Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres


The Electric Palace Cinema will return on Saturday 2nd January with the New Year Family Favourite:


Hidden inside every smartphone there lies a bustling city. Textopolis, home to all emojis. Each emoji has only one facial expression, except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who has developed multiple expressions despite his parents' best attempts to bring him up right. Determined to become 'normal' like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his best friend Hi-5 and a notorious code breaker called Jailbreak. Together they journey through other apps in their efforts to fix him, but can they avoid the evil Smiler who wants to delete Gene as a malfunctioning emoji? 

With a star-studded cast including James Corden, Anna Faris and Sir Patrick Stewart as a poop emoji, the movie taps in on the concerns of the smartphone generation with some fantastic songs and well known apps that will delight audiences of all ages.

We strive to pick the best films weeks before they are available on DVD. To do this, we are constantly negotiating with the distributors which means we are sometimes not able to announce future features ahead of time. So, please check here regularly and as soon as we are able, we'll announce the films here.
