The Power of the Dog (12A)

Parent and Baby Screening

Kirsten Dunst in The Power of the Dog

Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst conquer the Western in Jane Campion's brooding melodrama

After a 12 year break from the big screen, Jane Campion is back with her adaptation of Thomas Savage's 1967 novel The Power of the dog, featuring a powerhouse cast.

Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank (Benedict Cumberbatch) inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her son (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.

New Zealand/Australia, 2021, Dir. Jane Campion, 126 min

Our Parent and Baby screenings are designed for adults to enjoy the latest film releases with their young babies, in a relaxed atmosphere with gentler lighting and sound. Screenings are suitable for babies of 12 months or under. Up to four adults can accompany a baby, but adults without a baby will not be admitted.

We have plenty of dedicated space for you to park your baby buggy. For health and safety reasons, we cannot allow buggies inside the cinemas.
