Based on a true story, VITA & VIRGINIA details the passionate relationship between literary trailblazer Virginia Woolf, and enigmatic aristocrat Vita Sackville-West. When their paths cross, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost. The ensuing relationship leads to the birth of Woolf’s bold, experimental novel – Orlando.

A daring celebration of an unconventional bond, and a vivid exploration of gender, sexuality, creativity and passion, VITA & VIRGINIA details the love story of two women – two writers – who smashed through social barriers to find solace in their forbidden connection.

Starring Elizabeth Debicki, Gemma Arterton, Rupert Penry-Jones, Isabella Rossellini

Kick-off your Pride weekend with the classic drag comedy SOME LIKE IT HOT starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Before the screening, we’ll discuss the film’s influence on drag in popular culture and the state of drag queens (and kings!) in 2019. Celebrations will continue after the film, so come in your best Hollywood glamour drag!

The pre-screening discussion includes SOME LIKE IT HOT expert David N Eldridge, Senior Lecturer in American Studies at Hull University and Cheddar Gorgeous, member of Family Gorgeous and star of makeover series DRAG SOS which has its premiere on Tuesday 25 June on Channel 4.

The event will also feature appearances from local celebrity drag queens Fanny Nicentite, Regina Sparkles, Gloria Hole and Bobby Mandrell.

In SOME LIKE IT HOT, two down on their luck jazz musicians find themselves out of a job and on the run after the police raid the speakeasy they perform in and they inadvertently stumble upon a gang war. With no money and nowhere to hide, a gig with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators at a Florida beach resort seems like the perfect getaway. There’s just one problem: the Syncopators are an all-female band, and Joe and Jerry aren’t women – yet.

Starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon
