Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (12A)

Dir: David Yates 2021 | 142 mins

Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world.

Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers.

But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?

The Bad Guys (U)

Dir: Pierre Perifel 2021 | 96 mins

A crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet - becoming model citizens.

Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys - dashing pickpocket Mr Wolf, seen-it-all safecracker Mr Snake, chill master-of-disguise Mr Shark, short-fused 'muscle' Mr Piranha and sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms Tarantula, aka 'Webs'.

But when, after years of countless heists and being the world’s most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good.

Errol's Garden

“I wish I could have a garden of my own, but all I see out there is concrete and pavement and more concrete...”

Errol loves plants so much that he has them growing out of every pot, pan and teacup he can find in his small flat, to the dismay of his family. He knows that plants need water, sunlight and space. They need a garden. Errol and his sister Tia search through their block of flats for the perfect space, and discover a neglected rooftop full of rubbish.

After Errol and Tia clean up the space, they imagine building a community garden, but first, they will need to convince all of their neighbours to pitch in and help. A grumpy neighbour and some garden pests try to stand in their way, but Errol is determined to make his dream a reality.

Filled with catchy songs, big ideas and a passion for plants, Errol's Garden is an interactive musical for audiences aged 3 - 11 years and their grownups.
