Stan & Ollie
2€ on the door. Doors open at 06:45pm. Film starts at 07:15pm
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy have legend status as Hollywood's greatest comedy double act, but in 1953 with their last film several years behind them, legends still need to pay the bills. Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly star as the movie icons, in the true story of what would become the pair's triumphant farewell tour of theatres in the UK and Ireland. However, the shows get off to a slow start and their glory days seem like a distant memory when they arrive on stage to be greeted by underwhelming crowds. The duo struggle to put the past behind them, and buried conflicts resurface just as Ollie’s health is failing. Eventually their charm and humour pays off and they manage to win over the hearts of the public, attracting both old and new fans.
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly are uncanny in the title roles, portraying Stan & Ollie’s characteristic onstage antics, their mannerisms as well as adding depth to their offscreen personas.
