Stars: Aneurin Barnard, James Purefoy, Samantha Barks, Morfydd Clark, Dervla Kirwan, Adrian Edmondson.

The Blu-ray also includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of the film, with interviews with the cast and director, and a look at the famed Nostitz Theatre and the beautiful city of Prague. The screening is followed by an optional Lasagne Supper at 7pm for £5 (must be prebooked). Tickets for film £5 on the door.
