In the Heights (PG)

Parent & Baby Screening

Adapted from Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway hit, In The Heights is a foot-stomping new musical that will have you shimmying into summer

Directed by Jon M Chu (Crazy Rich Asians), this hit musical exuberantly tells the story of hardworking Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who runs a bodega in Washington Heights, but dreams of moving to the Dominican Republic to open a beach-front bar. Usnavi is in love with Vanessa (Melissa Barerra) who works in a nail salon but one day hopes to be a fashion designer.

As the summer heat rises so do emotions and excitement as a rumour goes round that someone won the lottery from a ticket bought in Usnavi's store and a climactic power cut wipes the electricity across the neighbourhood.

Bursting with songs, impressive dance numbers and set pieces in a public swimming pool and throughout the streets of Washing Heights, this vibrant musical is full of colour and charm and the perfect film for the summer.

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.

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.
