Wilde Wednesdays

New for the start of the 2019 season and following on from the success of the Royal Opera House live screenings, which also continue this spring, we are excited to bring you a new theatrical venture with the Oscar Wilde Season, screened in the cinema.

The four classic Wilde plays include the ever popular The Importance of Being Earnest. Though not live transmissions, these were recorded from live performances from the Vaudeville Theatre in the heart of London’s West End.

Complimentary glass of wine to those in period costume!

To launch and give occasion to this first season of Wilde Wednesdays we invite you to come along to the plays in the cinema in Period costume – a free glass of wine or other age-appropriate drink will be given free to anyone attending in Victorian / Edwardian period costume.

The Wilde season is planned to be the first in a venture of bringing recorded live national or international theatrical productions direct to the cineama at the Workmen’s. Please note that live screenings may result in a change in that week’s regular film time-slots in the cinema so please check the schedules carefully.
