Bringing digital cinema and theatre to the heart of the Peak District

Rudolf Nureyev: Don Quixote


Filmed in 1973 in an airport hangar in 40 degree heat over 25 days, Rudolf Nureyev and Sir Robert Helpmann, along with The Australian Ballet created DON QUIXOTE, the film, also known as The Impossible Dream.

With cinematography by Geoffrey Unsworth (Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and Bob Fosse’s Cabaret), the film has been acclaimed worldwide, as the best dance film ever made!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, for the first time cinema audiences around the world will be able to enjoy the re-mastered, restored and re-orchestrated film.  Nureyev, regarded as the greatest male ballet dancer of all time, was at the peak of his career when this film was made.
