What’s on at Vue cinema: big screen films for half-term


A host of animated adventures and magical moments are heading to the big screen this May half-term – offering ample opportunity to spend quality time with the family.

From the mind of writer and director John Krasinski, starring Ryan Reynolds and the voice work of Steve Carell, family comedy IF brings the imaginative world of imaginary friends to life on 17 May at Vue Stroud.   

Following a young girl who discovers she has the power to see everyone’s imaginary friends, IF tells the charming tale of fun and friendship as our hero makes it her mission to reunite these unique and colourful characters with their own children.

Returning to the big screen for their feature animated debut, this May half term sees the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagne-loving indoor cat Garfield back on the big screen for his biggest adventure yet with The Garfield Movie on 24 May.  Voiced by The Super Mario Bros. Movie’sChris Pratt, Garfield’s life is turned upside down when the cosy life of couch coasting goes out the window as he’s unexpectedly reunited with his long-lost father, scruffy street-savvy cat Vic. 

From the comforts of home, Garfield and his canine pal Odie must team up with Vic to pull a hilarious high-stakes heist in the great outdoors, packed with thrills, chills and maybe a quick snack or two.
