The true story of the best-selling celebrity biographer Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) who, having made her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Tallulah Bankhead, falls on hard times. Barely able to afford her bills and desperate for money, Israel soon hatches a scheme to forge letters by famous writers and sell them to bookstores and collectors. When the dealers start to catch on, Lee recruits a dubious friend Jack (Richard E Grant) to help her continue her self-destructive cycle of trickery and deceit.

#Omigodyouguys The Athenaeum Masqueraders are back with LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL!

 From the NODA SW Best Musical nominated group who brought shows like 9 to 5 The Musical, The Addams Family and The Full Monty, The Athenaeum Masqueraders return to the Athenaeum to bring the stage adaptation of METRO GLDWYN-MAYER motion picture LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical!

About the Show:

The smash hit Broadway and West End Musical based on the best loved movie follows beautiful and popular sorority sister Elle Woods who loves to be pampered and is passionate about pink. When she is dumped by her boyfriend Warner Huntington III for a more “serious” girlfriend she puts down the credit cards and picks up the books. Packing up her trusty pooch, Bruiser, she bags herself a place at the prestigious Harvard Law School to try and win him back. With the support of her new friends she learns that you can be both smart and fashionable.

Featuring smash hit musical numbers such as Omigod, Positive and Bend and Snap by LAURENCE O’KEEFE and NELL BENJAMIN, this is "Musical theatre at its best - great songs, witty lines.  Smart, sassy, spectacular." - The Daily Telegraph. You are in for a real treat with this show.

While visiting a PoW camp near Manchester at the end of WWII, Margaret, the daughter of the manager of the local football team, notices young German soldier Bert Trautmann. He is so taken by Bert's prowess as a goal-keeper that he gets him out of the camp to play for his local team. Margaret and Bert's love blossoms despite local hostility and resentment. In the meantime, Bert's heroics in goal are noticed by Manchester City F.C. Rather than going back to Germany, Bert marries Margaret and signs for Man City initially causing outrage to thousands of fans. You don’t need to be a football fan to enjoy this moving and uplifting fim.

Director Ralph Fiennes captures the raw physicality and brilliance of the ballet world’s finest, Rudolf Nureyev, whose escape to the West stunned the world at the height of the Cold War. With his magnetic presence, Nureyev emerged as ballet's most famous star, a wild and beautiful dancer limited by the world of 1950s Leningrad. His flirtation with Western artists and ideas led him into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the KGB.

Listen you lot, Christmas can take a holiday this year cos Flashheart’s in town. And I know what you’re thinking, can Warminster cope with this much excitement? Woof woof! My old mate Eddie has invited me and all you less attractive mortals to join him as he throws away his freedom. Then we can all sit back, codpiece in hand, and watch as he outmanoeuvres the Bishop, discovers an interesting wine from the new world and escapes from the dungeon of certain death. 

If you book early enough (by 27th September), then you may be lucky enough to be close enough to smell my pheromones. And don’t worry ladies, there will be plenty left for you too. 

Signed, Flash

P.S. Isn’t this the multi-nominated production team. I hear they’re very good...yes, Lord Flashheart...Ouch...Yes, of course if you were directing it it would’ve won all the awards.

1 hour 50 minutes          Cert. 12A               (UK - 2019)   
A feel good film about a London music executive (Daniel Mays) who heads to Cornwall on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ struggling to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. Attempting to overcome the fishermen’s scepticism about the music business, he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served before the film.

        The deeply touching Oscar nominated Capernaum (Chaos) tells the story of Zain (Zain al-Rafeea), a Lebanese boy as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-year-old ‘adult’. Fleeing his negligent parents, he survives through his wits on the streets, where he meets Ethiopian migrant worker Rahil, who provides him with shelter and food in return for taking care of her baby son. After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain finally seeks justice and sues his parents for giving him life.
