Technical Information

The first thing you should know about Warwick Student Cinema is that we do not show DVDs, Blu-rays or any other home cinema format media to our audience. Only industry standard equipment is used; this means either showing either real film – both 35mm and 70mm – or DCI compliant digitally-projected movies.

Our society is lucky enough to have installed the first 4K RGB laser projector in Coventry and Warwickshire, in February 2020. Unlike traditional cinema projectors (both digital and film), its light source comprises red, green and blue laser modules instead of a xenon arc lamp. This cutting-edge illumination technology facilitates superior black levels as well as a wider colour gamut to provide the best picture possible. The 4K resolution provides a four-fold increase in picture detail compared to standard 2K systems.

Description

As everyone knows, on Christmas Eve anything can happen, and there is always room for a miracle. However, Love Actually is a lot more than just another romantic Christmas fairytale.

The new Prime Minister (Grant) falls in love with the Number 10 tea-girl (McCutcheon). His sister (Thompson) starts to suspect that her husband (Rickman) is having an affair with his secretary. Meanwhile, unsuccessful and heartbroken writer (Firth) escapes to the countryside to spend Christmas alone, and finds the beginnings of true love with his Portuguese housemaid (Lucia Monis) who doesn’t even speak English. The newly widowed (Liam Neeson) struggles to find the right approach to relate to his lovesick stepson. Superannuated faded rocker (Bill Nighy) is desperate to have a Christmas number one with his cynical version of “Love Is All Around Us”. The brilliant mixture of excellent, experienced actors, including Laura Linney, Keira Knightley, Rowan Atkinson and Billy Bob Thornton, and rising young stars make this movie a real Christmas treat.

All in all, the film explores the theme of love in all its variations by dealing with numerous different interlinking little storylines, giving this film a unique edge in the rom-com genre. Sad, touching, hilarious - all these different faces of love form the glue which binds the movie together. Love Actually is, actually, warm, bittersweet, and touchingly brilliant. The perfect balance of humour and drama, of ‘happily-ever-after’ fairytale stories and sadly unresolved endings is what makes Love Actually truly a one-of-a-kind movie. The charm and magic of this Christmas classic will stick in your mind long after the final credits roll.
