Spalding's South Holland Centre has big interest in Cats
The hottest news from the centre this week is that the feline fantasy film Cats is set to be one of the biggest-selling titles of the upcoming movie season.
So despite critics sharpening their claws on this furry musical movie, undeterred South Holland audiences have been buying tickets in droves.
The movie soundtrack includes all of the original classics from the West End production, such as Memory and Mr Mistoffelees, and many of us are looking forward to hearing renditions of these much loved songs from a cast of A-list ‘jellicles’ including Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and James Corden.
So come along and make up your own mind at a screening at the centre between Friday, January 24, and Thursday, January 30.
However, if you are more classical ballet than musical theatre, The Royal Ballet’s latest production of The Sleeping Beauty should tick all of the boxes.
Captured live from Covent Garden, this sumptuous production will be broadcast on the centre’s big screen on Sunday, January 19, at 2pm. You could even make an afternoon of it and book ahead for our pre-ballet Sunday lunch at the Centre at 12.30pm.
Meanwhile lovers of contemporary art can skip an expensive visit to the capital’s Royal Academy of Arts and get a close view of the Lucian Freud Self Portrait exhibition on the big screen here tomorrow (Wednesday) at 2pm.
Across a period of 64 years, Freud produced more than 50 paintings, drawings and prints of his own image which have been brought together in a landmark exhibition in London and screened to cinemas around the world.
Tickets for this ‘Exhibition on Screen’ are just £10.
Finally, if you are planning to come to one of our screenings of Kinky Boots the Musical (recorded live from London’s Adelphi Theatre) on Saturday, February 8, at 2pm or 7pm, it’s worth noting that both are proving extremely popular with an imminent sell-out warning for the 7pm broadcast. Other movies selling well are Knives Out (12A) starring Daniel Craig and the Golden Globe winning war movie epic, 1917 (15).
