THE FLOYD EFFECT - TOWARDS THE DARK SIDE (AND BEYOND) TOUR

Having toured since 2007, The Floyd Effect is renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the iconic music of Pink Floyd.

All of the band members are top quality musicians with pedigrees that stretch across all manner of musical genres and they faithfully recreate the music and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert without recourse to backing tracks, racks of computers or other technical wizardry.

Every note that you hear is played and sung by the band, making each concert a genuine ‘live’ experience powerful, immersive and emotional. And, of course, the music is supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen, two sets of projections, smoke and lasers.

Performing its ‘Toward the Dark Side (and Beyond) tour, The Floyd Effect takes you on a musical journey from Meddle to the Dark Side of the Moon, through Wish You Were Here and The Wall to a Momentary Lapse of Reason and all the way to Division Bell.

Unless you were there the first time around, the music of Pink Floyd was never as real as this.

**** NOT SUITABLE FOR UNDER 12s

FRANTZ (12a)

Rialto Film Night
In German with English subtitles

One of world cinema’s most prolific auteurs, François Ozon (Swimming Pool, In the House) returns with the moving and poetic period drama Frantz, an elegant reimagining of the story behind Ernst Lubitsch’s undersung 1932 drama Broken Lullaby.

In a small German town in 1919, Anna mourns every day at the grave of her fiancé, Frantz, who was killed in battle during World War I. One day she spies a mysterious young Frenchman, Adrien, also laying flowers at the grave. Together they begin to bond over their shared grief, though Anna is intrigued by the enigmatic nature of Adrien’s relationship with her fiancé. As the pair become increasingly close, long buried secrets are revealed that will change the fabric of their lives and take them across a wearied and battle-scarred Europe.

Shot with stunning black-and-white photography, Frantz is a masterfully told story of romance, grief and guilt featuring two remarkable lead performances from newcomers Paula Beer and Pierre Niney. At once graceful and and gripping, it is an intimate and timely exploration of healing and forgiveness across European borders.

“Frantz is the work of a rascal, but a rascal in an unusually reflective frame of mind. Even with its mysteries solved, you can’t help but keep turning it over.” THE TELEGRAPH
