Determined to return to his beloved family in rural Spain, Ferdinand rallies a team of misfits to try and escape. Working from Munro Leaf’s bestselling 1930s children’s book, writer-director Carlos Saldanha (Rio, Ice Age) has applied his considerable creative talents to deliver another animated crowd-pleaser.

  • Wonder Woman – Flix in the Stix at Fiskerton Village Hall. Ferry Rd, Lincoln, LN3 4HU

7.30pm

This blockbuster superhero movie starts with the famous comic book character before she was Wonder Woman, when she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, raised on a sheltered island paradise and trained to be an unconquerable warrior. When an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

RATING

Wonder Woman is rated 12A, which means the film contains material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child. To help them decide, we recommend that they check the BBFCinsight for that film in advance.

Showing at 7.30pm

The wholehearted, accident-prone bear from deepest, darkest Peru returns with a second helping of his endearing brand of good-natured mischief. Happily settled in Windsor Gardens, Paddington takes on a variety of odd jobs to raise enough money to buy a very special book for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. But when the precious book is stolen, Paddington and the Browns have to track down the culprit. Ben Wishaw again voices the lovable if hapless furry character, while Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins reprise their roles as his surrogate parents, Mr and Mrs Brown. Director/co-writer Paul King returns to ensure consistent appeal, and even adds some new characters to the fun, including Hugh Grant as a vain, fading actor and Brendan Gleeson’s fearsome safecracker.

Determined to return to his beloved family in rural Spain, Ferdinand rallies a team of misfits to try and escape. Working from Munro Leaf’s bestselling 1930s children’s book, writer-director Carlos Saldanha (Rio, Ice Age) has applied his considerable creative talents to deliver another animated crowd-pleaser.

  • Wonder Woman – Flix in the Stix at Fiskerton Village Hall. Ferry Rd, Lincoln, LN3 4HU

7.30pm

This blockbuster superhero movie starts with the famous comic book character before she was Wonder Woman, when she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, raised on a sheltered island paradise and trained to be an unconquerable warrior. When an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

RATING

Wonder Woman is rated 12A, which means the film contains material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child. To help them decide, we recommend that they check the BBFCinsight for that film in advance.

  • Paddington at The Venue Cinema, Longdales Rd, Lincoln, LN1 3DY

Showing at 7.30pm

The wholehearted, accident-prone bear from deepest, darkest Peru returns with a second helping of his endearing brand of good-natured mischief. Happily settled in Windsor Gardens, Paddington takes on a variety of odd jobs to raise enough money to buy a very special book for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. But when the precious book is stolen, Paddington and the Browns have to track down the culprit. Ben Wishaw again voices the lovable if hapless furry character, while Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins reprise their roles as his surrogate parents, Mr and Mrs Brown. Director/co-writer Paul King returns to ensure consistent appeal, and even adds some new characters to the fun, including Hugh Grant as a vain, fading actor and Brendan Gleeson’s fearsome safecracker.

Cert PG | 19:30 | Running Time: 103mins
