The Man From U.N.C.L.E
Henry Cavill ("Man of Steel") stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer ("The Social Network") as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie's "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series. Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo's only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe. "The Man from U.N.C.L.E" also stars Alicia Vikander ("Anna Karenina"), Elizabeth Debicki ("The Great Gatsby"), with Jared Harris ("Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows"), and Hugh Grant as Waverly. The screenplay was written by Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, who previously collaborated on re-imagining the classic detective Sherlock Holmes in two hit films. The story is by Jeff Kleeman & David Campbell Wilson and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, based on the television series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." John Davis ("Chronicle"), Steve Clark-Hall ("RocknRolla," the "Sherlock Holmes" films), Wigram and Ritchie produced the film, with David Dobkin serving as executive producer. Ritchie's behind-the-scenes creative team included two-time Oscar (R)-nominated director of photography John Mathieson ("The Phantom of the Opera," "Gladiator"), production designer Oliver Scholl ("Jumper," "Edge of Tomorrow"), editor James Herbert (the "Sherlock Holmes" films, "Edge of Tomorrow"), and Oscar (R)-nominated costume designer Joanna Johnston ("Lincoln"). The music is composed by Daniel Pemberton ("The Counselor")

Romeo and Juliet (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Kenneth MacMillan's famous version of Shakespeare's romantic tragedy set to Prokofiev's magnificent score returns to open the 2015/16 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season. This Romeo and Juliet is rich in the swaggering colour of Verona street life and in sword fights and celebrations, but MacMillan's focus is always on the complex emotions of the young lovers - especially on Juliet as she journeys through the delirious happiness of first love to a shocked, adult perception of her fate. Juliet is one of the most coveted of all ballerina roles, and as MacMillan's ballet enters its 50th year it resonates as deeply with audiences today as when it was first seen half a century ago.

Le Nozze Di Figaro (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Often considered a perfect opera, Le nozze di Figaro represents Mozart's genius at its most lively and delightful. Based on a play that was originally banned for its political content, the fast-moving libretto creates realistic characters made even more human by Mozart's outstanding music. David McVicar's popular staging of this comedy returns in the hands of the leading British conductor Ivor Bolton. The cast is led by the star bass Erwin Schrott, who has sung the role to great acclaim at Covent Garden before, partnered with star Romanian soprano Anita Hartig in the role of Susanna.
- Mon 5th:

Viscera / Afternoon of a Faun / Tchaikovsky pas de deux / Carmen (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015
Enjoy four short ballets in one evening with this quadruple programme from The Royal Ballet.
Carlos Acosta focuses on the dramatic essentials of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of Carmen. As well as choreographing the production, Acosta will dance the lead role.
Liam Scarlett has used Lowell Liebermann's thrilling Piano Concerto No.1 as the inspiration for his similarly audacious choreography in Viscera.
Debussy's evocative score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbins's Afternoon of a Faun, which depicts two ballet dancers as absorbed by their own reflections as they are attracted to each other.
George Balanchine's Tchaikovsky pas de deux uses a fragment of music composed for the 1877 production of Swan Lake for an eight-minute display of ballet bravura and technique.
- Thu 12th:
Of Mice And Men (Recorded) - National Theatre 2015/16 Season (Broadway NY Production)
The hit Broadway production Of Mice and Men, filmed on stage in New York by National Theatre Live, comes to UK cinemas.

