+11am The Nightmare Before Christmas

Jack Skellington – the ‘Pumpkin King’ - is feeling tired of his routine life in Halloween Town; however, when he discovers a magical door leading him to Christmas Town he decides to take over Santa’s job as his own – with disastrous consequences.

This fantastical fairy tale has many of the hallmarks of Tim Burton’s signature style – gothic visuals, dark humour, quirky characters and a Danny Elfman score – as well as a mischievous central character and a warm-hearted love story that make it a treat for young audiences getting ready to trick and treat.


US 1993 Dir Henry Sellick 75 min

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult.

If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
