Overview

One of the most gorgeous Technicolor creations ever to grace the silver screen, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s The Red Shoes is one of the few films that truly earns its masterpiece status. Victoria Page (the ravishing Moira Shearer) is a preternaturally gifted ballerina newly taken on by a successful ballet company. The company’s tyrannical director, Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook), works Victoria to the bone, accepting nothing short of perfection. When Victoria falls in love with young composer Julian (Marius Goring), her dedication to her art is called into question. Loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale of the same name, the film’s stunning 14-minute ballet sequence is one of the most glorious of its kind.

Why You Should See This Film

Often counted among the greatest films of all time by many filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Brian De Palma and Spike Lee, this is perhaps the film that best expresses the agony and ecstasy of creative endeavours. Newly restored back to its original glory, don’t miss the rare opportunity to witness this marvel on the big screen.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CINEMA COVID-19 REGULATIONS

We’re excited to be reopening our doors to you, and have put a number of protocols in place to ensure your safety.

  • Limited seats are available to each session to allow for social distancing. Our lovely staff will seat you at the beginning of your session so please be on time and ready to show your ticket on your phone or printed out (phone preferred) so that we can admit you without contact.
  • Cinema doors will open 15 minutes before your advertised session time so that you can be seated and use that time to get comfortable, sanitised and make a trip to the bar if you’d like (our cocktails are very good!).
  • There is now (at least) a half-hour gap between sessions, so that our staff are able to do a deep clean of the cinema.
  • Gift Passes can now be redeemed on all sessions excluding special events.
