Book cinema tickets for Viceroy's House

Viceroy's House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. In 1947, after 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) became the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people. As negotiations wore on, conflict erupted...

Gurinder Chadha's film examines these events through the prism of the Mountbattens and a romance between young Hindu Jeet (Manish Dayal) and his Muslim bride-to-be Aalia (Huma Qureshi). The young lovers find themselves caught up in the end of Empire, in conflict with the Mountbattens and with their own communities, but never ever giving up hope.

The 6.00pm screening on 6 Mar will feature a post-film Q&A with director Gurinder Chadha.

All screenings of Viceroy's House will have audio description, and the screenings at 20:30 on Wed 8 Mar, 15:30 on Sat 11 Mar and 13:15 on Sun 12 Mar will have onscreen captions.
Screening for carers and their babies on Mon 6 Mar at 11:00am.
Tickets cost £4.50/£3.50 concessions per adult. Screenings are limited to babies under 12 months accompanied by no more than two adults. Baby-changing, bottle-warming and buggy parking facilities are available.
