Kendal Mountain Festival - UK Tour 2020

Fire up your imagination! Watch an incredible collection of short adventure films on the big screen, stories of human endurance and breathtaking environments.

Plus hear from the amazing Anna McNuff, joining the festival on stage. Anna is an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker. She recently completed an incredible adventure running the distance of 100 marathons through Britain completely barefoot!

Named by The Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time, Anna has a capacity for feats of exceptional endurance, most of them solo, having previously run self-supported along New Zealand’s 3000km Te Araroa Trail.

Festival Director Steve Scott will present the evening and there’ll be prizes from the tour sponsors.

WHY? 'Awesome Saturday night out @kendalmountainfestival. Watched the most awe-inspiring, jaw-droppingly beautiful line up of short films and listened to the legend @annamcnuff talk about her South American travel tales. Always honest, inspiring, crazy and funny' @sweatybettyruns | Kingston, March 2019

National Theatre Live: Frankenstein

Captured live on stage in 2011, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

By Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Directed by Academy Award® winner Danny Boyle, Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

WHY? Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale

Run time 123 mins.

Royal Opera House Live: Giselle (12A)

Encore screening of the 2016 production from the Royal Opera House.

The greatest of all Romantic ballets, Peter Wright’s production of Marius Petipa’s classic is a tale of betrayal, the supernatural and love that transcends death. Starring Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov.

The role of Giselle provides the dancer with many technical and dramatic challenges, from the character’s early love to her poignant descent into madness and her final gesture of forgiveness from beyond the grave. The first act of the ballet is filled with historical detail and rustic colour. By contrast, the second, ‘white’ act plunges the audience into an eerie moonlit forest haunted by the ethereal Wilis.

WHY? With its combination of memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet

But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson Ben Greenbaum, a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.

Summerland (12)

Dir: Jessica Swale 2020 | 100 mins

Summerland follows the story of fiercely independent folklore investigator, Alice (Gemma Arterton). Alice secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of magic. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is haunted by a love affair from her past.

When spirited young Frank (Lucas Bond), an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and curiosity awaken Alice’s deeply buried emotions.

WHY? Starring Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Courtney, Penelope Wilton and Lucas Bond

National Theatre Live: All My Sons

Encore screenings.

Captured live in 2019 from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

WHY? Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast including Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

All My Sons is an Old Vic co-production with Headlong
