The latest offering at the Reel cinema in Grantham is 300: Rise of an Empire (15).

The inevitable follow-up to 300 from 2006, this sequel tells the story of Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) who leads the charge against invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy (Eva Green).

The next live screening at the Reel is The Sleeping Beauty from the Royal Opera House on March 19, starting at
