Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS, the most famous musical of all time, first exploded onto the West End stage in 1981. 'Memory', one of its many classic songs, became an instant worldwide hit.

Breathtaking visuals and full digital sound (that has been completely re-recorded with a seventy piece orchestra) will leave you deep into the mysterious world of CATS as you've never seen it before - more intoxicating and magical than you could possibly imagine. With a star cast including Elaine Paige and Sir John Mills.

Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is an eccentric caretaker working for the British National Gallery in London, England. He is going to get fired by the museum's board of directors, because he doesn't do his job and all he does is sleep. But the board instead decides to send Mr. Bean to Los Angeles, where David Langley (Peter MacNicol), curator of a museum in downtown Los Angeles has requested that the board of directors of the British national gallery sends a art scholar to talk about their latest purchase, the famous painting "Whistler's Mother" which military officer General Newton (Burt Reynolds) has donated to the museum, at a opening conference. But Mr. Bean's arrival in Los Angeles causes mayhem, as David invites Mr. Bean to stay with his family and begins causing problems for David's marriage. But Mr. Bean doesn't know anything about paintings and although they think he is a brilliant, eccentric art scholar, he really isn't the right man to protect the painting as his behavior also threatens the painting.

To that end, the British present King Cetshwayo with an impossible ultimatum to provoke a war they are sure they can win easily with their rifles and artillery against native spears. However, that war proves more difficult than the arrogant British commander, Lord Chelmsford, expects as his overburdened army fruitlessly searches for the elusive enemy. However, in the shadow of a hill called Isandlwana, the overconfident British army learns to its sorrow just how badly they have underestimated the tactical skill and might of the Zulu nation.

A pretty young girl, Dulcima Gaskain (Carol White), takes pity on him and decides to help him by cleaning the place. She is happy to be earning money, and he is happy because she is there. Despite being a miserable old bastard, Mr. Parker finds himself falling for Dulcima, and asks her to move in with him, to save her the walk from her house to his farm every day.

One day, while he is at the market, she discovers a whole load of money hidden in an upstairs room, and this changes the relationship between Mr. Parker and Dulcima. She becomes more friendly towards the farmer, now knowing of his wealth, and Mr. Parker decides that he wants her for his bride. Dulcima, however, still sees the gamekeeper, and eventually, Mr. Parker finds out.
