Event Cinemas Disney BFF Festival – (Rated G) Between now and March 15th Event Cinemas is featuring some of your Favourite Disney Films with tickets just $8.00 you and your BFF can get tickets and popcorn to share for a reasonable price! This weekend it is Toy Story with The Little Mermaid on 7 & 8 March & The Lion King on 14 & 15 March. Click here to find out more and book tickets.
Military Wives – (Rated M) Inspiring, sweet, funny and very British in all the best ways. Based on a true story this film captures the power music and a common goal can have to forge friendships between the most unlikely people.
Birds of Prey – (Rated MA15+) Not for everyone as there is graphic violence and swearing! For those who don’t mind that, this spin-off from Suicide Squad is able to stand on it’s own which a cast that shines, a script that is for all genders but allows a few lines that will speak directly to women. Highly entertaining for those who can stomach it.
Telethon Community Cinemas – Aladdin & A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon
Get out and see a film under the stars that you won’t find in Cinemas anymore and as an added bonus your ticket will help raise funds for Telethon! Click here to get tickets.
Aladdin – (Rated PG) On this Sunday night you can take the kids knowing you won’t have to try and make them get up for school early the next morning. This live action adaptation with Will Smith is a fun watch. Click here to see my full review of the film.
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon – (Rated G) On Sunday night, for those who loved the first film or the series this is just as good if not better. Combining creativity, British humour and some wonderful animation this film is funny, sweet and entertaining for kids and adults.
Looking for something to just relax and spend time at home with? There are so many options now between streaming services, network TV and Catch up TV or On Demand TV.
Streaming Services – Disney Plus
Get inspired and creative, with the kids or without!
Walt Disney Animation Studios: Short Circuit – (Rated G) Disney opened up to all their staff the opportunity to pitch a story idea and work with some of the newest innovative animation technology to create their own short stories. Watch the ones that were made….. My personal favourite is Episode 1: Puddles. As I like jumping in puddles and have loved the storms we have been having! But watch them all, find your favourite and be inspired to write your own!
Marvel’s Hero Project – (Rated G) The writer of Marvel Comics throughout the decades have taken the inspiration for Heroes from those around them and in this series they go and see kids around America doing some inspiring things and work with them to create a comic based on them, showing them as the heroes they are. This series beautifully highlights how we all are heroes, not matter how young, and have the potential to inspire.
And as always the Sonshine Diary also has plenty of options for your weekend plans.
Whether you go adventuring, plan to have popcorn or cosy up on the couch – I hope you enjoy your weekend plans!
