Parent & Baby Screening

Emma Stone plays the protagonist in this live-action prequel about a young Cruella de Vil

Directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), with a strong supporting cast and the most incredible array of stunning costumes, this darkly atmospheric Disney prequel has been long awaited.

Set in the 1970s, during the punk rock movement in London, the film follows young, aspiring fashion designer, Estella de Vil (Emma Stone). Employed by Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson), the head of a prestigious fashion house and a renowned haute fashion legend, Estella soon descends onto a path of villainy that leads to her becoming the notorious criminal and Dalmatian fur-obsessive, Cruella de Vil.

Booking is essential. Unless or until guidance changes, six people or two households of any size can visit together as a group. Please only sit directly beside someone from your household or support bubble, and avoid moving seats when you arrive, so we can keep social distancing in place between you and other groups. 

Before the film, you’re welcome to eat and drink in the Cinema Café area, although the cinema foyer spaces won’t be available at the moment, to allow for social distancing.

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.
