Relaxed Screening: Good Luck to you Leo Grande (15)

Relaxed Screening
Saturday 25th June 2022

Dir. Sophie Hyde, UK, 2021, 97 mins. Cast. Emma Thompson, Daryl McCormack.

Nancy Stokes doesn’t know good sex. Whatever it may be, Nancy, a retired schoolteacher, is pretty sure she has never had it, but she is determined to finally do something about that. She even has a plan: it involves an anonymous hotel room, and a young sex worker who calls himself Leo Grande. A charming, intimate comedy about genuine human connections, sex positivity, and female pleasure. McCormack shines as the witty and empathetic Leo Grande, whose chemistry with Thompson’s wonderfully complex Nancy is captured by Hyde’s tender direction.

Everyone is welcome to Relaxed screenings, but we have made them especially suitable to those with Dementia, Autism, and anyone who finds standard screenings overwhelming:

  • The house lights are left on low and the sound turned down a little.
  • There are no pre-feature adverts or trailers and the film starts at the time advertised.
  • Maximum capacity in the cinema will be reduced to 50% (50 people).
  • All tickets are £4. You can book in advance online or from our Box Office. Or you can buy your ticket from the Box Office on the day of the screening.
  • Seating is allocated on our booking system, which means if you book in advance, you will be asked to select a seat. But if on the day you would like to sit somewhere else, talk to a member of the team, and we will do our best to transfer your ticket to another available seat. During the screening, you can also move around, stretch your legs, and change seats, but we ask you to be mindful of other people’s personal space. For safety reasons, please note that running isn’t allowed in the cinema.
  • You can take your own soft drinks and snacks into the cinema. You can also buy drinks and snacks from our Box Office and take them in with you in the cinema. Click here to view the current menu.
  • You are welcome to bring personal items such as blankets, ear defenders, that will help you enjoy the film but do not disrupt other people’s cinematic experience.

To prepare your visit, you can take a virtual tour of our venue on Plymouth College of Art’s website here. Click on the pin marked “Tavistock Place” to start a tour from the main entrance, or click on the pin marked “Plymouth Arts Cinema” for a 360-degree view of our auditorium. Or feel free to pop in during our opening hours (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: 5-8.30pm; Wednesday: 1-8.30pm; Saturday: 1-8pm): a member of our team will be happy to give you a tour of our spaces, including the cinema if it is not in use.

This screening is also CAPTIONED: subtitles will display the dialogue as well as additional auditory information on the screen.
