See the new Doctor Who on the big screen when The Dukes cinema shows the first episode starring Peter Capaldi on August 23.

Doctor Who makes a spectacular return to the big screen in a feature-length premiere episode of series eight - Deep Breath(PG) - and will be followed by a live by satellite Q&A session with the man himself.

This screening follows the success of the global cinema release of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary episode last year which was screened worldwide, allowing fans to come together to watch the show like they had never been able to before.

Tickets for the screening are £11/£10(a £1 transaction fee applies when booking online).

This new screening is the first time that The Dukes has broadcast an iconic television drama.

However the Lancaster cinema has been screening satellite broadcasts of popular London stage plays since the National Theatre Live scheme began.

And there’s more exciting news for fans of these theatre screenings as it has been announced that A Streetcar Named Desire, the fastest-selling production in the Young Vic’s history can be enjoyed live on the big screen on September 16.

Gillian Anderson plays Blanche DuBois in Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece.

Tickets are priced £14/£13 concessions (includes £1 per ticket fee when booking online).
