Two of the actors from Blithe Spirit were on The One Show this week, celebrating Valentine's Day. CADOS veterans Ryan Norse and Sara Worswick are due to be married on 5th May and briefly appeared at the London studio to declare their love for each other.

Our Chairman Ian Robinson also made a (less glamourous) media appearance on Tuesday, as the guest on BBC Radio Lancashire's Late Show with John Barnes. He's on from about 20 minutes in.

Listen here:

Both shows are due to expire on Tuesday 21st February.

Comedian Jack Dee has become the fastest-selling show in our history, with all seats for his May 26th show being sold in a matter of hours.

While we're excited, we're also sorry to anyone who's missed out. Please take a look at the rest of our comedy line-up and there'll be something for you. Maybe they've not appeared on Live At The Apollo or hosted a radio show but we guarantee they're among the best there is and you'll have a great night out.


Chorley Empire Community Cinema’s new film listings are out and it looks set to be a season of excitement and variety with the focus on “the best of British”.

With nine films lined up from January to May, the cinema is ready to display some the greatest British features of the last year, along with some older British comedy classics. Tomas Alfredson’s ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ is being screened at Chorley Little Theatre on the 12th February and will give audiences an exciting look into the world of MI6 during the Cold War. ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ will also guarantee audiences a stunning cast, full of the cream of the crop of British drama. Colin Firth returns to screen once more, after huge success in ‘The King’s Speech’, alongside other British film royalty such as Gary Oldman and Mark Strong.

During March, audiences can expect some light hearted comedy in the form of ‘Johnny English Reborn’ where we see Rowan Atkinson returning to the role of the useless British spy. The recent biopic ‘My Week with Marilyn’ will also be showing in March.  This film looks at the famous star Marilyn Monroe and her time spent in England, shooting a film, during the fifties. ‘My Week with Marilyn’ displays actress Michelle Williams in the role of the iconic star and her flawless performance that has been described as award winning. The end of March sees classic British drama returning to Chorley Little Theatre in the form of the sixties moving feature ‘A Taste of Honey’.

Audiences will also be invited to indulge in a delicious cream tea at this screening so they can enjoy the ‘Best of British’ in all forms. ??April at Chorley Empire Community Cinema sees the arrival of the recent remake of the nineteen forty seven tense crime thriller ‘Brighton Rock’, with Richard Attenborough’s icon role of gangster Pinky being taken on by Sam Riley.

Subject to availability, in May we see the controversial and yet highly acclaimed ‘The Iron Lady’ gracing the cinema, with flawless performances from both Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent. The season closes with Steven Spielberg’s latest epic ‘War Horse’ screening at the end of May. An adaptation of the classic book by Michael Morpurgo, this film promises to be a tearjerker and a moving tale of loyalty, friendship and determination.

Chorley Empire Community Cinema has created a season full of different genres, styles and themes and a season that celebrates the very best of British cinema. Tickets for Sunday evening films are £4, Afternoons £2.50. Or buy a Season Ticket for all films for £15.

Tickets are available on the door, or in advance from Malcolm's Musicland.
