Francis Lee follows up God’s Own Country with film every bit as immersive, tactile and emotionally powerful. In this fictionalised account of the life of the 19th century palaeontologist Mary Anning, Kate Winslet plays the pioneering scientist with Saoirse Ronin a gentlewoman who falls in love with her while staying in Mary’s beloved Lyme Regis for a period of seaside recovery. Lee shows again his power to conjure vivid textures and a sense of place - the salty, sandy cottage in Lyme, the weight of a fossil or tool, the roar of the sea – underpinned by first rate cinematography from Stéphane Fontaine (A Prophet, Rust and Bone, Jackie). But at its heart this is a love story, and one of great passion, intimacy and candour with Winslet and Ronin both exceptional alongside a strong cast (Fiona Shaw, James McCardle). [Advised Cert 15]

WHAT PRECAUTIONS IS BROADWAY TAKING?

We want you to have the safest experience possible at Broadway and have put in place the following measures:

  • Implemented allocated seating and reduced capacity in each screen to allow for social distancing. Tickets purchased online and in person will automatically block two seats either side of you and/or your group. We have also blocked every other row in all screens
  • Changed our air conditioning to 100% fresh air circulating from outside of building
  • Installed hand sanitising stations at entrances, exits, outside screens and at multiple points within Broadway
  • Staggered film times to allow for social distancing and safe entry and exit from the building
  • Increased cleaning times in screens and across Broadway
  • Provided staff with new branded uniforms so they are easily identifiable, and visors/facemasks and PPE in order to carry out their tasks safely
  • Reduced the number of tickets customers can book in one transaction from 10 to 4
  • Broadway staff will be asked to declare at the start of each shift that both themselves and members of their household are symptom-free
  • Installed perspex screens at all point of sale
