Onward – U Rating

A sentimental, heart-warming movie by Disney and Pixar, Onward follows the magical adventures of two elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, as they get to spend just one more day with their late dad. Complete with cryptic maps, strange spells, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries as well as quite a few tear-jerking moments (for adults), Onward is a must-watch this summer.

Aladdin (Live Action) – PG Rating

If you enjoyed the 1992 Disney animation, Aladdin, you’re sure to love this blockbuster 2019 live-action remake. Starring Will Smith as the quick-witted, wish-granting Genie, the movie tells the story of lovable street-rat Aladdin who falls head over heels in love with the beautiful Princess Jasmin when she sneaks out to explore the bustling streets of Agrabah. Can Aladdin win her heart, while battling the evil sorcerer Jafar who has his eye on the magic lamp?

Dinosaur World Live – U Rating

Upcoming theatre shows include the unmissable Dinosaur World Live, suitable for children aged 3+. Head to The Drive In for a ROAR-some, socially distanced Jurassic adventure, with Dinosaur World Live bringing live theatre to The Drive In’s stage and big screen. Realistic, fun and educational, this show features a host of magnificent dinosaur puppets including Stegosaurus, Triceratops and the giant, flesh-eating Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The Greatest Showman – PG

Featuring a dwarf named Charles Stratton, a bearded woman named Lettie Lutz, an obese man called Lord of Leeds, an excessively hairy man called Dog Boy and an 8-foot tall man, the Greatest Showman is a tale of self-discovery and acceptance. Following the story of ambitious businessman P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman) and his desire to create a successful circus, this movie is all about the razzle dazzle and includes an epic soundtrack that’ll have you singing along – even when the movie ends.

Frozen II – U Rating

Set three years after the events of the first much-loved film, Frozen II continues the adventures of Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven. Join our beloved Frozen heroes as they embark on a journey beyond their kingdom of Arendelle, in order to discover the origin of Elsa’s magical powers. They also take on a very important mission – to save their kingdom after a mysterious voice calls out to Elsa. Unravelling some painful family secrets along the way, Frozen II is an unmissable journey which guarantees you won’t see the series in the same way.
