Sir Elton John

The film Rocketman, certificate 15, is back in Thirsk by popular demand. It is possibly the best rock film since The Who broke new ground with "Tommy" - the first rock opera.

This is the story of the talented lad from Pinner who went (more or less) from rags to riches, and to flamboyant costumes that make Kylie and Madonna look like charity shop castoffs!  This highly imaginative drama carried along by the music charts the progress by a mixture of flashbacks and fantasies. Great choreography, and perfomances by Taron Egerton (Eddie the Eagle), Richard Madden (The Bodyguard) and Jamie Bell (County Durham lad who starred in Billy Elliott). You will thrill to the music, and if the drama doesn't move you to tears, you have no heart!

Rocketman - certificate 15 - at the Ritz Cinema Thirsk from Fri 19th Jul to Thu 25 Jul, 7.30pm, with a matinee 2.30pm on Wed 24 Jul. Tickets £6, Mon, matinee & concessions £5.
