Whats On

Roald Dahl on Film: James and the Giant Peach (PG) - on Preston Covered Market

Saturday, 20 August 2016 - 7:30pm
NEW LOCATION UNDER COVER!
 
Join us They Eat Culture's Cinema Around the Corner at the new location of Preston Covered Market for an outdoorscreening as part of Saturdays on the Market at Earl Street, Preston PR12QE
 
James’ happy life at the English seaside is abruptly ended when his parents are killed by a rogue rhinoceros and he goes to live with his two horrid aunts. Daringly saving the life of a spider he comes into possession of magic boiled crocodile tongues, after which an enormous peach starts growing in the garden. Venturing inside he meets not only the spider but a number of new friends including a lovely ladybird and sarcastic centipede who help him with his plan to try to get to New York City. A fond and fruitful tribute to the cranky genius of Roald Dahl.
 
 
Dir: Henry Selick Voices: Paul Terry, Jonna Lumley, Richard Dreyfuss
