Eric Clapton: At The Royal Albert Hall – Slowhand at 70

Eric Clapton Wex Ex GoreyEric Clapton: Live at the Royal Albert Hall captures a momentous night for legendary guitarist Eric Clapton. A celebration of the artist’s 70th year and a fine toast to his close relationship with the Royal Albert Hall itself. Eric Clapton is the first artist to play over 200 performances at this classic venue.

As Clapton guides the audience through his extensive set list, the show builds from an intimate start, reminiscent of a smoky blues club setting, to the epic finale of the massive tracks ‘Crossroads’ and ‘Cocaine’. Clapton and his band bring the audience to their feet as they fill the iconic Royal Albert Hall with sound.

Marking Clapton’s 50 years at the top of the music business, the film captures a night to remember. At this outstanding performance, recorded on 21 May 2015, Clapton is backed by the equally renowned musicians Paul Carrack, Steve Gadd, Chris Stainton, Andy Fairweather Low and Nathan East. Clapton delivers a career-defining playlist that includes ‘Layla’, ‘I Shot the Sherriff’, ‘Tears in Heaven’, ‘Wonderful Tonight’ and many more. From the Mississippi blues of Robert Johnson that inspired him to play guitar through Cream, Derek & The Dominos and his long solo career, all aspects of Clapton’s musical journey are included.

Cinema viewers will also enjoy an exclusive featurette presented by Paul Gambaccini which includes interviews with Paul Carrack, Andy Fairweather Low, Hugh Fielder and Paul Sexton. The featurette gives an insight into Eric Clapton as a performer and helps explain why The Royal Albert Hall has held such a special place in his heart for so many years.

Aida on Sydney Harbour in Movies@Gorey

Playing Tuesday, September 15th (One Night Only)- Book Now

In Aida, Verdi masterfully puts the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe: where kingdoms rise and fall and the sands of time grind onwards.
There could be no grander setting for such an opera than Sydney Harbour itself, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun.

Production Image 2Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour has become a huge part of the cultural landscape, combining
all of the things Sydney does best: world-class opera, champagne and fine dining, sunsets and spectacle on the harbour’s edge. It’s a monumental undertaking, with a team of more than 700 people involved in the project before a single note is heard over the harbour.
Production Image 1Aida is the biggest opera they’ve ever performed on the opera stage. But amid all of the spectacle, the famous ‘Triumphal March’, battle scenes and ancient temples, there’s an emotional heart.
Long after the fireworks have faded from the sky and Amneris sings her quiet, concluding prayer, you’ll see the true mastery of this opera: it is at once an historic epic and an utterly relatable human tragedy.
Running time: Approximately 2 hours 25 minutes including a 15 minute interval.
Performed in Italian with English translations

 

 

Concerto – A Beethoven Journey in Movies@Gorey

Playing Tuesday, September 8th (One Night Only)- Book Now

Leif Ove Andsnes is considered to be one of the top pianists of the age. In this unique film, we witness his four year journey to perform and record the five Beethoven piano concerti. With rare insights into the mind of a world-class pianist and access to life ‘on the road’ and at home, Andsnes gives a particularly candid view of the world of a contemporary classical musician. Against the wonderful backbone of Leif Ove playing these five pieces, we also track Beethoven’s life from new-kid-on-the-block in Vienna to greatest composer alive by the time he writes the 5th concerto.

The Bad Education Movie in Movies@Gorey

From Friday, August 21st – Book Now

The Bad Education Movie

This summer sees multi-award winning comedian Jack Whitehall hit the big screens as the infamous Alfie Wickers from the smash hit comedy ‘Bad Education’. The hotly anticipated THE BAD EDUCATION MOVIE will open in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Friday 21st August 2015.

The big screen adaptation sees Jack Whitehall (winner of the British Comedy Award ‘King of Comedy’ 2012-2014) reunite with Harry Enfield (Kevin & Perry Go Large), Mathew Horne (‘Gavin & Stacey’), Sarah Solemani (‘Him & Her’) and his class of pupils Ethan Lawrence, Layton Williams, Nikki Runeckles, Kae Alexander, Weruche Opia, Jack Binstead and Charlie Wernham. The series cast will join forces with Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, The Railway Man), Joanna Scanlan (Stardust, Notes on a Scandal), Talulah Riley (Pride & Prejudice, Inception), Iain Glenn (‘Game of Thrones’) and Clarke Peters (Marley & Me, ‘The Wire’).

Alfie Wickers is probably the worst teacher to (dis)grace the English education system, but no one cares about their pupils quite as much as Alfie does. Having completed their GCSEs, Alfie is keen for his class to join him on one last hurrah and what follows is a coming of age story like no other, the best school trip ever!
‘Bad Education’ launched on the BBC in summer 2012 and ran for three series. It regularly achieved a cumulative 3.5 million viewers across the BBC platforms. The show went from strength to strength with series 2 and 3 being amongst the most viewed shows on the BBC i-player, hitting highs of 2.9 million requests.
THE BAD EDUCATION MOVIE is co-written by Jack Whitehall and Freddy Syborn (‘Bad Education’) and directed by Elliot Hegarty (‘Bad Education’).
