We sell advance tickets for all our shows! Just click on a showtime.

This week at the Playhouse is predominantly British, starting with the Hamilton premiere of Red Joan, starring Dame Judi Dench in the extraordinary true story of one of the most influential spies in living history. If you want a chance to win a pair of tickets to Red Joan, keep reading! We're giving you another chance to see the popular documentary of another extraordinary woman (who loves giraffes!) We can't talk about Fight Club. Sunday will be a fun day with Deconstructing the Beatles (Side One of Abbey Road) followed later in the evening with one of the best rock films of all time, The Who's Quadrophenia (tied in with the some significant anniversaries, which is why you will definitely want to mark the occasion!) The British theme continues with Monty Python's Life of Brian ("he's not the Messiah! He's a very naughty boy!") We have a few more screenings of Us and we finish up with a free screening of an Oscar-winning documentary, presented by the United Way Halton & Hamilton.

"While Joan's early years are absolutely fascinating, it is the refreshing concept of Dench's elderly communist agent that gives this drama its real bite and edge." - Daily Mirror

“A good old-fashioned British spy thriller with a bewitching female heroine (or anti-heroine, if you will) played by the excellent actresses Judi Dench and (as her younger self) Sophie Cookson, Red Joan revisits the incredible real-life spy case of Melita Norwood. It is directed with a strong sense for character by Trevor Nunn, the former director of the Royal Shakespeare Co.
