The Lion King – from July 19
Director Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book) brings new life to the animated classic, with his adaptation of the beloved Disney tale. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
With an all-star voice cast including Donald Glover, Beyoncé and Chiwetel Ejiofor, James Earl Jones reprising his role of King Mufasa, as well as the latest CGI technology bringing eye-popping realism to the proceedings, The Lion King demands to be experienced on the big screen.Find your local Picturehouse and book now
Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans – previews from July 12
The hilarious children’s book series by Terry Deary comes to the big screen! The all-conquering Romans rule the civilised world – and that includes “the stain” that is Britain.

Mixed up in this battle for liberation are the teenage Atti, a reluctant Roman soldier, and Orla, a young Celt with dreams of becoming a warrior like Boudicca. Will they fall on opposite sides or forge a friendship in the chaos of Celtic-inspired rebellion?Book your tickets now
