Stephen Hawking’s incredible life story comes to the Brighouse Cinema at the Civic Hall tonight (Thursday).

Directed by James Marsh and filmed in locations including Cambridge, Dunsfold Park Aerodrome and Swinley Forest, “The Theory of Everything” stars Eddie Redmayne as the iconic physicist - a role for which he won the Best Actor Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards.

Cambridge University astrophysics student Stephen Hawking begins a relationship with literature student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones).

Although Stephen excels at maths and physics, his friends and professors are concerned over his lack of a thesis topic.

After Stephen and his professor Dennis Sciama (David Thewlis) attend a lecture on black holes, Stephen speculates that black holes may have been part of the creation of the universe and decides to write his thesis on “Time”.

Tickets priced £5 are on sale at Ryecorn Wholefoods, Harrison Lord, Simply Flowers or on the door. For details, visit www.brighousecinema.co.uk or call 01484 711835.
