Two showings 2.30pm and 7.00pm.

Queen Anne holds the throne while her kingdom is at war with the French. But her ill-health and strange sensibilities mean it’s down to a trusted friend to take charge within a turbulent palace. The Favourite is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and stars Olivia Coleman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone.

It’s the early 18th Century, and England is ruled by Queen Anne (Olivia Coleman). Despite the country being at war with the French, the Queen is fragile, physically and mentally. It’s down to her most trusted ally and friend, Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) to rule secretly in her stead.

In the midst of the chaos caused by the quick to anger ruler, a new servant named Abigail (Emma Stone) is hired by the palace. Charming and endearing, Abigail quickly wins Sarah over who then takes the servant under her wing, promising a better life.

Unfortunately, Sarah’s attention is pulled from Abigail and the Queen to the brutal politics of war. In her absence, Abigail steps in as the Queen’s new aide. Taking full advantage of this opportunity, Abigail has a lazer-sharp focus on her new potential life – and won’t let anything stand in her way.

The Favourite is the newest film from surreal filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer). Starring frequent collaborator Olivia Coleman (Murder on the Orient Express) as Queen Anne, Rachel Weisz (Disobedience) and Emma Stone (La La Land) co-star in an unusual historical drama that’s set to become a future classic.

All tickets £5.

Academy Award ® nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Academy Award ® winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures’ Green Book. In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

All tickets £5.

Daneside Theatre

The Daneside Theatre

Daneside Theatre is an independent theatre with a charitable status that aims to provide a venue for the community that all ages can benefit from.

The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre near the leisure centre. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows. The original theatre built in the 1980s has been extended. The extension has rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.

These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows. pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have during our season something to all tastes.

For further details of our shows this current season see the What’s On section.
