Living in a rural area no longer means that you don’t have access to the culture and arts that city-dwellers enjoy. Thanks to the wonder of technology, opera, ballet, theatre and music events are being streamed to cinemas across the world.
Many of these wonderful productions are live, so cinema-goers get the real theatre experience, knowing that anything could happen!
Event cinema, like theatre, takes a break over the summer, but September is when it all starts back up again.
We have already enjoyed the launch of Nick Cave’s new album, Skeleton Tree, and marvelled at Helen McCrory in The Deep Blue Sea.
This month still has a lot of offer though, with a production showing almost every week through September.
A special Beatles documentary is being screened on Thursday, September 15. This incredibly insightful film by Ron Howard explores how the Fab Four came together and goes behind the scenes to reveal their inner workings as a band. It will also feature an exclusive 30 minute performance, filmed at Shea Stadium in 1965, fully restored and remastered to give the real Beatles experience.
Continuing the musical theme, international superstar Michael Bublé hits cinema screens with TOUR STOP 148 on Sunday, September 25. Filmed during his sold-out To Be Loved tour, the film features thrilling performances of his biggest hits, intercut with behind-the-scenes footage.
If you are a fan of Rory Kinnear, don’t miss him in the National Theatre production of The Threepenny Opera. This is a darkly comic take on Brecht and Weill’s raucous musical and is showing live from London on Thursday, September 22. Please note that this production does contain scenes of a sexual nature, violence and filthy language!
Tickets for all these productions – and more – are available at www.lightcinemas.co.uk
