NT Live: King Lear Today at 7pm.
King of Thieves (Cert TBC) Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent and Tom Courtenay lead an all-star ensemble of veteran British actors in the unbelievable true story of the Hatton Garden heist. In 2015, a gang of retired criminals stole valuables worth up to £200 million from London’s jewellery district. It was the largest burglary in British legal history, planned so well the police initially believed a group of super-thieves were responsible for the crime. Right under the authorities’ noses, however, was an unlikely crew of silver-haired crooks whose boredom had brought them together for one last job. Friday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm, Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 7.15pm and Tuesday at 2pm and 7.15pm.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (PG) Sophie finds out more about her mother’s past while seeking guidance on how to handle her pregnancy. Friday and Thursday at 8.30pm and Saturday at 5.30pm.
Luis and the Aliens (U) Saturday at 3.30pm.
Atonement (15) Sunday at 2.15pm.
Swimming With Men (12A) Rob Brydon pulls on a pair of skin-tight speedos to head up this hilarious, fun-loving flick. Unlucky in love, Eric (Brydon) holds nothing back when he plunges into the all-male synchronised swimming scene to win back his wife, Heather (Horrocks). His mid-life crisis leads him to join a group of middle-aged men in the local pool as they train for the world championships in Milan. Newfound confidence grows a nd friendships blossom as the team give everything they’ve got to master ‘the flower’ and ‘the spinning circle’. Oliver Parker (An Ideal Husband and Dorian Gray) rounds out the cast with Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter, Sherlock’s Rupert Graves, Easy Virtue’s Charlotte Riley, and Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’s Jane Horrocks. Laugh-out-loud from the get go. Sunday and Tuesday at 5pm, Monday and Wednesday at 8.30pm.
