To celebrate the start of the school holidays, Vue Stroud has announced a variety of animated adventures and summer blockbusters coming to the big screen.
Families can discover the wonderful world of Barbie in her debut live action film, which dazzles its way to the big screen on Friday.
Starring Margot Robbie in the titular role, the film follows Barbie as she is exiled from Barbieland because of her imperfections. But when her home world is in danger, Barbie must return with the knowledge that what makes her different also makes her stronger.
To celebrate the launch of Barbie – one of the summer’s most anticipated family films – Vue is launching a limited-edition candyfloss flavoured Tango Ice Blast and offering a free cup to anybody who brings a real-life Ken to see the film. Those wishing to claim one simply need to bring a companion with valid ID stating a name beginning with ‘Ken’.
For those wanting something a little spookier this summer, Disney’s Haunted Mansion creeps into Vue on Friday 11 August. Based on the popular Disneyland theme park ride of the same name, follow a group of paranormal experts as they explore an eerie mansion and meet all of the spooky residents within.
There’s plenty of animated adventures for families and film fans heading to Vue this summer break, including Pixar’s Elemental. Set in a city where fire, water, land and air residents all live together, this charmingly sweet tale tells the story of a fiery young woman and a go-with-the-flow water guy who discover that despite their opposing elements, they actually have a lot in common. Colourful and clever with plenty of cute and comedic moments, catch Elemental on the big screen now.