Shapiro (Broadway's August: Osage County) and features Leighton Meester (Country Strong, Gossip Girl) and Tony Award winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer).
- Thu 19th:
Jane Eyre (Live) - National Theatre & Bristol Old Vic Production 2015/2016 Season
Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Brontë's story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman's fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms. From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre's spirited heroine faces life's obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart. This acclaimed re-imagining of Brontë's masterpiece was first staged by Bristol Old Vic last year, when the story was performed over two evenings. Director Sally Cookson now brings her celebrated production to the National, presented as a single, exhilarating performance.
- Tue 8th:
Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
These two short Italian operas are each regarded as the composers' masterpiece, and are brought together in a new staging by award-winning director Damiano Michieletto, who sets both operas in a poverty stricken village in 1980s southern Italy, where the Mafia has a hold. The Royal Opera's Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts a cast that includes charismatic Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek, exciting Italian soprano Carmen Giannattasio and the thrilling Latvian tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko.
- Thu 10th:
The Nutcracker (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Christmas simply wouldn't be Christmas without The Royal Ballet's classic production of The Nutcracker. Loosely based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, it opens with the Christmas festivities of little Clara and her family and progresses through a sequence of dreams and enchantments that take Clara on her magical journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sweets.
Peter Wright's enchanting production with its wondrously growing Christmas tree and a rousing battle between the villainous Mouse King and an army of toy soldiers, mines the colour of Tchaikovsky's score, retaining exquisite surviving fragments of the original Ivanov choreography, including the beautiful pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.
- Wed 16th:
Two Pigeons / Rhapsody (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
This delightful Frederick Ashton double bill opens with his setting of Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, using the music's dark turbulence and brilliance to inspire some of his most thrilling choreography. Witty, impassioned and sublime this ballet was the pinnacle of Ashton's romantic style.
The second half of the programme features Ashton's delicate, deceptively comic The Two Pigeons - a work rarely performed and a real treat for ballet fans everywhere.
- Tue 26th:
La Traviata (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
La traviata is regarded as one of Verdi's finest operas, and Richard Eyre's traditional staging, is one of The Royal Opera's most popular productions. The opera tells the story of the Parisian courtesan Violetta Valéry, one of opera's greatest heroines, based on the reallife courtesan Marie Duplessis, who died in 1847 aged just 23. In this revival, Violetta is sung by Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva in her debut with The Royal Opera, following her successful appearance as Violetta at the Glyndebourne Festival.
- Thu 4th:
As You Like It (Live) - National Theatre 2015/2016 Season
Shakespeare's glorious comedy of love and change comes to the National Theatre for the first time in over 30 years, with Rosalie Craig (London Road, Macbeth at MIF) as Rosalind. With her father the Duke banished and in exile, Rosalind and her cousin Celia leave their lives in the court behind them and journey into the Forest of Arden. There, released from convention, Rosalind experiences the liberating rush of transformation. Disguising herself as a boy, she embraces a different way of living and falls spectacularly in love.
- Thu 25th:
Boris Gudunov (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky's historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The originality of the composer's vision of Pushkin's play about Tsar Boris Godunov - who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 - was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated in the second version of the opera, in which Boris finally had its premiere in 1874.
Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions. Keenly awaited will be Bryn Terfel's assumption of the title role - one of the most complex characters in opera - while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.
- Mon 21st:
Giselle (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Giselle is the quintessential Romantic classic, a love affair that begins in the real world and continues beyond the grave. The ballet's title role also offers one of the great challenges of the ballet repertory, as Giselle transforms from an innocent peasant girl, duped into love, to a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death.
For the ballerina this is a role of two contrasting halves: in Act I she must appear naïve and artless, her dancing alive with an earthy enthusiasm; in Act II she transforms into light and air, her dancing so ethereal as to seem weightless. In Peter Wright's production, the dual aspect of the ballet is perfectly achieved: the first act dramatized in rich, naturalistic detail and the second with a spectral, moonlit beauty.
- Wed 6th:
Lucia Di Lammermoor (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers... It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera's most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti's finest works.
The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo.
- Mon 25th:
Frankenstein (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Royal Ballet Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett has chosen Mary Shelley's gothic classic Frankenstein as the basis for his first full-length narrative ballet for the Covent Garden Main Stage. A story of betrayal, curiosity, life, death and, above all, love, it inspires Scarlett to explore the very depths of human nature and our need to find acceptance and a place in the world.
For this exciting new ballet Scarlett returns to the music of Lowell Liebermann, from whom he has commissioned a brand new score.
- Wed 18th:
Werther (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Based on Goethe's novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet's opera tells the story of the poet Werther's hopeless love for Charlotte, who is committed to another man... The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour, - small wonder that Werther is often considered to be the composer's finest work.
The Royal Opera's Music Director Antonio Pappano returns to conduct film, theatre and opera director Benoît Jacquot's classic production. Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo stars as Werther, alongside Joyce DiDonato, who sings her first Charlotte (one of the great French mezzo roles) in this staging.
- Mon 27th:
