Busy month at Gorey cinema
NOVEMBER is another busy month for event cinema at Movies@Gorey.
On Thursday, November 16, at 7 p.m., NT Live presents a live broadcast of Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical ‘Follies.’ Set in New York in 1971, the show features a cast of 37, and an orchestra of 21. Directed by Dominic Cooke, the show stars Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton.
The OperAfternoons season continues on Saturday, November 18, at 3 p.m. with ‘Aida’ from Sydney Harbour. There could be no grander setting for Verdi’s masterful work than Sydney Harbour, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun.
On Tuesday, November 21, at 7 p.m., and again on Saturday, November 25, at 3 p.m. Gorey cinema presents ‘David Hockney at the Royal Academy of Art’. Hockney is widely considered Britain’s most popular artist. Now entering his ninth decade, he shows no evidence of losing his trademark boldness. Featuring in-depth interviews with Hockney, this revealing film focuses on two exhibitions held in 2012 and 2016 at the Royal Academy of art in London.
Finally, on Tuesday, November 28, at 7.15 p.m. Oscar Wilde’s ‘A Woman of No Importance’ is broadcast live from the Vaudeville Theatre, London. Eve Best and Anne Reid star in this new classically staged production directed by Dominic Dromgoole.
