The film everyone is talking about.
The most exciting musical motion picture of a generation…

Winner of six academy awards ® including Best original score, best original song & best director. It is being described as the film of its generation, capturing the hearts of everyone whilst breaking records around the world. Now La La Land will be brought to audiences like never before, the ultimate immersive experience via a huge screen accompanied by a 60-piece orchestra.

The score for La La Land, composed by Justin Hurwitz who also scored director Damien Chazelle’s previous feature films Guy and Madeleineon a Park Bench, and Whiplash, has also received critical acclaim, particularly for the film’s show-stopping songs City of Stars and Audition (The Fools Who Dream).

Having garnered universal critical acclaim, La La Land is a reinvention of the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema for modern times.

Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, La La Land tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.

La La Land received 14 nominations at the 89th Academy Awards ®, and picked up six awards, most notably for Best Director, Best Actress, as well as Best Original Song for ‘City of Stars’ and Best Original Score.

It also received seven nominations at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, winning incredibly in all seven categories including Best Motion Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Original Score.

Funny, romantic and utterly charming, with captivating performances from its two stars.
