Disney & Pixar's COCO

Despite his family's generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.


With its adorable stars and catchy songs with a Mexican flavour, Coco won Golden Globes and an Oscar as well as critical acclaim. The Guardian called it 'The Charmer that could bring Pixar back from the dead'.

Evening Movie @ 7pm:

Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. 

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

Running time: 102 mins
Certificate: PG

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.
