 The King and I image

The King and I

Filmed Live at The Palladium

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times) Kelli O’Hara (Anna) takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) in a "powerhouse" (The Times) performance.

With one of the finest scores ever written including; Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance, and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre – it is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.

“Five stars for a sumptuous King and I. Book Now. It’s a hit” - The Times

Pet Shop Boys: It Couldn’t Happen Here image

Pet Shop Boys: It Couldn’t Happen Here (15)

Heavenly Films

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Jack Bond

The first feature-length film starring the Pet Shop Boys, It Couldn’t Happen Here finds Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe on an extraordinary odyssey from the coast to London encountering the likes of Barbara Windsor, Gareth Hunt and Joss Ackland on a journey that is in turns brightly comic and darkly sinister.

Inventively directed by Jack Bond (An Artist’s Eye, Anti-Clock), the only filmmaker ever invited to collaborate on a documentary with Salvador Dali, It Couldn't Happen Here is a mordantly funny prime slice of pop surrealism and a deeply English take on the road movie. The film is chock full of songs from the group’s classic first two albums, including the hits “West End Girls: and "What Have I Done to Deserve This?"

Hardly ever screened and, to date, never issued on DVD, this is a rare chance to catch this unique late eighties cinematic gem from synth-pop’s most intelligent, enduring and much-loved performers. As the critic Anthony Nield has observed:  ‘What other film offers up muscle men, mud wrestlers, thigh-flashing nuns and the fleeting glimpse of Neil Tennant in a tasselled gold lame suit?’ Miss this screening at your peril.

Shaft image

Shaft (15)

Soul Jazz Records continues its Blaxploitation classic film screenings at Regent Street Cinema with this rare one-off screening of the classic ‘Shaft’ (1971) on a fantastic 35-mm print!

Shaft (1971) is one of the very first and most successful Blaxploitation films ever made.

Lead actor Richard Roundtree, director Gordon Parks and soundtrack composer Isaac Hayes all helped create this tense action masterpiece featuring the iconic black private detective John Shaft.

Shaft is an important landmark in black American cinema – featuring an ensemble mainly black cast, the first ever black film director to work at a major studio (MGM), and a plotline aimed at an African-American audience. The film benefitted from all three factors – going to take over $10 million at the box office and in the process saving MGM from bankruptcy.

Equally successful was the stunning soundtrack by Isaac Hayes – a blend of wah wah funk, jazz, heavy percussion and a full orchestra which – like the movie itself – became the template for all the many Blaxploitation films that followed in the wake of the success of Shaft.

The film will be introduced by Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records) and Soul Jazz Records DJs will also be laying down some heavy funk and soul in the bar before and after the film so get on down! Can you dig it?

When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

"Consistently, relentlessly hilarious, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are on top form in this deranged court comedy" - The Independent
