Yuli: The Carlos Acosta Story

director: Icíar Bollaín
starring: Carlos Acosta, Santiago Alfonso, Keyvin Martínez
Yuli: The Carlos Acosta Story

The life of Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta is explored in this entrancing biopic from Spanish actress turned director Icíar Bollaín and Ken Loach's regular screenwriter Paul Laverty. Based on Acosta's autobiography No Way Home, the film explores key events of the dancer's life, from his impoverished childhood to his ground-breaking role as the Royal Ballet's first black Romeo. Blending dramatic recreations with archive footage and interpretive dance sequences, the result is an ambitious and captivating celebration of a great dancer and his remarkable talent.


 


Why our films (usually) have to start promptly at 8.30pm

Although our films are scheduled to start at 8.30pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8.30pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.

Please note that some longer films will be scheduled to start at 8pm.
