EVENT CINEMA: Cbeebies Christmas Show

This year’s highly anticipated CBeebies Christmas Show is once again coming to the big screen from the theatre stage for a family-friendly feast of Christmas fun, premiering on 30th November and running throughout December.

This 2019 cinema-goers are set to be taken on a winter adventure through an enchanted forest as the story of Hansel and Gretel unfolds. The siblings must overcome the perils of the deep, dark wood in which they are lost, but with the help of the forest’s magical creatures and by not giving up, the pair prove to their family that the only thing that matters at Christmas is being together.
Hansel and Gretel is set against the backdrop and energy of the 1980s, inspiring the music, costume and set to get across the core message: never give up.

Western Stars Plus Pre-recorded Q&A
83m + 30 m Q&A | PG

Bruce Springsteen’s 19th studio album Western Stars was released this year to the rapturous response of fans and critics alike. Springsteen’s elegiac ode to the American West blends lush orchestration with pared-back emotional tenderness. Resolved that he would not be taking the record on tour, Springsteen opted instead to produce a feature-length film as a means of bringing the live experience to music lovers across the world. In the atmospheric surroundings of a majestic old barn, Springsteen (joined by his wife Patti Scialfa, a small orchestra and handful of accompanying musicians) performs his latest record from start to finish, intercut with a series of beautifully-shot vignettes in which he reflects on the songs and ruminates on the loves, challenges and regrets he has faced in his own life.
