We're delighted to be able to bring you these special encore broadcasts of the original cast of this uproarious show which was a runaway hit both in London's West End and on Broadway. Don't miss your chance to see the amazingly entertaining and Tony Award-winning performance by James Corden, the current host of CBS' The Late Late Show. Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers(!). Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Diana Damrau and Aleksandra Kurzak lead a world-class cast in Katie Mitchell’s new production of Donizetti’s tragic opera. Lucia di Lammermoor is Donizetti's tragic masterpiece. The score produced not only some of his most beautiful but also his most dramatically potent music. Other highlights include the acclaimed sextet ‘Chi mi frena in tal momento’, and the opera’s closing Tomb Scene, with its heartfelt and sombre depiction of Edgardo’s loss. Director Katie Mitchell sets The Royal Opera’s new production in the 1840s and focusses on how an intelligent woman, failed by the men in her life, experiences a horrifying mental breakdown..

• Richard Wagner Parsifal: Prelude and Good Fridays Spell

• Anton Bruckner Symphony No. 3 in D minor

Andris Nelsons "seems to draw the best from every orchestra he works with," wrote The New York Times and now this outstanding interpreter of Richard Wagner will conduct a new production of Parsifal at the Bayreuth Festival in the summer of 2016. In advance, he presents the Prelude and the Karfreitagszauber to the audiences of the Berlin Philharmonic. This will be followed by Anton Bruckner's heroic Third Symphony, dedicated to Wagner "with the most profound respect", in which Bruckner's unique sound, inspired by the organ, unfolds its full and majestic potential for the first time.

Regular Tivoli Ticket Prices

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Inventive and wildly fun, NUTS! recounts the unbelievable true story of John Romulus Brinkley, a Kansas doctor who discovered in 1917 that he could cure impotence by transplanting goat testicles into men. From there, the story only gets more bizarre. Mixing hand-drawn animated reenactments, interviews, archival footage and a very unreliable narrator, NUTS! traces Brinkley's rise from poverty and obscurity to the heights of celebrity, wealth and influence. Along the way, he transplants thousands of goat testicles, amasses an enormous fortune, is (sort of) elected Governor of Kansas, invents junk mail and the infomercial, builds the world’s most powerful radio station and generally annoys the heck out of the establishment.

Filmmaker Penny Lane (OUR NIXON) has skillfully borrowed a page from her subject – charming viewers into believing the unbelievable, building their trust and excitement, until the final chapter bares the painful truth and reveals the doctor for what he truly was. NUTS! reminds us that our love of (and need for) compelling narratives is exactly what makes us so endlessly susceptible to being conned.

Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Royal Academy, London. From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists' gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public'

s enduring facination with gardens today. Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, "Apart from painting and gardening, I'm no good at anything.". For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.

Wiener-Dog
Opens Friday, July 8

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Welcome to the doghouse: the latest hilariously biting comedy from Todd Solondz is a twisted Lassie for misanthropes. It follows the wayward adventures of a dachshund who passes from oddball owner to oddball owner - including the world's worst mom, a beleaguered screenwriter, and the grownup incarnation of Welcome to the Dollhouse's Dawn Wiener - whose radically dysfunctional lives are all impacted by the pooch. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Zosia Mamet, Wiener-Dog is a tragically funny, wondrously warped look at the absurdity of life (and death) from one of contemporary cinema's most fearless and unique voices.item7

Opens Friday, July 8

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

After stumbling upon a bizarre "competitive endurance tickling" video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking-the sender mocks Farrier's sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity. Discovering the truth becomes Farrier's obsession, despite increasingly sinister threats and warnings. With humor and determination, Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve summon up every resource available to get to the bottom of this tickling worm hole.item9

The new film from the director of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is a hilarious tale about a juvenile delinquent left in the care of rough yet loving foster parents who live off the wilds of the New Zealand bush.Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Director Taika Waititi masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison.

Opens Friday, July 22

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

After six successful seasons on television on the British series Absolutely Fabulous, Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) make the transition to the big screen. Appropriate for their movie debut, Eddie and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more! As Eddie would say: "It's a great, bloody movie, sweetie darling."

ZappaEat That Question:
Frank Zappa in His Own Words
Opens Friday, August 5

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Born in 1940, FRANK ZAPPA - self-taught composer, musician, bandleader, producer and independent thinker -first transcribed his avant-garde, Varese-influenced compositions onto paper at fourteen. He only began to write lyrics in his early twenties. Nevertheless, upon the '66 release of his debut album, FREAK OUT! (with THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION), he swiftly became the most quotable voice of dissent in popular music.

A subtle, skillful montage constructed solely from historic footage, EAT THAT QUESTION- FRANK ZAPPA IN HIS OWN WORDS is an energetic celebration of this outspoken maestro. Zappa died far too early, in 1993, of cancer. How important then, that such unforgettable Zappa interviews and performances across three decades have been painstakingly gathered by director Thorsten Schutte from the obscure vaults of TV stations around the world to create this unique 90 minute feature documentary. Following Zappa from clean-shaven, besuited youth, to fearless chief freak, to his relentlessly productive final days before his death at 52, this new film seats us right up front from the start; close enough to Zappa to read the flickering emotions in his eyes.item11


GurukulamGurukulam
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

In vivid and sensuous detail, GURUKULAM follows a group of students and their teacher as they confront fundamental questions about the nature of reality and self-identity at a remote forest ashram in southern India. Daily chores, meditation, ritual, and rigorous study are woven together connecting the natural and spiritual worlds in moments of surprising revelation and comic contradiction. Deeply observational and experiential, GURUKULAM evokes the presence of the place and a tactile sense of the sacred. The richly layered soundscape and the intimate imagery bring us into a place of extraordinary beauty and simplicity. From Swami Dayananda's first lesson:"Saying is only an expression of what you see," Gurukulam is a rare invitation to look, listen, and experience a contemplative rhythm of life as old as the Bhagavad Gita and as new as present-day India.

evahessefilmEva Hesse
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Eva Hesse (1936-1970) is one of America s foremost postwar artists. Her pioneering sculptures, using latex, fiberglass, and plastics, helped establish the post-minimalist movement. Dying of a brain tumor at age 34, she had a mere decade-long career that, despite its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works that defy easy categorization. EVA HESSE, the first feature-length appreciation of her life and work, makes superb use of the artist's voluminous journals, her correspondence with close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, and contemporary as well as archival interviews with fellow artists (among them, Richard Serra, Robert Mangold, Dan Graham) who recall her passionate, ambitious, tenacious personality. Art critic Arthur Danto has written that her work is:  "full of life, of eros, even of comedy...Each piece vibrates with originality and mischief." The documentary captures these qualities, but also the psychic struggles of an artist who, in the downtown New York art scene of the 1960s, was one of the few women to make work that was taken seriously in a field dominated by male pop artists and minimalists.
