This enchanting stop motion feature, set in a 19th century European village, follows the spooky adventures of Victor - a young man who is kidnapped and taken away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious 'corpse bride' while his real wife-to-be waits sadly for him in the land of the living. A tale of optimism, romance and a very lively afterlife, this is a trademark gothic extravaganza from director Tim Burton, full of fun and macabre imagination.
When Zach and his mother relocate to small-town Delaware from New York, he’s not too excited at the prospect. Things start to look up when he meets the girl next door, Hannah, who is keen to show him a more interesting side to the neighbourhood. Their fledgling friendship looks to be short-lived however when her grumpy and reclusive father forbids them from hanging out. But when disturbing noises start coming from Hannah’s house Zach can’t just ignore them. Enlisting the help of eager but awkward school friend Champ, they break into the house and make a discovery that unleashes terrifying havoc on the town. A jump-filled adventure that spins off the original Goosebumps stories while playfully sending them up with plenty of twists and quips.
You may bring a healthy snack to this screening if you wish.
Set to Sergei Prokofiev's classic orchestral composition, this Oscar-winning animated version of Peter and the Wolf contains all the ingredients of the timeless folk tale. There's the vast snowy field where Peter mustn't stray, the little Russian shack that he calls home, and of course, the hairy, big bad wolf. But British animator Suzie Templeton has brought her version alive with some memorable additions. A bad tempered fleabag of a cat and an affectionate pet duck are Peter's comrades at home, while the streets beyond his front door are full of grown-up terrors.
