A Most Wanted Man
Sep 2 @ 7:00 pm

a most wanted manDirected by Anton Corbijn

122 mins, rated PG

When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man’s true identity – oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? Based on John le Carré’s novel, A MOST WANTED MAN is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene.

NEW THIS SEASON – TWO THEATRES ARE BETTER THAN ONE!!

We are thrilled to announce The Capitol Theatre and The Civic Theatre’s collaborative project PERFORMANCE ON SCREEN throughout the 2014-15 season!

In partnership with MEI Events International and Cineplex Front Row Center, both of your hometown theatres will be screening full scale pre-recorded live performances from The Royal Opera House, The National Theatre of Britain and The Globe Theatre, Exhibition on Screen and Classic Concert Series.

All screenings are on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm.

This eagerly awaited exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts was the first ever retrospective devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet.  Spanning this enigmatic and, at times, controversial artist’s entire career Manet: Portraying Life brought together works from across Europe, Asia and the USA.

Manet’s portraiture has never been explored in exhibition form, despite it forming around half of his artistic output. He painted his family, friends and the literary, political and artistic figures of the day, giving life not only to his subjects but also to Parisian society. The exhibition consisted of more than 50 works; including portraits of his most frequent sitter, his wife Suzanne Leenhoff, luminaries of the period; Antonin Proust, Émile Zola and Stéphane Mallarmé, along with scenes from everyday life revealing Manet’s forward-thinking, modern approach to portraiture.

The film revealed exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the exhibition’s preparation, which normally go unseen by the public, and interwove a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and 19th century Paris.  Host Tim Marlow and special guests looked at the craft of one of the all-time great artists, the ‘father of modern art’.
