. The city is paralyzed by fear. Otto and Anna Quangel are a working class couple living in a shabby apartment block trying, like everyone else, to stay out of trouble under Nazi rule. But when their only child is killed fighting at the front, their loss drives them to an extraordinary act of resistance. They start to drop anonymous postcards all over the city attacking Hitler and his regime. If caught, it means certain execution.

Soon their campaign comes to the attention of the Gestapo inspector Escherich and a murderous game of cat-and-mouse begins. But the game serves only to strengthen Otto and Anna’s sense of purpose and a renewed love for each other. Slowly their drab lives and marriage are transformed as they unite in their quiet but profound rebellion...

Over 60 years after its initial publication, Hans Fallada’s novel, written directly after the Second World War, became a worldwide bestseller. Based on a true story, the powerful and redemptive novel was described by Primo Levi as “the greatest book ever written about German resistance to the Nazis.”

Synopsis

Tuesday 27th February 7.00pm

Tickets £15.00; Movie Deal £31.95

Charles Gounod’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy returns to the stage of the Gran Teatre del Liceu after an absence of over three decades.

Co-produced with the Santa Fe Opera, this production is conducted by Josep Pons and directed by Stephen Lawless. The action is moved to the context of the American Civil War (1861-1865), providing clear context for the insurmountable divisions between the Capulets and the Montagues. The lovers live in a classic mortuary, foreshadowing their fatal destiny from the very start of their infatuation.

Hailed by Plácido Domingo as “one of the most exciting opera divas of today and tomorrow”, Aida Garifullina stars as Juliet alongside Saimir Pirgu, who has been described by Opera Today as "one of the world's most important interpreters of lyric tenor roles".

Synopsis

Tuesday 24th October 7.00pm

Tickets £15.00; Movie Deal £31.95

Envy, conspiracy, love, jealousy, revenge and ultimately, forgiveness come together in this Verdi’s intensely passionate masterpiece.

The political intrigue at the heart of the opera initially aroused the anger of contemporary censors; indeed, Verdi and his librettist were compelled to make alter the setting, moving the action away from the original Sweden to the distant US: Boston.

The great Polish tenor Piotr Beczała returns to the Liceu in one of his most acclaimed roles, singing alongside soprano Ekaterina Metlova. Vincent Lemaire’s staging and Vincent Boussard’s sets reinforce the dark and mysterious atmosphere surrounding the piece, which features lavish costumes by Christian Lacroix. The cast, directed by the true Verdi specialist Renato Palumbo, also features two Verdi leaders: Dolora Zajick and Marco Caria.

Opera in 3 Acts. Sung in Italian.

Synopsis

Tuesday 12th December 6.30pm

Tickets £15.00; Movie Deal £31.95

“Who am I? I’m a poet. What do I do? I write. And how do I live? I live!” – Rodolfo, Act I

No one better described the half-starved, struggling artists of mid-nineteenth century Paris than the writer Henri Murger in Scènes de la Vie de Bohème.

These bohemian artists are ready to burn a manuscript to try to keep warm yet, in an era of triumphant bourgeois materialism, they dream of another existence. Taking up these scenes of Bohemian life, Puccini offers us a heart-breaking love story and some of the most beautiful music in the history of opera, telling the story of the poet Rodolfo and the fragile Mimi.

The staging of this new production has been entrusted to Claus Guth, who sets the drama in a future devoid of hope, in which love and art become the sole means of transcendence.

Conductor Gustavo Dudamel (currently Music & Artistic Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) leads a fantastic cast, including Sonya Yoncheva, Aida Garifullina, Atalla Ayan, Alessio Arduini and Artur Ruciński.

Opera in four acts. Sung in Italian.

Don Carlos - Live from the Opéra de Paris

Don Carlos - Live from the Opéra de Paris

Synopsis

Thursday 19th October 5.00pm

Tickets £15.00; Movie Deal £31.95

“Why should I be indiscreet when my silence can do him no harm, and possibly protect him? Why warn the sleeper of the storm cloud overhead?... It is enough for me to guide it away from you in silence, so that you may waken to clear skies.” - The Marquis of Posa, Don Carlos, Schiller, Act IV, Scène 6

If there exists an opera that defies boundaries at every level, be they dramatic or dramaturgical, it is certainly Verdi’s Don Carlos, a work by an Italian composer created in French, and in which the climate of war with Spain and the melancholy of human beings draw our attention to the fate to Flanders.

Politics, religion, history and psychoanalysis are all entwined here, increasingly exacerbating the fears and taboos between the protagonists. Krzysztof Warlikowski strips down a tragedy haunted by ghosts, and places the intimate at the heart of an imaginary fresco truer than history itself. Along with Philippe Jordan, he reveals to the public the very first version of this great five-act opera: the version modified by Verdi himself for the work’s first performance in 1867. Echoing this historic version, the Paris Opera will be scheduling the five-act version of Don Carlos in Italian in 2019.

Opera in 5 Acts. Sung in French.
