Launched back in 2011, Eden Culture’s main purpose has always been to introduce new and exciting cultural content to our screens. Now included are live operas and ballets, the Eden Comedy Club, Side Street Films, Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen and also Exhibition on Screen – all of which take place at the Eden Cinemas. Providing audiences with a variety of alternative content, Eden Culture also broadcasts music concerts, live events and more.
Opera & Ballets
Eden Culture first started with the broadcast of operas and ballets; live via satellite from the world’s top international theatre houses. Now half way through its 4th season, the programme offers an impressive selection of performances transmitted live from London’s Royal Opera House – from modern masterpieces which continue to push boundaries in the world of dance and music, alongside many beloved classics, and the work of musical geniuses including Verdi, Wagner and Puccini. Showing exclusively in Eden Cinema’s showcase theatre, audiences are to experience that same authentic feel as though watching these stunning shows abroad. Through the use of dimmed theatre lighting, enhanced sound as well as live behind-the-scenes footage before the start of every performance, Eden Cinemas ensures to make each experience a memorable one.

Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen
Committed to further supporting the arts, Eden Culture recently introduced Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen. Including thrilling new productions, each performance will be broadcast from Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre in London. Dating back to 1599, the new Globe was re-opened in 1997 by pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Since then, the theatre has transformed into a unique international resource dedicated to exploring Shakespeare’s work. Truly an unforgettable cinema experience, the 2015 season features some of Shakespeare’s greatest work, all beautifully captured in exceptional high definition and full surround sound.
