News from the South Holland Centre
what do the following have in common: Billy Elliot The Musical; A Streetcar Named Desire; One Direction Where We Are – The Concert Film?
The answer... well, we couldn’t ignore the recent announcement that these high-profile performances were being broadcast to cinemas, so we squeezed all three into the South Holland Centre Autumn programme at the eleventh hour.
So late, in fact, that they missed being featured in our printed live guide which has just been waved off to the printing presses (to arrive mid-August).
So unless you’ve seen the news on our website, you’d better read on for all the details.
A live performance of multi award-winning Billy Elliot The Musical will be beamed direct from London’s Victoria Palace theatre to Spalding’s cinema screen on Sunday, September 28 at 2pm.
Based on the Academy Award nominated film first released in 2000, this production has won the hearts of millions since it opened in the West End and has gone on to captivate audiences around the world. This live screening carries a 12A certificate.
Then there’s the chance to see National Theatre Live’s broadcast of a timeless masterpiece that has got everyone talking – Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire.
Gillian Anderson has had critics in raptures for her portrayal of the crumbling Blanche DuBois – including a five-star review from The Observer’s Susannah Clapp who notes that Anderson’s portrayal of Blanche’s ‘departure is a masterclass in how to make audiences weep’.
Recorded live from the Young Vic, this exceptional play is rated 12A and will be screened at the Centre on Tuesday, September 30, at 7pm.
Meanwhile, here’s something for younger audiences (and their mums!) to smile about – the ultimate cinematic experience for 1D fans!
Filmed live from one of their dates at the iconic San Siro Stadium in Milan, One Direction Where We Are – The Concert Film is a global cinema event taking place on Saturday, October 11.
A one-off opportunity for fans to relive every moment on the big screen – well two actually, we have screenings at both 2pm and 7pm.
We are constantly thrilled and amazed at the special screening events we are being able to offer our audiences: from blockbuster art exhibitions such as Tate Modern’s Henri Matisse :The Cut-Outs which we screen on Thursday, October 2, at 2pm (with a lovely lunch option) to the Bolshoi Ballet season beamed from Moscow, and much more. It’s worth noting that these events are offered to us much closer to their actual date than say a ‘live’ theatre tour booking. So it’s definitely worth keeping a close eye on our website for all the ticket release news.
