Special Preview: Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget (PG) (AD) Recorded intro from director Sam Fell
Family Film Week
Not released on Netflix until December 15th, we’re egg-static (!) to be sharing this super early preview with Family Film Week audiences this year!
Having pulled off an escape from Tweedy’s farm, Ginger and the flock find a peaceful sanctuary, far from the dangers of the human world. When she and Rocky hatch little Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete, but back on the mainland, the whole of chicken-kind faces a new and terrible threat.
Featuring an absolutely stonking voice cast that includes Bella Ramsey, Thandiwe Newton, Zachary Levi, Jane Horrocks, Imelda Staunton, Daniel Mays, Romesh Ranganathan and Miranda Richardson (to name but a few!) Book as soon as you can for this hands-down-must-see for young film fans (and grown-up fans!)
Before the film screenings, we’re delighted to welcome an Aardman animator to run super fun model making workshops before the film. Book by adding to your basket when you book your film ticket.
Please note below a change to the original schedule.
Please note the following:
There will be a market on the Ground Floor foyer for Darbar Festival on Sunday 29 so the Centre will be very busy. Please give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes to get to the events on time.
This screening is for families to attend as a group. 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!
Please book early to avoid disappointment.
Dir. Sam Fell UK 2023 97min
This screening comes with HoH Captions and audio description will be available on request.
BSL will be available for short introduction, and the workshops on Sun 29 Oct only.
