Windows 7: IE8 not showing dropdown details?

Windows 7 64bit
IE8 not showing dropdown details?


Not sure if it's just me, or if there's a really obvious default setting that I'm missing here, but when I go to the following site:

Leeds Grand Theatre

None of the dropdowns show any options, just a white box that should contain them. When I had XP and IE8 this was fine.

Any ideas?

Just click on the Compatibility View Icon, and it should work.
