Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Brought to you by Tim Burton, the creative force behind such classics as Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas, this is his unique take on the best-selling young adult book by Ransom Riggs.
Jacob Portman always knew he was a bit different, but when he discovers he’s ‘peculiar’ his life takes on a whole new meaning. After being introduced to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, he meets others who have astonishing powers: invisibility, super strength, mouths at the backs of their heads. He also discovers he has a special purpose in life, and that’s where the real fun begins.
Visually spectacular and a thrill a minute, this is a fantasy movie that you’ll remember long after you’ve left the cinema. Keep a look out for it from the 29th of September.
A Monster Calls
Based on the multi-award-winning illustrated children’s novel, A Monster Calls is the story of a boy who invokes a monster from his imagination that helps him cope with his mother’s terminal illness and the bullying he experiences at school.
A star-studded cast including Sigourney Weaver, Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones brings this powerful and touching story to life under the direction of J. A. Bayona.
