The Culture at the Cinema series at Regal Camana Bay Stadium 6 starts 2017 with a wonderful comedy. On Jan. 21, there will be one screening of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land,’ starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart.
Following their hit run on Broadway, McKellen and Stewart returned to the West End stage; a performance that was recorded live at Wyndham’s Theatre, London.
One summer’s evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst’s stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.
Also starring the extraordinary Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don’t miss this glorious revival of Pinter’s comic classic.
Sir Ian Murray McKellen, CH, CBE is the recipient of six Laurence Olivier Awards, a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BIF Award, two Saturn Awards, four Drama Desk Awards and two Critics’ Choice Awards. He has also received two Oscar nominations, four BAFTA nominations and five Emmy Award nominations.
Sir Patrick Stewart, OBE began his career with a long run with the Royal Shakespeare Company. His first major screen roles were in BBC-broadcast television and film during the mid-late 1970s, including “Hedda” and the “I, Claudius” miniseries.
In the 1980s, Stewart began working in American television and film, with roles such as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and its successor films; as Professor Charles Xavier in the “X-Men” series of superhero movies; the lead of the Starz TV series “Blunt Talk”; and voice roles such as CIA Deputy Director Avery Bullock in “American Dad!”
In 1993, TV Guide named Stewart the Best Dramatic Television Actor of the 1980s. In 2010, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for services to drama.
