Starring Shelley Rees

The hit comedy by the writer of Blood Brothers and Educating Rita is back. And this time it’s in Welsh.

Cool Cymru has landed in Merthyr and for the youngsters life has never been so good; it’s Stereophonics, Catatonia and alcopops all the way for them.

Not for our Shirl. Shirley’s a girl who thinks her best days might be behind her, the years of drudgery and chips and egg have taken their toll. But Shirley’s about to take a leap into the unknown that will rock her world. Join her as she leaves her home for a fun-filled fortnight in Greece that will change her life forever.

Starring Shelley Rees (BBC Radio Cymru, Pobol Y Cwm), Shirley Valentine is the life-enhancing, feelgood comedy that we all need right now. Suitable for learners, fluent Welsh speakers and anyone in between. Bring yourself, bring your friends, but above all bring your sense of humour and join Shirley Valentine on the holiday of a lifetime.

3D 3D Screening


When you watch a film in 3D, you feel as though you’ve stepped inside it. Superb image quality – crisp, bright and ultra-realistic and stunning surround sound bring the story to life around you. You’re not just experiencing the entertainment; you’re right inside the entertainment.

R Relaxed Screening/Performance


Open to everyone, but particularly appropriate for anyone who may find the usual theatre/cinema environment challenging, due to an Autism Spectrum Condition, a learning disability, or a fear of the dark, loud noises or confined spaces.

Relaxed Performances/Screenings provide a relaxed environment, where elements are adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and leaving and re-entering the auditorium during the performance/screening.

Designated 'chill-out' areas are provided outside the auditorium with activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.
